Breathing Group Class Syllabus
February 12th, 2024: What’s your breathing pattern?
Understanding why our breathing is important, is essential to changing it! In this session we’ll take an in-depth look at how breathing plays a vital role in our health. We’ll discuss how maladapted breathing patterns directly impact our nervous system, our muscle tension, chronic pain, and even the pH of our whole body. We’ll take preliminary measurements of how well each participant breathes, and monitor our breathing measurements for improvements over each session.
March 25th, 2024: Adapt your breathing for optimal health
In this session, we’ll use the baseline measurements from session one, to develop a treatment plan for each participant. We’ll explore breathing retraining exercises, nasal health, stretches and strengthening movements. An in-depth discussion on habit building will help set participants up for success!
April 22nd, 2024: Advanced breathing exercises
In this session, we’ll progress the breathing exercises with advanced tools and exercises that will allow participants to further challenge their breathing in a safe and effective manner. We will also continue to explore the breath with mindfulness practices.
May 27th, 2024: Posture & Breathing
Our posture directly affects our breathing mechanics. We’ll spend time determining your ideal positioning, and discuss how exercise can improve our breathing mechanics. Each participant will leave with an individualized exercise plan.
