Pranayama Instruction

Postby Peacedog on Mon Apr 08, 2019 12:09 pm

Hi all,

I am looking for a qualified instructor to learn a complete system of pranayama from.

Location unimportant. Distance learning or in-person is fine.

Books, DVD or video materials explaining how it all fits together are good as well.

Peacedog by far the best book that I have come across on the topic, in 20+ years of reading about it and studying under quite a few teachers, is "Pranayama: the Breath of Yoga" by a guy called Gregor Maehle. He's Russian, but lives in Australia, I haven't met him in person yet but certainly plan to, but the book is truly outstanding. He's studied under all of the major teachers and lineages of modern yoga, including my teacher A.G. Mohan and all of the other direct students of Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, and he's done extensive study of the original Sanskrit texts. He has a good understanding of both the modern physiological and traditional yogic systems and effects of all of the different aspects of pranayama. Get the book and you'll see what I mean, Gregor teaches intensives in Australia and around the world every year.
