30 – Minute Experiential: Breathing Lie Down in Prone
This thirty minute experiential workshop is open to all. Starting with everyone in semi-supine or in a chair there will be a brief explanation of the benefits of lying in a supported and directed prone position. A foundation will be provided to learn for ourselves and teach others to lie prone with the breath in both virtual and in-person AT private lessons and classes. Additionally, participants will be given some research regarding hospitalized COVID patients and lying prone. We will also explore how, anecdotally, breathing in prone can help with COVID recovery, breathing illnesses, and as well as how it can assist wind musicians, singers, and actors.
In this session the participants will be guided into the supported prone position and asked to experiment with lying down and breathing. Some simple breathing exercises and controlled exhalations will also be explored in this position. Participants who want to experience the lie down in prone are encouraged to bring a few pillows (or an extra yoga mat) and a towel for this session. Participants who do not wish to lie down will be asked to observe and, if there is interest, to use listening hands on the individuals who are lying down. Finally, there will be some time to discuss individual experiences, the benefits and pitfalls related to lying prone in an AT context in-person and online.
