Katee Forbis Breath and Recovery
I was part of a breathing class that was hosted by my gym and taught by Taylor Somerville. 15 minutes in and I was already hooked! As someone who has suffered from anxiety for many years, I was skeptical that simply changing the way I breathe could truly help. I had tried to do some breathing exercises on my own in the past, but I never felt like I knew what I was doing! But the breathing techniques that Taylor taught me have helped me to feel much more in control during moments that used to cause me a lot of anxiety. My husband and I were both so interested in learning more about breath and recovery that we asked Taylor to lead a private class in our home. I am someone who is very inexperienced in this area, but it wasn’t an issue because Taylor has done all the research and knows this stuff backwards and forwards. He also didn’t mind when I asked him A LOT of questions about breathing and how it could help me in other areas of my life. He answered all of my questions and never made me feel stupid or silly for asking them, no matter how simple or complex the questions were. I am now using these techniques to not only control my anxiety but also to improve my Crossfit style workouts. Learning how to breathe properly has also caused me to feel less overwhelmed in my day to day life, and I am beginning to use the techniques to improve my sleep as well! If this sounds too good to be true, I encourage you to go to one class and experience it for yourself. Maybe I’ll be there too! (I’m kind of addicted!)
