What is Breathwork? And Why is it Important for Me?
Updated: Feb 28
Breath is literally life!
Think of the breath as a broom that is capable of going into the basement of your life and clearing out the oppressed unresolved residue that has accumulated and has been negatively affecting your beliefs, emotions, and consciousness. These releases pave the way for core healing, integrated wholeness, internal alignment, and the wisdom of the soul to be accessed.
Physical health benefits of breathwork may include:
Balanced blood pressure
More time in deep sleep
Reduction of PTSD and feelings of trauma
Stronger respiratory function
Better immune system
Release of stress hormones from your body
Emotional benefits may include:
Fewer feelings of depression and anxiety
Better mental focus
Decrease in addictive behaviors
Most of us harbor repressed emotions due to the fact that expressing emotions is often socially shamed, there were no role models demonstrating emotional intelligence, or our emotions made others feel uncomfortable, so we supress them. When left unattended, these imprints begin to create distortions and chaos in your health, relationships, career, finances, and sense of self.
According to Wim Hof, the breath literally detoxes the brain cells and activates the mitochondria, alkalizing and oxygenating the blood flow throughout the brain and body. Shifting the oxygen ratios and enhancing blood circulation to the brain begins to clear the pituitary gland (3rd Eye Chakra) and pineal gland (Crown Chakra), which the yogis identify as the energetic spiritual gateways to higher consciousness.
