If you fear inflammatory diseases (cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc.), and want another tool to help your healthy body, try this.

If you have high blood pressure and would like a tool to help situations that spark your stress, try this.

If respiration problems run in your family and you want to know respiration mechanics that help to avoid those problems, try this.

When I started using breathing practices, I couldn’t take a full deep breath for the life of me. I knew that something wasn’t working very well even though I didn’t have asthma or heart problems. I simply had an old habit of breathing shallowly. Now, in addition to helping my health, I use my breathing pattern as feedback for my stress response and it provides immense power to deal more effectively with events that get me off kilter. I feel grateful to share what I’ve learned and feel confident that you will benefit too.

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! 
Cynthia Bretheim, MS, LMT, NBCMT, lived and worked at the Himalayan International Institute of Yoga Science and Philosophy for four years.

Try this: The next time you walk (even from the car to the office), focus on your breath.  Match the number of steps for your inhalation with the number of steps for your exhalation.  For example; Inhale with steps R1, L2, R3, L4, R5, L6.  Exhale with steps R1, L2, R3, L4, R5, L6.  That’ll keep thoughts from stressing you; not to mention regulating your heart rate and your blood pressure.  Continue reading »
