The Breath of Life

Proper breathing has the ability to transform our health, our pain levels, our mood and our lives. This is why we include breathing techniques and a portion of our client workouts to Elite Breathwork. Here’s a look at what the science shows us and why we should practice proper breathing.

Humans average between 17,000-30,000 breaths each day. As a common body function, we may takefor granted the power that proper breathing has over our entire body.

Deliberate and controlled breathing can transform your life. It can change the way you think and process emotions, how your muscles work, how often you get sick, and influence your chances of  developing some chronic diseases.

Science and research shows us that proper breathing supports all of our body’s natural abilities to regulate and heal.
