THE WORKSHOP
Learn how to ‘breathe with purpose’ in this uniquely powerful and moving 2-hour Breathwork, Reiki and Meditation workshop (held in English). Breathwork is the latest self-improvement tool for anyone who wants to create more balance and harmony in their body and mind. This workshop is for you if you want to release stress, increase physical performance and/or just simply live better. 

The first hour of this workshop begins calmly with meditations, guided breathing exercises and discussions around a central theme, Reiki and breathing. Each workshop has a different “surprise” theme. I’ll provide paper and pen for our written exercises, but please bring a notebook if you’d like to take more notes.

The second hour is about combining the “theme of the day” with the Breathwork. I’ll begin by explaining the Two-Stage Pranayama technique (also called an ‘Active Meditation’ or ‘Conscious Connected Breathing’) along with what you can expect. Then the energy increases in the second hour when I’ll explain the technique and the Breathwork begins. It’s important to know that this is not a relaxing breathing technique. It is energizing, challenging and powerful and can be physically, emotionally and mentally intense. You’ll lie on the floor for 30 minutes of active breathing and 15 minutes of complete relaxation. And all to an incredible musical playlist as I guide and hold the space for you. 

Breathwork is purely experiential and no two sessions are alike. Each person has a different experience, so it’s difficult to describe. But one thing is guaranteed, you’ll feel completely different than how you felt when you came in. Be prepared for some big physical and also emotional shifts.

Mixing Reiki with Breathwork, this is a powerful workshop for exploration, discovery, healing, and personal growth. Working with the breath enables you to take better care of yourself and release beliefs and patterns that no longer serve you. Most people leave breathwork sessions feeling clearer, calmer, more content and relaxed. 

Whether you’re a beginner or a more experienced yogi, I’ll make sure you feel comfortable so you can challenge yourself safely. I hope my classes encourage more awareness and help you to connect more mindfully with your bodies, your relations and your environment. I hope you’ll keep coming back for more, the more you practice Breathwork, the more changes you’ll see show up in your life.

BREATHWORK IS NOT ADVISED FOR CERTAIN PEOPLE
Two-Stage Breathwork can lead to an intense physical and emotional release. This technique can be compared to a high intensity workout. If your doctor has advised you not to engage in this type of activity, contact me directly, so I can give you a modified breathing technique to do. After talking, we might realize that you can do it, but you just have to slow down and I'll be there to watch you. If in doubt, consult your doctor.

If you do try this breathing technique and experience heart palpitations, dizziness, nausea, or tingling in your lips, all you have to do is stop the Breathwork through your mouth and go back to nasal breathing. It’s pretty easy to get off the ride.

Please consult your doctor or speak to me ahead of time if you have any of the following…

  • History of cardiovascular disease, including angina or heart attack, high blood pressure, glaucoma, retinal detachment, osteoporosis.

  • Significant recent physical injuries or surgery.

  • Severe mental illness, seizure disorders or if you’re using major medications.

  • Personal or family history of aneurysms.

  • Pregnant.

  • Asthma. Bring inhaler and let me know ahead of time.
