Why Focus on Breathing?
the cornerstone of your health
Did you know that breathing is how you nourish your brain, muscles and every cell in your body? Created by Dr. Belisa Vranich, The Breathing Class will change your life. Most of us are NOT breathing properly or fully. Begin with ten deep belly breaths and lower your stress immediately. It's that simple. Studies have shown that as little as ten minutes a day of diaphragmatic breathing can improve attention, reduce stress and aid in better sleep. Training with Dr. Belisa has changed my life for the better. Let me help you improve your health.
"If I had to limit my advice on healthier living to just one tip, it would be simply to learn how to breathe correctly."
~ Dr. Andrew Weil
With Your Breath
I offer individual and group breathing classes. My clients are all ages, children to the elderly. Some clients purchase a 3-session package to learn/practice the various breathing exercises with a goal of transitioning them into their own daily practice. I also provide a one-time introduction to The Breathing Class. Contact me for more information.
"Being a mom of 5, I found it hard to relax at night in order to fall asleep. Taking ML's class, I learned how to deep breath, clear my mind and quiet my thoughts. Now I'm falling asleep quicker and I'm not waking up groggy in the mornings."
Americans are work-obsessed, tech-possessed and highly stressed in the frenetic pace of their daily lives. If we don't find a way to slow down, disconnect and bring balance to our bodies and minds, we will pay a heavy price. Our breathing has become shallow and quick. Most of us only use 20-30% of our lung capacity. Our brains use 20% of the oxygen we breathe. Dr. Arthur Guyton, author of the Textbook of Medical Physiology, said "All chronic pain, suffering and disease are caused by a lack of oxygen at the cellular level." Every time you breathe, you nourish your body and your brain. So why not learn to breathe well, the way your body needs you to breathe, to be happier and healthier?
"The Breathing Class was very beneficial to me. As a college student, I am constantly dealing with stress and truly learning how to breathe has helped me immensely with stress and anxiety reduction. ML was an awesome teacher who made the class easy to understand and apply to my life."
