Breathing is life
Breathing is something that we all do. Yet it is something most of us take for granted and pay little attention to. While breathing is essential to life, did you know that your breath has an amazing capacity as a self care tool for your body and mind?
How you feel effects how your breathe. For instance, if you are feeling nervous or anxious you may notice your breath quickening, whereas if you are relaxed you may notice your breathing deepening and slowing.
But the reverse is also true: how you breathe effects how you feel. Simply taking a few deep breaths can bring about feelings of calm and relaxation. And this is just one example of the power of the breath.
Breathing well can also help to:
- Relieve stress
- Aid relaxation and improve sleep
- Balance mood and energy levels
- Increase mental focus
- Boost the immune system
- Reduce blood pressure and help to manage pain
While there are many approaches to breathwork the techniques I use are very safe and accessible to all ages, backgrounds and experience. It is easy to understand and most of all easy to practice. I offer both small group courses and 1-2-1 breath coaching.
