Surviving Stress - virtual live Zoom

$37

with Carole Freeman

Calendar Oct 12, 2022 at 5 pm, runs for 1 week

This class is not about learning a single breathing trick. It’s about correcting a dysfunctional breathing pattern and replacing it with emotional health and wellness. It’s estimated that more than 90% of people who suffer with chronic anxiety or stress have breathing pattern disorders, also known as Dysfunctional Breathing. The nervous system’s normal response to stress, anxiety, frustration, and fear, all involve stimulating a particular breathing pattern of shallow, upper airway, open mouth breathing, with tightened abdominals, which are designed to help us run from a burning building or fight off an attacker. If we are under chronic mental, emotional, or physical stress, this breathing pattern becomes a habit as our ‘default’ breathing which is not good because it stimulates the brain to perceive more stress and anxiety. At this point, this ‘default’ breathing pattern is working against us and is known as “dysfunctional”. Carole's one-night class will help you to take your emotional system from Depletion to Renewal using her breathing techniques.
