Join Phillip for a 10 minute tutorial on a staccato breathing technique that will help deepen your meditation practice and cultivate calm in your daily life. In yoga, we say that prana is the life force energy that runs through our bodies, and ayama means to extend, or control. Together, they translate into pranayama, an integral part of the yoga practice that helps to channel the body’s energy and increase mental clarity and overall health.
