What is Breathwork? Breathwork is conscious connected breathing, allowing us to restore our connection to our life force and gives us the opportunity to go within ourselves and find the truth of who we are. Our body is an archive and stores many memories & stories within us, and with the use of breathwork we can tap into these places that other therapies cannot. It is an extremely powerful approach to self-exploration. Our breath is medicine that we have readily available to use, there is nothing more important than our breath. Each experience is unique to the individual's life situations and intentions. The results can include healing on many levels, physical, emotional and spiritual.

How Does a Breathwork Session Work? Prior to your session we will go over any intentions you may have going into your breathwork. The conscious breathing session is usually done lying down comfortably on your back with blankets and pillows provided, however feels best to you. With your practitioner as your guide, you will be directed on how to develop connected breathing, this is where each breath (in & out) is connected to the last. There are no pauses or gaps between the breaths. The inhale turns into the exhale, and the exhale merges with the inhale. The experience is supported by music, which begins with drumming or similar ‘driving’ music, reaches an emotional crescendo, transitions to ‘heart’ music, and finishes with meditative music. At the end of the session you will be guided to total groundedness followed by plenty of water, and discussion time with the practitioner about your experience.
