Aug 29: Breathe Yourself Calm

Are you aware that the way you breathe affects your emotions? Short, shallow breaths can make you feel more anxious, while long slow abdominal breaths can help you feel more calm. Learn how to use your breath to shift from scattered to centered. From frazzled to focused. From stressed to serene.
Join me in this 2 hour experiential workshop to ...
-explore your habitual breathing patterns
-learn techniques for slowing and controlling the breath and the mind
-learn specific yoga postures for opening up the torso for more effortless breath
-3 essential oils to help reduce stress and support your breath
You will leave this workshop feeling super relaxed and take home a yoga and breathing practice you can incorporate into your day.
We will serve lights snacks form the NFP Cafe.
