The Astonishing Process of Breathing

What is one thing that we can be 100 percent certain we all are doing together right now, no matter where you are on the planet or what activity you are up to?

Yes, breathing! Hopefully, you are breathing!

Now take a deep breath. ahhh

It’s the one thing we all definitely have in common, as long as we are alive that is. It’s also one thing that can be taken for granted or even forgotten because it’s so automatic. 

Yoga practice marries us back to our awareness of our breath and it’s the power to enhance and stabilize our body-mind. And having an understanding of the genius of our body and the complexity of the process of breathing enhances our understanding and practice even further. 

I’m amazed by the microscopic intelligence that is communicating within our body 24/7 for our entire life.

Tiny beings are literally working non-stop to keep us alive. And it’s all happening in the background. 

We don’t literally hear the conversations of our cells communicating with each other, but with a greater understanding of what’s going on behind the scenes, we can develop an enhanced sensitivity to tune into these subtle processes a little more!

Hi lovely human! I'd love for you to try out this delightful firey flow in my Online Studio: Firefly Flow.

Breath is the force that orchestrates the whole symphony. It animates us from the moment we arrive until the moment we transition, is with us every step on our journey here. When we think of breathing we might think of the nose, mouth, trachea diaphragm and lungs. But the actual full process involves the entire body AND there are so many more characters involved in the amazing process of breathing!  

Oxygen takes an epic journey through our body!

I am simply fascinated by this process! And there is so much more that happens after Oxygen’s initial journey. I will send you another love note next week.  

I hope you enjoy the video and it awakens some new connections to inspiration for you!



  1. Hi Meghan

    I just wanted you to know I had a workplace accident recently and fractured my 9th and 10th rib on my right side. My doctor mentioned that breathing exercises would be the most important thing to do over the next 5 to 6 weeks.

    I’ve revisited the first three classes in your Pure Breath series on the ALO platform. Wow! I have developed a whole new awareness to back-body breathing which will change my yoga practice totally when I’m mobile again. Im literally learning to breathe and these classes have been so helpful while I’m recovering.

    Thank you.


    Please come and visit Australia and teach us to move.


    1. Dear Matt,

      I’m very sorry to hear about your accident and trauma and hope you’ll recover fast and smoothly!!!
