This training will explore how to relax and prepare the body to receive the Breath. Specifically, the course will be divided into themes and you will be taught the eight breaths for the practical self-management of:
- stress, anxiety & fear
- panic attack & emergencies
- hypertension & hypotension, high & low blood pressure
- breathlessness, asthma, COPD, Long Covid & allergies
- chronic fatigue
- chronic pain
- depressive moods
- sleeplessness & insomnia
We will also look at how allowing optimum breathing patterns can enhance cognitive function, physical energy and a balanced awareness. Practices will be supported by current research, neuro-anatomy and physiology so that attendees can understand the crucial connection between breath-body-brain integration. Additionally, we will explore breath and interpersonal relationships and how breathing affects feelings and behaviour (and thus the way we think about ourselves and relate to others, communicate and behave).
Note that the content of this course is very different to Pranayama.
