Learning how to breathe properly is the ultimate mind, brain and body hack. In this workshop series, Breath Mechanics: Improving Your Life through Core and Breath Work, you will learn the anatomy of your 3-part breath and nervous system and how to use deep breathing and myo-fascial self-massage techniques with Yoga Tune Up® balls to lower stress, breath correctly and increase your capacity for whatever you want to do in your life. The workshops can be attended individually or as a series. Each workshop will provide you with a toolkit to welcome in more resilience and the ability to maintain a sense of calm and peace. Better breathing mechanics will help you develop better athletic performance – whether you’re a top athlete or just trying to be more active in your life.
