Breath is Life
What is Breathwork?
The condition of our breath mirrors the state of our mind. When we are stressed, our breath becomes short and unsteady, and we may even hold our breath. When our breath flows smoothly and calmly, our mental fatigue, tunnel vision and the adrenaline starts to calm down.
Education on how the nervous system works and how breathing plays an important role in stress management. Dysfunctional breathing is likely making one weaker and less resilient to stress.
A personalized assessment of breathing patterns with instruction on how to correct breathing dysfunction. Nearly everyone has some level of breathing dysfunction, so this is a valuable opportunity to correct these issues.
Expert guidance in the various techniques that one can employ to improve resilience to stress, improve focus, and improve mental and physical health.
Optional additional group experiences to apply what is learned in carefully procured “stress simulations”, depending on the goals and needs of the group.

Pranayama is an ancient breath technique that originates from yogic practices in India. It involves controlling your breath in different styles and lengths. It has more recently gained popularity in the western world because of the many health benefits that come from a pranayama practice.
