Ellen Patrick, Co-founder of BREATHE Salt Rooms, developed Salty Yoga for Breathe. In this unique series of yoga classes, poses will be chosen to focus on developing strength, flexibility and range of motion in areas specifically used by the body to breathe. The end result will be a deeper breath, relaxation and a sense of vitality! To Increase vitality we need to know how to breathe properly as many of us have short and shallow breath.
Classes will take place during a salt session and are perfect conditioning for a more effective Salt Therapy treatment. The room is covered with pink Himalayan salt and while you are practicing, pure salt will be aerated into the room. As you inhale the healing qualities of salt, your respiratory system will detoxify. We'll focus on freeing up the lungs and entire thoracic cavity so this class is especially useful for those with respiratory issues and for tuning the 4th chakra (heart or anahata chakra). Salt's natural qualities are anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral. When you emerge from this class, your lungs will thank you for the extraordinary salt bath they just received! It's an all level class. Expect deep relaxation and rejuvenation plus lots of take-home techniques & poses.
