Breathing keeps us alive. We do it on autopilot. But beyond that, what I’ve really noticed in both myself and many of my clients is that so many of us walk around like we’re holding our breath. With the climate of the world the way it is, we’ve normalized stress and it often shows up in our bodies this way.

That brings me to my special guest today on episode 172, Miyako Hazama. She caught my eye in one of the groups we’re in together because she’s a breath expert. In this episode, we have a conversation about how we can use our breath to help us heal ourselves, from the inside out.
