Breathe For Healing. Breathe For Energy. Breathe For Freedom.
What Is Breathwork?
Breathwork is a powerful way to access your body’s innate intelligence to heal itself. Breathwork, the conscious awareness of your breath, is a practice that is thousands of years old, and while there are many variations, styles and names, all types of breathwork offer the chance for personal transformation through improved mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. Our breath, or prana, is literally what keeps us alive, and yet, so often, we go through the day chronically shallow breathing, denying ourselves our full life force which often keeping us in a state of anxiety, or fight or flight. Breathwork, or the process of deep rhythmic breathing, moves us out of fight or flight and into the parasympathetic nervous system. It is said that how we breathe is how we live, and so to live life to its fullest, we believe we should breathe to our fullest. And that’s where a breathwork practice comes in. Because breathwork literally raises our energy (our frequency) it’s one of the key practices we use at Balanced Bear Nutrition to create emotional, mental, physical and spiritual well-being and resilience. Breathwork bridges ancient wisdom with modern science to help you unlock your full potential. Come breathe with us at Balanced Bear Nutrition and begin to experience firsthand the healing power of the breath.
THE BENEFITS OF BREATHING TOGETHER
Regularly practicing Breathwork has a multitude of proven benefits. Here are just a few to take note of...
REDUCES STRESS, ANXIETY AND GRIEF, DEPRESSION AND ANGER
Breathwork offers a very safe way to address stress, anxiety, grief, depression and anger head on so that our moods don’t start to take over our personal and professional lives. How we breathe often indicates how we feel. In the way shallow rapid breaths make us anxious and tired, long deep breaths that originate in the abdomen can help us feel calm, centered, grounded and energized.
INCREASE YOUR ENERGY LEVELS AND BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
Breathwork improves oxygen capacity in the blood which leads to overall improved energy levels and stronger stamina. The amount of oxygen that we inhale through our breathing directly influences the amount of energy that is released into our cells. With a daily breathwork practice you can begin to learn to consciously control your energy levels and your immune system.
INCREASE SELF-AWARENESS, PRESENCE, HAPPINESS AND JOY
Breathwork creates an experience of deep presence and self-awareness by giving yourself the space to go within, where time almost ceases to exist. In this state of being in the present moment, in the now, no longer bound by the past or the future, people often describe feelings of happiness and joy wash over them, as they experiences a shift in consciousness.
When your body is vibrating during breathwork and you are fully in the experience, it is hard not to feel that deeper connection with yourself. Simply by fostering a deeper relationship with yourself, you are beginning the process of self-love. And while increased self-love is hard to measure scientifically, it is one of the most direct felt experiences of breathwork.
The deep breathing we practice in breathwork helps to calm the nervous system, which in turn reduces the effects of stimulants and calms the stress, allowing you to get a better night’s sleep. Additionally, quieting the mind, which breathwork does so well, allows you to fall asleep faster and sleep more deeply.
RELEASE TRAUMA AND FEAR STUCK IN THE BODY
Unprocessed negative emotions, fear and trauma can get trapped and stored in the body and become energetic blocks that often take a physical toll on the body. Breathwork is an incredibly powerful tool to help unblock, unravel and release fear, traumas, limiting beliefs and negative emotions.
HELP REDUCE PAIN
What breathwork does so effortlessly is to reconnect you with your body, which actually helps you jumpstart the healing process. Additionally breathing deeply causes the body to release endorphins, which reduces sensitivity to pain and boosts pleasure, resulting in a feeling of well-being.
RELEASE TOXINS FROM THE BODY
Deep breathing helps detoxify your body, boosts your lung efficiency and promotes a healthy heart. You are also strengthening your lungs, which directly affects your toxin release. Additionally, by breathing deeply more often, you’re able to expel the toxins more effectively.
Breathwork can help the digestive process by stimulating and increasing blood flow throughout the digestive track and also improving intestinal activity. Breathwork also reduces the uncomfortable symptoms of bloating and gas.
EXPLORE ALTERED STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS, CONSCIOUSLY
Breathwork creates a powerful space for self-exploration, spiritual awakening and a deeper connection to yourself, others and the universe. Breathwork also impacts the way our consciousness and subconscious minds interact, allowing our creativity to be accessed in new and deeper ways.
