Mechanics of Breathing

This explanation of the physiology of breathing shows how our health improves through the conscious connected breathing that we do in transformation Breathwork. Humans need a continuous supply of oxygen for cellular respiration, and they much get rid of excess carbon dioxide, the poisonous wast product of this process. Gas exchange supports this cellular respiration by constantly supplying oxygen and removing carbon dioxide. The oxygen we need is derived from the Earth’s atmosphere, which is 21% oxygen. This oxygen in the air is exchanged in the body by the respiratory surface. In humns, the alveoli in the lungs serve as the surface for gas exchange. Gas exchange in humans can be divided into 5 steps:

  1. Breathing
  2. External Respiration
  3. Gas Transport
  4. Internal Respiration
  5. Cellular Respiration
