Neurology Primer - Neuroscience of Breathwork

What is the Neuroscience of Breathwork?

Breathwork practices have an extensive history dating back hundreds of years across several cultures. Many practices have compelling anecdotes of using consciously altered breathing patterns to achieve inner peace, improve athletic performance, and even explore altered states of consciousness.

While modern medicine has isolated the art and science of breathing into the realm of pulmonary disorders, there’s been a recent resurgence in exploring how breathwork can have profound effects on the body and mind. This movement has been heavily lead by yogis and other mind/body practitioners and many of the proposed benefits have been anecdotal and rooted in tradition.

At the same time, there’s been a large interest in the use of breathwork in the fields of sports science and neuroscience that have revealed the underlying mechanisms behind these ancient practices.

Who is this class for?


The healthcare professionals that can attend this program are MD, DC, DO, PT, OT, ATC, LMT, ND, LAc, PA, NP, and CA (If accompanied by DC).  

The Treatment Approach Taught in Neuroscience of Breathwork

In this course, we will dive into the origins of popular breath practices and what modern physiologic and neuroscientific studies tell us about their impact on the nervous system. This course was designed for therapists and health care practitioners who are interested in the scientific aspects of breath practices, but have been reluctant because of the spiritual associations with some of these practices.

Course Objectives

After taking this course, learners will be able to:

Understand the most popular forms of modern breath practices
Describe, assess, and treat signs of dysfunctional breathing patterns
Describe neurologic and physiologic mechanisms involved in styles of breath practice including:

- Slow deep breathing
- Cyclic hyperventilation
- Nasal breathing
- Breath hold and hypoxic training
- Inspiratory resistance training

Understand heart rate variability biofeedback and how to use biofeedback to enhance breath practice

Prescribe specific breathing practices based on different clinical presentations
