Prana translates to “life force” in Sanskrit. In yoga, prana also refers to the vital life force that is empowered and enlivened during yoga practice. This energy heals and gives vitality to the body, mind, and spirit of practitioners. Our Hatha yoga training course video will introduce you to the principles and methods of the Hatha style. This practice focuses on movement and breath, and will help you create strong free-flowing prana.

Life Force

Be a Builder

The practice focuses on two important aspects of Hatha yoga; building the container and building the center.

An honor to learn from Mark Review by San Francisco Yogini
Thank you so much pranayama for this workshop. I learned so much from this class, and have incorporated this teaching into my morning practice.

Part lecture, part practice, Mark's teaching on uddiyanda banda and the breath were eye opening.

I sat with a notebook and took notes, then went through the practice. Please continue to offer classes with Mark.

Extremely valuable! Review by Steven
Yesterday I bought Mark Horner's video and I was thoroughly pleased. The quality of his instruction is top notch and I will continue to watch the video many times. I haven't heard very many better explanations of Uddiyana bandha (certainly Edward Clark does a fine job as well), the movements were really good and he is a very good speaker. Mark's skill of speech, depth of knowledge and evident mastery of external and internal movements guides the mind inside as movement, breath and awareness resolve into a whole. This will reinforce any practice one currently works with. Extremely valuable information for intermediate and advanced practitioners of any style. (Posted on 12/2/2009)
