How to simply (and quickly)... pause and be more present to life
'Throughout history, breath has often been associated with the idea of a life force or spirit … the Latin word “spiritus” means breath. The Sanskrit word “pranayama” comes from the words “prana” (life energy) and “ayama” (to extend or draw out).
Practicing breathwork is inherently spiritual
When you cultivate a relationship with your breath, you simultaneously cultivate a relationship with your spirit. They are one and the same. Your spirit is your breath, and your breath is your spirit.
Every time you bring awareness to your breath, you are learning to become present and grounded in your body.
Being embodied in this way is essential to spiritual development
When we learn to inhabit our bodies with gentleness, attunement and compassion, we are able to access connection with ourselves, others, and our sense of purpose
In a culture where we are constantly bombarded with messages that we are projects that need fixing and upgrading, cultivating a breathwork practice is an act of radical self-care.
It helps us quit fighting ourselves and teaches us to tend to our bodies and minds with care and love'.
