Breath of relief
When faced with stress or trauma, our fight and flight response kicks in.
It is completely automatic for our survival.
We call it: “The Sympathetic Nervous System”.
What does this response do?
-It elevates our blood-pressure.
-It takes blood away from the gut to the skeletal muscles.
-It tightens the Psoas and our Diaphragm.
-It tightens our neck and our shoulder muscles.
-It stimulates our Immune System.
We all recognize tightness in our body.
It takes practice to move back to a state of “rest and digest.”
In Thursday’s class we will use the healing quality of our breath.
We will relearn the natural movement of the exhale: “the sigh of relief.”
And we will work with the postural muscles to support this process.
“You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might pray also in the fullness of your joy.”
