    Breathwork: improve mental, emotional, and physical well-being

    Breathwork: improve mental, emotional, and physical well-being

    There exists a tool, accessible within all of us, that holds an immense amount of potential: breathwork. Today's guest on The Hoame Podcast is Ana Lilia, breathwork coach, and intuitive healer. 4 years ago, Ana found breathwork in her own mental health journey, and her life changed forever. As someone with "high-functioning" anxiety, she left her first class feeling suddenly empowered and in charge of her life. That's when she decided to become a certified breathwork coach. Breathing exercises are known techniques when it comes to mitigating feelings of anxiety. Hosts Stephanie and Carolyn, for instance, have often used it in their own practices for patients experiencing symptoms related to stress. It works because breathwork sends signals to the parasympathetic nervous system to calm the body down. Listen to this episode to hear more about Ana Lilia's journey, why breathwork works so well in combination with other forms of therapy, and what potential benefits it yields for all aspects of your life- including asking your boss for that promotion you've earned.
