On the show today, I invited back our frequent guest, Prasad Rangnekar. What prompted me to ask him to come back on the show was to talk about the new online course that he is launching on July 14th, 2022 — literally a week away as this episode drops — called Prana & Pranayama. I thought it was just perfect timing to discuss this topic with him.
It's a five-week in-depth course exploring wider dimensions of Prana & Pranayama, beyond breath and breathwork, by reconciling scriptures & science. I myself am also joining this course because I’m a believer in the depth of knowledge, wisdom, and simplicity with which he communicates. It’s absolutely something that is much needed in today's yoga world.
Think of this episode essentially as a preview of his new course. We go about answering questions like what is prana according to the scriptures and the spiritual significance of pranayama and how it can be applied. In Prasad’s online course, he's also going to be helping all the practitioners build what is called a sadhana practice.
I highly encourage you to explore the syllabus of what he's teaching and see the depth of wisdom and knowledge that is sitting right there just waiting for you to come and learn. It's definitely something that we could all benefit from!
