Learn how to observe the natural breath in order to experience inner peace and to change negative thought patterns.
The purpose of technique, referred to by Patanjali as Prana Samyama, is to bring balance and harmony to the mind. In the long term it has the power to transform negative mind patterns leading to profound peace and happiness. Meditation on the natural breath is central to Yoga and Buddhist systems, as well as to contemporary mindfulness models.
The course offers the opportunity to learn and practice the technique in a focused and sustained way over 6 weeks with the support of an experienced and certified Traditional Yoga teacher to guide you through the progressive stages and answer any questions that may arise. It is taught in the tradition of Patanjali, through a series of guided meditations by Dr. Kumar, maintaining a direct link to the original instructions and scriptures in which they have been preserved for centuries.
Suitable for anyone over the age of 15 who wishes to learn a truly transformative meditation technique.
Suitable for beginners.
Please note that the sequential steps of the technique will be taught each week so it is advisable to attend all six classes.
“Dr. Kumar’s meditation method almost instantly transformed my meditation practice. Vanessa is a truly inspiring teacher, able to guide you through the various stages. Highly recommend this course to anyone wishing to experience this life-enhancing practice.“ – Alice Day
“I have been meditating for some years, but it’s been invaluable to hear Vanessa explain the profound thinking behind this particular technique and guide us gently through each step. Sharing the experience with a class really takes it to a different level. I have found the course both deeply relaxing and enriching – and we’re only half way through it!” – Katie Stephens

I enjoy sharing the never-ending art of connecting breath with movement and harmonising the mind with body and spirit. There’s something remarkable and wonderful that happens in this space of opening and surrendering to the moment with all your fear, pain, uncomfortableness and resistance. The resistance starts to melt away. It’s like you’ve come home to place you know but forgot about somehow. Once you have a taste of this you want more.
I decided to develop my practice further by undertaking the Yogacampus (London) Teacher Training Diploma (2012 – 2014). I was also encouraged to undertake Yoga intensives with teachers including Richard Freeman, Judith Hanson Lasater, Dr Timothy McCall, Bo Forbes and Doug Keller.
More recently I’ve been exploring the subtler aspects of Yoga working with pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation under the expertise of the delightful Dr Kumar of Traditional Yoga. I love exploring how yoga and meditation hone in on the inherent intelligence of the body and relax the mind so that we can work as a unified field of energy – one team.
