Session 1: Why Breathing Matters

Our breath and breathing pattern directly impacts our health and healing. We’ll compare an ideal breathing pattern to a dysfunctional breathing pattern, and explore the symptoms you might notice with altered breathing. We’ll guide you through a mindful practice to develop awareness of how you are breathing. During each of the three sessions we will take measurements, such as O2 saturation and respiratory rate, to track physical changes and your progress over 3 weeks.

Session 2: Breathing Practice & Tools

This practical session focuses on solutions to common breathing problems. We’ll reflect on what participants noticed from the first session and move into techniques to help address breathing problems. We’ll explore practical breathing exercises to help your body shift into a more optimal breathing pattern.

Session 3: Integration

Using what you learned in the first two sessions, we’ll more deeply explore how your breath impacts your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. We want participants to leave with greater awareness of how to use their breath to promote whole-body health and healing.
