WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL BREATHING ?
Functional breathing is crucial for maintaining optimal oxygen levels and a balanced autonomic nervous system, which regulates involuntary bodily functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, and respiration. By becoming more aware of our breathing patterns and learning to regulate them, we can improve our physical and mental health, reduce stress, boost concentration, and increase energy levels.
Qi Gong and Oxygen Advantage workshops offer techniques and exercises that help individuals develop functional breathing patterns and improve respiratory health. These practices can be particularly useful for those with respiratory conditions like asthma, sleep apnea, or COPD.
In summary, developing functional breathing patterns through practices like Qi Gong and Oxygen Advantage can improve physical and mental health, reduce stress, and enhance overall well-being.
