It blew my mind how powerful breath work can be.
The first time I tried it, I closed my eyes and did a 30 minute session of breathwork — when I o opened my eyes, I was in tears and my body was curled into the fetal position. I felt like I had this massively cathartic experience…almost like an orgasm. My fingers were fused together and took a good 15 minutes for them to start moving normally again. It will blow your mind!
