Breath training

Workshop (W56)

Participants will explore some breathing and relaxation techniques both dry (in the classroom or poolside) and in water immersion (shallow water where you touch - you don't need to know how to swim). The part in the water will take place in the two side lanes of the 25m pool. and will have a maximum depth of 1.30 meters. Participants will be able to try some breathing and body awareness techniques that will be useful for managing stress, modulating the state of activation, recognizing and managing emotions, improving attention focus. The exercises will be accompanied by Rosarita Gagliardi and her team who will guide those present in a specific path by trying some techniques and practical tools that the participants will be able to use later in daily life independently. Work that will be done will focus on relaxation, self-awareness and breathing. The Deep Inside state of mind methodology has already been validated by scientific protocols of neurophysiology applied to athletes and managers. (Deep Inside - state of Mind' methodology and 'Mind the Deep' research protocol in cooperation with Università Cattolica Sacro Cuore di Milano e Università Bocconi Milano) in which the benefits were seen on Stress management, emotional regulation, attentional focus, self-awareness.
