    Erik Hanzen - Yoga Teacher Training Prana Yoga StudioWith Erik Hanzen

    10:30am-12:30pm
    $35 + gst

    For breath is life, and if you breathe well you will live long on earth. ~Sanskrit Proverb

    Healing Breath Therapy is a healing system based on the natural intelligence of the body.  This therapy utilizes the power of the breath to heal and balance the mind and body combining techniques of yogic breathing and shamanic breathing.  The breath is the most powerful source of life force energy (prana) which can heal the body, open blockages, reveal patterns or addictions, assist in the releasing of past trauma or abuse and accelerate spiritual growth.

    “This powerful therapy is safely and expertly guided, each session offers a new experience in healing, self exploration and growth.” D.N.
