Breathwork is a type of exercise that teaches you to manipulate your breathing rate and depth with the goal of bringing awareness to your breath and ultimately providing the same benefits you get from a meditative practice. People who practice breathwork describe feeling tingling sensations throughout their body, feelings of clarity, alertness, increased mind-body connection and even emotional purging.
There are many types of breathwork practices, some ranging from easy to do at home, to others requiring a practitioner to teach you the practice. Some breathwork practices are rooted in yogic traditions such as Pranayama. Other breathwork practices are entirely secular and were developed to help people heal their minds or bodies or even to withstand extreme physical conditions.
