The Art of Breathing Online



Workshop Details

June 21, 2002, Friday, 4:45pm - 6:00pm, Workshop, "The Art of Breathing", at the Fifth Annual Chi Celebration, on the campus of The University of San Diego, California.

Breathing is as natural as inhaling and exhaling.  We breathe approximately 20,000 times each day.  Breathing incorrectly however, produces tension, exhaustion, vocal strain, and encourages a host of aches and illnesses.  This program will offer an overview of the principles and technique of "The Art of Breathing."  There will be demonstrations and audience participation through exercises and imagery drills.  You will focus on the application of correct breathing and learn to incorporate these techniques into your daily activities.  You will also learn how to recognize the common mistakes made in breathing, and able to correct them through exercises.

The powerful life energy obtained through proper breathing will improve and maintain your health and well-being.  These breathing techniques can aid in the management of stress, increase stamina and coordination, help a person work through pain, promote healing, and enhance speech, singing, athletics, meditation, martial arts, Qigong, and more.
