Breathwork & Tantra Breathwork

Meditation through breath & conscious breathing

Introduction: What is breathwork?

TOPIC: breathwork, breathing exercises, breathing techniques, meditative breaths

Breathwork is a technique that enables you to change your state of mind and release emotional blocks by using the breath.

It is a form of bodywork that has been in use for over 3,000 years. It was originally developed by the ancient Egyptians and Greeks. Breathwork techniques are still used in many cultures all around the world, but it has only become popular in the West since the late 1960s.

Breathwork is also sometimes called “pranayama” or “conscious breathing”, which refers to its ability to calm and restore balance within your body.

 

How to prepare for a breathwork session?

TOPIC: breathwork preparation, breath-related meditation, how to do meditation

Breathwork sessions can be a powerful tool for self-exploration and healing. They are also a great way to prepare for meditation, yoga, or any other spiritual or physical practice.

The best way to prepare for a breathwork session is by preparing the environment and your mind. A good suggestion is to have soft music playing in the background, dim the lights, and wear loose comfortable clothing. Most breathing sessions are done sitting or laying down.

It’s also important to choose the appropriate time for the kind of breathwork you are going to do. Many techniques are recommended to be done in the morning right after waking up, But some techniques are helpful at other daytime or just right before you want to start a meditation or practice.
Generally it’s advised to be with an empty stomach while doing breathwork. If you’re not doing it in the morning, simply wait around 2 hours after your last meal. 
On the other hand, if you are going to do a longer and deeper session, make sure you are not going to be too hungry, as hunger can make it difficult to focus on breathing or get into a meditative state of mind.

Besides these general recommendations, we would like to recall that there are several types of breathwork exercises, and the most simple ones can be done anywhere you are – at home, at work or even while traveling!

 

What are the benefits of practicing breathwork?

TOPIC: benefits of breathwork, mind-body connection through breath

Breathwork can help people to release stress, improve their mood, and reduce anxiety. Some people also use it as a form of self-care when they are going through difficult life events. 

Each breathwork technique may differ, but generally following is recommended:

Inhalation: The in-breath should be deep and slow, with the stomach expanding fully with each breath.

Exhalation: The out-breath should be long and slow, emptying the lungs completely for maximum relaxation.

Concentration: Concentrate on your breathing at all times during the exercise, not letting your thoughts wander off elsewhere into the past or future, letting go of any noise or other happening around you. For some people, this is easy, for others it takes time to practice. But the more focused you are while doing breathwork, the more effective it will be.

Breathwork is a therapeutic technique that uses breathing techniques to achieve physical and mental relaxation.

Breathwork is also used for self-discovery through meditation.

All in all, breathwork benefits will be felt by the person doing the practice, as well as in the relationship with people surrounding them. So, it is a great technique that ultimately can also help  couple problems.

 

What are the risks of breathwork?

Breathwork uses several types of techniques, some of them doing rapid breathing for a certain amount of time.

Specially if you are new to it, the more challenging techniques might have some risks such as hyperventilation, dizziness, fainting, and even passing out. The best way to avoid these risks is to start slowly with easier techniques and always listening to your body. Make sure you have proper instruction before doing the exercises.
