Breathwork Journey Class
Reduce stress & anxiety – increase energy, creativity & joy
Join Christine, a certified Breathwork Practitioner, on a breathwork journey. This is a practice that uses conscious connected breathing, music and guidance to connect you with your body, mind and soul. Benefits include reduced stress and anxiety, increased energy, clarity, joy, and creativity and clearing of suppressed emotions and feelings.
Breathwork is a meditative practice where you take conscious full breaths, breathing in more oxygen and energy into your body, allowing you to feel your feelings and emotions, and releasing toxins and anything you don’t wish to hold on to. In this time of uncertainty and strain, breathwork can support you in managing your emotional and mental health. It is a time where you give yourself your own time, energy and love, and breathe the breath of life into your being.
Her classes will introduce you to breathwork and provide an opportunity to connect with yourself in a space of non-judgement, acceptance and understanding. The 75 minute session consists of an opening meditation, followed by 40 minutes of conscious breathing accompanied by music while lying down where you stay present, tune into your body, and allow feelings to arise. Time at the end is allotted for questions and for you to share your experience if you feel called. No experience is necessary. This is a great introduction to breathing in this way and many people keep it as a weekly practice afterwards.
Notes about this session:
- We will be practicing a Conscious Connected Breath (CCB). Conscious meaning you are aware of your breath and are actively choosing to take each breath. Connected meaning there is no pauses between inhales and exhales, and exhales and inhales. Like a circle where you are either inhaling or exhaling. Usually this breathing style is practiced through your mouth, however you may breathe through your nose if you prefer.
- Please arrive 10 minutes prior to the start of class. Bring your yoga mat and a water bottle and journal if you would like. Wear comfortable clothes. We will have blankets and bolster blocks available for your use.
- Covid – No masks required, mats will be spaced so you will not be breathing too close to anyone else. We sanitize the air before and after classes.
