September 27—Releasing Tension in the Diaphragm

When we encounter a lot of stress in our lives, we tend to hold our breath, resulting in tension in the diaphragm.  If this occurs often enough, then our relaxed breathing may be restricted. This will affect us even when we aren’t stressed, . Also, when we sit for long periods of time, the front body shortens.  This also can create restrictions in the function of the diaphragm.  This class explores many tools available to us to help release this tension, free the diaphragm, allow for a more relaxed breath and the free the flow of prana.  All Levels.
