Experience breathing, movement, and meditation techniques for a deep, rejuvenating, transformational experience that will enhance your physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. These benefits have been enjoyed by health-care practitioners, yoga teachers, military veterans, First Responders, and individuals with PTSD, anxiety, depression, ADD, cancer, and other medical conditions. Many people who have learned these techniques say they have been transformed, and that they never would have imagined something so simple could be so powerful and beneficial.

Through movement, breathing, and relaxation techniques, learn to:

  • Increase your stress resilience and renew your energy
  • Increase lung capacity, oxygenation, and cardio-respiratory health
  • Connect to your inner self and others
  • Improve relationships and empathic abilities

Important Note: Dress in casual layers and eat lightly before opening night. Bring a mat, cushions and a blanket for lying on the floor. Tuition includes a course manual.

The healing power of the breath

Richard P. Brown, M.D., associate professor of psychiatry at Columbia University and graduate of Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, gives more than 100 lectures and courses every year. Co-author of more than 100 scientific articles, books, and chapters, his neurophysiological theory explains the effects of yoga breathing, particularly for stress, anxiety, depression, and PTSD. He is a certified teacher of Aikido (4th Dan), Qigong, yoga, and meditation. Based on extensive research and clinical work, Dr. Brown combines the most rapidly effective breathing techniques, derived from ancient traditions and modern science, to relieve stress and improve mood, mental focus, and heart and lung function.

She practices Integrative Psychiatry, combining standard and complementary treatments. Her research focuses on mind-body practices for stress relief for veterans, and survivors of mass disasters.
