WHY WE NEED BREATHWORK NOW
OUR ENERGY IS VITAL
Stephanie recognizes that many are facing serious personal and collective well-being complications from being overwhelmed and under supported. Being busy, stressed-out, and soul-hungry is a common theme of modern living. Statistics reveal that stress, anxiety, burnout, depression, addictions, emotional repression and health complications are at an alarming high today. It is essential that we re-develop our inherent skills to thrive and re-connect, rest and relax. Our energy is an expression of our physical health, our emotional and mental functioning. The nature of our busy modern lives and societal pressures means that our natural energy sources and self-perceptions are constantly being tugged at, pulled on and challenged. The skill-set we require now is to develop trained relaxation responses and a receiving of healing support into our everyday lives so that we have a higher capacity and resiliency to the demands and responsibilities of our fast-paced lives.
