Relaxing breathwork is an incredible tool to have for our busy lives. Stress and anxiety are completely normal parts of being human; they are our ancient natural responses to threatening situations, our fight or flight, and they are what help keep us safe by offering the speed to jump out of the way of an oncoming car or the strength to rescue a child in danger. However, as our survival stories have evolved (today’s threats are less tiger barreling down on you in the jungle and more work deadlines, subway delays, and social encounters) a lot of us have become unable to switch off this self-preservation mechanism and just relax.
This constant state of anxiety-related stress wreaks havoc on our body in so many alarming ways—our memory, immune system, bone density, weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, the list goes on are all negatively impacted…but with relaxing breath work, we can actually reset this system and allow our body to ease up and let go.
This breathing series consists of 5 different videos each covering a different breathwork technique. Each one uses our breath to create an almost meditative state, signaling to our nervous system to relax the body and switch off the sympathetic nervous system (the fight or flight response) and instead activate the parasympathetic nervous system (our state of calm and relaxation).
The outcome is simply arming yourself with tools that will allow you to be more relaxed, self-aware, calm, and peaceful while also offering the clarity for a new perspective on life and the ability to manage stress better in the future.
