10-noon, $30, check or cash

Fountain Square 216, Bloomington

Would you like to:
Help your heart beat more steadily?
Relax even when you feel anxious?
Digest your food better?
Fall asleep easier.

You may have breathing habits that engage the fight/flight/possum response even when you want to relax.
If you:
  • gasp for air even when you’re not running
  • breathe shallowly even when you’re not afraid
  • feel as if you haven’t taken a breath in a long time
  • sigh deeply and then hold your breath for no good reason
  • have panic attacks and want to get a grip
 This workshop is for you.
In a power-packed two hours, we explore frequency, mechanics and volume of an easy, deep, effective, baseline breath.  You may be working way too hard for every breath.
If you practice 10-minutes a day for a week and it doesn’t help you, you get your money back!

The plants die and disappear from view, shutting me out.  The body of the earth closes the doors, turns out the light, hops into bed and pulls up the covers. Continue reading »
