Covid recovery, pranayama for anxiety, what are marma points & yoga therapy sequencing

Welcome to episode 15 of The Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy and meditation podcast.

This episode has been taken from a live Q&A session with Brandt and his yoga therapy students.

In this Q&A Brandt covers a range of topics including practices for someone recovering from COVID, the difference between the energies in the left and right nostrils in alternate nostril breathing and breathing exercises that people can do at work when dealing with stress.

This Q&A also includes a discussion on marma points from Ayurveda and how they relate to acupressure points found in Chinese medicine as well as the length  & complexity of yoga therapy sequences vs regular yoga class sequences and Brandt’s take on working towards a ‘peak pose’ during a yoga class.
