Pranayama is a class designed to teach different breathing techniques and prepare the practitioner for a successful meditation practice. Breath is the connection between the body and the mind. If one learns control over breath, mind and body can be controlled.
"The process of breathing is closely related to the state of consciousness, and its characteristics determine the quality of the psychic-energy structure of a man. It can be said that the rhythms of the breath and the consciousness are similar. Therefore, in order to achieve the principal goal of Yoga, which is the stabilization of consciousness, it is absolutely necessary to completely master the breath." --Andrey Lappa

About the instructor
Hi! My name is Sheri Baemmert and I have been teaching in the wellness environment since 1990 and truly believe I have the best job in the world. People who train with me know me as an intense “play your edge” teacher, but also as a caring one. My passion for seeing others achieve their goals allows me to teach from the heart. I believe it is important to work your body, mind, and breath as a whole. And you will “Feel the Sunshine” in every session.
I have been studying fascia intently for a few years and find it fascinating how it relates so well to the principles and fundaments of yoga and Pilates. I am a certified Pilates apparatus and mat teacher thought the PhysicalMind Institute and have been teaching group and private Pilates sessions for over 15 years.
After studying and teaching yoga since 1995, I finally found my Guru, Andrey Lappa, the creator of Universal Yoga. After meeting Andrey in 2011, my yoga practice and teaching style has been forever changed. I am now “at home” with Universal Yoga. This complete system of yoga includes all aspects of authentic yoga including: asana, vinyasa, pranayama, bandhas, mudras, mantra, yantra, energy work, studying spiritual texts and so much more. I have completed over 700 hours of training with Andrey and am now co-teaching with him.
