ANDA með ANDRA | Breathwork sessions
With chronic stress, anxiety, sleep disorders, auto-immune conditions, burnouts, and other stress-related conditions on the rise worldwide, it is time to go back to the basics and make fundamental changes for good.
The good news is that breathing is a trending topic. People are becoming conscious of the power of breathwork for optimal performance and better health. Taking proactive measures to improve their own health, build resilience and explore their full potential.
Breathwork has been around for centuries. There are countless methods and techniques available today. From esoteric approaches to evidence-based protocols. From breathing exercises for specific outcomes to functional breathing in your everyday life. Yet, all of them have in essence the same core principles. The goal is to bring you back into a state of balance. To your center. One breath at a time. Here and now.
You will be guided into the essence of breathwork. Finding balance, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Using the combination of what we know works to get the best out of each breath. Giving you the tools, the understanding, for you to master within your own practice.
Our challenge for you is to discover that practicing breathwork, training it, and becoming conscious of your own breath, is fundamentally more important as a self-care practice, than physical exercise or diet.
Some of the known benefits of breathwork:
Physical and mental balance
Improve athletic endurance
Increase willpower and self-control
Breathing right matters.
Let’s talk about some of the evidence-based methods that I teach as a health & personal development coach:
Wim Hof Method - Level 2 Certified Instructor
Buteyko Clinic International - Certified Instructor
Oxygen Advantage - Certified Instructor
XPT Performance Breathing - Certified Coach
I often get asked the difference between these evidence-based methods, and people often wonder which one is better. Yet, in truth, they are unique and also complimentary depending on the person and desired outcomes for overall mental and physical health.
The Wim Hof Method breathwork is a powerful breathing exercise to obtain various health benefits: more energy, reduced stress levels, and an augmented immune response to deal with pathogens. Combining this with cold therapy and mindset to learn to keep oneself in balance amidst any circumstance. Learning to be OK no matter what.
The Buteyko method focuses more on the way we breathe and targets people who have health or craniofacial issues related to their breathing. Adapted for children, teenagers, and adults of all ages offering specific breathing exercises and protocols applied for specific health conditions.
Oxygen Advantage training is optimizing breathing patterns in healthy people, with the goal of improving recovery, energy levels, focus, concentration, and exercise performance.
Finally, XPT focuses on extreme athletic performance and how to use breathwork for improved results.
The way you breathe strongly affects the chemical and physiological activities in your body. The amount of oxygen that we inhale through our breathing, influences the amount of energy that is released into our body cells. Breathing is the easiest and most instrumental part of the autonomic nervous system to control and navigate.
The various methods that Andri teaches have been linked to reducing symptoms of diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, asthma, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and several autoimmune diseases.
