Breathwork - a very active meditation technique. It's medicine for the body mind and soul - if you allow so.
All we actively are doing is breathing. Breathing through the mouth, get lots of oxygen into the blood stream.
Through long and deep breathing old and stagnant energy might release & tension and emotions rising up.
There are 3 stages we are living at: Relaxing (during sleep), Doing (daily lives), Running (when something happens).
Imagine, an animal shakes itself after being attacked (when something traumatic happens like a fight) so after the shaking the body is released of the memory it has created and stored. The brain doesn't remember and acts neutral again.
Do we, human beings, do that? No! We keep it in the body and store it somewhere deep down.
Breathwork is just a wonderful tool to release what has been stored - over years and lifetimes.
I believe in Karma, and so all what we have creat(ed), has to be moved into harmony.
Sometimes Breathwork is just to crack one open and realize we are much more than our body and our mind tells us.
Sometimes it needs many sessions to come into feeling, because it would be too painful to be vulnerable, so we build a wall around the heart.
These patterns and walls have to be cracked open. If there is lots of resistance, there is no chance in that moment - then it might be some other way for you.
If you feel comfortable and cozy in a group, i welcome you to join one of these sessions. I also welcome you if you do not feel comfortable. A good sign of being on the path of your intuition is, doing something where you do not feel comfortable yet.
A group session is very powerful.
We start the session with a welcoming circle usually, a moment to arrive in silence and just watching what's happening within your body, your heart and your emotional world. To really arrive in the group, the room, the moment and the body, we move through shaking, dancing, playing or whatever is needed at the moment. Connecting with ourselves and the group. After this arriving and connecting we are going over to the connected breathing for about an hour.
In a groupsession you will breathe an hour'ish through the mouth, in and out. Through all the oxygen you're breathing in, your blood will get very alkaline, so tension overall in the body has no longer the chance to stay. It might get unconfortable or you will feel pain during the transformation, but this energy is only moving then. It will pass. It might feel that you are super relaxed, joyful or full of peace. here is very often stored memories in tension, so it's possible that emotions are coming to the surface and you start crying, shouting, shaking, vibrating, being angry - whatever comes, you are ready to face that, the things you are not ready to handle will not come to the surface.
During the session i will simply watch your breath and remind you about it.
Sometimes i may help you with some touches to breathe or to move energy. May i breathe with you a while or i just say something in the group, maybe it resonates with you right then.
Coming to the end of the mouth-breathing, there will be a looong shavasana to relax and again to move, what has to be re-moved within. You will be back at your normal nose breathing to fully relax.
When everyone is ready to come back into the outer world, we will create a sharing circle and we are creating that space to understand and see each other.
A little snack and you are welcome to slowly enter the outer world again.
Maybe with insights or a new sight.
