In this first class you will learn about the 2-stage Pranayama Breathwork meditation, which is one of the foundational tools of the work. You will learn why the breath is used the way it is in clearing your mind and body of stuck energy. Exercises and partnered breakout sessions within the class are used to develop your connection to intuition, boost confidence around your gifts and talents to live freely and open the heart to the power of self-love. I’m honored to be co-teaching it once again with Nathaniel Hodder-Shipp!
The Level 1 class includes guidance with all of David Elliott’s healing tools and extensive discussion about the work, the breath and what it is to heal yourself and others. This class is the first of four levels that certify you to work with others and lead Breathwork circles (ideally all four levels would be completed before leading groups). You will be able to lead your own one-on-one Breathwork sessions following this class.
Required reading before class: Healing and The Reluctant Healer both by David Elliott.
