Healthy respiration: the power of breathing
Breathing and exercise are fundamental to life and are closely linked by nature. Breathing keeps us moving over our lifetimes, while regular exercise helps us to breathe more fully and, with more staying power, we can achieve more in life. The fuller and more consciously we breathe, the more fresh life pulsates in our veins, nerves and cells, waste products are more effectively eliminated from our bodies – and we thus feel lighter and livelier, more relaxed, vibrant and vigorous. Breathing: steering our lives
Breathing affects many aspects of the body, helping us relax effectively, minimise worries, relieve pain and top up energy levels. Science has shown that targeted breathing exercises can promote vitality, inner peace, concentration, while unleashing unimagined resources for holistic well-being.
“Quiet and effective breathing is the best recipe for physical and spiritual well-being. Deep abdominal breathing stimulates the internal organs, improving the metabolism, blood circulation, digestion and strengthening the immune system”, says Dr Werner Kirschner, an exercise and sports scientists at the University of Innsbruck. Himself a breathing coach, he has along with South Tyrol’s Vitalpina® Hotels developed the Vitalpina® “deep breathing” concept, firmly convinced that breathing is the link between our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual states.
Take a breather: the Vitalpina® deep breathing programme
The Vitalpina® deep breathing programme consists of guided breathing walks and breathing exercises in the fresh air, offered regularly to guests by all the Vitalpina® “Escapist” hotels: calming or stimulating breathing techniques help guests to really get going in the morning, to actively relax and to top up with extra energy.
