Flying Dragon Qigong: Breathing to Lower Stress

Dr. Yancy Orchard introduces Flying Dragon Qigong. How we breathe is closely linked to our emotional state, our physical state of tension, our mental state, and to the degree of sympathetic activation of our autonomic nervous system.

By changing the manner in which we breathe, we can move ourselves from a primarily Fight or Flight pattern of response and toward a more Rest and Digest reaction.
