We can use our breath to calm ourselves, for increased energy, to support exercise, to reduce anxiety, and to aid in recovery and healing. Your breath is the most readily available tool that you possess and our most powerful way to connect to yourself on all levels. It is simultaneously one of the most misunderstood and confusing natural body functions. When we breathe well, we feel good.

The physical body has one sole purpose … movement. When we move our body well, it directly impacts our internal systems such as the movement of blood, lymphatic fluid, hormones, nutrients, oxygen and cellular energy. Movement also helps to build and preserve bone mass, burn calories, and impact our “get up and go” energy … it can sharpen memory, have a meditative impact, promote focus, be anti-aging, be immune-boosting, and not only improve mood and feelings of well-being, but also help combat anxiety and depression, and improve sleep quality.

The “resting” experience will ultimately take you to a place of a greater, fuller understanding of who you are. It will teach you how to trigger the mind’s relaxation response, which shifts us out of a sympathetic state, and into a parasympathetic state, initiating healing and restoration.
