Unfurl: An Installation

Art and yoga meet in a re-wilding of Breathe Yoga & Wellness's 131 West Union display window. With her sculpture “Unfurl”, artist Jen Carson manifests reluctance and inevitable opening; a human spine is tightly furled like a fern frond, but fed by hope, trust, nurturing, and the simple seduction of being alive, begins to unwind from its protective coil. 

Screen Apnea

Screen apnea is the temporary cessation of breath or shallow breathing while sitting in front of a screen, whether a computer, a mobile device or a television.

... shallow breathing, breath-holding, and hyperventilating trigger the sympathetic nervous systems toward a fight-or-flight state.

Kirtan Band Wanted!

Are you familiar with Kirtan? Kirtan (pronounced kir' tahn) is a form of music that is a sort of prayerful hymn. Like Christian hymns or any other melodic form of song with meaningful words sung in repetition, Kirtan has its roots in chant derived from Sanskrit language, evoking a sense of deep devotion and reverence. The name itself has Hindi roots, but in many modern styles of Kirtan music, there’s no specific religious dogma … just people enjoying the sounds of words leaving their lips, movement inspired by the movement, all accompanied by simple instruments.

March Community Yoga & Update

March 2016 Community Yoga Classes, 1-2pm, Mixed Levels (Beginner Friendly!), by Donation

From Becca Toman, Breathe instructor: "Hello Breathe Family! I wanted to give an update about the donation based class held on Fridays at 1pm. This past month, we raised over $100 to go towards Options, the local women and children’s victim assistance organization. I am so proud of the community that comes out and donates towards local causes. We raised that much money through small donations and in the mean time we were able to breathe and be present together.
