The Anatomy of Breath & Balance: What Complete Breath & Easy Balance Have In Common

In yoga, we yoke together the elements of movement with breathing. They are unmistakably linked no matter what, for life! But in yoga, the components of a truly complete breath are the keystone for balance.

In this class, we pull apart the way that each component of each breath hooks into the the body; structurally, physiologically, spiritually and mentally.

These relationships are essentially innate and so you already know them. They simply get interrupted by old movement habits, by illnesses and injuries, and what feels natural may be a compensation in disguise, easily switched back to true form and complete breath by that very understanding.

We’ll look at the actual structural anatomy of the breath so that you can see inside and fully grasp the ramifications of all that you give yourself when you go all the way! And we will look at the actual structural anatomy of balance and all of the components that give a sense of safety to standing on one foot.

Next we will explore these anatomies within yoga postures to feel how the patterns, the thoughts, the intentions and sometimes our concerns repeat themselves throughout the practice.

Sherry Brourman is a physical therapist (47 years), a yoga therapist, (16 years) and an author ( book #1, Walk Yourself Well, Hyperion, 1998, book #2, Using Yoga Therapeutically, Handspring Publishing~underway {with a ways to go}). Sherry’s work is a system fueled by a passion for both feeling and seeing the grace of fluid movement. In this system, all of the koshas (layers of being) and all of the gears (structural body) can be witnessed in one movement. Whether a footstep or one asana, the information is all there, visual, and teachable. Sherry teaches within yoga teacher trainings, yoga therapy certification and mentorship programs and physical therapy seminars internationally.
