Teaching the Breath: The 3-D Diaphragm
Designed especially for yoga educators, this session will clarify many misconceptions that surround the subject of healthy breathing. Participants can expect to come away with more accurate concepts and language pertaining to:
Basic breath anatomy
Basic breath physiology
Breathing and the nervous system
Spinal Structure and Function: Cueing Breath and Spine
This workshop will begin with a brief history of the evolution and development of the human spine, viewed through the yogic lens of sthira and sukha.
We will then explore the principles of how breath and spinal movements can coordinate to produce healthy range of motion and support in yoga practice, with a particular emphasis on the creative use of teaching language.
