Relieve Stress. Improve Sleep. Boost Digestion. Balance Energy.
You can go for weeks without food, days without water, but only a few minutes without breathing. Breathing has such an immediate impact on your mind and body that even the act of inhaling vs. exhaling affects your nervous system differently. It’s common to train in diet, exercise, and even hydration, but almost no one trains their breath. This is a huge missed opportunity for health-seekers.
Zen breathing is a safe and natural way to quickly affect your nervous system. Its origins are yoga breathing exercises - without the chanting, incense, gurus, or Oms - to simply affect you in one of three ways: parasympathetic, sympathetic, or balancing response. This is science-based breathing and accessible to everyone.
Most of us are stuck on autopilot, and we're getting bounced around by our environment leaving us feeling wired but tired, imbalanced, and frazzled. Zen breathing offers many of the same benefits as meditation, but it's easier to learn, can be practiced anywhere, and the results are very predictable.
Did you know…
»»» Breathing can change your blood PH (acid/alkaline) in minutes. No food, exercise, or medication acts as quickly.
»»» You can often determine your dominant nervous system state simply by placing your finger underneath your nostrils and exhaling.
»»» Reduced rate breathing can stimulate a rest and digest, parasympathetic nervous system state to help with sleep, stress, and anxiety.
»»» Rapid, pulsed breathing stimulates a sympathetic nervous system response to increase energy, prepare for exercise, or boost the body’s natural defenses.
»»» Diaphragmatic breathing massages the Vagus Nerve and reduces heart rate, lowers blood pressure, and reduces stress.
»»» Severe respiratory conditions like asthma can be successfully managed by increasing CO2 levels in the blood.
»»» Breathing can help reduce the fear of public speaking, improve digestion, reduce insomnia, lower stress, anxiety, and overwhelm.
You'll learn simple ways to help modify unhealthy breathing habits and how to naturally take control of your physical and mental wellbeing. The techniques are accessible to all students, regardless of age or health status. And, unlike other methods, you'll see and feel results immediately!
