Relieve Stress & Anxiety Naturally

THURSDAY 9TH APRIL - 11am

If you struggle with stress that keeps you up at night, or anxiety that’s keeping you from being fully present with your friends, your family or your work, then I’d like to invite you to join my free breathing masterclass.

The coronavirus has affected all of our lives, it’s important that we arm ourselves with self-care tools to help us get through this difficult time. Left unchecked, all of this stress right can build up and can lead us to use negative self-soothing techniques like binge-watching television, drinking too much alcohol, over-eating sugary or processed foods. 

Yoga breathing offers you a healthy alternative. In just five minutes using science-based yoga breathing, you can really take back control over your nervous system and regain a sense of equilibrium in your life. 

THIS FREE MASTERCLASS WILL SHOW YOU HOW YOGABREATHING COULD HAVE A HUGE IMPACT ON YOUR LIFE. RESERVE YOUR SEAT, AND LET'S GET STARTED.

You'll learn:

✅ Basic principles of the practice 

✅ the Why behind the How

✅ Some foundation breathing exercises to take away and use immediately

 

AFTER THE WORKSHOP YOU'LL HAVE THE OPTION TO CONTINUE ON YOUR OWN WITH THE PRACTICES I TEACH YOU, WORK WITH ME 1-ON-1 FOR 4-WEEKS, OR JOIN ONE OF MY 4-PART GROUP WORKSHOPS.

Running time: approx 60 mins​

Amazing Facts About Breathing

You can go for weeks without food, days without water, but only a few minutes without breathing. Breathing has such an immediate impact on your mind and body that even the act of inhaling vs. exhaling affects your nervous system differently. It’s common to train in diet, exercise and even hydration, but almost no one trains their breath. This is a huge missed opportunity for health-seekers.

 

Did you know…

  • Breathing can change your blood PH (acid/alkaline) in minutes. No food, exercise or medication acts as quickly.

  • You can often determine your dominant nervous system state simply by placing your finger underneath your nostrils and exhaling.

  • Reduced rate breathing can stimulate a rest and digest, parasympathetic nervous system state to help with sleep, stress, and anxiety.

  • Rapid, pulsed breathing stimulates a sympathetic nervous system response to increase energy, prepare for exercise, or boost the body’s natural defenses.

  • Diaphragmatic breathing massages the Vagus Nerve and reduces heart rate, lowers blood pressure, and reduces stress.2

  • Severe respiratory conditions like asthma can be successfully managed by increasing CO2 levels in the blood.3

  • Breathing can help reduce the fear of public speaking, improve digestion, reduce insomnia, lower stress, anxiety, and overwhelm.

Breathing vs. Meditation?

In traditional yoga, breathing has always been taught as a stepping-stone to meditation, and scientifically, the benefits are identical. Just like with meditation, you relieve stress, reduce your heart and respiratory rate, lengthen your telomeres, and potentially extend life.

Breathing is fun and easy to practice. The counting gives you a mental focus, and the practices are short and potent. Instead of dodging your daily breathing, you'll look forward to it.

With breathing practice, it puts you into a meditative state automatically. Think of breathing as an active form of meditation with all the same benefits.

Do I need to be a Yogi to do YogaBreathing? 

Definitely not! Anyone can do this, whether you've set foot on a yoga mat or not. 

Yoga Breathing draws upon ancient yogic breathing techniques, fusing them together with modern-day science, to give you fast, effective, tangible results from the outset.  No prior experience is necessary.
