Why breath work?
Your breath is your direct access point to your autonomic nervous system.
Breath practices are often grossly underrated and appreciated - we dismiss that something as simple as our breath can have such a deeply profound effect on our physical and mental wellbeing.
Lets explore some common signs of dysfunctional breathing:
- Anxiety, stress & panic
- Insomnia and issues with sleep
- Nausea and bloating
- Chest pain and tightness
- A feeling that you cannot catch your breath or take in enough air
And this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Many people have dysfunctional breathing patterns that actually cause problems or keep them stuck in a loop of tension, anxiety, stress and ill health - without even realising it.
This programme will help you assess and address this and build your capacity for calm, regulation & embodiment.
In this course you will learn...
how to assess your breathing rate and Co2 tolerance
how to retrain your diaphragm for full functional breathing
a range of breathing practices to help you activate your parasympathetic nervous system
breath tools you can use to uplift you and increase energy and focus
Inside you'll find over 15 trauma informed, gentle, nurturing and self-paced breath practices.
Most of the practices are less than 10 minutes long, so they make the perfect daily addition to your wellbeing toolkit.
"Just did Day 14 of the Breathing challenge. This is one I'd like to incorporate daily to counteract stress and also upper back muscle tension from my work day. I loved the whole challenge! Thanks Becks!!" - Susan
"Absolutely loved the straw breath exhalation that really helped me extend my out breath by so much. Loving all of these tips to extend the breath." - Emily
Hi, i'm Becks...
I'm a qualified counsellor, a coach, a 7 x best-selling author & illustrator and the founder of Journey to Wellness.
I help people like you go from feeling overloaded, overwhelmed, anxious & dysregulated to feeling supported, calm, resilient and thriving.
Why? Because I've been there too. I experienced years of chronic anxiety, panic attacks and a nervous system that felt frazzled and flustered. I've worked in mental health for over 13 years now and studied everything from somatic interventions to yin yoga, cognitive behavioural therapy to polyvagal theory, narrative therapy to mindfulness facilitation.
I'm here to distill all that knowledge for you to bring you mental health support and tools that are practical, digestible, accessible and just a little bit fun.
