Restoring Prana - Key Roles of the Diaphragm in Health and Vitality Most people know that diaphragmatic breathing is important. In reality, all breathing is diaphragmatic. However, correct engagement of the diaphragm in tandem with the abdominal muscles can greatly influence your mood, concentration, digestion, heart rate, blood pressure, and many other essential keys to health. In this online course, yoga therapist and breathing specialist Robin Rothenberg highlights new research which emphasizes the diaphragm’s role beyond respiration. We will explore the diaphragm as a primary core stabilizer and its relationship to functional movement and chronic pain. We also we examine how the biomechanics of breathing impact the nervous system, cardiovascular system, and the digestive system. Robin will present scientifically based insights into the importance of functional breathing and will introduce a number of accessible techniques to access the diaphragm and normalize diaphragmatic function. What you will learn: How the diaphragm functions in the body: it’s role as a primary respiratory, primary core stabilizer, and its influence on the primary systems of the body.
