Energy and Ease
Building a Pranayama and Meditation Practise
A Donation Based 6 Week Course


'Energy and Ease' is designed for beginners and established students. The course will guide you to develop a sustainable self-led pranayama and meditation practise on the mat that you can apply to find greater ease in everyday life. 

Each lesson has about 1 hour of video content and 'homework' exercises, that will enable you to become established in a sustainable practise with strong foundations. Variations are provided to meet your individual abilities.

Please note 'Energy and Ease' is a moderate yet achievable challenge.
