326: Breathing As a Movement Skill w/ Julie Angel

When most people think about movement training they don’t necessarily think about training their breath patterns, but my guest on this episode of the Grace & Grit podcast, Julie Angel, will have you convinced that breath is indeed a movement skill that everyone can benefit from.

Julie Angel is a multi-passionate movement, breathwork and parkour coach, artist, award winning filmmaker and author. In this episode we explore:

  • The benefits of restoring functional breathing patterns,
  • Why you want light, slow and deep breath,
  • Why starting and finishing any movement training with breath is so beneficial,
  • The connection of breathwork to stress and resilience,

…and so much more!
