Sometimes the biggest complexities have the simplest answers.

A breathing exercise can quickly transform your entire mental and physical state. When we’re feeling stressed, anxious or overwhelmed we’re living in our heads. Our thoughts are just one peice of makes up you. You have a whole body that’s filled with life and intelligence!

Your body knows how to be, how to release, and how to move forward. All we have to do is learn how to be IN and WITH our bodies. And that starts with our breath.

Our breath is our life force. It energizes us, heals us, and brings us out of our heads and into the physical world. You come into this world with your first breath and you leave it with your last; it’s where your spirit meets your body.

How you breathe affects your state of mind and entire nervous system. When we’re stressed and overthinking we breathe shallow and from our chest. When we’re grounded and relaxed, we breath deeply from our bellies. A simple breathing exercise can take you out of ‘fight or flight’ and into ‘rest and digest’ by calming the mind and activating the parasympathetic nervous system, where your body can properly digest food and restore itself.

You can access deep states of awareness through a breathing exercise much faster than you can with meditation alone. And focused breathing in itself IS a meditation. It’s a way of clearing your thoughts and being in the present moment, where life happens.

The video below will show you how to:

  • Fall asleep more easily and restfully.
  • Meditate easier and access deeper awareness and restoration.
  • Feel good in your body.
  • Improve your digestion.
  • Quiet your thoughts.
  • Practice daily to strengthen your mental immune system from anxiety, stress, and overwhelm.
