Develop Your Breathing
Breath is synonymous with Life. Beyond the obvious it is really the Quality of Life that can be greatly influenced by How You Breathe. In recent years the breath has gained the attention it deserves in terms of mental and physical health. Yet for millennia it has featured as a key component in the inner journey, a spiritual or meditative path, with a necessary requirement that both physical and mental health be accounted for in its process.
Samahita has offered daily classes, bi-weekly courses, and advanced training in breath techniques to more involved levels of prānāyāma since we opened in 2003. Samahita’s founder, Dr. Paul D., has been immersed in breath-prānāyāma pracitce since the mid-1990s. His doctoral research was on “Breath, stress and health”, and he was acknowledged by the Indian prānāyāma-yogi tradition as an expert in the breath (prānācharya).
As Paul carries an ancient tradition of breath practice forward he ensures his fellow senior teachers at Samahita are also highly trained and fully dedicated to daily breath-prānāyāma practice. In addition, ongoing research and writing on the breath and related topics keep Paul and the team at the cutting edge of this “world of breath”. It is our commitment to bring both this practice and well-formed knowledge to all types and levels of interested people that would like to learn, keep up, and enjoy “The Breath”.
