Have you heard of breath work?
I ask people often when they come to work with me if they are breathing. They look at me with questionable eyes, “What do you mean? Of course I am breathing.”
Well, did you know that most of the population of humans only use about one-third of their respiratory system? When we stop breathing, we cut off our life force, meaning we as a species are living half numb.
What do you think the #1 reason we stop breathing is?
You guessed it if you said: So we don’t have to feel.
We hold our breath, so we don’t have to feel uncomfortable or feel pain. At the same time, we also stop ourselves from exploring all the pleasure that is possible in our life.
I have been studying and teaching breath work for over two decades. In fact, as an intimacy and mindful relationship educator, breath work therapy is the foundation of all my programs.
With each of us having a conditioned breath pattern, it is clear that by changing our breathing pattern, we shift our relational habits. As well, we feel more, we feel safe again in our bodies, and we become more available for pleasure and joy.
Breath work today is one of the most efficient and effective natural ways to experience transpersonal renewal. It is a perfect agency to resolve stress, holding patterns, suffering and accessing daily peace, connection to self and others, and more pleasure states.
All over the internet, you will find there are many studies done by universities showing the benefits of breath work today.
Now, you can imagine how much I LOVE breath work!
Experiencing my first session in the year 2000 with a group of 40 people during training in the middle of the Swiss Alps in a tiny village called Kiental, I knew, without a doubt, the potency of this work.
Breath work was medicine for my healing, as well as what I would carry out to the world until this day. The fantastic thing is, if you do this breath work before and during sex, you will undoubtedly ask, “Why haven’t I done this sooner?”
The thing is, when I offer intimacy and sexuality coaching; most people find that they are holding their breath when arousal increases.
Have you ever felt yourself tightening and chasing the orgasmic pleasure?
This will actually limit the pleasure felt, and the intimate depth which is possible. When we contract it creates constriction, thus cutting off from what is possible for us to feel. In comparison, opening up and breathing deeper allows us to feel more and let more enjoyment into the experience of sexual connection.
Breath work during sex is a magical elixir.
It increases your sensitivity, pleasure, presence, desire, and adds a sense of soul connection. It also turns up the volume on the orgasmic experience.
