“Our body mind container must be strong and stable.

Then, we can fill it with energy from our practice and carry that energy everywhere we go as a heightened state of aliveness.”


Pranayama: Exploring the Fuel for Asana & Meditation

Upcoming Programs


The term Pranayama describes many yogic breathing and body practices. During our weekend together, we will explore 18 pranayama techniques and supporting philosophy to discover how the effects of pranayama might align with your current asana and meditation practice.

Beyond Dirgha and Ujayii, many yoga practitioners and teachers today have not had an opportunity to learn about nor practice Pranayama, Patanjali’s 4th limb. From different cultures and times, we find many ancient teachings, including yoga, describing a necessary trio for cultivating enlightenment experiences: breath, awareness/concentration, and time containing repetitive practice.

This program is open to anyone wanting to explore a deep dive into yoga philosophy and practice. Please consider our weekend to be a retreat, an opportunity for you to let go of daily routine and immerse yourself into the power of the universe, contained in your own body.

Please note that we will be exploring techniques that can create both subtle and strong experiences for any practitioner. Beginners are always welcome, AND at least 6-12 months of yoga and meditation practice are recommended. If you’re not sure if this is the right program for you at this point in your life, please reach out to William to explore the conversation.

To Bring: $15 material fees {Material Fees – $15 – payable to William on the day} , Yoga Mat, a Journal for recording any reflections and notes, any personal props your require. A snack for Saturday/Sunday during our break.

Yoga with William Hufschmidt

Statement of Faith

If we are somehow endowed with participation of some kind of divinity, then we are indeed special, and should treat each other with the respect and dignity this demands.

If, on the other hand, we are the accidental outcome of blind natural processes in a cosmos that is indifferent to us being here at all, then we are indeed special, and should treat each other with a tenderness and respect befitting such serendipitous surprises.
