Breathwork is the conscious application of breath awareness and breathing techniques as tool for self-awareness, healing and transformation. It supports the realignment in the body-mind system and powerfully activates the body’s self-healing response through heart coherence.

Dysfunctional breathing habits develop over time due to chronic stress, suppression of emotion, physical and emotional trauma and physical tension patterns in the body. These unconscious habits in turn exacerbates the stress response even more and soon the body becomes a breeding ground for illness.
