Rebecca features in the Telegraph recently, where they explore how tracking your breath can help you achieve a healthier lifestyle. Here’s an excerpt:
“The practice of breathwork is, simply put, breathing exercises that allow you to manipulate the rhythm, depth and rate of your breath with intention and purpose,” says Rebecca Dennis, author and founder of Breathing Tree.
It stimulates your parasympathetic nervous system, she adds, “which allows your body to rest and digest, slow the heart rate, lower blood pressure and respiratory rate and divert blood supply towards the digestive and reproductive systems.”
Although we’re often unable to change what’s happening around us, becoming aware of the way we breathe allows us to remain in control of our reaction to those situations,” says Rebecca.
