Take control of your breath and the full therapeutic benefits of oxygenation.
How we breathe is a strong sign of how we feel. Shallow, rapid breaths can indicate feeling overwhelmed, stressed or anxious. While slow and controlled breaths can help calm the nervous system and shift into a relaxed state.
When we're feeling anxious, our sympathetic nervous system is in overdrive. Breathwork can help shift the nervous system out of 'fight or flight' mode and allow you to reduce the physical toll anxiety has on the body.
The low-grade stress we carry throughout the day can have a big impact on sleep. Breathwork has been shown to lower cortisol levels and calm the nervous system so you can fall asleep easier and wake up feeling refreshed.
Unprocessed trauma or negative emotions turn into energetic blocks that can cause physical pain and hold you back from experiencing life to the fullest. Breathwork creates a trance-like state that allows these emotions to surface and release... just like that!
Our bodies need oxygen in order to fuel our cells and create energy. Breathwork helps to increase and create energy. Breathwork helps to increase the amount of oxygen that is brought into the body, which can give you a surge of energy to use to achieve your goals.
Breathwork forces you to slow down and be more present. Not only does is give you a chance to experience deep relaxation, but it can also allow you to tap into feelings of joy and happiness that you must have been blocking.
