Chest-Opening Poses & Breath Awareness. This class explores chest-opening poses and the way in which they influence the breath. It features multiple variations of the seated asanas baddha konasana and upavistha konasana. Experience these poses in different positions: upright, supported, and reclining. Each variation will give you a different insight into how your breathing, specifically your diaphragm and ribcage, works during inhalation and exhalation. Breathing is a natural and continuous process, yet most of us rarely pay attention to it. In this session you will explore how different postures can impact your breathing pattern. Some poses promote deeper breaths, and others might restrict it slightly. This class aims to help you identify which poses encourage better breathing habits. Deepen your connection between body and breath. Improve overall health and well-being.
