The Impact of Breathwork on Our Brain

The Impact of Breathwork on Our Brain

Brain Science & Breathwork

Much happens to our bodies during a breathwork session. For example, our blood gets a bit more alkaline due to the deeper, continuous breathing. This has the effect of less activity in a specific part of the brain called the Default Mode Network (DMN). This is the part of the brain that is working when we are not focused on a specific task and is responsible for the mental constructs of self and ego. When this area of the brain is quiet we get access to parts of our unconscious mind that we do not normally have access to. This is the part of our psyche/body wisdom that is responsible for running our body 24/7 without us thinking about it and also knows exactly what needs to happen in our body and psyche to move towards health and wholeness.
