We have all been breathing our whole life. Learning to control breathing, understanding the nuances of breathing physiology and blood gases and how that can change our mind-state are not common knowledge. How does stress impact breathing and how can breathing impact stress? We will utilize simple, potent, and relaxing breathing exercises to enjoy and understand our body and stress.
You will then have the opportunity to bring intense states of experience into the realm of calm and mindful attention. Alternating between a high heat sauna and cold ice baths, with a coach to facilitate this experience, gives the participant an experience of their fullness, strengths and abilities. Be prepared to be enlivened, enlightened and deeply relaxed at the same time.
