    Dawn Brooks, owner of Yoga Elements and teacher of various forms of yoga and reiki, will speak on the topic of “Yogic Breathing” at the Nov. 17 meeting of the Emerald Coast Meditation Society. She also will demonstrate this form of breathing and will teach audience members how to do it.

    The ECMS will meet at 6:30 p.m. at Christ the King Episcopal Church, at 480 N. Co. Hwy. 393, Santa Rosa Beach, one-half mile north of Hwy. 98. The meeting, open free to the public, begins with 30 minutes of silent meditation.

    “You can learn to use mindfulness, breath and intention to enliven the energy centers and channels in the body,” says Brooks. “The practices presented are simple meditations that move energy through the body to wake up energy channels and heal old injuries, no matter the cause.”

    Brooks is an experienced yoga instructor with special interest in a spiritual path that includes meditation and “healing from the inside out.” She owns and teaches classes and workshops at Yoga Elements in Carillon Beach, Panama City Beach.

    Brooks says she began practicing yoga in 2003 to help with her own assorted physical problems. She says she “fell in love with yoga” and began teaching it at a fitness center in 2005. In 2008 she attended Discovery Yoga Teachers Training in St. Augustine, a five-week, 200-hour course in kripalu yoga. This qualified her as a registered teacher with the Yoga Alliance.

    In 2011 she completed 500 hours of advanced training, to qualify as a Master Yoga Teacher. Her continuing studies are in yoga as therapy, with a special interest in fibromyalgia and chronic pain.

    She has been a registered nurse since 1984 and has practiced nursing in many different capacities, including in surgery and with pain-management patients. Brooks hails from Kansas, where she did her nurse’s training. She moved to this area in 2012. She is married and has two sons.

    The ECMS is an ecumenical group open to anyone. It meets on the first and third Thursdays. The evening will end around 8 p.m. with a short guided meditation. Anyone who would like meditation instruction should come at 6:15 p.m. Questions? Contact Nancy James, nancyjames@embarqmail.com.
