Breathing heals on many levels and understanding how it performs this function is good for our mental and physical well-being. Our breath constantly converts our life-sustaining energy, taking in oxygen, invigorating red blood cells and expelling carbon dioxide, which is a metabolic waste product.
By breathing deeply, you allow the diaphragm to drop downward, the rib cage to expand and create more space for the lungs to inflate. By mastering the art of deep breathing, increased oxygen floods into the body, eventually helping the heart pace to slow down to create feelings of calmness and relaxation.
“Breath work has had so many benefits for me in my life. It has helped me clear past trauma, heal my body physically, and mentally, allows me to breathe deeper which helps me in athletics, connect to a deeper aspect of myself so I can live my passion and purpose, helps me quiet my mind and focus better and allows me to just be in my moment. There are so many benefits to this practice and I would love to share with you something that has changed my life!”
