What are the benefits of conscious breathing?

By taking the course, you will understand the role of breathing as a tool to impact your nervous system. You will learn the techniques for optimal breathing that reduce stress levels, aid recovery during sleep, and support mental and physical health on a daily basis. You will also learn why the advice commonly given to people in stressful situations – “Take a deep breath!” – has no scientific basis.
