The yogis said the breath should be as refined as a thin thread of cotton and barely perceptible as it exits the nose.
Subtle, that’s how the original texts describe pranayama.
Current studies on respiration demonstrate that efficient diaphragmatic breathing increases core stability, greater stress resilience, vitality and health. The challenge is in learning to breathe LESS NOT MORE!
In this webinar you’ll learn:
> The basic parameters of functional breathing
> Commonly accepted notions regarding the breath that are not scientifically validated
> Ways to identify breath pattern disorders in yourself or your students
> Methods to transform breath practices in your classes to shift in the direction of greater health and function.
Robin Rothenberg has been teaching therapeutically adapted yoga for nearly 30 years. She is the founding director of Essential Yoga Therapy, an IAYT-Accredited Yoga Therapy Training Program outside Seattle, Washington. In 2016 Robin trained in the Buteyko Breathing Method after she used the practice to eradicate her COPD symptoms by learning to minimize her breath and extend her capacity for breath suspension. This drew her to research the original teachings on pranayama whereby she found Vedic Science and Western Science agreed that breathing less promotes health. She is currently writing a book, Transformative Pranayama, which weaves together the knowledge she has gleaned from the past two years of intense practice and deep study on breathing, as a guide to yoga teachers, therapists and serious practitioners.
