Join Carter Miles in this introductory breathwork practice for improved health and emotional wellbeing.
If you haven’t experienced the power of breathwork yet, you are in for a treat. This 25-minute practice will guide you through a few simple breathing techniques which will help you get a feel for how breathwork works.
The two reasons why I practice & teach breathing… One, for a healthy body and Two, for a healthy mind.
The way that we breathe affects how well oxygen (our primary source of energy) is delivered to the cells. Enhancing or optimizing the circulation and delivery of oxygen is a vitally important part of health maintenance and of healing. It is easily possible to increase the oxygen delivery within our cells 50-100% which means much more available energy for the body to perform it’s life sustaining functions and much more available energy for us to play, learn, explore and live.
The way that we breathe also affects how our nervous system behaves (I’m calling this the mind). Keeping a light, steady and calm breath creates a similar experience in the mind. The nervous systems calm down, we shift out of Sympathetic (fight or flight) and into Parasympathetic (rest, digest & restore), which is also a necessary part of health. No organism can live long or well in Sympathetic activation, but so many of us are living with much sympathetic dominance, which leads to all sorts of stress-related issues, diseases and psychological disorders.
