“Your Breathe is your best friend for Life” Sophia Roy Choudhury
Our breathe is our closest friend from the beginning of life till our last day on earth. Breathing is a subconscious process which you can influence consciously. When you influence the breath, you instantly influence your state of being and vice versa. Breathe to relax, breathe to energize, breathe for change, breathe to heal – there are many ways to breathe.
Although we take around 80% of our energy from oxygen, we don’t know much about breathing. Besides the physical process of keeping alive there is the movement of the breath, or flow, that can ‘melt’ or release tensions, stress & energy blocks in the body. The way you breathe tells a lot about the way you live your life.
Breath work is “the art and science of using breath awareness and breathing exercises for health, growth, and change in body, mind, and spirit.”
Breath work is a powerful approach to self-exploration and healing that integrates insights from modern consciousness research, anthropology, various depth psychologies, transpersonal psychology, Eastern spiritual practices, and mystical traditions of the world.
Breath work is a safe and gentle process that encourages an individual to experience, express and release his/ her emotions. It uses the breath to facilitate vital change and transformation that lasts.
The Breath work process is based on a simple breathing exercise which consists of connecting the inhale and the exhale with no pauses between the two.
