Ever rolled your eyes at the age-old advice to “just breathe” in the midst of life’s chaos? Yep, guilty as charged! But let's be honest – can simply taking a breath, or practicing breath work, really solve the complex challenges we’re faced with on a daily basis? Spoiler alert: not a chance 😅! But here’s the thing, there’s value in harnessing the tool of our own brilliant biology to allow ourselves to meet individual, interpersonal, and systematic issues from the most grounded place possible. Curious about how to unleash this potential? Find out how, plus more, in Shift Collab Therapist Elizabeth Bala’s upcoming free virtual workshop on September 19 at 6 PM EST! You can expect to learn about the nervous system to understand why breathwork works, strengthen your ability to feel grounded in your body by connecting with your breath, be actively guided through four different breathwork tools and learn about the benefits of breath work as an everyday wellness tool.
