Breath Alignment Teacher Training
Breath Alignment is a series of mindful breathing exercises where the parasympathetic nervous system (PSNS) is activated. It slows our heart and breathing rates, lowers blood pressure and promotes digestion. Our body enters a state of relaxation, and this relaxation breeds recovery. The more time we spend in a PSNS state, the healthier we are.
The PSNS is sometimes known as our rest and digest mode. It forms one third of our autonomic nervous system, alongside the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) also know as the fight or flight mode and our enteric system (ENS), sometimes referred to as our second brain. As a Breath Alignment Teacher you will teach your students how to activate their PSNS so that their body will be able to release feel good hormones of oxytocin and endorphins to release tension from their body, calm their mind and feel connected to their body and the present moment to achieve full body alignment.
This certification will teach you the following:
- The science of the breath
- Anatomy of the brain as it relates to breathing
- Trauma Informed Care
- BIPOC & LGBTQIA+ Informed Work
- Diversity & Inclusion
- Teacher Methodology
