Breathwork | seeds of intention
For this session we’ll harness the power of the breath to help you ground the nervous system, clear out any lingering debris (or stuffy air from the winter months) and plant seeds of intention for the spring to come.
We’ll begin class in circle with an introduction to the breath and a communal conversation around the theme before diving into the main ingredient, the breath. We’ll close our time together in circle with tea, chocolate and conversation.
WHAT IS BREATHWORK?
This particular style of Breathwork is an active meditation technique that allows you to navigate and tend to your inner terrain by connecting with your breath to calm and ground your nervous system while relieving your mind and body of stuck, stagnant energy — in turn, creating a pathway for both an emotional and somatic release and the creation of new neural pathways.
Through liberating tension, stress and even limiting thought patterns, you’re better able to connect with the innate wisdom within, which can be a strong catalyst for opening your heart to honest self-love, self-healing, and self-acceptance.
Although it’s considered an activating breathwork practice, it has a feminine touch.
