It is an opportunity to learn tools for a continued sense of inner balance, inspiration, and a way to facilitate that for others.

Explore the origins of the ancient healing practice of Pranayama, Prana meaning life force & Ayama meaning to expand. Attendees will be introduced to the gentle pattern of breathing known to increase productivity, reset the central nervous system, promote integration of the brain’s left & right hemispheres, and create the peaceful internal environment necessary for healing, emotional/mental processing, and physical wellbeing. This event will be facilitated by Michael Brian Baker, the highly celebrated founding member of The Breath Center, teacher of oral traditions, & arts practitioner in Ojai CA.

  • Calm the over stimulated mind
  • Reset the central nervous system
  • Secure Healthy Boundaries
  • Purify non-ductory glands
  • Re-establish inner connection
  • Revitalize, Replenish, Rejuvenate

This will be a simple to practice breath that is not related to rebirthing or holotropic patterns. It will be practiced laying down, relaxed very little effort required. – Very very good for the body mind and soul.
