My first experience with the power of breath was when i was in labour with my second child.
I was so determined that this labour would be very different to my first.
I did a little bit of research and reading on how to use breath and how it can help with pain, essentially labour pain.
So the day arrived and I put into practise what I had learnt.
It helped me tremendously throughout my 8 hour labour and i was totally hooked.
When I began the study of the human body I researched breath and the power it holds. It totally fascinated me.
Applying it to my coaching was an absolute no brainer and a delight as I read on my clients faces the power and ease with which it works in so many different ways.
I then did more study on the whats, whys and hows to cement my skills into more action.
Breath combined with the core system is a very powerful tool and I have numerous case studies to prove it’s effectiveness.
-Better pelvic floor control
-Better lung capacity
-Stronger lifts within training
-Better immune function
-Better pain management
-Better overall quality of life
Connecting the mind and body with the breath creates a fantastic feedback loop that gives the individual power and skill to help them in their day to day lives.
Mayoclinic.org writes “Many studies have found that deep breathing helps balance the autonomic nervous system. This may help ease symptoms of stress related disorders and mental health conditions such as anxiety, general stress, depression and post traumatic stress disorder.”
How have you used the power of breath in your life?
