This breathwork practice is an active technique that involves you lying down or sitting up, breathing with strong 2-part inhales through the mouth or the nose and followed more passive exhales. If you’ve ever seen or practiced Wim Hof breathing, there are some similarities to this style of breathwork. This is a very rhythmic pattern of breathing that we practice to uplifting music which can help keep the pace. The music will be streamed by us so no worries about having access to Spotify etc. We highly recommend listening via headphones for a really immersive experience!
This technique is not suitable during pregnancy, if you are prone to seizures or if you are currently living with high blood pressure.

The benefits of a regular breath work are vast, especially when practiced over a long period of time. These can include:

PHYSICALLY
• Strengthens Lungs & Cardiovascular System
• Boosts Energy, Focus & Performance
• Supports Digestion & Metabolism
• Promotes Better Sleep
• Reduces Acidity in the Blood to Decrease Inflammation

MENTALLY
• Supports a more Positive Stress Response & how we Respond to Challenges
• Increases Willpower & Develops Coping Strategies
• Improves Mental Health & Experience Happier Times
• Acts as an Active Meditation for Busy (Chaotic) Minds
• Creates a Mind-Body Connection to feel more Present
This is just a short list so there are many more positive results that people have reported from regularly practicing an Active Breathwork Technique and some can be felt during and straight after a session!

TO PREPARE and FAQ:
• You can practice different lying down and seated positions to see what suits you best. Support such as cushions, walls, blankets are key to supporting the lungs.
• Don’t worry if you have a cold. You can still practice – you might have to use the mouth breath rather than the nose but you may find it helps to clear sinuses quicker.
• It is an energising breath practice so best done in the morning but it can be a great afternoon pick up if morning sessions don’t work for you – just let us know you would like the recording
• The most common side-effects during practice are tingling, feeling light- headed & dizziness so that is the main reason we sit or lay down. These are very temporary sensations that will disappear as soon as you stop the technique. There can also be changes in body temperature and heady/euphoric moments too that can be unsettling the first few times.
