Breathwork enables you to take better care of yourself by releasing old beliefs and behaviors that are stuck in your body and no longer serve you.
When we saturate our bodies with oxygen, it clears traumatic emotions from our sympathetic nervous system and reduces physical stress stored in our deep tissue.
By doing these breathing techniques, you will remove carbon dioxide from the body and bringing a higher pH temporarily—alkalinity.
If we lower the carbon dioxide in the body, we can hold our breath longer. It's all about the technique. The energy in your brain is disconnected from the activity of the neocortex, and it will move to the limbic system and the brain stem while doing this specific breathwork.
The limbic network of the brain, which is made up of the amygdala, hippocampus, & hypothalamus, is where we store emotion and memory.
After just 7 minutes of breathwork, we begin to slow our brain waves down and generate theta brain waves, which activate deeper parts of the subconscious mind to move closer to the conscious experience. You are tapping into your limbic brain, which will allow you to release stored up emotions from your past. This allows you to free yourself and create space for a new you.
