A few things to think about before the class…
WHAT IS BREATHWORK?
Simply put its an active breathing meditation that gives your brain something to focus on while your physical and emotional bodies release stuck energy. It’s also a tool that allows you access to your feelings and the ability to dialog with them. With discipline and practice, healing emotional response patterns that may have been established in early childhood is possible.
The basis for this self-healing modality founded by my teacher, David Elliott, allows us to cultivate and elevate our ability to deeply love ourselves even when it feels really hard.
There are many different types of breathwork (techniques vs healing) but this particular style is all done breathing through an open mouth while lying down. No previous experience required.
Benefits of Breathwork:
- Relief from stress, depression, anxiety, grief, anger, pain
- Mental clarity
- Renewed energy
- A greater sense of well-being and calm
- Creative hits – lot’s of “ah-hah” moments
- Emotional release in a safe container
- Intuitive messages are often heard and felt
No matter what has drawn you to breathwork, I like for students to imagine it as a spiritual housekeeping practice that offers everything from a light dusting to an intense deep cleaning. Our “stuff” can clog our energy centers, just like a trashcan that has become overly full. It is necessary to take out the garbage on a regular basis otherwise your house will being to smell horrible and a few unwanted houseguests (aka roaches) may settle in. Make sense?
The breath is the most intimate relationship you will ever have. Without the breath there is no life.
