Den yogiska vägen till ett helt och hållbart liv
Every week we build ourselves stronger through the art and practice of pranayama. We move from gross to subtle, week by week, first setting the foundation and building from there. Ulrica guides you through your journey, giving you some extra material to boost your pranayama practice with content and technical advice. Each seven day period you work with 1-2 techniques daily, always followed by some short asana practice to get in your body, and always with 5-10 minutes Savasana at the end in order to settle the energies to gain from the practice. The goal is a daily practice, to really discover the benefits from the techniques.
