The Foundations of Breathwork
During this six-part workshop series you’ll learn various techniques and how each can benefit you. Need more energy? There’s a breathwork practice for that. Feeling anxious or stressed? There’s a breathwork practice for that. Just want to feel better? Guess what...there’s a breathwork practice for that.
Breathwork is a scientifically backed, slightly woo-woo way to optimise your health and increase overall wellbeing. Join breathworker and therapist, Lee, for a deep dive into how you can use various techniques to improve your health, calm your mind and harness your superpower.
All participants will learn at least five breathwork techniques they can use to regulate mood and reduce stress on a daily basis.
What is breathwork? Where did it come from and why is it gaining popularity? A brief introduction to the mechanics of the nervous system and how we can use the breath to tap into it and support overall wellness
Two practical exercises to better acquaint yourself with your breath and for relaxation.
What is the Parasympathetic Nervous System? How can we use the breath to activate the “rest and digest” response? We’ll look deeper into this response and how we can use the breath to harness it in times of stress.
Two practical exercises for calming and relaxing - reducing anxiety and insomnia.
What is the Sympathetic Nervous System? How can we use the breath to activate the “fight or flight” response? We’ll look into yogic Kriya and how the breath can be used to “cleanse.”
Two practical exercises for energizing, focus and building “fire in the belly”.
How can breathwork impact and improve your overall homeostasis? How can regulating your breath have an impact on your overall health and immunity?
One practical exercise for alkalizing the blood and improving resilience and overall stress response.
How can breathwork be used as therapy? We’ll explore the most modern iterations of breathwork - Holotropic, Rebirthing and Conscious Connected Breath. What are the contraindications to this type of work?
One practical exercise for leading a powerful visualization session using breathwork.
