Breathing for Presence and Wellness
NATURE OF THIS COURSE
We are often immersed in stressful life rhythms facing life continuously under pressure and competitiveness, with schedules, routines and structured norms.
Breathing with presence emerges as a space to learn to recover energy, strengthen body, mind and spirit, and be able to relax.
“When through the complete breathing, the presence and awareness emerge to the surface, it is accompanied by deep relaxation, in which the body is internally still, there not much need of compulsory verbal communication, and thoughts are not like continuous waves”.
Breathing for Presence and Wellness is the result of exhaustive research in Yantra Yoga and Harmonious Breathing. Yantra Yoga is one of the oldest Tibetan yoga systems introduced in the Western World by Master Namkhai Norbu in the seventies.
Breathing for Presence and Wellness is a course aimed at offering the tools to develop presence, calm the mind, reduce tensions and improve physiological and brain functions, such as self-regulation, throughout a series of deep and precise movements connected to intention and presence in breath and movement.
It is a positive and enriching practice for any stage in life. Through breath, we develop self-knowledge, body awareness, strength, balance, coordination and flexibility, and we release states of anxiety, tension and stress, and this allows us to live in a more relaxed, conscious and efficient way.
• Learn to be present and aware in a complete, total and integrated way.
• Develop the sense of awareness, which results in the evolution of the person in society.
• Develop presence throughout breathe and movement.
• Reach a present and relaxed state in a conscious way.
