EP 159: SOLO JAM SESSION: BREATHWORK Q&A – ALL YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

For so many people, breathwork is such a new topic and healing modality to be explored. That brings a lot of questions and curiosity to so today on the podcast I did something a little different. I grabbed all of the questions you guys asked me on Instagram to do a Q & A session all about breathwork. In this episode, you’ll hear a live breathwork session as well as the answers to all of the most common breathwork questions. I answer everything from how often to do breathwork, why I think it’s easier than meditation, what you should do after breathwork and so much more!

Inside this episode I jam on:

  • How breathwork helps you get into your body
  • The 3 things I use to make decisions
  • A tri-active breathwork exercise
  • Why safety in breathwork is important especially for those with trauma
  • How breathwork can bring up anxiety 
  • How often you should practice breathwork and why it’s easier than meditation
  • How Pause Breathwork is different from other breathwork philosophies 
  • Practices that you can do post-breathwork
