Learn how to strengthen your lungs and breathe easier through trying times and every day!
In our modern world, many of us are wondering how to protect ourselves against illness. Experts are now proposing screenings for respiratory muscle impairment for individuals at higher risk from a viral infection. They suggest using breathing exercises for respiratory support before, during, and after a respiratory infection. Logically, if breathing muscles are weak, the intensity of any respiratory condition will increase.
Certain breathing exercises known as inspiratory muscle training (IMT) help strengthen the diaphragm, increase respiratory muscle strength, increase uniform diaphragmatic thickness and function, and help open the airways—making breathing easier.
Yoga & Ayurveda recommend hundreds of different pranayama breathing exercises, each with their own subtle yet profound benefits. This workshop will focus on 3 pranayama techniques to mimic respiratory muscle training.
The workshop will be part lecture, part experiential and will include time for participant Q&A. It will be recorded and the replay will be made available for those who are unable to attend live.
