Water, Whiskey, Coffee - Yoga Breathing Made Simple

With Lucas Rockwood


“It’s not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it.” - Hans Selye

Mental and emotional stress were at historic highs pre-Coronavirus. Today, the collective anxiety of the world borders on dangerous. How much uncertainty and loss can we tolerate? Is there an upper limit? The answers will unfold in real-time in the coming months, and that’s why it’s more important than ever to equip yourself with stress management tools for navigating your inner world.

Yoga breathing is one of the most powerful nervous system modulated practices available - and yet it continues to be misunderstood and neglected in most health circles. The benefits are immediate, and even a beginner can impact their nervous system dramatically in as little as 10 breaths.

In today’s podcast, I’ll help demystify yoga breathing and share with you three simple practices you can use right now.
