Western Research meets Eastern Tradition



The Power of Breath

Take a deep breath, is what we say when we want somebody to relax

and calm down. This simple advice holds a deep wisdom of the

body-mind connection and that we can influence our mental state

through physical approaches. From the first moment of our life, we

start breathing, we start expressing our inner state and modulate our

physiology through the breath. HOW we breathe influences and

shapes our life through every experience and guides us through life

until the very last moment when we breathe out for the last time.

Indeed, the breath is the body mind bridge and every movement of

the mind, every thought and emotion, are displayed in our breathing

pattern. We breath in the chest and fast when are in trouble, the whole

system is ready to react to outer stressors. When we relax and feel

safe the breath slows down and deepens into the belly. All breathing

patterns are well and important to face all situations that life can

present to us.







Habits cause symptoms over time


Yet, we tend to build habits in our everyday living and the breath

changes over the course of life without us noticing it much. Many

people show a distorted and stressful breathing pattern without a

dangerous situation at hand. Yet, the body has to react to this

pacemaker and build the matching biochemistry in our body.

Stressful breathing causes stressful biochemistry and the while

autonomous nervous system is reacting. Without noticing many of

us are in a current state of physiological stress which reflects on

the mental state as well. With understanding the pathways of our

body and the connection to our mind we can easily alter our inne

r and outer state via the body-mind bridge, via our breath.







The Body-Mind-Bridge


Our bodily functions, as our breath, are expressions of the hidden

movements in our mind. Every thought has a certain vibration and

causes a specific emotion in order to express itself in the material

world. Yet, we are barely in control of the subconscious workings

of our mind. Over our lifetime we cultivate stressful thoughts and

forget how to breath naturally. We exhibit a harmful breathing

pattern which gives our mind the external feedback of danger

again. Like this we remain in a vigilant state, mind and body alike,

that block the higher cognitive functions. As the breath is the body

mind bridge, all thoughts manifest in the breath and all breathing

affects the state of mind.  With certain breathing we can calm our

mind and bring it to a state of calm awareness. We use the breath

to ease the waves in our mind and become relaxed and focused.

A sound breathing influences the physiology of our body, our immune

functions, our thinking patterns, our resilience, our hormone status and biorhythms. Like this we can think clearly and increase the healing and rejuvenating programs of our body. Yet, breath transports much more than just oxygen to our body tissues. Breath is the carrier of PRANA, the life force which flows through every being, the power which keeps us alive and is responsible for our vitality and health.







Prana - The Power of Life


In many traditions and research fields the topic of Prana is

explained and investigated. Different names like Chi or Orgon are

used to speak about the innate power of life, the power that flows

inside and outside of us, filling every being with the spark of life

itself. Prana flows in the so-called astral body, in the energy layer of

ourselves. This is “where” the chakras are located and the Nadis,

the energy channels, transport information and energy to all

compartments of our system. When Prana does not flow, there

is no life. How much Prana we hold inside and how much it flows

determines our vitality and mental as physical health. Blocks can

occur through trauma or toxins and hinder our energy from flowing.

All sorts of symptoms can originate from that exhaustion and lacking

and they can be addressed easily and effectively through only

establishing a sound and healthy breathy pattern without distortions

or harmful habits.








Prana and Consciousness


Prana does not flow through breath alone. It flows together with our

awareness and increases as we become more conscious and

responsible towards our own energy levels. The spiritual benefits of

Pranayama are various and always bring about a higher consciousness,

better self-understanding as well as mental and physical health when

applied in the right way.







The Power of Techniques


In Pranayama you find many different techniques and breathing

exercises. “Which one is the right for me?” is as an important question

as asking for the right medication. You can use Pranayama techniques

to address certain mental or physical issues and have to take our own

constitution and circumstances into account. Jumping on advanced

techniques without understanding the purpose can cause unwished

results and even harm people. So, as powerful as it is, Pranayama

should be applied with cation and understanding.







Your Personal Practice


In this course we will take your personal background into account

and focus on personalized practice for certain conditions and

personal goals. In the beginning practice will be the same for all

as we will establish a baseline to work on and remove the common

obstacles in the breath. Later we will have personal assessments

and determine the right practice for each one of you, so that you

can gain the most of this course.





YOU are important


We all are lifelong students and also teachers to others. Learning

and understanding is endless. I encourage people to ask questions

and share their experiences with the techniques. You will apply the

learned every day and observe the reactions of body and mind. I

recommend to take a journal and note down your daily observations.

Slowly you can adapt your nutrition and daily habits and step by step

move towards a healthy lifestyle. We keep on learning from and through

each other and step by step get prepared for leading our own

Pranayama group. So, I encourage you to take the opportunity to ask

any questions, maybe you have a condition you want to approach or

a friend could need some advice. We are all different in detail and

the same in the core. From others’ conditions and reactions, we can

learn much about ourselves. In this course we create a safe space

where no one has to be shy to share. There are no judgements, only

open learning .







Course structure


This course is structured in a way so you can choose how deep you

want to dive into the sacred science of yogic breathing. In Course

level one you will learn the most basic and powerful breathing

exercises and techniques to establish a sound and healthy breathing

pattern for stable health and mental resilience. With this you will be

able to clean your Nadi system and detox your body, find better

mental skills and increase the flow of Prana, the life force, and your

vitality. After that you can go on with your personal practice

until you feel ready for the next step. In level 2 we will learn more

about specific applications, how to treat diseases through the breath

and explore the effects of directed flow of Prana. You learn how to work

with our energy body shift Prana where it is needed or wanted. The

mental aspect will increase offer the courses so you will reap the

benefits of your practice as a preparation for higher spiritual work as meditation. In both levels the scientific and spiritual background of all techniques are discussed and explained. You will now what you are doing and why (or why not) and can observe the effects on your daily life. In the last level we will meet in person as I will have to touch and observe you keenly to determine the level of exercises. Stronger techniques will be introduced after you having trained for longer period of time. An adaption in nutrition and behaviour are also preconditions to the advanced course.
