Breathwork, understood as the conscious awareness of your breath, is a practice that is thousands of years old. There are many variations, styles and names of breathwork and all provide the chance for personal transformation improving mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. It’s easy to become overwhelmed by stress and feel out of control. When you focus on breathing, you allow your body the chance to reset and recover from the negative side effects of stress. Heightened oxygen levels hold numerous benefits; more energy, reduced stress levels, and an augmented immune response that swiftly deals with pathogens. Breathwork, the process of deep rhythmic breathing, moves us out of fight or flight and into the parasympathetic nervous system.
