There is a direct link between Brain Function and Breathing.
The way you breathe can influence the way your brain works.
Ultimately, changing your breathing can change neural circuits, which can alter brain function. This means that you have the power to change how your body works simply by changing your breath.
Different breathing techniques can be used for different purposes, depending on what you’re trying to achieve.
Inhalation-based practices are often used for things like relaxation or stress relief, while exhalation-based practices may be more beneficial for things like cardiovascular health or asthma relief.
Breath holds and other techniques may be useful for things like meditation or mindfulness. The Buteyko method and Wim Hof breathing are two specific techniques that have been shown to be particularly effective for certain health conditions.
The best breathing technique is the one that suits you and your body. Boundless Breath utilizes different techniques to see what works best for each individual.
