This is the first of two workshops presented on July 15 and July 16 with guest teacher Dennis Hunter.  For information about July 16, please use this link.  You can register for one session or both, see below for details. 

Breathing in, breathing out. It's the first thing you did when you were born, and it's the last thing you will do when you die. In-between, the average person breathes 21,000 times per day, but usually without much awareness, and often in habitual ways that are disordered and unhealthy.

In this interactive workshop, re-invent your relationship to one of your most basic life functions. Learn about the anatomy of breath and how different ways of breathing affect you on physical, mental, emotional, and even spiritual levels. Explore using a range of breath techniques to energize or to calm your nervous system.

This workshop is ideal for meditators, yoga practitioners, yoga instructors, body workers, or anyone interested in cultivating a deeper appreciation of the life force and how to work with it consciously through specific breathing techniques.

Workshop includes silent meditation, lecture, guided practices, and discussion.
