Breath of Life Class
Fridays 9:00 AM PST [OPEN].
Everything we are and experience is woven together with breath. The dynamic nature of breath profoundly affects how we feel at any given moment and changes with each activity, thought, and emotion. It intricately connects us to our own body and mind, and affects how we relate to one another.
Defined as spirit in ancient Greek, breathwork is an avenue to explore rhythms of our body and soul. Subtle shifts in breathing patterns can center, energize, or invite deep calm. Regular breathing practices can increase awareness, mental focus, emotional agility, physical well-being, and personal resilience.
