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.

Girl Smiling by Hortongrou

One day in a Neural Moves class, we were doing tongue circles (around the outside and inside of our teeth), and Mira said she could feel the movement in her ears.  I realized that exercising the tongue with these unusual movements was moving the ear’s eustacian tube, which drains in the back of the throat.

It is so important to remember that our body’s movements affect adjacent parts. With one shout, we move the neck, shoulders, tongue, throat, vocal chords, diaphragm, ribs, cheeks, and chin differently than when we talk.  That shout moves lymph, glands, and the fluid-filled ventricles in our brains in an unusual way.  Yet we say the same words at the same volume and tone most of the time, as if it doesn’t make a difference for our bodies.
