BALANCING THE BREATH
Saturday, January 27, 2 to 4 p.m.
Breathing is a process we carry out essentially unconsciously, some 25,000 times a day. This biological function enables us to do nothing less than live, by supplying each of our cells with one of the fuels needed to produce energy: oxygen. But we rarely pay attention to it. Breathing is a movement that involves engaging specific muscles in a specific sequence. As with any movement, we can benefit from becoming aware of the muscles involved, learning how to mobilize them, stretch them and make them work in harmony. This work is also the gateway to modulation of the nervous system. This opens up a whole range of possibilities for working on relaxation, stress management and sleep quality. This workshop is accessible to all fitness levels. Pregnancy, however, is contraindicated.
