[LISTEN] Masterclass: How conscious breathing alleviates stress

Breathing is considered an important part of your overall health and well being.

Poor breathing habits are common and few understand that by practicing conscious breathing, you can improve certain aspects of your life, like your sleeping pattern.

Medical Doctor, author and speaker Dr Ela Manga joined Azania Mosaka on her show, to share more on the importance of conscious breathing and techniques you can adopt.

Working with the breath we can immediately shift from a stressful, fear based state to a calm state that is more supportive of well-being. By turning our conscious awareness to something that we are already doing and working with it skillfully, we can immediately affect a change in our physiology.

Dr Ela Manga, Medical Doctor, Author and Speaker

Not only does it have a physical impact but it also changes our behavior, so we are moving from a more reactive space to a more responsive space.

Dr Ela Manga, Medical Doctor, Author and Speaker

The belly needs to be moving when we are breathing, if that is not happening that is the first sign you are not doing it right.
