For a Better You...
What if you had a tool available that could alter your state in minutes. Would you use it?
What if I said you already are? Breath is integral to life. It is the first thing we do and the last thing we do as humans. but we often take our breath for granted and a large proportion of the population actually breath poorly putting more stress on their Autonomic Nervous System and in some cases keeping them in an anxious (Fight or Flight) State.
The power of the breath is astonishing. Numerous scientific studies have been carried out which link the breath to our state of mind - It can calm you down when you feel stressed and it can hype you up when you need a pick me up. It can relax and rejuvinate you when you need some down-time and it can help you get out of trouble fast. It can literally take you to another place - allowing emotions to flow, insights to be learned and allowing you to enter altered states of consciousness.
“Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts. Whenever your mind becomes scattered, use your breath as the means to take hold of your mind again”
- Thich Nhat Hanh
The way we breathe impacts every area of our lives, whether we are conscious of it or not. It influences your exercise performance, your health, your sleep, recovery, weight loss, posture, cognition, mental state and even the way you grow and age.
At A Better You, we offer a full breathing evaluation (Breath Check) and options for breath retraining, functional breathing, breathing for sports performance and Breakthrough Breathwork.
