Reclaim the most neglected, yet powerful tool your body has. It's waiting for you.
We are born the perfect breathers. But as we go through life, emotional upsets cause us to hold our breath and we develop poor breathing patterns. Wonderbreath is a circular, connected breathing method that will help you increase energy, ease respiratory conditions, release emotional blocks, transform your state of mind, boost immunity, alleviate stress and anxiety, build resilience, heal trauma, improve sleep and increase your capacity for awe and wonder.
As babies, we are born the perfect breathers. Watch how their little tummies inflate and deflate; modelling the perfect diaphragmatic breath. But as we go through life, we pick up bad habits and more importantly, find ourselves experiencing anything from minor upsets to big traumas. In these moments, we automatically hold our breath. In social and work situations, we can hold back from expressing ourselves fully. That might be down to social stigma (not great to cry in the supermarket) or fear (I’ll probably get the sack if I start shouting now) which prevents our emotions from exiting our bodies. Suppressing our emotions and holding our breath tends to lead to poor breathing patterns in adulthood and can add to more stress and anxiety in our bodies. And that’s not good for our physical and emotional health.
Most of us are actually only getting between 25 and 30% of the air capacity into our lungs that we could be if only our breathing was a little more open and if we were more conscious of our breathing patterns. Did you know that breath is our main source of energy? It’s not food (or coffee!) as you may have thought. Instead, over 70%, of the energy that we use on a day-to-day basis comes from our breathing.
Isn’t that amazing?
Most of our breathing is unconscious, meaning we're not really aware of it. It’s just, well, happening isn’t it? We’re taught how to count, draw and brush our teeth, but rarely how to breathe. And yet it’s essential, because without good breathing, we’re not fully living. We’re not at our optimum health. Yet when you make breathing a priority and learn how to breathe effectively, it’s an incredibly powerful tool that will enhance your life in every way. You'll begin receiving more oxygen into your lungs which in turn nurtures and regenerates your cells. Yogis and those practicing other ancient arts call this lifeforce energy.
Now doesn't that sound like a good idea?
A Conscious Connected Breath session will give you back your breath, so that you can both improve and maintain your health and wellbeing and re-learn how to use this incredible system you’ve had right there inside you, all this time. Some have called it your own pharmacy. I like that idea. Breathing better will remove more toxins from your body, boost your immune system (particularly important right now) and allow you to let go of all that emotional baggage you’ve been carrying around with you for years.
Breath work can very deep and very powerful, taking you to places you’ve never been before. It’s a revelation to most of my clients. And whilst meditation can do wonders for quietening the mind, you’ll soon find that breathwork is on a whole other level.
