Lung workshop: breathing, relaxation, movement and stretch | online

1 workshop on Friday from 18:45-20:45 h

Teacher
Natalie Heller

For whom
For everyone who wants to boost immunity and uplift their mood.

Content
This online workshop is targeted at deepening your awareness of your lungs. We use hands-on self experiential anatomy to experience the capacity of the lungs. Through imagery and with precision we bring the thoracic region into gentle movement and stretch. We learn how to enable flexibility in the ribcage, how to free the breath, and how to loosen the diaphragm.  We will also learn the basics of the anatomy of the lungs and diaphragm and how the body systems collaborate in order to create homeostasis in the body as a whole.  Perfect for boosting immunity and uplifting your mood.
I draw from a variety of somatic practices including from the work of Eric Franklin, Emotional Freedom Technique, Eva Karzacg and many more.
