Never fear. This is normal. Come, us normal human folk will practice.
Our breath is our life force. We have different breaths for each emotion. Watching a horror movie? That gasp is a type of breath. At the beach staring out into the ocean? That full, relaxed sigh? That's a type of breath too. If we don't practice breathing, we can get stuck in bad habits - hyperventilating, holding our breath, short exhales - and create stress. And stress is a major culprit in a variety of physical and mental health problems.
You and me both. Yet, when I spend the time to sit and breathe, I am more productive, more positive, more open, and more awake to life.
Overworking and lack of self-care is also a sign of stress. Take care of yourself.

You are human, YES! The structure of the class is designed to lessen the negative attachment to this phenomenon. The breathing exercise grounds, the guided practice builds safety in discomfort (and acceptance of relaxation), and the unguided practice is an exercise in deepening your connection to your Self.
No. The classes are offered for ALL people, of any faith, religion, creed or spirituality. We are practicing being present and open to our innermost self.
Any teacher, myself included, is just another human being on this path of life.
