Breathing Through Challenging Times

Learn simple movements, breathing, and meditation techniques that will help to relieve stress and build stress resilience, increase empathic abilities and relationships, and help to increase cardio-respiratory health.

In this class that is meant for people of all abilities and ages, we’ll help to ease the stress of these challenging times (and life!) while increasing your ability to connect by working through a series of gentle movements and utilizing breathing rates both with movement and alone. The techniques used in this class are based in Qigong, coherent breathing, and guided meditation. They are safe for everyone and supported by scientific studies.

Take some time to connect to yourself and others during these challenging times.

This course will be offered on Tuesdays, February 16th – March 23rd, 2021 from 12:15pm – 1:00pm. This is a live virtual class held via Zoom. The meeting link will be emailed to you one hour before each class.
