Full Bio & Programs
Based on extensive research, this workshop with medical doctors Richard P. Brown and Patricia Gerbarg combines a variety of effective breathing techniques to relieve stress and improve mood, mental focus, and heart and lung function. These benefits have been enjoyed by health-care practitioners, yoga teachers, military veterans, individuals with anxiety, depression, PTSD, ADD, cancer, Lyme disease, lung problems, toxic exposures, and victims of terrorism, war, and natural disasters. Many people who have practiced these techniques say they have been transformed, and that they never would have imagined something so simple could be so powerful and helpful.
This workshop includes movement, breathing, and relaxation techniques designed to
- Increase your stress resilience and renew your energy
- Release tension, dispel anxiety, quiet your mind, and help you sleep soundly
- Increase lung capacity, oxygenation, and cardio-respiratory health
- Improve recovery from negative life experiences or trauma
- Connect you to your inner self and others
- Improve relationships and empathic abilities.
