This breathwork progressive is a great introduction to the power of breathwork for supporting our nervous system and regulating our stress levels. We will explore the difference between meditation and breathing intentionally as fundamental tools for our overall well-being. Eliza guides us through various techniques and breathing patterns, and explains when and how we can continue to use these techniques throughout our daily lives.
What are the benefits of breathwork from Eliza's perspective?
The breath is our most vital and abundant resource. As human beings, we breathe upwards of 20,000 times a day. That is 20,000 daily opportunities to either intentionally support our well-being, or unknowingly deteriorate it. By first becoming aware of how we are breathing (the quality of the breath), we then have the choice to practice ways in which to support ourselves. Breathwork has many, many proven benefits, from delivering enough oxygen to our cells, to regulating our nervous system, to helping us release unwanted or stuck energy in the body, to improving creativity. The breath is the bridge between mind, body, and soul.
