One of the first times I had my logical mind shaken up was when I met my dear friend and colleague Buffy Owens.
A couple of decades ago, she was helping a client with her posture, yoga, and breath work, and get this, the woman lost over 20 pounds. She credited it mostly to shifting the way she inhaled and exhaled, from shallow to deep belly breaths.
That perked my clinical nutritionist mind. What else didn’t I know?
I started working online with clients who were mentally strong. They wanted to ‘know’ everything about nutrition. Instead of giving them more nutritional science, I taught them to pause, take 5-deep breaths and begin to relax their sympathetic nervous system so they could interpret their body’s needs and not just their minds.
Then get this. I met people who were breatharians. They practiced breath work to replace the need for food.
DISCLAIMER*** I do NOT endorse or teach this approach. As a lover of food, a social butterfly, and an emotional eater, this wasn’t my path. But if you think it is yours, PLEASE only reach out to trusted practitioners.
This whole philosophy did intrigue and led me to a one-week program. I loved it. I noticed fewer cravings, more balanced blood sugar, and a relaxed mind. The breath work was intense and complicated and I didn’t ‘stick’ with it.
However, I wanted to study a more hands-on healing modality, and Neurodynamic breath work landed in my lap this year. For the last 6 months, I have become a practitioner and personally practiced breath work weekly.
While I was in Nebraska, this music-led, SIMPLE breath technique, helped me process emotions, reduce mental stress and felt like I was doing my own therapy session every week.
If you are craving a more gentle, self-led, Heather-guided:), relaxed modality to move some stuck energy, I got ya!
