Full Description

Deep breathing signals the parasympathetic nervous system to activate and thus induce relaxation throughout the body. When we pause to breathe deeply, our heart rate slows and our blood pressure decreases. All of this positive activity increases our wellbeing. When our body relaxes as we breathe deeply, our sense of stress is diminished. We feel fewer negative emotions, and our mind becomes quieter, our thoughts stiller.

In this one hour workshop you will learn a useful breathing techniques that you can use at home that promote relaxation, and can help manage a range of symptoms, including:
• Stress
• Anxiety
• Depression
• Chronic pain
• High Blood Pressure
• Insomnia
