Breathwork training helps you learn techniques for promoting health and wellness by activating your clients’ innate self-healing abilities. In addition to helping them feel calm and grounded, breathwork can also help your clients release subconscious patterns that are holding them back, develop emotional intelligence, and facilitate physical healing.

It can strengthen the mind-body connection and enhance other holistic practices like meditation, yoga, mindfulness, and acupuncture. In particular, some types of breathwork like the 4-7-8 breathing method and alternate nostril breathing help to balance the autonomic nervous system, which can improve mental clarity and reduce stress. Breathwork can also be used to improve athletic performance by facilitating optimal oxygen utilization and synchronizing movement with breath.

During a session, you’ll relax and breathe using what’s known as conscious connected circular breathing—a process that involves taking full, deep breaths that are continuous with no space or retention between them. This can bring up physical or emotional responses that may include tingling, buzzing, warming, cooling, or tightness in specific areas of the body. It’s also common to experience feelings of openness, love, peace, gratitude, communication, and clarity during a breathwork session. In addition, a holotropic breathwork session can help you receive insights or downloads about your life and personal growth.

Many people experience positive side effects from breathwork, such as increased energy, better sleep, and a reduction in anxiety and stress. However, it’s important to note that if you’re new to breathwork, these symptoms may not manifest right away.
