Learning to breathe properly can help you ease symptoms of stress, sleep better, and find inner calm. Award-winning filmmaker and yoga instructor Yolanda Barker is here to teach us how.
Take a breath – and learn to breathe again.
Athletes, singers and even the US Navy SEALs know a secret: Breathing is at the core of everything we do. We breathe over 20,000 times a day, and the way we breathe has profound effects on our physical and mental health. However, many of us don’t breathe properly.
In this livestream event yoga teacher and award-winning documentary filmmaker Yolanda Barker will show us the importance of breathing – and reveal techniques to help us breathe better.
Grounding the information in science and her observations as a long-term yoga teacher, Yolanda will share practical insights to help us improve our breathing on a day-to-day basis, as well as shining a light on the physiology of stress and its effect on the body, mind and emotions.
With research, practical exercises, anecdotes and advice, this livestream talk will show how breath practice and the knowledge gained through it are important and powerful resources to integrate into our daily lives.
