Technical Workshop – Neuralign Breath of Life Intro
Last week the Club held the first Technical Workshop outside of regular training and Safety Inductions.
Run by Neuralign’s Steven Scrofani, the ten or so participants found that not only do ancient Chinese breathing patterns help with relaxation and breath-hold, but so too does rolling a firm volley-ball sized ball around your abdomen to loosen the fascia around the important parts of the breathing mechanism. Sounds fun, right?
In a last gasp attempt in holding onto the summer vibes, the session was held in the open air.
Over 40 minutes or so, we were led through stretching, breathing, rolling and breath-holding and adopted some new techniques to extend our hold times.
Straight afterwards, we hit the pool to see whether there was a difference.
The proof is in the pudding they say and following training the consensus was that more technical workshops are needed! Once a month was the request.
That sounds like a positive start. To find out Steve’s perspective, you can check out his words via the Neuralign Facebook page here.
