A 4 week series that will introduce you to the power of Presence Breath- an invigorating, active breathing practice that facilitates a person’s own healing abilities through the use of movement and sound therapy, as well as a connected, rhythmic breath. During this series we will understand and explore the benefits and setbacks of stress, what happens within the body and mind and how we can use our breathing patterns as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques to conquer your thoughts. Lastly, you will leave refreshed, grounded, and ready to implement your own Self-Care plan.
Each day we meet, we will have a group discussion, and then practice Presence Breath techniques so that by the end of the workshop you can begin your own practice at home. During the Presence Breath practice, you can expect energizing music to be playing while you are laying down (sitting if that is more comfortable for you) with eyes closed, breathing through your mouth in an open, connected, rhythmic pattern while the facilitator coaches you via positive affirmations and hands on manipulation/ pressure on particularly tense areas. This is a very unique and profound experience, so come open and ready to receive!
No previous breathwork experience is needed – just bring yourself, water (snack if desired), and wear comfortable clothing. A handbook, writing and art supplies will be provided.
