The Art of Breathing

ElaineNews, Newsletters

A zephyr is a gentle breeze, often a westerly wind. Zephyr, the personification of the west wind, appears in Botticelli’s iconic painting The Birth of Venus – his breath blows Venus from sea to land.  

Hasten Spring’s arrival by learning the Zephyr Breath in our newest video. Then practice the Zephyr Breath while viewing David Gilbert’s artwork. David is a longtime somatic explorer and worked extensively with Emilie Conrad, founder of Continuum, as well as other teachers. Megan Bathory-Peeler and I are featured in this photo and collage series.

Megan and I are also actively preparing for this year’s retreat at Omega, Continuum: The Art of BreathingJune 30 – July 5, 2024. Registration is now open! Participating is a much-anticipated annual ritual for so many in our community. Please join us, our fabulous faculty, and friends in a breathtaking, and breath-giving, environment.

On the cusp of Spring,
