We tend to take it for granted, but the way we breathe influences our entire life experience. So if we want something to change, the breath is the place to start. On Freeing the Breath, Leslie Kaminoff shares the wisdom of 30 years of teaching in order to liberate us from dysfunctional breathing patterns and open us to new levels of health and well-being. This information-packed two-CD program investigates:
* Why there’s no single “right way” to breathe—the importance of integrated breathing within the context of our activities
* The anatomy of the breathing body—from diaphragm function, to the breath as “shape-change,” to accessory musculature, and more
* How the breath affects the organs
* “Seesaw Breath,” “3-D Breath,” and other guided exercises
By honoring the breath as our ultimate teacher, explains Kaminoff, we can restore physiological wellness, increase mental clarity, and foster emotional balance. This is the exciting opportunity we explore through Freeing the Breath.
