With every breath, we inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. This is our lungs' way of detoxification. If we don't breath properly, CO2 can build up in our lungs causing shortness of breath. My practice of diaphragm breathing and active release therapy becomes the most natural way for your body to breathe fully and detoxify.
No matter where you are, finding a moment to activate your core and become aware of yourself & your posture allows for a mind/body connection. Learning this practice, you will be able to adjust your body posture to every situation and activity in your life. Creating this knowledge of your own body's strength and development, through touch and body resistance therapy, introduces you to a deeper appreciation of what our bodies are capable of.
Be your change! If you want to gain weight, sustain your weight, or lose weight, this is the practice for you. Its all about how we structure each workout to optimize your best self!
Relieve your stress through the concentration of diaphragm breathing and the tangible awareness of your own body from head to toe.
