Quick, stop whatever you are doing and, take a deep breath. Notice how that does make you feel better.. but why? Breathwork is a technique that uses the intentional act of breathing to help reset the mind. At ShaMynds Healing Center we often use these techniques to support your ketamine journey and to support you in addressing your stress and traumatic experiences. So how does it work? When we breathe consciously, the mind slows down and hones us into the present moment. It adds a feeling of clarity, calm and focus. Even the smallest break can go a long way in boosting concentration and calmness. Breathwork gives new meaning to the term: “Take a Breather!”
What are the top health benefits of breathwork?
- Breathwork helps put the brakes on an acute stress response and diverts the health problems associated with chronic stress.
- By eliciting the body’s relaxation response, deep abdominal breathing helps reduce blood pressure.
- More complex methods, such as Holotropic Breathwork with a trained instructor, have been linked to enhancing addiction recovery as well as supporting cathartic release of stress and trauma.
Where did the practice originate?
Conscious breathing practices for the purpose of physical, psychological, emotional, and even spiritual healing can be found in many places and time periods across the globe. We are excited to introduce a reputable group that offers online breathwork sessions. At ShaMynds Healing Center, we will soon be offering in person breathwork groups, so we thought we should help you understand now how it all works, even though it is remote.
Neurodynamic Breathwork™ is offering a free introductory session. See below and book your session.

Get More Comfortable With Releasing Sound During Your Breathwork Sessions
Sound therapy is extremely powerful, and in breathwork we always recommend that our participants use their voice when something comes up, because the practice of releasing sound is extremely healing! However, many have blocks in this area. So this Thursday offering is a great opportunity to push whatever limits you may have in terms of sound expression, and thus also deepen your breathwork experience.
Practice the Breathwork Principles of Let Go and Surrender
“…as you exhale you’re surrendering and letting go of things that you really can’t control which is how your voice is going to sound. And it’s such a beautiful lesson for life. You get to experience freedom and an openness in voice. It’s a very safe environment to explore.”
– Alex King-Harris
Connect With Universal Awareness Through Your Breath
“For me in my own personal journey I had a very successful music career as a producer and performer, but I also found that there were certain blocks coming up in my capacity to stay in touch with the Source of music…along the path I was blessed with this incredible way of singing that has everything to do with the breath and this why it is such a beautiful offering for breathworkers, because the essential practice is really connecting with this Universal awareness through receptive quality within your breath, inviting life into your body.” – Alex King-Harris
