Revitalize with Meditative Breathing

Dr. Nashalla Nyinda

March 17–19, 2023

Tuition $195 + 2 nights
Your subtle body channels ideally operate with free flow to help revitalize and nourish your body-mind-spirit. Modern life, stress and lack of settled breath all can clog the subtle body system.
Tibetan yogic breathing has caught the attention of modern science. Grounded meditative breath clinically shows benefit for inflammatory and pain responses, anxiety, insomnia, PTSD and mood disorders. In the transition between the stillness of winter and the activity of spring, we can harness the power of quieting the external chatter and turn our attention to the needs of our inner channels. Not only does meditative breathing quiet the mind, it can rejuvenate our entire system.
In this weekend we will learn simple, safe instructions for Tibetan medical and science backed breathing techniques designed to offer you a place of deep wellness and peace.

Bring comfortable clothes in order sit in meditation and move easily during practice sessions. Also bring warm layers and appropriate clothes for outside walking meditation.
