Breathe health! Ashtanga, pranayama and meditation with Sami Mälkiä Fri 4 to Sun 6 September

In Friday’s Ashtanga practice, we will work to strengthen our bodies with selected asana from the Primary and the Intermediate Series. The asana will be suitable for everyone. In mysore-style classes on Saturday and Sunday morning, each of us will concentrate on our own rhythm of breathing. In the breathing exercises, we will strengthen the life force in our bodies and minds. Regular practice of pranayama balances the nervous system and enhances the natural immunity of the body. Come and breathe health into your life!
