When we pay attention to our breathing it becomes clearer that the way we organise our bodies will have an effect on the way we breathe - and that breathing itself affects the body. The relationship is subtle and complex. In this workshop we will explore the way the body self regulates breathing, through posture and movement, so as to examine what is interfering with the breath. We will also use some pranayama techniques to free up and ‘map’ unfamiliar ways of breathing.
A student of over 30 years and teaching for 22, Pete originally taught Iyengar Yoga. Studies in Osteopathy and meeting other yoga teachers changed his direction, to pursue a more bio-mechanically friendly approach to asana. He currently teaches a broader ‘humanistic perspective’ to make yoga more accessible to the western mind by grounding the physical, physiological and psychological effects of practice in a rational context.
