JUST BREATHE

Standard

Breathing is an automatic function controlled by the respiratory centre of the brain. When a we are under stress, our breathing pattern changes. When we are feeling anxious, we take small shallow breaths using our shoulders rather than our diaphragm, to move the air in and out of our lungs. When our breath is shallow or we hyperventilate, we prolong feelings of anxiety and cause the physical symptoms of stress to get worse.
Yoga and and meditation offer simple but powerful ways to use breath to decrease tension, increase energy and promote physical and mental health.  The breath is the pulse of the mind.
RememberAs you breath, so you live; may your breath be full and deep.
