The Joy of Breathing Workshop
with Ilya Tsinis
Breath is the engine of health, performance, and joy. In this two-hour workshop, we will do a deep dive into breathing, including deep breathing, waking up the breath, special breath exercises for respiratory health, the relationship of breath to posture and emotions, breathing during various exercise modalities (stretching, running, "working in," heavy lifting, etc.), and active recovery. The emphasis will be on application and hands-on exercises. You will come away with new tools you can immediately apply in all areas of your life.
All levels welcome!
