A chance to have your personal practice checked, to bring your questions, and to receive expert guidance in a small group environment. Re -visit the fundamentals efficiently and effectively, and useful direction on what when and how to include in your teaching.

Over the last 20 years Maxine has practiced and been taught personally under the guidance of her teacher Sri O.P Tiwari, probably the most respected pranayama master in India today. She has has also completed advanced pranayama trainings at the Kaivalyadhama Institute over which he presides.
Pranayama has been an integral part of MaxineYoga classes for over a decade.
Up until now she has taught only privately one to one. Now you have the opportunity to learn more and to delve deeper into your own practice in the focussed and relaxed environment of Maxine's small group workshops. Limited in number to permit personal attention.
Who is this for?
Whether new to pranayama, or seeking to develop your practice, this is a chance to take your knowledge and understanding to a higher level. Mastery of technique is fundamental in this but also is a clear understanding of the theory and context for practice for visiting afresh for yourself precisely how why what and when. Scientific research and evidence is also growing, It is a very exciting time.
Rarely is there time for this focus and depth in a regular yoga class. Though there is much information in books and on the internet, the value of the personal step by step guidance by a teacher is crucial. The best route to learning is to first develop our own understanding of ourselves and through this experience we grow. This is the value of Maxine's classes and workshops.
