Breathwork is praised for its ability to bring us into the present moment. Here are some of the emotional, physical, and mental benefits after going on a journey with your breath.

We can improve focus on tasks at hand, and enjoy our surroundings when we allow ourselves some time to breathe. A more obvious perk is how we get better results from all types of physical exercise when we use our breath to our advantage.
