We all know what it feels like to be a little out of breath…
when our attention is suddenly drawn to the need for air!
It is possible to go through life without ever paying attention to the breath.
But what if I told you that breath is the key to unlocking the full potential of your mind and body?
Learning how to breathe with intention can help to:
- energize the body
- remove toxins
- relieve stress
- reset the nervous system
- improve sleep
- support digestion
- optimize workouts
- increase concentration
- strengthen abdominal muscles
In addition to all this, mindful breathing can be a transformative spiritual practice. There is a reason almost every religion refers to the breathe with reverence – breathe is the source of our human life!
