Therapeutic Application of Meditation and Pranayama
with D’ana Baptiste


Live Virtual Workshop

Sun. 8/15 10am – 2pm PST

Breathing consciously may be one of the most healing tools in your “yoga therapeutics” tool box.

Taking our breath off of auto-pilot, whether through the use of pranayama, breath work, or even meditation and nidra practices, combines ageless wisdom with cutting edge scientific discoveries.
Conscious breathing has tremendous physiological benefits: works all of the primary breathing muscles, increases lung capacity, increases VO2 max, and aims for a complete release of the exhale from the lungs. This energizes the body and improves our quality of life by giving us constant access to greater oxygen supplies.

Active breathing also supports the lymphatic system, acting as a pump for the circulation and elimination of lymph, supporting the cells in their efforts at regeneration.

At a deeper level, and perhaps more importantly, active breathing stimulates the limbic brain: the amygdala, hippocampus, hypothalamus. This network is the “storage depot” for emotions, memories, and primal reactions. Breath work generates theta brain waves, which moves our subconscious mind closer to our consciousness so that we can then review it from a place of objectivity rather than reactions. Thus we can release stress, memories of trauma, and frozen emotional states, creating space for new experiences that match our current vibrational pattern.
