breathing Nov 19, 2020

Coherent Breathing. Coherence here means a synchronization or coordination of your diaphragm, heart, lungs and brain, and consequently all the systems of your body. You can reap a lot of benefits from this practice.

Some of the potential benefits of creating a slow and even breath are:

  • balanced autonomic nervous system
  • reduced sympathetic response (stress response)
  • increased parasympathetic response (relaxation response)
  • improved vagal tone
  • improved heart rate variability

This video is and introduction to the what, why and how of coherent breathing.
