Inspiration Space,, the wellbeing website for all things breathing, launch ‘Breathe to De-stress’, this month. This is an downloadable mp3 audio package full of simple breath exercises, perfect for beginners and for those looking to give their wellbeing a boost.
‘Breathe to de-stress’ includes 5 breath-led exercises in audio format written and recorded by co-founder of Inspiration Space, Conscious Breath-worker and yoga teacher, Aimee Hartley. You can also make your own breath practice of of 2 – 30 minute breathing exercise videos and audio guides to build your own routine. They have been formulated and recorded for anyone short on time but wishing to improve their breathing.

Aimee says: “I was inspired to create The ‘Breathe to de-stress’ online mp3’s after seeing a number of corporate clients who said they felt like they were short on time but really keen to keep up a regular breathing practice.  After speaking with other clients, from parents to therapists, doctors and students, all who had very busy lives, I realised that online breathing classes could be of benefit those who are time pressured and these can be weaved into daily life.  You can listen to them on waking, on commute, at the desk and just before you drift off to sleep”.

‘Stress affects one in five of the working population, from the newest recruit on a work placement, to the board of directors and is now the single biggest cause of sickness in the UK, with over 105 million days lost to stress each year – costing UK employers £1.24 billion’.  (source: Health and Safety Executive)

Deep abdominal breathing is the focus of all the online breath-led exercises from Inspiration Space, which can help the listener experience a sense of deep relaxation.  The breathing routines can help expand your unique breathing pattern and the breath-led meditations have been scripted to help calm the mind.  There are a couple of free breathing exercises for beginners and an informative video for those interested in the cutting edge breath-work, Transformational Breath.

The American Institute of Stress says:  “Abdominal breathing for 20 to 30 minutes each day will reduce anxiety and reduce stress. Deep breathing increases the supply of oxygen to your brain and stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which promotes a state of calmness. Breathing techniques help you feel connected to your body, bringing your awareness away from the worries in your head and quiets your mind.” 

Once you have accessed the downloadable breath exercises, you can keep and practice them forever.
