The Dynamic Power of Breath

with Swami Karunananda, E-RYT 500
Price: $150.00

The yogic science of pranayama, or breath control, is a powerful key to a happy, healthy, and fulfilling life. Experience techniques that can energize, detoxify, rejuvenate, and relax the body, while bringing balance, focus, and calm to the mind. Learn how the dormant subtle energy within can be awakened, leading to profound spiritual awareness. All this is possible simply by working with the breath.

We will explore pranayama theory and techniques, and learn how to deepen and develop an ongoing practice. 

Topics include:

  • Pranayama and health
  • Pranic healing visualization
  • Prana (energy) and the mind
  • Pranayama and meditation 
  • Prana and the subtle body
  • Pranayama and spiritual awakening 


These ancient, classical teachings enhance our physical and mental wellbeing, equip us to skillfully deal with life’s challenges, and enable us to realize our highest potential. Immerse yourself for a weekend and emerge with a practice that will sustain you for years to come.

Live sessions with Swami Karunananda on Saturday and Sunday at 11 am–1 pm and 3–5 pm ET.

You will have access to the video recordings for 8 weeks after the program ends, until December 26.

In addition, you will have access to the Ashram’s Live Hatha Yoga classes at 5 pm ET, recorded Ashram meditations, and inspiring talks with Sri Swami Satchidananda. You will also have access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.

What a privilege to be taught by Swami Karunananda. Her depth of experience and clear teachings finally got me the understanding of pranayama that I have not been able to find in a long search.
