Breathe Well, Stress Less

The breath. It is the first and last thing we use in this world, and it never leaves our side. 

It’s also either hurting or helping us at all times. In our fast-paced world, many people are over-breathing, mouth breathing, breathing too fast and sometimes flat out just breathing wrong. Research is evident on the importance of breath and its impact on physiology and biochemistry. Yet the breath is so often overlooked when it comes to our health.  

We breathe over 20,000 times a day, but most of us breathe in a way that increases stress and anxiety. Our nervous system hasn’t caught up to the modern world and is working overtime to protect us. The ability to influence your nervous system response is the root of breathwork. This presentation will first show you how to use the breath to modulate the nervous system, boost self-regulation and resilience, and then teach it to children. 

Breathing is an evidence-based, natural, cost-effective and drug-free alternative to modifying mood and emotional state — the only proven real-time tool to shift from stress to calm in minutes. The breathing and stress connection is why we need to start paying attention to HOW we breathe. We breathe automatically, but we also can breathe on purpose to reduce stress and anxiety, improve focus, enhance sleep quality and boost immunity.

In this workshop, participants will discover the power of the breath and why breathing is the cornerstone of stress management and self-regulation. We will explore breathing mechanics (the how) and psychology of breathing (the why) and its impact on wellbeing.

Don’t just breathe to survive; learn how to breathe to thrive!

Stephanie Esser, MAEd, RYT200, Level 2 BREATHE™ Coach, Founder/Owner & Breathing Coach – Balancing Elephants, Inc.

Level: Basic | For: Parents, teachers, therapists, and caregivers | Ages Addressed: ages 5 and up
