In this course, you’ll discover all the ins and outs of how breathing works! In Breathing 101, we discuss the basics of how the respiratory system functions, including some functions that may surprise you. We talk through a deep understanding on how the diaphragm and ribcage work and we’ll also uncover how the muscles of the core, including the pelvic floor and the abdominal muscles, affect breathing.
Lastly, you’ll explore breathing in your own body with several experiential practice sessions that will help you integrate your new knowledge into your yoga practice and teaching!
For the practice sessions, it would be helpful to have a yoga mat, as well as a blanket or bolster. But if you don’t have those props, you’ll still be able to follow along.
