Episode 40 - Reclaiming Your Breath with Neuroscientist & Breathwork Coach, Cathy Scanlon (PhD).

In this episode, Cathy and I unpack the barriers of entry to breathwork and remind you that you are in control of the decisions you make inside (and outside) of your breathwork practice.

My intention for this episode is to inspire you to breathe without feeling like you'll somehow fail or 'open pandora's box'.

There are a plethora of benefits to breathwork which Cathy shares with us throughout this episode. I hope it hits home for you the way it did for me!
