Minneapolis, MN, April 21, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- In a bad mood? We’ve all been there – from being stuck in traffic to being stuck in debt.
Deanna Reiter and Troy Stende believe there’s a simple solution to shifting out of a bad mood and it’s right under your nose.
All you have to do is change your breathing.
“When people get angry or scared, their breathing is usually shallow and choppy,” says Reiter, a Breathing Coach in St. Paul. “On the flip side, deep diaphragmatic breathing through the nose creates a feeling of peace and happiness.”
Stende believes that ninety percent of people suffer from breathing problems. “Typically, we’re breathing only into our chests and shoulders and through our mouths. It’s not ideal. If we’re not breathing deeply enough, we’re not getting enough oxygen. Then everything inside us is running poorly – our digestion, our memory, our hormones, our immune system and our heart.”
According to Reiter and Stende, it’s this type of breathing that keeps us in a “fight or flight” mentality, which makes us stressed, tired, unmotivated, depressed, anxious, forgetful and unhealthy.
In a two-day workshop they teach nationwide, this husband and wife duo help people return to a more natural breathing rhythm, through a technique they developed call Qi Breathing. “Smooth, steady breathing increases energy and teaches the body how to relax,” Stende says. “When you’re relaxed, you’re happier.”
Reiter, a former science teacher, said she felt the effects of poor breathing firsthand. “In my mid-twenties, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and acid reflux. I was prescribed a lot of medication and told I would be on it for life. When I learned to breathe better, my health improved. I haven’t been on any medications for years.”
Reiter and Stende are teaching their next two-day Qi Breathing workshops in St. Paul on May 6-7 and in Los Angeles on May 19-20. For more information, visit: http://www.ExperienceQiBreathing.com.
