A lot of us don’t breath properly and this is due to posture, stress, emotional blockages and not breathing deep enough.

This is called thoracic or chest breathing. It can upset the balance in the oxygen and carbon dioxide levels in the body, adding to muscle tension, increased heart rate, dizziness and other physical sensations. This sends out a stress signal and can contribute to anxiety and panic attacks.

"Breath work sessions make a huge difference to help move through anxiety and stress, for me it was a game changer and for my clients!"
Breathing helps to reduce amygdala activity, which is a part of the brain that attaches emotions to responses and how we process feelings of fear, and activates the fight or flight response.
Signals the nervous system to calm down as our vagus nerve is connected to the diaphragm. A lot of us have an overactive nervous system which is linked to so many diseases.
Breathwork is an effective way to shift your brainwaves from beta to alpha and even theta, thereby decreasing negative thought patterns, stress and depression levels.
Breathing deeply and bringing more oxygen to the body activates the parasympathetic nervous system which is our rest and digest system and restores our body to a calm and relaxed state.
We can take in more carbon dioxide which helps synchronise your heartbeat and breathing, and actually low levels of carbon dioxide can cause hyperventilation, breathing helps to balance out levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide.
Breathing helps to relax the muscles which tense up when anxious.
Gives our adrenal glands a break from releasing adrenaline which stimulates heart rate, dilates blood vessels and air passages.
Focusing on breathing is the best way to switch us from being in our head and letting our thoughts run the show, to the present moment.
When we do longer sessions we are able access parts of our subconscious where we hold these anxious thoughts, triggers, trauma and release them.
We can move energy around our body and release any stuck emotions and trauma.
The reason these get stuck is because of emotional memory, and are chemically and electrically transmitted throughout the entire body and stored in cells as unexpressed emotions. These can be stored and built up from childhood.

"The journey she took me on during the breath-work session was so special to me. She held a safe space for me to completely open up and release deep emotional blockages. I felt a complete sense of peace and a shift in my energy after this. I think honestly that’s what helped me the most."
