Orbital Breathing

Moving into More Advanced Poses
with Michael Lucey
Saturday, May 21, 2–5pm | $55


In the Moving Into More Advanced Poses Series of workshops, students will have the chance to explore less familiar poses by learning their connections to more familiar ones, and to explore the relations between different categories of poses. We will investigate how what is learned in one category of poses transfers over to the practice of others.

Prashant Iyengar often mentions “circuitous breathing, rhythmic breathing, orbital breathing. In this workshop, we will learn what orbital breathing is and how it can help us in our practice of different asanas.

Michael Lucey discovered Iyengar yoga in 1982. From his very first class, he has been fascinated by the many ways yoga can transform your relation to your body, mind, and breath. He completed the Yoga Room Advanced Studies Program in 1993.
