TO LIVE MINDFULLY...

"Om
Sahanavavatu, Sahanaubhunaktu, Sahaviryam Karavavahai, Tejasvinavateetamasthu, Ma vidvishavahai,
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti"

May we be protected, together.
May we be nourished, together.
May we progress with vigor, together.
May the fire of knowledge be kindled in Us.
May we never be in conflict. 
- Taittiriya Upanishad, 600 BCE

YOUR BREATH, YOUR EXPERIENCE

ONE BREATH AT A TIME...

 

Our classes help you relax, slow down and find concentration, ease and balance through the simple act of deep, controlled breathing. The intimate connection between breathing and regions of the brain that control attention, sleep and stress regulation means that loving attention to your breath can make it easier to manage your mind and emotions. Each class ultimately helps guide you to a regular, fun, home practice, which once established, serves as your own nurturing space for self-care, creativity and insight. 

 

 

BREATHE BLISS

ALL LEVELS PRANAYAMA AND MEDITATION.

WHY "BREATHE" IS A MISSION

Breathe Meditation was founded in January 2020 in Washington D.C., in order to cultivate the breath not just as a powerful tool for calm amidst chaos, but as the most effective catalyst for deep meditation.

 

Just months later, the world was reeling under the onslaught of a pandemic, which is re-orienting the very paradigm of our lives, and compelling us to prioritize space and peace within our inner landscape.

 

The practices offered here are a timely and modest attempt to support and foster concentration, meditation and peace in our communities, using the one tool that is powerful, supremely nurturing and always available - our breath, our life-force, our prana.

 

Breathe Meditation is rooted in the infinite love, discipline, devotion and dedication (maha-tapas) with which the sacred knowledge (atma-vidya) of Pranayama has been cultivated and transmitted over millenia by the various lineages of teachers from the Indian sub-continent. The practices offered are infused with the organic flow of mindfulness approaches, my own personal practice of Kriya Yoga and inspired by insights from the field of contemplative neurosciences.
