Ancient Sun: Pranayama and Meditation Immersion Training

October 29 - November 2

Ancient Sun: Pranyama and Meditation Immersion Training – 35 + Hours

“Make friends with your Breath, it will introduce you to your soul.” ~ Shailendra Sharma

Breathing is the most essential life function, it governs the flow of life energy and affects every other physiological function. Learning to breathe correctly (most of us do not) can radically affect our health, energy and spiritual connection. Meditation is the main practice for self knowledge, inner peace and connection to the source of life.

This program will help you develop a powerful healing breathwork and meditation practice as the key to health, peace, bliss and longevity and learn to share it with others.

In this program we will dive into the ancient healing sciences of pranayama and meditation.
We will learn about the ancient science of breath and how to create stillness of the mind and spiritual awakening. Breath is the key that that unlocks the power of the Universe. Learning to breathe is a major step on the path to mastery. We will practice breathwork and meditation twice a day. We will explore the science of prana across many ancient sacred traditions. We will also explore the island of Bali and visit ancient temples.

The cost for the immersion is $1008 before August 1st and $1150 after August 1st. If you sign up for this immersion as well as the Blissful in Bali Immersion. *Cost includes lodging, food, all classes, program materials & manual.
