This is the first of a two-part workshop with this year's yoga teacher trainers in Doha. We will discuss basic anatomical considerations around breathing and how this relates to entry-level Pranayama techniques. We also discuss Pranayama in the wider context of yoga practices--how this helps one balance the nervous system as they develop openness and flexibility through Asana practice. And how this also relates to a seated practice. 

Specifically, techniques to calm the nervous system are discussed by default at this entry level. A more personalized approach is available through an advanced teacher in a dedicated, immersion setting.
