How is Breathwork different from medidation?

Breathwork is often referred to as “meditation for people who can’t meditate”, as to most people practicing breathwork feels easier than meditation.

As meditation means to ‘focus the mind on a particular object, thought, or activity – to train attention and awareness, and achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm and stable state’*, focusing on your breathing pattern can be seen as a type of meditation. Meditation however is not always breathwork.

There are many different types of meditation, the act of consciously focussing on and controlling your breathing patterns is one of them.
