Memorable Moments:

”When we change the way somebody breathes, we change their entire health.”

“The average person is unconscious about how they breathe, and it’s something that we do 23,000 times a day, whether we like it or not. And air, believe it or not, is the thing that we consume the most. The average person, the average adult, consumes about 30 pounds of air a day.”

”How we breathe plays a huge role in our immune health, plays a huge role in our energy levels, plays a huge role in how well we detoxify and eliminate toxicity from our body. In fact, 70% of the toxins in our body are actually eliminated through the lungs.”

”It’s a very sophisticated instrument of healing, and it’s also very simple. We’re already doing it. We just need to draw our consciousness to it and then make the minor adjustments and shifts so that now we are breathing in a way that prioritizes our health.”

”Our breath overrides the brain…How our children breathe and how we as adults breathe is super informative to the nervous system, to our cellular respiratory system, and also to our behavior as well.”

“The easiest analogy I can give to people is that the breath is like the steering wheel of the nervous system. So are we breathing in such a way that it’s steering us in the right direction or are we breathing in such a way that it’s steering us in an undesirable direction.”

“We want our nervous system to match our desired state, and our nervous system is steered by our breath.”
