Price: $20.00 

Breath, Diaphragm Breathing, and Digestion

Breathing helps the body to rest and digest. Breathing deeply and mindfully takes us out of the flight-fright-fight response that causes blood to move from the gut to other larger muscles in body.  Being in a constant flight-fright-fight response interferes with digestion and weakens the immune system and can increase inflammation. 

In this class, we will practice pranic breathing techniques to encourage slow, mindful breathing to help the body relax so the nervous system feels calm.  We will also connect to the body’s gut-brain axis, by practicing diaphragm breathing and abdominal breathing, also called belly breathing, to bring more concentrated blood into the belly and gut area of the body to improve digestion. 

Benefits include:

  • Relax and calm your nervous system to improve digestion
  • Relieve upper abdominal pain, discomfort, and distention
  • Relieve belching,  flatulence, and the feeling of being full
  • Rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit
  • Recharge your energy system
  • Recover from physical and mental fatigue
  • Relieve exhaustion and breathlessness

Healing Injury? For those who have a history of injury or trauma and notice that the effects of the minor/major injuries are beginning to interfere with your everyday lives, please note that all of the yoga classes are naturally healing.

Each yoga class is designed to help release stored pain, anxiety, stress, or tension you may be experiencing so that vital, healing energy – prana – can move freely through the entire body. When vital energy is flowing freely (not obstructed), you experience positive emotions, revitalized energy, mental clarity, lightness, pain relief, and an overall sense of well-being.
