In this episode, Joanne discusses:

  • Benefits of breath work.
  • The sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.
  • How stress can engage our nervous system.
  • Ways to feel the body without the sense of touch.

Key Takeaways:

  • The respiratory system is the only system over which we have conscious control of our autonomic nervous system.
  • The autonomic nervous system is connected to a lot of other physical systems.
  • The parasympathetic nervous system can give us a feeling of calm and mental flexibility when faced with challenges.
  • Our bodies are not divided, but rather integrated – mind, body, and breath are one.

“Using mindful breathing, we can tap into our nervous system and support its overall function, balance, and health.” — Joanne King
