Saturday Morning In-person Fall 2022 Breath Class with Certified Buteyko teacher Kathleen Rea - 9 class series.
DESCRIPTION: Buteyko breathing teaches you to breathe more gently and less rapidly through your nose. You’ll learn to breathe slower and deeper, which balances your breathing rhythms and nervous system and help you get more restful sleep. Can work to improve causes and/or symptoms of asthma, disturbed sleep, insomnia, and anxiety as well as help with fitness performance and concentration. Kathleen will also use her knowledge of functional movement to teach you exercises that will help you strengthen your tongue and deep front line designed to help you breathe through your nose and improve your breathing posture.
TIME: (9:30 am to 11:00 am)
(Doors open right at 6:00 due to after-school programs this means we usually get started by 6:05 pm)

TEACHER: Kathleen Rea has been teaching dance and dancing professionally for over 30 years. She danced with Canada’s Ballet Jorgen, National Ballet of Canada & Tiroler Landestheater (Austria) as well as freelanced. Kathleen has been and continues to be a faculty member at George Brown College Dance Program since 1999. Currently, she also teaches movement at the Centennial College Acting Program. Kathleen is the founder and director of REAson d’etre dance a not-for-profit dance company based in Toronto, Canada. REAson d’etre dance productions which produces a weekly dance jam in Toronto, Contact Dance International Film Festival, and dance-theatre productions.
Kathleen has choreographed over 40 dance works and been nominated for 5 DORA awards. Kathleen has a Master’s in Expressive Arts Therapy with a minor in Psychology and a Psychology certificate from Toronto Metropolitan University. She is the author of “The Healing Dance” published by Charles C. Thomas. Kathleen was a registered Psychotherapist in private practice for 17 years and recently left her private practice to peruse the Moving Breath Project. Being on the autism spectrum she also identifies as being neuro-atypical and works to educate the world about neurodiversity. While having autism brings with it challenges it also strengthens Kathleen's ability to see details and patterns in both movement and emotional expression which add to the skill level of her work. Kathleen has a passion for functional movement and is a teacher candidate for the Axis Syllabus since 2014. She started on this journey of study after her dance career left her with numerous chronic injuries. Through a slow process of learning to move functionally, she was able to regain her ability to dance. It is a joy for her to pass on a "user guide to the body" so that others can find their own way and arrive at whatever outcome may arrive from that.
Kathleen is also passionate about the Buteyko Breath Techniques and practices them daily. They have helped her have enhanced endurance in her dancing and also work to calm her nervous system in the midst of her busy life taking care of her children and running her dance company. Kathleen trained with Patrick McKeown through the Buteyko Breath Clinic and became certified as a teacher in 2022.
