BreathworkHow this breathing practice can help and transform you
The breath work that Alison uses is an ancient form of Pranayama yoga from India, developed over a thousand years ago. Pranayama is defined as the formal practice of controlling the breath, which is the source of our prana, or vital life force.
In her quest for understanding, Alison has studied many forms of healing, Pranayama and meditation. She has traveled the world learning from healers in India, Japan, the Amazon rainforest, the United States, Tibet, and Nepal to name a few. After all of her searching, Alison finally found this breath work, which brought her into a deep state of bliss and oneness. As soon as she found this breath work, she knew the breath was her medicine and teacher and that she was meant to bring this healing to the world. Alison has committed her life to bringing this healing to others. She is dedicated to helping people connect with their essence, let go of their fears, and embrace their life’s calling.
Alison teaches a 2 stage breath work that is done while lying down and breathing deeply into the lower belly, then into the upper chest and then exhaling. Through the use of the breath a person is able to open their hypothalamus gland or crown chakra and allow the energy from the universe to enter their body. By focusing on the breath a person’s mind is able to quiet so that the resistance and chatter of the mind calms and the healing can occur. This is a safe and simple practice that has profound healing effects on a person.

She believes that self-love is the key to healing. She uses the breath work to bring awareness to her clients about their true nature and guide them to a place where they can love themselves a little more.

Why is this Breath Work so successful?
Recent scientific research is now showing that mindful breathing—paying attention to your breath and learning how to manipulate it—is one of the most effective ways to lower everyday stress levels and improve a variety of health factors ranging from mood to metabolism. Pranayama, as taught by Alison, relies on the very direct relationship between breath rate, mood state, and the autonomic nervous system state. The autonomic nervous system governs the body’s sympathetic (flight or no flight) and parasympathetic (rest and restore) responses, dialing functions like heart rate, respiration, and digestion up or down as necessary in response to potential threats. This worked well on an evolutionary basis, but today’s nonstop barrage of stimulus like smartphone pings, emails and news updates often trips the body’s alarms at too great a rate. As a person takes each breath, millions of sensory receptors in the respiratory system send signals to the brainstem. Fast breathing pings the brain at a higher rate, triggering it to activate the sympathetic nervous system, turning up stress hormones, heart rate, blood pressure, muscle tension, sweat production and anxiety. On the other hand, slowing your breathing induces the parasympathetic response, dialing down all of the above as it turns up relaxation, calm and mental clarity. This is the power of pranayama that Alison teaches.
