Diaphragmatic Breathing

2022-07-26T14:50:27-05:00

Inhale, exhale. Sounds simple, right? If your chest rises and falls with your breath, there’s actually a better way to breathe: with your diaphragm. Diaphragmatic breathing increases how much oxygen gets into your blood, reduces blood pressure and heart rate, helps you relax, and improves muscle function during exercise to prevent injury and strain. Join Ashley Kumar, physical therapist and personal trainer, for an interactive seminar in the Oak Room to learn proper diaphragmatic breathing techniques that you can incorporate into your daily life and workouts.
