Body Balance and Breath Work (Pranayama)

Thanyapura’s Pranayama Yoga class focuses on working to achieve correct body balance and breath. ‘Pranayama’ is Sanskrit and translates as ‘breath or life force’. It is the fourth ‘limb’ of the 8 limbs of Ashtanga yoga. Thanyapura’s instructor will guide students through a series of breathing exercises to help them master breath control.

Yoga is a wonderful practice that benefits the individual in many ways. Regular students can expect to see an increase in their strength from building up tone without bulking out the muscles, an increase in flexibility, improved respiration, energy and overall vitality, weight loss and a stable metabolic rate, improved cardiovascular health and overall athletic performance. Yoga benefits athletes and individuals from all disciplines as it builds on the foundations any athlete needs to improve their own sporting focus. It is also builds awareness, as each movement demands focus and attention.

Although yoga has been practiced for thousands of years, originating around the 5th or 6th Century BCE in ancient India, it has only relativeley recently gained prominance in the West – in the 20th Century. Today, millions of people regularly practice forms of yoga, and aspects of its influence can be found in gyms, schools, places of worship, before or after competitive sports games, and in homes around the world.
