What is breath work
Breath work is specific breathing techniques designed to activate and shift our state in body and mind in a particular way. From ancient texts we read and learn that breath work has been used as a tool to access non-ordinary states of consciousness, and as a tool to live life in greater harmony with ourselves.
Some of the know benefits of doing breath work regularly are:
- Releases stress
- Balances the nervous system
- Increases emotional flexibility
- Stimulates the heart rate variability
- Stimulates healthy digestion
- Increases Mental clarity
- Energises the body
- Sharpens focus
- Releases toxins stored in the body
- Adjusts the PH balance in the body
- Bettering sleep
Besides stimulating our heart rate and regulating our two sub-nervous systems, it also seems as if a very specific neurotransmitter called DMT is released while doing some of the more powerful types of breathwork. DMT is also called the Spirit Molecule as it induces profound mystical and spiritual experiences in larger concentrations. When these transformative and powerful breathing styles are exercised, people often report of:
- Transpersonal experiences
- Feelings of “oneness with the universe”
- The releasing of trauma
- Physical and emotional healing
- Meetings with, and messages from the divine
- Seeing deep and profound parts of the self
- Revisiting childhood
- Life-changing breakthroughs
- Spiritual awakening
The effect of breathwork
No matter whether you are using breathwork to feel more balanced in your daily life, or as part of your spiritual practice, the effect is unmistakably: breathwork brings about a higher sense of self. A sense of something else and something deeper than just what your chattering mind is telling you, about the life you live and about who you are.
By doing breathwork regularly you start living from a different sense of who you are. This is powerful and transformative, as it brings about higher intuition, greater wisdom and deeper peace.
Breathwork is for everyone, and different types of breathwork can be applied at different times, and for different needs. Powerful and energising breathworks for starting the day and connecting with our intention. Balancing breathwork throughout the day keeping our body and mind aligned and minimising build up of tension and stress. And Calming and Relaxing breathworks for winding down and easing into a restful state.
Breathwork can be done in as little as 5 to 10 minutes, and we highly recommend that you start your day by doing so. Checking in with your intention and sense of self, before starting your day.
We have created a series of breathworks that you can use as part of your daily routine.
