We all hold our breath at different times during the day. When breathing stops, all movement stops. Stopping movement for moments can help to focus attention on a specific task or thought. Then breathing starts again and movement begins with new information gathered while not breathing. Problems can arise when the breath is being held from being scared, fearful, avoiding difficult feelings or any other emotional reason. This can become a habit, a behavior that repeats itself throughout the day. The habit can then carry over into sleep causing sleep disturbances, sleep apnea, insomnia, snoring and night terrors. The repetitiveness of intermittent breathing dysregulates the metabolic stability of the body. Suspending breathing for a moment or two is not the only way that breath is held. Breathing can be contained or held to a small space and not allowed its full capacity by too much body tension. Breathing requires a flexibility that can accommodate a full range of expansions and contractions to meet the moment of what the body needs.
This class is an invitation to explore your personal dynamics of breathing and how you personally may or may not be limiting the potential of your breathing to provide
nourishment and support for a healthy and vibrant life.
