Sivananda Yoga Sadhana Intensive: A Pranayama Retreat

Two weeks of intensive pranayamas ( yogic breathing exercises aimed to control the prana or vital force energy, or Chi like the Chinese call it ) at the Sivananda Ashram in Madurai. It was tough, it was hard and it was intense, just the way I like it. And it included all the good stuff that all yogis love: all sorts of pranayamas including mudras and bandhas. It was an awesome experience and I recommend it to anybody who is really serious about yoga.
