With roots in Eastern medicine, “breathwork” is a modern term for a practice with ancient origins. Learning to manipulate or control the breath is a therapeutic method to deepen self-awareness, healing, and altered states of consciousness. Since its ancient origins, western adaptations of yoga have helped introduce and popularize this powerful healing tool to our modern world. It can be practiced solo, with a guiding practitioner, or in a group setting. Best of all? Time is not an issue here; sessions can last for hours or just a few priceless moments.
No matter the style, its benefits range from a clearer sense of purpose to a more balanced connection to our emotions. Want to hop on the breathwork bandwagon, but don’t know where to get started? We’ve curated a few of our favorite resources and guides to tap into the ritual.
