How are you breathing?
Check with yourself right now.
Close your eyes, bring your attention into your body.
Where are you breathing? Is your breath flowing, free easy, pleasurable?
Are you filled with the tingling of energy rushing through your body in a vibrant loop?
Or do you find it hard even to stop for a few minutes to do this little exercise?
Most of us breathe in a shallow manner, engaging only the chest, inhaling and exhaling rapidly to compensate for the lack of expansion of our lungs, often holding our breath without being aware of doing it. This leads to hyperventilation and a permanent state of tension which is the cause of a host of symptoms often mistakenly diagnosed as illnesses. We are not getting the vital nourishment that comes with the ebb and flow of free breath, we lose touch with our bodies and we stop feeling.
We end up leading half-lives, ruled by our minds.
I used to hold my breath all the time because of stress. It took the conscious decision to look into myself and find peace for my life to change.
I believe no personal development journey can be accomplished without breathwork. Breathwork is the ultimate tool to assess how integrated your inner child is, whether you have processed your trauma, dealt with the emotions from your past, whether your unconscious is still ruling your decisions and what work still needs to be done to process inherited or conditioned patterns.
I am certified in a form of breathwork that is therapeutic in essence and which used to be called rebirthing in the 1970s. It is more yin than the currently fashionable forms of breathwork which involve strong dynamic breathing techniques and make for an enjoyable experience but rarely change your life in depth.
I do one-on-one sessions in which I accompany you. You set an intention, you get to breathe consciously and to reconnect with your body. Energy blockages are revealed, tensions and emotions gently released, and the breakthroughs accessed during the sessions gradually start to translate into your life as deep self-knowing, a sense of presence, an awareness of what has been holding you from creating the life you desire. The way you breathe on a daily basis start to shift naturally.
The beauty of breathwork lies in its simplicity. Embodiment is key.
Come and try breathing with me!
I highly recommend this form of breathwork for teenagers, to release the stress from school and exams. It is a wonderful skill to learn for life.
One caveat: breathwork is not for you if you suffer from epilepsy, severe asthma or if you have had recent surgery.
