Didgeridoo Pranayama is a breathing workshop for everyone. It is an experiential workshop working with the breath to the backbone of the resonance of the didgeridoo. It is not a learn to play didgeridoo workshop.
Participants learn to breath in the same pattern of inhalations and exhalations as specific didgeridoo rhythms. Once the breathing pattern is established for the group, Si joins with exactly the same pattern of breath on the didgeridoo. The group then moves together, lead by the empowering effects of the breath, the momentum of the group and the power of the drone tone.
This practice combines three meditative processes. Meditation on the primeval vibration or Aum. The consciousness altering effects of repetitive breathing patterns, and the meditation of music played with intent and purpose. As we breath together we transcend our individual boundaries and work with group consciousness.
Si has developed a personal practice utilising these patterns of breath and has been single pointedly committed to this path for more than 20 years. Si has integrated elements from many cultures of the world as he has travelled, to create a wholistic approach that is fundamentally integrated, grounded and that cultivates vital energy.
Si explored re-birthing and primal therapy as a teenager and then went on to have a strong interest in Indian culture and spirituality. From this strong interest in things of the psyche, he went on to study Medicine at university with the ambition to become a psychiatrist. However, a potent experience in India in between 2nd and 3rd year Medicine convinced him that he was a didgeridoo player and that this instrument held within itself all of the tools he needed for self development physically, emotionally and spiritually. He renounced the path that was given to him and chose to follow his heart and pursue his passion.

This is a unique concept, a world first vision. The consciousness journeying aspect of actually playing didgeridoo is open to everyone.
Si teaches the same patterns of inhalations and exhalations that he uses
