Why is Breath Important?

Simple. Breathe more deeply, take in more oxygen, have better health.

You know how to breathe; it occurs automatically, spontaneously, and naturally. Most of the time that you spend breathing you are not aware of the quality of your breath, the intake or exhale. So it may seem strange to think about being taught how to breathe.

But the truth is, you can develop unhealthy breathing habits without ever being aware of it. Your breath pattern, over time, is the product of life situations and learned behaviors. A shallow breath can promote dis-ease, accelerate aging, and be the greatest contributor to fatigue.

So, how could life be different if you practiced deep, full breathing?

Deep breathing requires that you use your diaphragm and intercostal muscles providing a gentle but vital internal massage. This massage releases trapped emotions, relieves common ailments, and also helps you become more grounded, creative and peaceful.

By exercising a deep, full breath you can experience incredible amounts of energy, vitality, and clarity. Breath is not only the key to your biology but also to your spiritual nature. With a full breath you can thrive; and combined with awareness, you awaken. Breath is the vehicle for the subtle life force to enliven and heal the body.
