Sometimes it's a collapse that's required
Often when we're doing breath work we're encouraged to breathe slowly in and out, and to hold the expansion and the contraction. While that's really good, what I'm finding in the clinic that is even better is a big breath in and then a complete breath out, a big exhale. Because what that creates is a collapse, and generally for most people what we actually need is a collapse. We need a dropping out, a letting go. That's what really works.
