Steve guides humans on their journey within. To explore the deepest and darkest corners of their psyche and to become whole again. So I had to have him on the show to explain how we can move stuck emotion and thus root of many illnesses through our breath. We go into the history of ancient breath work practices as well as modern practices like the Wim Hof Method. Steve is also a Fascial Stretch Therapist and has been an outdoor youth mentor with Project DARE and Outward Bound. We get into the positive benefit breath work has for our mental health and Steve shares his story into healing an inflammatory condition through nothing but his breath and the will to say the words, “I am not sick”. Steve believes, as do I, that Our breath is the link between our mind and our body. Steve has studied many different breath work modalities over the years; from ancient shamanic practices of India to the more modern practices like Wim Hof. What was once grounded in mysticism is now understood by science and more and more people are turning to breath work as a tool to know thy self, expand consciousness, and heal body, soul, and spirit. Steve teaches breath work to individuals and groups as a way to boost physical performance, find their mental edge, and achieve a deep state of meditation. Steve teaches us that breath awareness is the first step towards total body awareness and healing.
