The Breath Class
This class is for you if you…..
want to boost your immune system,
have wanted to meditate but can’t seem to make that happen,
want to improve focus and concentration,
want to reduce anxiety or stress,
want to wake up refreshed and well-rested,
want to strengthen your respiratory capacity,
want to reduce chronic pain,
want to feel more balanced and grounded in your life, or
want to improve your overall well-being.
Breathing correctly is fundamental to flourishing in your life, but few of us have ever been taught how to breathe or why breathing matters. As James Nestor explains in his new book, Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art:
“No matter what you eat, how much you exercise, how skinny or young or wise you are, none of it matters if you’re not breathing properly.”
In this class, we will examine the science behind proper breathing and learn how we can transform our bodies and minds by changing how we breathe. You are encouraged to read James Nestor’s book as a companion to our discussion and practices, but you need not do so.
