[Live Streamed] A Tour of the Breath Muscles with Linda Oshins
Jun 27, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm| $60
3-hour online session with Linda Oshins
This workshop is foundational for teaching breathing, holding private sessions for people with breathing problems or just knowing fully our own breath patterns. Together we will do a series of exercises that heighten sensation in the primary, secondary and tertiary breath muscles so that we can easily feel how they move, how tension in those muscles affects our breath patterns, and how those patterns change as we release old dispositions. Having a felt sense of each muscle group, we will work through exercises that promote healthy coordination and timing among them. As a side effect, by the end of our time together, we will all be profoundly relaxed with an easy sense of ourselves in the world because “It requires more energy for a living system to restrain itself into immobility than to allow movement and shifting” (Bonnie Gintis).
While we will have a conversation at the end of our time together on how our experience might relate to teaching breathing, this is an experiential workshop open to anyone—yoga teachers and anyone interested in this exploration.
Date & Time: Saturday, June 27th, 10am – 1pm
Cost: $60 – Must preregister to receive Zoom link
