Belly Breathing

Breathing is a natural thing.

But how many folk give any thought to the way that they breathe ?

Discovering how you breathe provides deep insight into the cause of your muscle aches and pain.

How you respond to everyday life with physical tensioning is an important message from your body.

Overlook the messages, maybe because they are so habitual that you cant feel them and your body will provide you with more and more messages.

What we call stress is imbalance in our homeostasis, the balance between our physiology and the environment.

This 15 minute lesson introduces belly breathing and draws attention to the way muscle tension changes as you breathe with the base of your lungs and top of your lungs.

Short Relaxation Sequence To Use in Pregnancy

This is a 10 minute relaxation sequence that I recorded for one of my stressed out Mum's who works all hours and needed something for herself. I recorded it a couple of years ago, and have done some Tension Release Hypnosis for use during childbirth. Its not so much in the public domain now as it was a couple of years ago, but if you ask I can arrange to send some along to you.

Happy February
