“Healthy breathing is light, quiet, effortless and soft. Breaths are through the nose, diaphragmatic, rhythmic, and gently paused on the exhale.”

Patrick G McKeown, Oxygen Advantage

The Breath influences the physical, emotional and spiritual elements of the human experience – and these are all intimately connected with our health and well-being.

Step 1. Exploring Objectives

There are many reasons why people seek to explore breathwork ranging from physical healing from chronic health conditions to optimising physical performance, as well as exploring spirituality and ‘altered states of consciousness’. Read my blog The Ultimate Guide To Breathwork if you are new to this topic.

Step 2. Practice

A range of techniques can be considered based on your reasons for seeking support. I am an Oxygen Advantage certified instructor and a Transformational Breath Facilitator Intern.

Step 3. Progress

Breathwork is no different to any other form of self-care. It requires practice, and, improvement isn’t linear. Often people experience tremendous growth or improvement in the short term and then reach a plateau. Continued practice is paramount for the new breathing to advance and take root.
