About the event

Āsana and Prāṇāyāma Intensive, with Pedro Kupfer Intensive value: 70€ Limited places, registration until April 15

We invite you to participate in this intensive about āsana and prāṇāyāma with Pedro Kupfer in Portimão. The meeting consists of a combination of practical experiences and lectures on āsania, the art of mindful living in the body, and prāṇāyāma, the science of yogic breathing. Still, we will have experiences and reflections on self-knowledge throughout the program.

The participant will be invited to get to know themselves better through conscious observation of the bodymind and the powerful effect these practices have on it, immersing themselves in peace and fullness. Participants will receive a syllabus in PDF format with the course content and other support materials, which will be sent by email.
