event_185720802Pranayama Breathing:  This ecstatic breathing practice  is done lying on the ground, using a simple and specific breathing technique designed to move you into altered states of consciousness, deep purging, releasing, and profound states of awareness. Markus will facilitate by assisting each individual to maintain the breath and move energy within the body, as well as assisting in the removal of blockages and the integration of the pranayama experience.

Pranayama is a Sanskrit word meaning “restraint of the prana or breath”. The word is composed of two Sanskrit words, Prana, life force, or vital energy, particularly, the breath, and yama”, to suspend or restrain. It is often translated as control of the life force (prana). When used as a technical term in yoga, it is often translated more specifically as “breath control.”

Using a combination of energy techniques, vibrational healing, sound, and Shamanic practices Markus creates a sacred and protected space for this inner Shamanic journey to occur… He has personally engaged in Pranayama breathing techniques in his own practice for over 10 year and has facilitated over 60 group journeys all over the USA, Canada, and Australia…   Be prepared for a journey into unprecedented states of consciousness.

 

- “When I went to this instruction in Pranayama Breathing I wasn’t sure what to expect, the experience was quite wonderful. I felt that Markus was a incredibly gentle teacher. I had some fear going into this but with his guidance was able to experience something I had never experienced before. I look forward to his next visit.”

- “I really didn’t know what to expect when I attended this class. I felt so safe and loved in the group, I wanted to just sit back and soak it all in. Then the breathing exercise started and I felt completely overwhelmed with love and light – it made me tingle from my fingertips to the tips of my toes. It was so delightful. It’s a day later and I still feel tingly and light.”
