Your breath brings oxygen into your body so that you can thrive. When you are physically or emotionally stressed, it affects how you breathe. Breathwork helps to calm your stress and bring balance to your body.
Breathwork is trendy right now, but it’s not new. People have been practicing breathwork for thousands of years, and it has roots in yoga practice. The basic idea of breathwork is to release toxins and stress when you breathe out and nourish your mind and body when you breathe in.
Breathwork may also have a positive impact on your central nervous system. When you feel stressed, your breath tends to become fast and shallow. This limits the oxygen entering your bloodstream. Your brain tells your body that there is a threat, and your body responds in fight or flight.
When you take time to slow down and purposefully breathe, you tell your brain that everything is OK. Your brain communicates to your body that it’s safe to relax. The fight or flight response decreases, and your body can begin to function normally again.

Breathwork is a form of therapy that uses conscious breathing techniques to promote relaxation and healing. The practice has been used for centuries as a way to reduce stress, induce altered states of consciousness, and even heal physical and mental ailments. It can also be used to access subconscious memories and emotions and to explore one’s inner self.
Breathwork involves a series of conscious breathing exercises. These exercises can range from simple deep breathing to more complex techniques such as circular breathing, pranayama, and holotropic breathwork. During a session, practitioners typically sit or lie down in a comfortable position and focus their attention on their breathing. They may use various breathing patterns and/or visualizations to deepen their breath and bring awareness to the body.
The aim of breathwork is to help the practitioner move through and release any physical, mental, or emotional blockages, allowing them to become more connected with their inner self. The physical benefits of breathwork can include improved respiratory and cardiovascular health, increased energy levels, improved sleep, and even reduced anxiety and depression.
It is an effective tool for those looking to explore their inner self and improve their overall health and wellbeing. It is a safe and non-invasive practice that can be used to access a deeper level of relaxation, healing, and transformation.
