Pranayama Breathing

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (No Ratings Yet)

    The ancient practice of Pranayama consists of long, sustained and controlled flow of inhalation, exhalation and retention of the breath. This disciplined breathing relaxes the body and blood pressure and increases oxygen levels to the brain, lungs and vital organs, helping practitioners to improve their overall health and well-being. By combining Pranayama with meditation techniques at this Faculty and Staff Assistance Program seminar, participants will experience strength of mind and control of senses and become more focused and productive with their tasks at work and personal life. The seminar will be facilitated by Angela Alvarado, a member of the University of Miami Mind-Body Medical Work Group. She is dedicated to bringing optimum health and mindfulness practices to the patients, caregivers, doctors and nurses at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center and UHealth Tower (formerly University of Miami Hospital) by offering yoga, Pranayama and meditation.
