Pranayama, the yogic science of breath control, is a powerful way for you and your students to raise energy and channel it into spiritual growth and life mastery. This program provides a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the techniques and philosophy of pranayama as taught in the Tantric Hatha Yoga traditions. Practicing under the guidance of an experienced teacher, you will learn a variety of pranayama techniques and a methodology for guiding and teaching them. We will experience the possibilities for meditation in daily practices that explore pranayama and bandhamudra (locks) with asana. This course includes ‘practice teach’ opportunities to increase your understanding of how to safely integrate these powerful breath practices into your personal yoga practice and the classes you may teach.

About William Hufschmidt

William Hufschmidt  (E-RYT 500)  – Williams’s journey of healing began at age 14 as he recovered from a car accident. Watching his breath and his thoughts helped to manage the pain and healing of a fractured femur. Progressing through months of traction, a wheelchair, a few casts, and eventually crutches, it took William two years to fully regain control of his body. This early experience fortified his belief that we can heal from anything if we consciously navigate our healing process. In 1989, William took his first yoga class with Lorna Brown, and subsequently taught his first classes with her guidance and encouragement. In 2001, William completed the 200-hour-level Yoga Teacher training at the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, and in 2007, completed Kripalu’s 500-hour training. In 2002, William first studied Thai Yoga Therapy with Patricia Kilpatrick and Saul David Raye, and in 2006 studied at Thailand’s esteemed Wat Po in Bangkok, then continued on with “Mama Lek” Chaiya in Chiang Mai.  In 2012, William completed training with the Guild for Structural Integration in the Rolf Method for Structural Integration. William’s teachers are Yoganand Michael Carroll, Vidya Carolyn Dell’uomo, Saul David Raye, Pierce Salguero, and life itself. As a teacher, William empowers students to explore their edges and potentials. “We all do not walk the same path towards self-discovery. However, we are all storehouses of infinite wisdom and creativity. Through the practices of yoga, breathwork, sacred touch and play, we can tap into inner reservoirs of energy and possibility.” Visit William at his website
