Intro to Pranayama (Breath work) with Richard Rosen

On and Off Your Mat Yoga Podcast

For our 41st episode, I sat down with Richard Rosen. Richard a renowned yoga teacher and the author of five books on yoga. He trained in Iyengar Yoga in San Francisco, and has been teaching for more that 30 years. He, Clare Finn, and Rodney Yee founded the Piedmont Yoga Studio (now called "Nest Yoga") in Oakland in 1987. He is a contributing editor of the Yoga Journal and president of the Yoga Dana Foundation. He has written hundreds of reviews of yoga books and videos for magazines including Yoga Journal, and has given workshops in countries all around the world. Today we sat down to talk about the basic concepts around pranayama.5 BIGGEST TAKE-AWAY FROM THIS EPISODE1- You can't push yourself in pranayama. You have to remain calm, patient, take your time and back off from your desire to get something done. If you feel, anxious, frustration or anger, you're pushing to hard.2- When we are not breathing efficiently, generally in comes form tension in the body, and emotions like fear that make us contracted.3- To begin a breathing practice, start by getting comfortable with watching the breath. Don't do anything. Let the breath have it's own way.4- Be patient, do it frequently, start laying down on the floor, add support under the spine to open the chest. Sandbags and earplugs are also very useful to support you in your practice.5- Pranayama is usually done after asana and a gateway to meditation. Asana prepares you to sit and then, Savasana is the most important preparation for pranyama. You actually prepare for pranayama by doing nothing. If you cant sit in alignment, breathing becomes difficult so stay reclined and breathe laying down.QUESTIONS HE ANSWERED DURING THIS EPISODE :Can you tell us about yourself and your yoga journey?Can you explain what is prana and pranayama?You talk about becoming a witness when we practice… What does that mean?Why you are passionate about this particular limb of yoga?What does it mean to be an efficient breather? What are the common defects of the breath?What are the elements of the breath?How do we prepare for pranayama? What’s the foundation we need to establish? Why practice pranayama? What are the benefits? How does pranayama affect our state of mind or prepare us for meditation.What’s the link between prana and consciousness?Tips, tricks, guidelines for beginners? Or reminders for regular practitioners?For students that are new to pranayama, where’s a good place to start?For newer teachers that would like to start including some pranayama in their classes, can you give some ideas of how to build a breath pattern into a whole class, or use pranayama as a theme for the practice?Is it realistic to include pranayama in 1h class?Why is pranayama not a very popular practice?Do you think people need to understand the koshas to practice pranayama?SUBSCRIBE, RATE & REVIEW!GIVEAWAY WINNER.

triyoga talks episode 4: Richard Rosen on authenticity, yoga’s evolution + the purpose of asana

triyoga talks

Subscribe: iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher Richard Rosen has been a student of yoga for nearly 40 years. He trained at the Iyengar Yoga Institute in the 1980s and, in 1987, co-founded the Piedmont Yoga Studio with Rodney Yee. He has also written four authoritative books on breath, pranayama and the traditional practices of yoga. In the latest podcast in our triyoga talks series, he talks with Genny Wilkinson Priest about yoga in the modern world, how traditional practices have evolved over the centuries, and whether there is really any such thing as authentic yoga. When asked whether yoga’s popularity opens it up to distortion, he says, “Westerners are often accused by traditionalists of distorting yoga. But the fact is that what we received was already a distorted version of the practice to begin with; although we were told differently and we didn’t really know what we were getting. “And the question is, why did this happen? The Indian teachers who reinvented yoga, they found themselves between a rock and a hard place. Regarding the practice, the one thing that they valued most was age and tradition. The older something was, they believed the more authority it had. So they distrusted innovation and newness. The problem was then that what they had in their hands was an entirely new form of yoga, which by their own standards lacked authority.” On the purpose of asana and whether it matters why we practice, he adds, “I think it matters more how you practise yoga than why. You can probably practise yoga for self-aggrandisement or to profit off it in some way. Even practising for the wrong reasons, we might reserve judgment to see if the practice changes the student’s purpose. Despite all its shortcomings, modern yoga can have a really transformative effect, even if you’re not really expecting it. In yoga, it is really important how you practise, with attention and with dedication.” Richard will be teaching an online workshop with Annie Carpenter entitled ‘the evolving practice’ on 8th September 2020.

Richard Rosen on Patanjali in Modern Yoga Practice

Yogaland Podcast

Richard Rosen is a yoga scholar and teacher who has authored five yoga books that are well worth reading. I talked to him about his most recent, "Yoga FAQ, Almost Everything You Need to Know about Yoga -- from Asanas to Yamas." This book is rich with tons of historical info and yet, Richard is refreshingly honest about how traditions change and evolve. We focus mostly on his Patanjali's Yoga Sutra -- who was Patanjali? Who was Vyasa? And why is this text a seminal part of modern Western yoga? Shownotes: yogalandpodcast.com/episode39/ See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
