From the very first session, breath meditation will tend to your relationship with your breath. Some say the experience of breath meditation is akin to coming home to a familiar and serene place that you didn’t even realize you missed or longed for.
Through a gently guided session, you will learn to activate, utilize, and support the body’s innate mechanisms of self-healing; soothing, calming, and toning the nervous system, while relaxing and integrating the body and the mind. With regular practice the subtle energy body will become activated, bringing a deeper and prolonged sense of mental, emotional, and physical balance, health, and vitality.
A SANCTUARY WHERE YOU WILL BUILD A STRONG
LASTING RELATIONSHIP WITH THE BREATH
The Breathing Room is a sacred space for you to reconnect with the most basic and powerful part of yourself, your own breath.
While lying down comfortably, with breath as your guide an experienced practitioner will facilitate a journey through the body's inner landscape to promote relaxation.
The Breathing Room is a place of safety where you can release all fear and judgment, a place to just be with yourself and your breath, giving it the attention it needs to relax and open, to purify the prana and the body.
You'll be guided to both observe the breath as a compassionate witness and work with the breath, altering and strengthening its patterns and flows utilizing mainly yin (passive, receptive, etc.) techniques.
The Breathing Room is a place of sacred surrender, a place of devotion, of handing yourself over to Silence, a place to discover the power of The Space Between, and a place to uncover what your body and breath is trying to tell you about you.
Utilizing mindfulness techniques and ancient yogic practices you'll be guided into the still point of the breath; the place of no time, no space, and most of all no stress.
In the breathing room, you’ll learn to witness and retrain the breath, observe current breathing patterns, develop proper breathing habits, and dissolve dysfunctional modes of breathing. Over time, you’ll develop a new language that reflects the relationship you've developed with the breath, begin to identify the stressors that inhibit the breath, begin to free the body from the effects of stress, and open the breathing space in the body.
When we breathe properly, with every breath we are sending vital life energy (prana, qi, chi, etc.) to every part of the body, it is our most vital nourishment.
WHERE BREATH GOES~ENERGY FLOWS
WHERE ENERGY FLOWS~BLOOD GOES
WHERE BLOOD GOES~TOXINS ARE REMOVED AND
NOURISHMENT IS DELIVERED
Breath Meditation calms and tones the vagus nerve soothing the sympathetic "Fight, Flight, Freeze, Fawn" nervous response, activating the parasympathetic nervous "Rest & Digest" system. Breath meditation also integrates the left and right sides of the brain promoting 'whole brain' functioning.
When the brain and nervous system come into balance, the mind is freed of rumination and negative thought patterns. The mind will then respond in kind with clarity of thought, increased creativity, and InSpired thinking.
A pattern of deeper, slower breathing nourishes the internal organs and dilates the blood vessels, relaxing tense muscles and reducing blood pressure. Meanwhile, the Rest & Digest system allows the body to sleep better, digest food more completely, heal injuries, and process memories more effectively.
Breath works intimately with the body's energy systems. Eastern medicine refer to this energy as Prana, Qi, or Chi. As we move and open the breathing space, the body's energy via its innate healing capacity becomes unblocked, strengthened, and more balanced.
Breath meditation is grounded in mindfulness and self-compassion practices. When combined with a balanced nervous system, improved sleep and freed energy, our coping skills improve and we are able to be less imprisoned by our thoughts and less entangled in our emotions.
The gentle work of integrating spirit, breath, and body provides a safe internal place for the heart to open and meet the emotions of any situation. As we transcend suppressed emotions we arrive deeply into the present moment where we find greater resilience.
