Course Curriculum

Introduction of Jihva Bandha and Shambhavi Mudra.

How to switch to the 1:2 ratio and why

The importance of Granthi breakers Stage 1 and 2

Introducing Jalandhara Bandha

  • Importance of and rationale
  • Difference between the bandha and the position
  • Only once mastered proceed to kumbhaka, do not let vayu enter the head

Why kumbhaka?

  • Contraindications
  • Types: Internal vs external 2 :1 thus importance of Nauli
  • Purpose of kumbhaka

Integrate internal kumbhaka with Jalandhara Bandha

1 : 1 : 1 ratio

  • Always start with sama vrtti (even component length, exceptions)
  • How to split from 1 : 2 ratio
  • During Nadi Shodana one lunar/ one solar kumbhaka


Imagine how great it would be to have a switch that, when operated, would enable you to consciously choose between your right and left brain hemispheres, intuitive and analytical intelligence, sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, fight/flight reflex and rest/relaxation, and between the male and female, solar and lunar, aspects of your psyche. How great it would be if, when required, you could switch from being compassionate to doggedly determined. Or from charged with energy to completely relaxed within a few minutes. Or from extrovert (physically present, expressive and outgoing) to introvert (reflective and absorbing) within a short time. This switch does in fact exist and it is not at all hidden. It is the prominently protruding olfactory orifice right in the middle of your face: your nose.

Pranayama includes some of the most neglected but yet most powerful methods of yoga. Pranayama is the vital link that connects asana to meditation without which the combined benefit of both cannot be harvested. Learn how to use pranayama to harmonize the doshas (humors of the body) and thus attain a state of health and balance as well as how to still the mind, enabling spiritual insight.

Gregor and Monica are genuinely amazing people, I felt engaged and energised from the first minute to the last minute of this incredible experience. Even though they have a lot more Yoga experience than me I felt they treated me as an equal and taught from a place of love and authenticity throughout.
