What is breathwork ?
Breathwork is a rapidly growing modality in health and wellness and many forms of breathwork techniques exist. Conscious connected breathwork is an active & embodied breathing practice that allows you to enter a different state of awareness by rapidly charging the body with oxygen. This allows you to access those parts of the body & soul where trauma may be stored, releasing tension in a safe and supported way. You remain fully in control of your own process at all times, guided by your skilled and informed facilitator. The breathing is deep and connected ,meaning there is no pause between inhalations & exhalations. This type of breathing stimulates the sympathetic nervous system’s fight/flight/freeze response, which allows us to access the parts where trauma is held, allowing us to release tension.
Who could benefit from breathwork ?
CCB may offer the following health benefits:
- Relief from stress & anxiety through breath/body awareness
- Improved sleep & wellbeing
- Releasing old trauma
- A sense of personal empowerment
- Freedom from limiting beliefs
We breathe together for around 40 – 45 mins to music, the rest of the time will be for discussion, feedback and framing the session.
Please read the attached waiver as there are some contra-indications to breathing in this way – this does not mean you can’t take part, however I will show you how to modify your practice.
You will need headphones and a quiet space to lie down, undisturbed for an hour. I would suggest having some water, a blanket and journal & pen close to hand.
