Starting in January we offered free live-streaming panel discussions where participants:
– Practice the art of deep (diaphragmatic) breathing,
– Describe benefits of mindful breathing, and
– Integrate the breathwork practices that work for them
One Breath Chicago is a program developed to:
– Provide free access to wellness resources for Chicago residents, Illinoisans, and our Global Community
– Explain the benefits of focused breathing on the body, mind, and emotions
– Create opportunities to practice deep breathing as a city and as a global community
– Create opportunities for equal access to integrative health and wellness tools across Chicagoland and cities beyond Chicago
– Initiate these practices in cities across our global communities, supporting other cities to begin their own One Breath Movement
We hope you will join us for these life-changing workshops and daily breathwork practices. Remember that You are the best You that You’ve got! Treat Yourself well. Take time for You!
