Breathing

Breathing
It’s not something we generally think about. We lump it in the category of digestion or heartbeat, it’s just there. But when it’s not there we are dead! So it holds an incredible amount of power for us and it is something we CAN control, unlike digestion or heartbeat. So the way we are breathing affects the quality of how we are living. We all remember a time we were so stressed or anxiety ridden that we felt like it was hard to breathe. Deep body centered breathing is a powerful tool we can learn to use to manage our stress, gain deeper insights into ourselves and expand our awareness. It is the go to tool for presence practices and mindfulness. When we center our awareness on our breath the story of what our bodies are telling us unfolds. We learn a new means of communication with our physicality. We come down out of the incessant craziness of our minds and begin to truly inhabit our bodies, making us feel whole and grounded. This awareness is our ticket to change.
