Breathing well helps you to live well. Yoga includes vast knowledge on using breath for physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Yoga also uses breath to balance and expand the subtle pranic energies that flow in your body. This retreat brings together yogic breathing practices with scientific knowledge on the effects of poor breathing patterns on body, mind and emotions.
Many chronic, unexplained, hard to treat health conditions can be caused by disordered breathing. For example: headaches, disturbed sleep, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety, depression, fatigue, allergies, hypertension, panic attacks, heart palpitations, muscular aches and pains, lower back pain, dizziness and poor concentration.
On this retreat you will explore your breathing pattern and:
Learn why the way you breathe matters
Learn active breathing techniques and yogic pranayamas using hatha yoga
Learn how to retrain your breathing pattern with simple step by step instructions
Practice nasal cleansing with neti
Learn breathing to reduce stress and allergies, and improve mood, sleep and general health.
