What you’ll learn in a typical day at Gyan Yog Breath Yoga School

The daily pranayama class aims to improve the functioning of your respiratory system which will simultaneously improve all other body systems as well. During the teacher training, you will learn about and experience the importance of the breath, slow and diaphragmatic breathing.  Most of the common diseases nowadays are related to irregular and short breathing which results in stress and fear.

Hatha Yoga is also known as the gentle, smooth, yet challenging root of yoga. As the foundation of all yoga styles that we know today, hatha yoga gives you a strong base in order to teach various styles later on. The morning hatha yoga practice aims to build up strength, increase flexibility and most importantly connect your body, mind and soul. Your asana teacher will pick you up from where you are at and design diverse and rewarding classes. You will become familiar with the Sanskrit names, sequences and modifications.
