Build a life­long pranayama prac­tice with teacher Rod­ney Yee, co-founder of Yoga Shanti in New York City.

ROD­NEY YEE WOULD LIKE YOU TO STOP, sit or lie down, lis­ten, and feel. The iconic yoga teacher— who pi­o­neered ac­ces­si­ble asana prac­tices through the cre­ation of in­struc­tional DVDs—has be­come an ar­dent ad­vo­cate of restora­tive yoga, body-scan med­i­ta­tion, and pranayama. To Yee, pranayama refers to tech­niques that help you re­lax and re­turn to your nat­u­ral, easy way of breath­ing. In the fol­low­ing pages, learn more about his ap­proach, then prac­tice an ex­clu­sive restora­tive se­quence de­signed to help you re­lax, open up your di­aphragm, and pre­pare to wel­come prana— your es­sen­tial life force. This calm­ing se­quence of­fers a taste of Yee’s new Yoga Jour­nal Master Class work­shop on be­gin­ning a pranayama prac­tice, launch­ing next month.
