Breathwork is ultimately a form of self healing and gives you the tools to reset and heal
All of us, at some point or other will encounter challenges that manifest themselves in the mind, body or soul (and sometimes all three). Under the guidance of an accredited breathwork instructor, it is possible to learn and adopt a better breathing technique which will help you access and utilise more of the capacity of your lungs.
Think of this as allowing your body to reboot, sending it into autopilot rest mode where it can rebalance and crucially, heal.
The physical effects
By practising regular abdominal breathing, muscle memory that was once founded on 'fight or flight' responses is encouraged to 'rest and digest'. The transition from chest breath to abdominal breath activates your parasympathetic nervous system and in turn, helps reduce blood pressure and heart rate.
An improved breathing technique also aids muscle growth and increases the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the body. It wards against injury which can arise from untreated muscle tension and spasm and you will notice that your body can endure more intense exercise as your rate of breathing lessens.
As you access more of your lung capacity, you will start to feel great, have more energy and be set on a path to optimum health.
