Beatrice Appay profile

Pranayoga is a well balanced practice, to restore your health, boost your energy and self-confidence to make you radiate and thrive through life.

Do you feel overwhelmed by too much work, too much news, too many problems to address at the same time, too many pains and aches,  too much of everything? Does it prevent you from sleeping and make you feel even more anxious? Want to put your head under a pillow and wait for better times? OR are you ready to transform yourself and do what needs to be addressed to create a more balanced life, a life filled with strength, focus, and inner peace?

Pranayoga enhances your inner-strength and creates the mindset for you to access the best version of yourself.

Hatha Yoga and Pranayama,  the yogic breathing

Pranayoga combines Hatha Yoga and Pranayama, well balanced postures with yogic breathing exercises.  It stems from 2 main schools of yoga one in France and one in the US.

From Paris to the US

Pranayoga with Beatrice Appay

The Eva Ruchpaul Method

Pranayoga emerges directly from the Ruchpaul Method created by Eva Ruchpaul (Paris, France). in the early 70s. Eva Ruchpaul is a famous yogini and author who knows how to age well in her 90s. Full of dynamism, inner joy and intelligence, she has been a constant source of inspiration for me since I started (and never stopped)  practicing yoga more than 40 years ago. Renowned in Europe, the Eva Ruchpaul Method of yoga is extremely precise and well balanced. It integrates different forms of breathing techniques within and in between each asana and this method constitutes one of the essential foundations of Pranayoga. The Eva Ruchpaul Method is not taught yet in the US and I am very pleased to be one of its Ambassador. I am proud and honored to have received for so many years Eva Ruchpaul teaching and mentoring.

Uplifted Yoga

The second foundation of Pranayoga stems from Brett Larkin’s Uplifted Yoga . This school of yoga and its founder Brett Larkins stimulate creativity and freedom whilst nevertheless being embedded in a deep knowledge of different Yogic traditions. It has created a dynamic link between tradition and the contemporary ways yoga is practiced and taught in the US.
