Harmonious Breathing Workshop: Breathe As You Are
1100 E Street
Harmonious Breathing has as its central purpose the rediscovery of the beauty and importance of breathing well in our everyday lives. Among the many health benefits, it serves to clear the mind, restore vigor to the body, and harmonize the emotions.
In this workshop we practice breath awareness through gentle movement and easy static postures. Then using safe, breath-specific exercises, we gain the experience of the pathways the breath can take. In so doing we enhance the fluidity and underlying harmony of the respiration. This is an embodied practice that takes place standing and also sitting in a chair. All skill levels are welcome.
