Intro to Ashtanga Pranayama


Kim Johnson

“The first thing I noticed when I began practice, and it’s pretty common experience, is you [become] warm and may start to sweat. Sometimes when I was to determined to ‘do it right’ I felt light headed or dizzy, or pressure in my head.

It must be approached with a sweet and easy way; we aren’t trying to breath longer or hold our breath longer. When we practice, we are conducting the flow of prana.

There’s a quote I especially like by Sadhu Guru that reminds me of this, ‘Every newborn baby knows how to breathe. And every unborn baby knows how to hold its breath.’

Pranayama isn’t something to work hard at. The softer you go about it the easier it is.” — Kim Johnson
