Coherent Breathing For Physical & Emotional Balance
How to do it: Match your breath to a specific count to promote emotional and physical balance.
Coherent Breathing, a practice derived from ancient yogic traditions and adapted for modern applications, focuses on the alignment of breath with a specific count to promote emotional and physical balance. By matching the inhalation and exhalation to a predetermined rhythm, typically involving a specific count of breaths per minute, this technique helps regulate the autonomic nervous system. It engages the body’s natural relaxation response, effectively reducing stress and promoting emotional equilibrium. The intentional, synchronized breathing patterns encourage increased heart rate variability, contributing to improved cardiovascular health. Furthermore, Coherent Breathing supports mental clarity and a sense of calm, making it a valuable practice for those seeking to manage stress, enhance emotional well-being, and support physical health simultaneously.
