From the time we draw our first breath upon entering this world until we take our last breath, the oscillation of inhale and exhale sets up the rhythmic pattern to which all of our body operates and depends on. When thinking of our health, very few people think, “oh, let me work on or with my breath,” yet this essential part of our existence dictates how everything else runs in the body.
Learning to control and manipulate the breath is one of the easiest and quickest ways to positively impact our health. We can reduce stress, lower anxiety, reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure and heart rate, increase respiratory function, oxygenate the blood, balance the energy in the body and rejuvenate the nervous system all through control of the breath.
