The breath holds the body and mind together and has a major impact on both. Learn how the body actually breathes and how breathing is connected to the nervous system, mind, and emotions.
During this one-hour digital workshop, you will learn about the organs and mechanics of respiration, pathways that govern breathing, the role of breath in the Yoga Sutra and Bhagavad Gita, and much more.
"The way you present your knowledge is priceless! It has been a huge part of my learning and sharing with other people who are keen to work on and with their breath to improve their health, therefore their life! Thank you so much!"
