In this powerful 75 minute workshop, you will learn the foundations of breathwork, including the neuroscience and correct techniques for harnessing the power of your breath.
On its own, the act of respiration naturally energizes, cleanses, purifies, uplifts and reconnects the human organism to a state of maximum balance as well as higher states of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. breathing signals the parasympathetic nervous system to activate and thus induce relaxation throughout the body. When we pause to breathe deeply, our heart rate slows and our blood pressure decreases. All of this positive activity increases our well being. When our body relaxes as we breathe deeply, our sense of stress is diminished. We feel fewer negative emotions, and our mind becomes quieter, our thoughts stiller.
When we use the breath skillfully, we can support the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems, ensuring healthy physiological responses. Different breath practices can ignite different states—either elevating energy or relaxing the body. We can control our emotional states and activate the parasympathetic or sympathetic systems, depending on what we need and how we’re feeling. I also offer private sessions with students to help them develop a breath practice that is tailored to their specific needs.
