Breathing Techniques for Health

Breathing techniques are recognized by modern day physicians as an effective stress management tool to combat muscle tension, anxiety, depression and low energy. The breath is a powerful tool that directly connects to the nervous system to bring regulation and balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. Traditional Pranayama yoga techniques, as well as simplified breathing patterns will be taught to support well-being. By bringing the stress response into check and oxygenating the brain and all the tissues of the body, breathing techniques are an easy and effective tool to support healing in the mind and body.
