I know how to breathe…
That is what I hear from people when I say the word Breathwork. They are usually kidding around, but there is a part of them that is a bit confused…and curious. Most people don’t know what Breathwork really is, and they are doing themselves a disservice by not learning about it. I continue to practice and teach others how to reduce stress and anxiety with Breathwork. Helping others to practice this technique, in conjunction with coaching produces significant results!
Breathwork in your Recovery
Breathwork can be performed in a variety of ways and one of these methods utilizes “circular breathing”, where you only breathe through your mouth. Some call it Holotropic Breathwork, or Shamanic Breathwork, but because of the modernization of techniques and styles, it really is a style within itself. Breathwork can be done in a group setting, with individuals and with couples.
This particular method of Breathwork is very relaxing and it can be used as a form of meditation. It also helps release stress and tension being held in the body which can be extremely therapeutic. Emotional pain from the past can come to the surface in this process, and that is where healing often takes place. This healing is the impetus for profound personal transformation.
The Origin of Breathwork
Breathwork has been around for thousands of years, in various forms. Recently, it has become more modernized, but the technique itself is derived from Pranayama breathing. Pranayama is the practice of controlling breath, which is our vital life source, or Prana. Over time people have developed different styles and techniques to fit their practice and teach others, and have come up with different names for it.Contact Us
