Where: Mohegan Sun
Anatomy of the Breath
When: Thursday, November 13 from 8 AM- 5 PM
Where: Mohegan Sun
We may be able to go without food for many days; but, we won’t survive without breath for more than minutes. Nothing is closer to us than the breath. Our experience of daily life shapes patterns of breathing that either support vibrant health or may exacerbate dis-ease. This is a highly experiential session to learn how to gain awareness of and enhance breathing patterns for ourselves and our patients.
Objectives – participants will be able to:
- Identify and gain practice in assessing specific patterns of breathing.
- Learn techniques for optimizing patterns of breathing.
- Select specific breathing exercises to be helpful tool for several of mental and physical health conditions.
- Understand the contraindications for these practices.
