Benefits of Breathwalk
INCREASED ENERGY LEVELS & PHYSICAL WELL BEING - Large reserves of energy available in our muscles and in our glands are ready to be opened and used with the help of our breathing. The nervous system can both hold and release energy when trained like a muscle.
EMOTIONAL CONTROL - Our mood affects memory what thoughts we tune in to and how we use our energy levels. Breathing Patterns can shift the mood from, anxious to calm, from depressed to hopeful, from confident to concerned. These shifts occur because of the interaction of exercise and the body's complex neurochemistry. The combination of breathing, posture and rhythm changes your mood.
MENTAL QUALITY - We influence our mental clarity by practicing doing things that give energy to the nervous system. A single postitive thought can release a cascade of healing effects throughout our being. Breathwalk gives you a way to immediately and directly affect your mind / mind and the flow of thoughts.
SPIRIT & CONNECTEDNESS -As all practices of yoga, meditation or spiritual work breathwalk gives us a greater sense of connection with self. Breathing, meditation and being in nature aligns us with our centre. It connects us to our sprit, with the deepest part of ourself.
The Human way of walking has developed during millions of years and in a way that has connections to all of the bodily systems such as the heart and circulation, digestion and even perceptual organs as the eyes. To walk gives all these system a healthy tuneup. The heart gets stronger, the circulation in the body increases, the effectiveness of the digestion system becomes better and your overall perception becomes clearer. Just walking decreases the risk of cancer, heart disease and depression.
