Deepening Breath Awareness with Yin and Pranayama with Jordan Castellanos

Yogic breathwork is an ancient form of purification for the body and mind and has powerful benefits. It's proven to calm the sympathetic nervous system which causes us to act or react, fight or fly. By interacting with breath control we reduce overall stress and the way we engage with the world! When breath technique is harnessed in stillness, it can be utilized within yoga postures to open and lengthen muscles as well as the minds capacity to produce neuroplasticity. Re­wiring your brain to quickly and instinctively change from negative reactions and thought patterns to a more stable emotional balance.
