Conscious breathing is the practice of breathing with awareness, intention and attention to your inner experience, in the present moment.
Breathing, beyond the basic need for survival, acts as a bridge between spirit, mind, and body; between the conscious and the subconscious. "Conscious Breathing" is one of the quickest ways to open our hearts to love and inner peace, and to fill our bodies with life and health.
Conscious breathing can be as simple as a few minutes' exercise to promote mental focus and relax the body. It can be practiced by all ages in all circumstances including schools, the workplace, hospitals, and during periods of stress, including post-traumatic situations, etc. When used regularly, It can help people develop the skill of relaxation, even in challenging situations. Conscious Breathing is also the base of many meditation and yoga practices and is used in the preparation and cool-down phases of many physical activities.
Conscious breathing practices can vary in duration and intensity, as well as in the form of breathing used.
