Your breath is always there. All day long, every day of your life. But do you ever stop to think about the way you breathe?
Your breathing doesn’t just keep you alive. It is a powerful tool to heal your body, find your focus, or simply unwind. Think of it as your own dose of therapy, just in your back pocket. Or even better: inside yourself.

Breathwork starts with your experiences and emotions
Everyone is constantly experiencing things. Pleasant and unpleasant experiences, which also create emotions and feelings. Most people enjoy sharing feelings of joy, pride and love with anyone who wants to hear, while emotions like fear, sadness or anger tend to be shown less often.
Social media are the perfect example of this. We are only too happy to share pictures of our ‘fantastic lives’ when things are going our way, while tears, anxiety and anger often remain behind the scenes.
“Is that a problem?”, we can hear you wonder. We understand that it takes a lot of courage to show others the most vulnerable part of yourself. Especially on social media. But when emotions (especially the negative ones) are pushed away or suppressed, they get stuck in your body, where they cause complaints such as stress, headaches, stomach aches, insomnia, anxiety and so on. And that is the real problem here.
When you struggle with emotions that have become stuck in your body, breathwork can come in handy Breathwork is the umbrella term for everything that has to do with or focuses on your breathing. It has been used for centuries to release emotional blockages and restore the free flow of your energy.
The great thing is that breathwork acts on different levels of your body.
- On a physical level by reducing tension in your body.
- On an emotional level by releasing your emotions.
- Mentally by calming your mind.
- And on a spiritual level by connecting with your inner self and restoring your energy balance.
Breathwork is ideal if you are struggling with complaints like stress, anxiety, panic attacks, fatigue, sleep problems, burnout, depression, … etc.
