Breath is one of the most powerful tools that we have to awaken our body. Breathing deeply into your body brings more oxygen into your blood capillaries and nerve endings which helps to create more sensation in your body.
The lungs and diaphragm support our breath but very few of us are fully breathing. Most of the time our breath is shallow and stays in the upper part of our body. But your lungs and diaphragm reach all the way from your collarbone to your pelvis.
In this practice we will explore the depth of our breath and notice what happens in our body when we focus on deeply breathing into all of areas of our lungs and diaphragm.
