About the session:
Brought to you by Conquering Chronic Illness & TICNA groups, this 1 hour session of Pranayama breathwork with Dr Paul Holman will teach you techniques to implement into your daily routine that will significantly improve your overall health.
Pranayama breathing exercises have been proven to help with sleep quality and reduce insomnia, improve lung function and capacity, aid in lymphatic stimulation and detoxification, whilst improving immune function.
This style of breathwork also helps to lower blood pressure, improve brain and digestive system function, aid in healthy eating habits and weight loss, whilst improving parasympathetic nervous system function by calming the fight or flight response.
In addition, Pranayama has been shown to reduce stress hormones and relieve chronic stress symptoms, including anxiety, depression and PTSD symptoms.
No matter what your condition, you will benefit from this class.
More about Paul:
Paul Holman was born in the UK and did his medical and psychiatric training at Cambridge and King’s College Hospital, London.
He came to Australia in 1980 and worked in addiction and general psychiatry until going into private practice in 1992. While still in the UK he was greatly influenced by the European and British traditions of Naturopathy and Homeopathy and on coming to Australia continued this interest by becoming a founder member of The Australian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine.
Biofeedback, especially in relation to the breath, had been part of his practice for many years but was brought into focus by meeting the pranayama teacher Sri Bala Ratnam in 1999. From Bala he learned powerful core techniques which quickly made a difference to his health and which have stood him in good stead ever since.
Paul is now semi-retired from medicine but is keen to pass on what he has learned over the years.
He lives in Hurstbridge with his wife Philomena and the local birds and kangaroos.
