    Movement-Based Bodywork: Foundations Of Breathwork

    Ann Harman

    Join us in an exploration of the breath! The breath is a bridge between the voluntary and the involuntary nervous system, as a function that is usually under involuntary control, but can be consciously controlled when we wish. Full breathing massages the abdominal organs, as it mobilizes the muscles and bones with a gentle range of motion. Stress is decreased, and blood pressure is lowered.
