DEEP DIAPHRAGM BREATHING

Belly breathing is what we do as babies, as we grow up we begin to hold tension and engage in chest breathing which activates sympathetic nervous system - related to stress and anxiety. SYM brings attention to breathing from the belly using the diaphragm, which uses the utmost lung capacity and has multiple health benefits including relieving anxiety and stress.

DEEP EXPERIENCE

Conscious breathing engages the cerebral cortex stimulating evolved areas of the brain. Engaging in basic pranayama breathing - deep smooth inhale and exhale creates a calm and expanded state of mind. Breathing practices are part of ancient wisdom traditions, and are a tool to altered states of mind.

DEEP CONNECTION

We are often overwhelmed by the lack of real connections in the age of the social media and overstimulation. SYM offers a space to reconnect to oneself, to one’s breath and to tune in rather than tune out. Breathing with multiple users will create another form of communication, beyond language and inhibitions.

 
 

BENEFITS

Deep diaphragm breathing has multiple benefits:

  • rebalances the autonomic nervous system 

  • reduces heart rate

  • stimulates parasympathetic nervous system inducing calm 

  • helps the release of endorphins, oxytocin, serotonin, dopamine

  • aids digestive system and blood circulation

  • promotes better blood flow which uplifts the energy levels
