The Science & Art of Deep Breath

  • Destiny Community Cafe 5060 Dorchester Road #320 North Charleston, SC, 29418 United States (map)

We breath every day and rarely are conscious of it. But did you know deep breathing can be a healing practice? Dr. Sundar Balasubramanian is a cell biology researcher at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) who studies mechanisms involved in resistance to cancer therapy. He is also a practicing yogi, yoga biology researcher and founder of PranaScience Institute. His book, PranaScience: Decoding Yogic Breathing, explains his research and personal journey through the practice of yoga breathing. Or you can hear about it in person when you join us in celebrating Indigenous Peoples Day on Monday, October 14th at  Destiny Community Cafe. Enjoy delicious food and good company as we learn how deep breathing techniques benefit the immune and nervous systems in our bodies. And we will draw inspiration from mandalas as we practice the art of relaxing through repeated patterns. And everyone will get to take home their own colorful, geometric art creations.

6-8pm enjoy a short science presentation, art creation, community conversations and family-style dinner.
