The Benefits of Breathwork for Your Coaching or Therapy Business
Breathwork is a powerful transformational tool that can be used for personal healing, growth, and development. It benefits both clients and facilitators alike, allowing them to access deeper states of awareness, connection, and understanding.
In this blog post, we will explore the benefits of breathwork for your coaching or therapy business – from how it differs from other approaches to how you can use it with clients, plus tips on incorporating breathwork into your practice.
By offering breathwork, you’ll be able to provide an even more enriching experience for your clients while also deepening the impact of your own work. Read on to discover the powerful benefits of breathwork and why you should start using it with your clients!
First Up… Let’s Explore How Breathwork is Different From Other Transformational Tools
To understand how breathwork is different from other healing modalities, we have to understand the three energetic bodies: mental, emotional, and intuitive.
The mental body: is the land of cognitive abilities, thought patterns, and beliefs that we use to make sense of our day-to-day lives. It’s the land of hypervigilance and overthinking, which can be quite anxiety provoking if not managed well. Experiencing reality through this energetic body can feel like we are “too in our heads” and are constantly overdoing it in a state of “go-go-go-go-go-go.”
The emotional body: is the land of sensations and contractions. It holds our emotions, from joy to shame and everything in between.
The intuitive body: is the place of clarity, power, strength, and knowing. It’s where our deep wisdom lies. The intuitive body is accessed through the body’s natural intelligence. But to access that intelligence, we need to be able to be present and release the mental cognitive hook we have on reality. That’s where breathwork comes in.
Breathwork is unique because it allows us to tap into our bodies in a way that other modalities can’t. It helps us to become aware of what’s going on in the mental, emotional, and intuitive bodies simultaneously.
Other modalities like Talk Therapy, CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), and Mindset Coaching only focus on the mental body, which is incredibly important for problem-solving, but not so great for emotional healing and clarity because we can’t think our way into “feeling better”… we need to become better feelers.
And that’s exactly what breathwork allows us to do. Breathwork helps us get out of our heads, release emotions holding us back, and drop deeper into our intuitive body, where our bodies can become the vessel for transformation, and we get out of our own way and allow it to do the healing.
The Benefits of Breathwork for Your Clients
As mentioned, breathwork is a powerful modality that can help your clients unlock a deeper level of understanding and connection to their bodies.
With breathwork, your clients can access the subconscious patterns and stories that are holding them back and release those patterns so that they can start living the life of their dreams.
Breathwork also helps clients build emotional intelligence, which is important for regulating their emotions and developing empathy. And breathwork can even help with physical healing – it helps to release tension and tightness in the body, increase lung capacity, improve circulation, and boost your metabolism.
The benefits of breathwork can also support issues like:
– Stress and anxiety
– Low self-esteem
– Physical pain
– Sleep issues
– Intimacy & relationship challenges
Benefits of Breathwork for You as a Facilitator
For you, the benefits of breathwork are twofold. First, it gives you another powerful tool for helping your clients get lasting results.
Second, a personal breathwork practice can help YOU replenish and recharge energetically. Since breathwork helps you to access the intuitive body, it can help you become more aware of your own intuition, which can be invaluable when it comes to making decisions in your business.
Breathwork also helps to increase your energy and vitality, which can be beneficial if you’re feeling overwhelmed and stressed.
And finally, breathwork can help to improve your connection with yourself. You’ll gain a better understanding of what your body needs and how to honor it so that you can be a better facilitator for your clients.
The Benefits of Breathwork for Your Business
By incorporating breathwork into your coaching or therapy practice, you can offer a holistic approach to transformation that few other practitioners are. This helps you stand out from the crowd, and you’ll benefit from the increased visibility of your business as you become known for something unique.
Also, breathwork is unique as it offers your clients an even deeper level of healing. As you help your clients get deeper, lasting results, the benefits of this work will speak for themselves, and they’ll be much more likely to recommend your services to others, which will help you to attract more aligned clients.
In addition, breathwork can be a great upsell or add-on to your existing coaching or therapy. You can offer additional benefits like private breathwork sessions, workshops, retreats, or even online breathwork courses to serve more people.
You’ll also be able to charge higher rates for your services because breathwork is such a powerful and effective modality. And because it’s so effective, you’ll be able to help people transform more quickly, giving you more time to take on new clients and grow your business (or enjoy more spaciousness in your calendar!)
How You Can Use Breathwork With Clients
There are a few different ways to use breathwork with your clients, which include both 1:1 or group settings, both online and in-person.
For 1:1 breathwork sessions, you can create a private space for your clients to explore their inner landscape through the power of breathwork and guided visualization. You can also offer group breathwork sessions at Yoga studios, retreats, or events. Many of our students have even gone on to teach breathwork in corporate settings as part of employee wellness initiatives.
If you work virtually, you can offer online breathwork courses, workshops, or membership sites where you can facilitate from the comfort of your home. This is a great way to reach people from all over the world and serve more people than ever before.
