LEARN TO BREATHE
You’ll get a very precise baseline with a functional breathing test (BIQ) that will let you know exactly how well you breathe and how it is affecting your body and mind. You’ll learn how to correct your breathing, strengthen your breathing muscles and learn a short “relax-fast” recovery breath (active meditation) to use daily. This is an intensive, dynamic process where you will feel relief immediately.
The breathing class has physical benefits. The breathing class is a lung workout. It exercises your diaphragm, intercostal muscles, and, if practiced regularly, can positively affect your lung capacity and velocity (the two factors considered when looking at “lung age”). Increased blood and oxygen flow to the brain and body have significant physical impact on your wellbeing, and a host of health benefits.
Active meditation has psychological benefits that are a great addition to any therapy. The increased oxygen flow and intense relaxation which automatically happens afterwards helps you “let go” of anger and sadness, letting you feel “unstuck” mentally. If you challenge yourself to “let go” (like you might with a chiropractor or massage therapist trying to go “deeper”) and ask yourself hard personal questions during the practice, you’ll be rewarded with clarity and strength.
