Breathe Consciously. Act in Harmony.
Right now ... become aware of your tongue.
Is it pressed to the roof of your mouth or against your teeth?
If you answered yes, you have a pattern of breathing that is detrimental to your health and happiness.
Breath is more than taking in and expelling air.
Trying to take a “deep” breath by sucking up in the chest (the shoulders lift towards the ears and the belly is imobile), only creates more anxiety and stress in your body.
Are you a Yoga Teacher or Yoga Student ?
Practicing breathing exercises with a pattern of chest breathing in place can actually cause long term damage to your health and well being. Most Yoga teachers have not been taught to breathe properly because their teachers don't breathe properly. This course will teach you how to help yourself and your students have a profound inner experience during Hatha Yoga Practice.
Are You a Massage Therapist or Energy Worker?
Teach your Clients to breath for relaxation and health. Protect yourself from fatigue and taking on 'negative' energy by being grounded and centred in your body with a breath that fully permeates it.
