In several countries, such as Norway and Sweden, MediYoga is used in the healthcare system due to its proven health-promoting effects in rehabilitation, prevention and treatment.
The breath and its overall impact are widely underestimated, both by health professionals and by most people. You breathe on average somewhere between 15 and 30 000 times a day and it is the only function in your body that is both conscious and unconscious. Deep and good breathing is essential for your physical and mental well-being. In other words, we can say that your breathing is a barometer of your mood. Small changes in the way you breathe can make a huge difference in everyday life.
The wonderful thing about breathing is that it is free and there is a lot you can do on your own. Some simple adjustments can go a long way. For example, adopting an appropriate breathing technique with a focus on prolonged exhalation will activate the part of the nervous system that makes you feel calm and more present to your body.
All Kokoon Wellness practitioners have a high level of experience and thorough training in different breathing techniques – including on how to guide others into conscious breathing. Our goal is for you to experience the downright magical effect that correct breathing can have on your overall well-being.
Meditation is an ancient practice that can be done in many different ways. Some people will find it beneficial to repeat a given mantra in a sitting position, others will move or walk in a certain way to silence or music, whilst others will concentrate on something specific in a sitting or lying position. Meditation can help to quieten the mind and lead to experience oneself from a space of weightlessness, enabling oneself to feel the reality of our deeper nature, the spirit we are, always present beyond our physical body.
Through meditation, many people have found that they are able to access their inner space, in which they feel calm, safe, in balance and harmony. It can even be the key to the feeling of being one with the Universe and all that is. Meditation has proven to be extremely effective to reduce mental, physical and emotional stress. It is a practice that gives us the opportunity to observe what is going on in our life. Taking that step back can allow us to unhook from repeating thoughts and overwhelming emotions, which in turn can have a positive influence on various health challenges.
