In all of the work I have done with individuals over the years, the most common physical dysfunction I see in almost all(yes, you read that correctly)individuals is that of breathing function. Correcting dysfunctional breathing is fundamental to physical, mental and emotional well-being. Without correction, there will be limited experience of ease within the individual, and the physical, mental and emotional functions suffer. Given you breathe every moment of your valuable life, the impact of dysfunctional breathing cannot be understated. Ensure your breath is your greatest ally, not your foe, and come with me on a journey of the breath, the meeting place between your biology and psychology, and change the dynamic of how you breathe-in and digest the world! A thorough and invaluable experience for all participants!
