Transformational Breath~~~Most people are not aware they don't breathe to their full capacity, which limitstheir health, energy, and quality of life.
Transformational Breath fully opens up the respiratory system. Subconscious suppressed emotions are the cause of many of our unwanted experiences. We unknowingly restrict our breathing in an attempt to block unwanted feelings of fear, anger and grief.
Transformational breath teaches us how to consciously open the breath fully which allows unconsciously held negative emotion to release and integrate resulting in greater present moment awareness.
There are many benefits people realize through the practice of Transformational Breath. These benefits include improved physical health, cleared emotional wounds and enhanced mental capabilities. Many have also found a stronger connection to spirit while cultivating a greater awareness of the breath and self. Your life can open up and become more fulfilling through the practice of Transformational Breath.
