With Gabriel Halpern
Breathing Practices & Restorative Yoga Poses
Mastering postures confer a flexible body, calm nerves, and mental steadiness. That is
the pre-requisite for working with our breath (pranayama). Yoga is the best antidote for being
burnt out, or out-of-sync with your own life rhythm, fluctuating back and forth
between being anxious or depressed. Restorative yoga is simple, safe, and effective.
As B.K.S. Iyengar says, “relax yourself before you condition your physiology.” Breath awareness techniques while lying down, as well and pranayama basics will be covered. If you want greater peace of mind, come to this class!
Gabriel Halpern has enjoyed an illustrious career of teaching yoga in Chicago, nationally and internationally. He studied restorative yoga and pranayama with B.K.S. Iyengar in Pune, India.
