#5 Getting Acquainted With Your Breath

Breathing: it’s the first thing we do when we come into this world and it’s the last thing we do before we leave. It’s our life force in a very literal sense. Yet, it is something most of us never stop to pay any attention to. Slowing down, loving into your breath, even for as little as 1 minute a day, is one super simple thing you can do today with an incredible list of benefits including: reducing stress, reducing inflammation, improving mindset and so much more.

Consider this Part 1 as we will be going deep into our breath and different breathwork practices at regular intervals within our podcast.

You’ll learn:

  • Why breathing is so important (other than the fact it keeps us alive!)
  • The connection between breath, our fight or flight response and managing stress
  • An easy everyday practice for mindful breathing
  • The connection of breathwork and affirmations for gradually shifting and strengthening our mindset

PLUS, a bite-size guided breathwork where Kami leads Christie through one of her favourite grounding practices.

Profile picture for Christie Lee & Kami Ramini

Christie Lee & Kami Ramini

Kami Ramini is a mum of 2, certified health coach (Integrative Nutrition IIN HC), food and health writer and founder of This Mum's Kitchen. Kami takes a bio-individual approach to her work with every client and centres her coaching on the premise of teaching women about "filling your cup". What this means will be different for everyone, but it's the grounding affirmation that by loving into our own mind, body, spirit wellbeing, we are intrinsically also doing better by everyone we love and everyone who relies on us. At whatever stage of your journey, whether you are preparing for pregnancy, already pregnant, already a mum or a busy woman for countless other reasons, remember that if our cups are full, then there is enough for us and enough for everyone else in our lives to take a sip too. Self-care isn't selfish, it's anything but.

Kami currently sees clients one-on-one and in groups and runs bi-monthly detox and reset programs through her Mind Body Lifestyle Wellness Club membership packages.

Christie Lee is a prenatal and gut health dietitian and founder of Christie Lee Nutrition. Christie originally became a dietitian as she's always been passionate about empowering people with the impact of food and diet on our health. With the current state of chronic diseases growing within our society, Christie's approach to health has become fuelled by a deep passion to help people find the root cause of health concerns and conquer life roadblocks to achieve ultimate health and happiness.

Specialising in fertility, pregnancy and gut health, Christie believes the secret to a better health outlook for our society is in educating mums and mums to be to eat well, be well and therefore give our next generation the very best chance to thrive.

Christie currently sees clients one-on-one and delivers workshops and presentations regularly online and around Perth.
