It is my honor to share with you a multitude of breathing practices, some of which date back to Patanjali, known as the Father of Yoga! These are the techniques that the Yogis from the Himalayas have used to bring their body, mind, and electromagnetic field back to life after sitting in Samadhi (a state of deep meditation) for an extended period.

In this two-hour workshop students will practice a series of breathing techniques to energize and awaken the body, mind, and energy body. Experience vitality and calm like you may have never before! Most of us tend to use a very small percentage of our lung capacity, breathing very shallowly for much of our life. This workshop will help you expand your breath capacity and perhaps even your understanding of the power of your breath.

This two-hour experiential class will begin to counteract the many stressors of our modern lives. You will learn the benefits associated with each different breathing practice. Some of the benefits are:

  • stimulate the vagus nerve, which activates the parasympathetic nervous system (rest/heal state)

  • condition the cardiovascular system (heart, arteries, and lungs)

  • balance the hormones

  • clean the blood

  • clear and calm the mind

  • improve digestion

  • better elimination

  • balance the emotions

  • bolster the adrenal system

  • bring a beautiful and healthy glow to your face

  • reduce back, hip and neck pain

Students should bring a mat, water bottle, and layers to accommodate changes in body temperature.
