Did you know?


As we grow older we breathe less fully

Some people only use one third of their lung capacity

Shallow breathing is a contributory factor to disorientation, loss of memory and vitality

The brain requires three times as much oxygen as the rest of the body’s tissue cells

Inadequate oxygen supply will impair organ function

Restricted breathing is linked to depression and anxiety.

Change your breath and you can change your mind


The breath is intimately connected to the mind. If the breath is agitated, so is the mind.

Therefore to quiet the mind in order to focus its’ attention, we must first learn to regulate the breath.

Breathing is the key to yoga, once mastered it can help with asthma, anxiety, improve athletic performance, sleep and life!
