I recently experienced several forms of therapeutic breathwork when I was in Encinitas, CA. Out of the 3 styles of breathwork I tried, I fell in love with a type of breathwork known as SOMA.
I’m pleased to be joined by SOMA Master Instructor, Steven Whitney as he shares what SOMA Breath is and the health benefits associated with this technique.
Your breath is a powerful healing tool and most of us are not breathing correctly.
One of the main goals of SOMA Breath is to correct your breathing so that your normal rate of breathing at rest is 5-6 breaths per minute.
On average people breathe 10+ breaths per minute. Very sick or highly stressed people breathe even more than that!
Slowing your breath can help protect against disease, balance your emotions, and help you be more in flow state.
Here are some major benefits of a therapeutic breathwork practice:
- More efficient at using oxygen
- Better tolerance for carbon dioxide
- Increased mind-body connection
- Increased cardiovascular health: more stamina, endurance, better fitness
- Reduce inflammation
- Balance your nervous system
- Deep state of meditation
- Mind reprogramming and self hypnosis: install new beliefs and become your best self effortlessly
- Mental and physical resilience
- Calmer, clearer mind: Better judgement and decision making
- Manage stress
- Awaken to your soul’s purpose and authentic self
- Increased confidence and self esteem
- Emotional processing and release
