Assignment for yoga class, which is focused on breathing

This email describes your midterm assignment for yoga class, which is focused on breathing. The assignment is due before the semester break (deadline April 1 – but if you absolutely can’t make that deadline, you can pass it in the first week after the break – no later). You’ve been introduced in class to a few yoga breathing exercises, including yoga 3-part breathing (when we’re lying on the floor resting the hands on the abdomen and chest), Pranayama (standing deep breathing), Nadi Shodhana (alternate nostril breathing), and Kapalbhati (diaphragm breathing at the end of class). • I’m attaching a brief article about breathing – please read it. • I’ve talked about the physiology of breathing – how the body breathes -, and would like you to study the diagrams at this link that show the body’s process of breathing so that you understand it clearly: https://www.verywell.com/ physiology-of-breathing-998219 Your assignment the past few weeks has been to monitor your breathing patterns, especially when you are feeling stressed or anxious; then to pause and take a few deep breaths before dealing with the stressful situation; and to pay attention to how that affects your approach or response to the situation. • Please write a two-page paper about your observations, and include a brief description of the physiology of breathing, i.e. how the body breathes – (in your own words – don’t just copy what you see at the link) Please write a two-page paper about your observations, and include a brief description of the physiology of breathing, i.e. how the body breathes – (in your own words – don’t just copy what you see at the link)
