Breathwork & Meditation
For those of you who practise meditation such as anapana sati or pranayama, you will already understand how closely correlated the breath is to our thoughts and emotions. Or just remember back to the last time you were excited or angry and how your breathing reflected this state.
The breath acts as a bridge between the conscious mind and the unconscious as is evident when you consider how you are able to both control your breathing and continue to breathe without thinking about it even during sleep. The principle of breathwork for emotional release is based on the tenet that there is a direct connection between your mental well being and your physical health and that the key to unlocking old wounds, traumas and painful memories that get stored in the physical body is through the breath.
During the first session, you are shown a breathwork technique known as re-birthing breathwork in which you learn to connect your breath without so that there are no pauses between the inhalation and exhalation. You then continue this breathing technique, usually lying down until you find your own rhythm with the breath bringing to the surface what needs to be expressed and cleared. Sometimes, past memories can surface which may be challenging for you, but as it's your own innate intelligence through your own breath at work, it can all be readily integrated.
