Bio respiratory feedback, the best-kept secret of breathwork Our bodies have a system called bio respiratory feedback, the mechanism in the nervous system that affects your breathing patterns. When you experience different emotions, your breathing patterns change.
Angry? - Short, rapid, and very hot breaths.
Maybe you’re sad? - Most people sigh.
