There is clear scientific evidence that regulating the breath can quickly calm the mind and lead to sustained physiological wellbeing. James Nestor, author of the New York Times Best-Seller Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art argues that most of us are breathing incorrectly and that poor respiration is the underlying cause for many common health issues. In this course participants will learn some basic breathing exercises drawn from ancient yogic breathing techniques that are useful for reducing stress and anxiety. This is a short form of the course offered in Fall 2020. Repeat participants are welcome.
Robert Sankara Moses is a yogi with 45+ years of teaching experience and a deep understanding of the neurological processes associated with yogic breathing. His extended bio can be found at this link.
The course material will be cumulative therefore please plan to attend all classes. Class recordings will be made and available for student practice. Participants are encouraged to refrain from eating a meal at least one hour prior to the class.
