What is happening in my body during breathwork?

The way you breathe has a direct effect on the chemical and physiological activities in your body. Breathing is the most effective way to change your physical, mental and emotional state in the moment, as you’re able to directly control and navigate the autonomic nervous system.

Breathwork helps balancing oxygen and co2 levels in the blood, optimizing the amount of oxygen that reaches all cells and tissues. The way you breathe influences your heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, release of hormones and neurotransmitters, muscle tension, blood PH and the body’s innate immune response.
