About The Coaching
All matter in our universe is energy. Energy that is constantly in motion, vibrating, oscillating, and resonating, including the human being. At its core, communication is about the exchange of vibration and energy. To communicate with others, we sound our feelings and our thoughts with our own unique voice. If we desire to use our body and voice in a dynamic and compelling way, we need optimum access to our breath.
Breath is Life
To breathe is the most natural and fundamental activity of life. It is the first and last thing we do on this planet. Breath is life itself. And yet, our Western cultural and societal expectations create tension and anxiety that interfere with our natural flow of breath and in turn, the emergence of our voice. With pressures such as an achievement-oriented work ethic, competitive consumerism, and the pace of technology, we are under constant stress. We actually resist breathing and thusly constrict the flow of life energy itself. Rarely do we take the time to notice our breath or to take full advantage of our capacity to breathe. At best, poor breathing habits deprive us of the opportunity to employ our physical and mental faculties to their fullest capacity. At worst, our inefficient breathing can cause illness and disease.
Brain and Breath are connected – Thought flows with breath. Natural flow of breath calms the mind. If the mind is distressed, the breath becomes unsettled. Conversely, if the breath is uneven or agitated the mind is apt to be confused.
Much of the time our bodies are in an unconscious state of tension which interferes with the natural flow of the breath cycle. Unwitting resistance to breath in turn causes tension in the body and restriction in the voice. Through mindful, focused attention we become consciously aware of our breath and body and can begin to undo and release tension and habitual patterns that interfere with the release of sound.
