Feels rather apt to be featured today on ‘BLUE MONDAY’ by Pysclelondon. I discuss the benefits of Transformational Breath and how we can empower ourselves by breathing through feelings of anxiety, alleviate depression and feel more focussed and positive. Onwards and inwards.

Tell us about yourself and what makes you tick?

I am an author, Transformational Breath coach and founder of www.breathingtree.co.uk What makes me tick is breathwork and I just love sharing this cutting edge technique. The most important thing in life is to breathe – after all, we live to breathe and we breathe to live. We cannot exist without it. It’s the first thing we do when we make our entrance into the world and it is the last thing we do when we exit so we may as well have a good relationship with the way we breathe. How we breathe is indicative to how we feel about life.

For our readers, who might not (yet!) have heard of this type of therapy, what is transformational breathing?

This self healing technique helps us to let go of unhealthy patterns and allow the breath to flow in the way we can in life. Breath is our anchor and although we cannot always control what is happening around us it can help us to feel balanced, centered and calm. When we open our breath and use our respiratory system to its’ full capacity we can let go of any blockages, emotional past drama and trauma we are holding onto in our body. This helps our general wellbeing on a mental, emotional, physical and spiritual level. As we are all unique we all have our own unique breathing pattern, a bit like our thumb print. Our breath pattern shows our story and the way we perceive the world around us. Some of us are chest breathers whilst others are belly breathers. When you see a baby breathing you will notice that they are breathing in their belly, midsection and chest. This is not about learning new tricks but getting the body to remember to breathe in this way.
