Yoga Therapy—Breathwork As a Way to Quiet The Mind

If you are an experienced yoga student, you understand the power of breath during asana and the benefits of breathing.

You may also have explored various pranayama techniques—ways of controlling the breath to move energy in the body.

As a Yoga Therapist, knowing various pranayama techniques and how and when to use them is an important tool in helping clients move toward their own healing.

We are all continually learning during our yoga therapy journey, and new questions constantly arise.

How can online learning account for this?

Breathing Deeply’s approach is to provide access to Brandt, our lead teacher, at regularly scheduled, live Q&A sessions.

No question is too simple, or too far-fetched.

In the video below, Brandt responds to a question from a student about kumbhaka, or breath retention, explaining the process and then sharing when it might be used effectively with yoga therapy clients.

Yoga Therapy for Muscular Dystrophy

As Yoga Therapists, we will often be approached by clients who report that they have received little help from western medicine.

Or we may see clients with conditions for which medicine has few answers.

Some conditions severely limit or make it impossible to practice asana, even chair asana as we know it.

Should we be intimidated by the idea of working with these people?

In this video, Brandt discusses working with muscular dystrophy, a particularly debilitating and challenging condition.
