Learn Advanced Yoga Meditation and Breathwork with Expert Teacher Richard Freeman

Pranayama (literally “to release life energy from its bounds”) is considered the central practice that will lead you into the true promise of yoga: the experience of freedom itself. When performed correctly, this powerful form of conscious breathwork reveals the intricate web of your thoughts, physiology, and energetic patterns—helping you learn to quiet the mind, heighten receptivity, and open to what is referred to in yoga as “the intrinsic radiance of being.”

With Pranayama, Richard Freeman—who is widely considered one of the world’s foremost Western instructors of Ashtanga yoga—brings you a six-month online video training course in this long-guarded art.

Featuring six 75-minute sessions with Richard plus a wealth of lessons and practices, Pranayama brings you into the company of one of today’s most sought-after teachers to explore:

  • The history and essential principles of pranayama
  • Opening the internal channels of flow and awareness that allow the full spectrum of the breath to manifest
  • The mysterious power of pranayama to soothe and revitalize the body, mind, and spirit
  • How pranayama serves as a bridge between yoga’s active, outward practices (like asana) and yoga’s internal meditative or philosophical facets
  • Demonstrations offering specific guidance in pranayama while seated or lying down
  • How pranayama awakens and strengthens your body’s natural intelligence

Richard Freeman teaches that every breath we take can become a guiding thread into the depths of yoga—a place of freedom and immediacy of awareness that begins on the practice mat and gradually extends into each moment of our lives. Pranayama shares the wisdom of Richard’s four-plus decades of teaching and practice to illuminate your own continuing exploration of this essential skill.

Note: Experience in yoga is highly recommended before enrolling in this course.
