Helping someone with their breathing mechanics can make a huge difference to their health and well-being. In this enlightening video Brian Dorfman will explain how the anatomy and physiology of our breathing directly effects our Sympathetic Nervous System and thus has direct effect on digestion, heart health, circulation, emotional state, hormonal balance and more.
Brian will explain the interconnectivity between the movement of the ribs to the Sympathetic Nervous System ganglia, the spinal cord, the spinal disks and the global balance of our physiology throughout the entire body system. Learn why breathing well is the basis of feeling well and how you can address a large range of dis-ease states by working with your client’s breathing patterns in yoga practice.
After this course you will better understand:
• Why breathing patterns are such an important component of Yoga Therapy.
