The 'Getting To Grips With' Podcast / #020 - James Dowler - Harness The Power Of The Breath

Listen on

Episode notes

For Episode 20 I was joined by James Dowler

James is a breathwork specialist and teaches people how to use the breath as a vehicle for healing and optimising their physical and mental health.

James suffered from chronic fatigue & chronic pain and then discovered meditation to help alleviate it. Fast forward 6 months all his symptoms had gone after practicing more specifically with breath work. James took a leap of faith, left the ‘day job’ and now spends his time teaching people to harness the power of their breath to alleviate emotional issues, improve their physical health and connect them to a deeper, more spiritual part of themselves.

I leant so much myself in this episode and now see how we can use the breath as a skill. We did a deep dive on...

How we can all be breathing better.

How/Where to start our brrathwork journey.

How to breathe when exercising and sleeping.

Build a better relationship with the breath in general.
