Welcome to Breath Body Brain. An innovative approach to professional development.

 

This workshop will provide an unshakable foundation on which you can layer all future success.

 

Public speaking is one of life’s great fear inducing activities. This fear manifests in myriad ways: shortness of breath, shaking hands, body, or voice, redness in the cheeks, sweating, loss of focus and mental clarity … I’ve heard it all and my answer is always this – Are you breathing?

A supple strong body promotes supple strong breath which creates availability for a supple strong brain.

In this training we will explore the concept of limiting beliefs that manifest in inhibited breath, bodily tension, and compromised cognition. We explore moving beyond those limitations into a space of possibility through the integration of three practices: yoga, an extensive voice/body practice, and practical exploration of public speaking fundamentals.

What you can expect from this training:

  • a meditation to identify limiting beliefs
  • a brief ashtanga based asana practice
  • an extended vocal practice
  • engagement exercises
  • constructing a narrative of possibility
  • presentation of narrative with personalized feedback
