BREATHEXPERIENCE™:

"Growing Older with Sensuality, Vitality, and Grace"

a FREE Class on Monday April 3rd, 2006

with:

Margot Biestman
Director of the Marin-Sonoma Center
of the Middendorf institute for Breathexperience ™

We turn not older with years, but newer every day.
-— Emily Dickinson

Growing older with breathexperience ™ is very different from getting old. We explore how breath that we allow to come and go on its own—without our imposing on it—can move through our body with ease and comfort. In this class we learn through simple sitting, standing, and stretching sequences to sense breath movement in our body.

As we bring our presence to our experience of breath, we can become aware of ourselves as sensual, graceful, and with vitality. We can grow to love our body and our Self, with less need to "fix" something to try and make us look younger. We gain a sense of health and well-being, and often feel youthful along with our wisdom.

Presented by:
The Integrative Medicine Program at Sonoma Valley Hospital, which includes complimentary approachesfocused on healing the whole person—body, mind and spirit.

WHEN: 7-8 p.m. on Monday April 3rd, 2006
WHERE: Central Conference Room at Sonoma Valley Hospital, 347 Andrieux Street, Sonoma, CA 95476
