Take a Deep Breath and Improve Your Life!

Your breath is a fundamental bodily function connected to your heart rate, your blood pressure, and your stress response. It is also connected to your mood. 

The key to using breath as a stress reduction tool is learning how to breathe deeply and in a focused way.

These breathing exercises will teach you just that - and will bring you deep relaxation with little effort, and within only a few minutes.

The Scientific Benefits of Breathing

Research has found that controlled diaphragmatic breathing (also referred to as belly breathing, yogic breathing or pranayama), can provide immediate and positive effects on both physical and psychological wellbeing.

When practiced regularly, controlled breathing exercises activate the parasympathetic nervous system, reducing your level of cortisol (the stress hormone), thereby training your body to become calmer. Other benefits include:

Decreases anxiety and depression

Improves sleep

Strengthens our immunity

Strengthens our ability to regulate emotions

Reduces pain

Mandy Habener

Mandy Habener is a certified yoga teacher with a corporate background in civil engineering. She was drawn to the practice of yoga to reduce the stressful demands of work and to gain improved flexibility. She found this plus so much more - there came a deep calling to share the practice and benefits with others. For the last few years Mandy has been immersed in her passion, intensively studying and teaching yoga. She has completed more than 850hrs of formal training covering a range of different styles of yoga (Vinyasa, Hatha, Therapy and Yin). Her 'inner engineer' remains nourished through studying the science of yoga, particularly the 'how' and 'why' it works, a topic that she finds extremely interesting. Mandy believes that there is a yoga practice suitable for every person on this planet. She views our yoga mats as a training ground for life, always inviting the opportunity for self-enquiry, growth and transformation. Her aim for each class is to provide a fun, safe and supportive environment for each student to embark on their own journey of mindful movement. When she isn't practicing/teaching yoga you will most likely find Mandy at the beach, travelling, mountain biking or sitting in a cafe with friends/family.
