Breath Is Movement
Often overlooked, our breathing mechanics play a significant role in respiration and have downstream effects on our overall health. By building awareness of the movement of our breath and layering on skill by engaging proper breathing mechanics, we can have a tremendous impact on our lives.
And for this reason, we developed this Breath Is Movement video course to empower you to understand the simplicity of breathing movement through an hour of awareness-based learning and practices to become actionable in your life.
Remember, you’re alive. You’re moving. And sensation matters. So getting a feel for breath can be a gateway to opening up many new doors for your health and well-being.
What you can expect from this course
- A simple breakdown of breathing movement
- Actionable tools and guided practices
- Customization to meet you where you are to integrate these principles, techniques, and perspectives into your lifestyle
Why does it matter?
We take anywhere from 600 million to 1 billion breaths in our lives, most of which are reflexive and unconscious. And when we get anxious about the future or depressed about the past, we miss the magic of what is happening right in front of us – breathing! It is happening now. Breathing can be an anchor to help us to get centered and move gracefully through life with more ease, peace, and presence.
