Cherish your breath!
Thich Nhat Hanh
Breathing exercises are one of the simplest and most effective ways to affect psychological and physiological health. At Core Naturopathics we recognise the importance of breath control in your overall treatment plan, as a tool you can access anytime and anywhere. Understanding some simple breathing techniques helps keep YOU in control of your emotional and mental wellbeing and overall health. Returning to the clinic after setting up her own yoga studio The Yoga Hive, in Wollongong’s CBD, Bec Anderson is well qualified to share her knowledge of breath work for health and wellbeing with you.
The importance of breath was recognised thousands of years ago as a means to develop inner balance and awareness, and stay connected with the essence of who you are. As our most vital life force feeding every cell of our bodies, breathing is a foundation to good health and wellbeing. Breathing exercises can help –
- improve sleep quality
- aid immune and lung function
- relax muscles and reduce physical and mental tension
- give space to an overworked mind
- help control your nervous system responses and soothe overworked adrenals
- reduce anxiety and improve your ability to stay emotionally calm and in control
As part of your treatment plan at the clinic, you can look forward to learning simple and safe breathing exercises to improve your health and wellbeing. If you are interested in attending private or group breathing classes here at the clinic please let us know and we can book you in.
