When we feel stress our bodies enter ‘fight or flight mode, and our bodies and minds become disconnected from one another. We can also start to experience digestive issues and a feeling of exhaustion.

Breathing Practices are an important part of many cultural traditions, such as Yoga and Buddhist meditation. Western psychology has also started to recognise the effectiveness of breathing practices as a way for individuals to tap into the connection between their mind and body. Breathing Practices involve deep and mindful breathing where you control the timing and frequency of your inhales and exhales, and sometimes retain the breath. In our daily lives it is easy to forget about our breath, and allow it to become shallow or restricted. Deep breathing into the belly activates the diaphragm, which massages the organs beneath it and helps to improve your digestion. Deep breathing can also help to increase your lung capacity. Breathing practices can be used to energize and detox, or to relax the body and mind. Some examples of breathing practices include Nadi Shodhana (alternate nostril breathing), Sama Vritti (equal breathing), and Kapalabhati (passive inhalation and active exhalation).

After a Breathing Practice, you can expect to feel a renewed sense of balance and connection between body and mind. You will recognise the breath as your best friend, and know that it is there for you to come back to at any time. The calming effects of the practice will also allow you to enter ‘rest and digest mode which enables the body to heal and repair.
