About the event
Ed Harrold’s Breath AS MedicineTM training focuses on nasal dominance by applying the principles and philosophy of yoga breathing (or pranayama) to improve breathing rates and patterns; thereby, improving brain health, heart health, respiratory health, nervous system imbalances, endocrine health, circadian & ultradian rhythms as well as cognitive function and emotional intelligence.
Pranayama (or yoga breathing) is the science of learning to control the breath for various physiologic, biochemical, biomechanical and psychological outcomes overlooked in current health and wellbeing programs. As the research affirms, the therapeutic benefits of Yoga Breathing (or Pranayama) reveal itself through the positive effects on our Central/Autonomic/Enteric Nervous Systems, Immune, Digestive, Cardiovascular, Brain & Neuroendocrine systems.
