The Healing Power of Proper Breathing
Breathing is a constant in our lives from the moment we are born. It is also a subtle mirror reflecting various physical and mental imbalances.
Breathing properly can allow us to live longer and healthier lives. Breathing poorly, by contrast, can exacerbate and even cause a laundry list of chronic diseases. By correcting and consciously working with our breath, we can calm our minds at will and improve our overall wellness.
In this two-session online class, we will focus on gaining a deeper understanding of our breath and its physiology, drawing both from modern science and the ancient system of yoga. We will discuss the mechanics of proper breathing through the conscious relaxation of the diaphragm. We will also explore some of the common unhealthy breathing habits that many tend to develop and practice some effective breathing techniques and exercises to restore a state of balance.
