Intentional Yoga Breathing is a highly effective tool for both the prevention of illness as well as therapy for managing and/or reversing existing chronic illness. This training is specifically designed for professionals and practitioners who want to learn the art & science of yoga breathing as a self-care, patient care and patient education practice in prevention, lifestyle medicine, behavior change and supplement to conventional care.
Yoga Breathing (or Pranayama) is the science of learning to control the breath for various physiologic, biochemical, biomechanical and psychological outcomes overlooked in current health, fitness and wellbeing programs. As the research affirms, the therapeutic benefits of Yoga Breathing (or Pranayama) reveal itself through the positive effects on our Central/Autonomic/Enteric Nervous Systems, Immune, Digestive, Cardiovascular, Brain & Neuroendocrine systems. Through evidence-based concepts & research, our training seeks to foster collaboration among healthcare professionals in mind/body medicine by implementing "breath as medicine" to reduce stress, build resilience and improve patient health outcomes.
“If I had to limit my advice on healthier living to just one tip, it would be simply to learn how to breathe correctly.” ~Dr. Andrew Weil
