Introduction to Breath Meditation

A Fearrington Cares Education Program

Thursday, January 28, 1:30 pm via Zoom

This program will introduce SKY (Sudarshan Kriya Yoga) Breath Meditation, a set of breathing techniques that can help foster serenity. Every emotion has a specific breathing pattern, so learning to focus on and control the breath can help us manage our mind and emotions. The rhythmic breathing patterns of SKY Breath Meditation can lead the practitioner toward a state of deep meditative relaxation, reducing anxiety, anger, insomnia, and depression.

Lee Farrow, based in Mountain View, CA, and the daughter of a Fearrington resident, will lead the program. She will offer demonstration and coaching as well as findings from scientific research related to the technique’s effectiveness. Lee became a certified instructor for The Art of Living Foundation in 1997. She currently supports caregivers, military families, and her local community by teaching meditation and SKY Breathing for Kaiser Permanente and Project Welcome Home Troops.
