One of the ways we can take responsibility in preventing chronic health issues such as HBP and stress related circulatory issues is THE BREATH. One way of stimulating our metabolic system and increasing our longevity is to IMPROVE HOW WE BREATHE. People find it hard to believe that something as simple as correcting the breath and being mindful of how we breathe can solve many of our stress/anxiety related symptoms and improve overall health. The Breath is key in regulating our parasympathetic nervous system and is a valuable tool in establishing mindfulness and connecting us to the present. This workshop is a Yoga Therapy approach using modern research alongside ancient yogic pranayama techniques to regulate and harness the power of the breath. Attendees will participate in breathing practices for specific issues, learn techniques to strengthen the muscles of respiration and enjoy a guided meditation for deep relaxation.

“What if we focused on who we are and where we are going from the inside out? What if we made a commitment to refrain from causing pain to any living being, especially ourselves? A non-violent commitment that would include every action, word or thought that contained anger, greed or attachment. What if we made a decision to come from a place of love in all situations — with others and ourselves? We could let go of fearfulness, greed, and feelings of lack. We would recognize that there is enough to go around if we share, if we reach out with open hearts. We would know that our world is full of abundance and at last we would truly begin to live in peace. Let your yoga practice come from the inside out.” –Jan Thrasher.
