As a long time yoga and somatic movement therapist, I studied many breathing techniques. Most of these dictated rules about breathing. So, for years, I imposed breathing exercises on my body.
Breathing can be experienced in such a way that it initiates from very subtle parts of your body. By giving my body the freedom to find its own natural breath, I feel freedom and ease.
Of course, there still are realities of how to execute healthy breathing. My hope is that the videos below combine gentleness, awareness, and good breathing mechanics, so your breath is enhanced without strain.
I am soon launching a breathing course that you can do from the comfort of your own home! If you are interested don't forget to subscribe for updates.
If you need some personal coaching to really master the nuances of breathing or explore these more subtle realms I am available for both in-person and zoom lessons.
