Breathwork is an umbrella term referring to breathing techniques that use conscious and connected breath in a therapeutic setting to bring about healing, release, catharsis, and insight. It is based on the belief that our first breaths in this world, and every breath that followed, may have embedded trauma in the physiological system -- and breath is the most accessible and most simple tool to address those wounds.

Rebirthing, Holotropic Breathwork and Liberation Breathing are among the most renowned forms of contemporary breathwork which have ancient roots. Throughout the world, shamanic, yogic and meditative practices have incorporated breathwork, and modern science has been finding increasing proof of its benefits for overall wellbeing. Here are 6 things you should know about breathwork!
