Benefits of Breathwork

Decreases stress, increases emotional balance

When stress enters your life, your brain releases cortisol, “stress hormone.” Deep breathing will lower your heart rate, more oxygen will enter your bloodstream and communicate with the brain to relax.

Calms and grounds nervous system

The breath is linked to your nervous systems. The parasympathetic will bring us to a relaxed state of mind. However, here we first breathe into our sympathetic nervous system that enables us to release stuck energy before we restore.

Detoxifies the body and boosts immunity

Deep diaphragmatic breathing stimulates the lymphatic system, 70 % of our toxins are released from our body through our breath. A fully oxygenated blood carries and absorbs nutrients and vitamins more efficiently. Essentially, the cleaner the blood, the better it can protect the body from bacteria, viruses etc.

Healing Subconscious Programming & Emotional traumas

About 95% of our brain activity lies beyond conscious awareness. Life events can be imprinted on our muscles and our nervous system, and if not released, it might show up as negative behavior. Releasing Breathwork can help to let go of stuck energy and heal from within.

Increase focus, creativity and strengthen intuition

More oxygen to the brain will help in achieving clarity, productivity and increased creativity. But is can also enable us to quiet our busy mind, and listen inward and hear what our intuition has to say

Relieves depression and anxiety

Built up emotional stress in the body can result in depression and an overstimulated nervous system over a period of time can cause anxiety or a controlling mind. Breathwork helps to calm the nervous system and let go of emotional stress.

Greater self love and self-acceptance

Releasing Breathwork can enable transient hypofrontality, which in short means that we bypass a part of our frontal lobe where the inner critic exists, the monkey mind, exists. Shut down the inner critic and gain an open heart.

Improves sleep patterns and alleviates insomnia

Deep breathing can increase the melatonin production, “sleep inducing hormone”, which is often at low levels in insomniacs.

Feelings of happiness, wholeness and courage

Deep breathing also ups your endorphins, the “feel good” chemical, helping you reach an emotional balance and a wanting to arise.

Relieves pain

Deep breathing triggers the release of endorphins, which besides helping us feel good, also can combat pain.

Increases Energy

Oxygen is the most important resource required by our cells. The more oxygen, the better the body functions, including organs and tissue.

Promotes deep relaxation

The rhythm and depth of our breath communicates with our brain. When conscious and slow, the mind slows down too.

Lower blood pressure

When muscles relax, the blood vessels are allowed to dilate. This improves circulation and can lower blood pressure. Deep breathing can also  slow down and regulate the heart rate, which also helps with lowering the blood pressure.

Improves digestion

The more you breathe deep, the healthier and cleaner blood flow you will have. That promotes the function of organs,  including your intestines.

Supports addiction recovery

Breathwork can calm and distract the brain, creating relaxation in body and mind. It can quiet those constantly grinding thoughts that make us feel less, and allows us to release blocked feelings and emotions.
