Proper breathing is crucial to our physical and mental health. Our breath gives the oxygen that our body needs to live. As normal as it is, our breath is affected whenever we are stressed out emotionally or physically. This is where breathwork practices are truly helpful.

What is breathwork?

Breathwork happens when we modulate our breath consciously in order for us to achieve the results that we are aiming for. 

Guided breathwork is becoming more and more popular today as most of us are now living a life focused on wellness and health. However, this practice is not something new, all around the world people have been practicing breathing techniques for thousands of years now.

Some breathwork practices are rooted in ancient traditions, some others, have been reshaped through scientific research.

Transcendental or Holotropic Breathwork

Transcendental or holotropic breathwork are powerful tools for self-exploration and healing that integrate insights from various practices including psychology, music therapy, anthropology and Eastern spiritual practices. Anyone who is seeking healing for past issues,  or psychosomatic blockages may benefit from these practices. It would also benefit those who are seeking insight, guidance or access to intuition and creativity.

Transcendental or holotropic breathwork combines accelerated breathing and sensory immersion with a specially designed musical journey. The aim is to access insight and healing in non-ordinary/expanded states of consciousness. With the eyes closed and comfortably lying on a mat under a specialist supervision, each person uses their own breathing supported by musical mix to enter a non-ordinary state of consciousness and activate our natural healing process. The experience is entirely internal and largely non-verbal  without interventions.

Entering a non-ordinary state of consciousness, in this context, activates the natural inner healing process, generating experiences unique to each person for that particular time and place. Breathers often experience recurring themes, but no two breathwork sessions are ever the same.

Each Transcendental Breathwork session starts with a breath assessment and is followed by a two steps integration process to get the best out of the experience.

Session 4 Energy management Breathwork

Our level of energy and the way we manage it are directly linked to our stress level.

After a review of the key factors for best energy management, you will learn and practice a breathwork technique common to Buddhist and Taoist traditions to collect, store and move Chi energy through the three main energy centers (Dan tians) restoring its natural flow.

Emotional & Stress Release Breathwork (ESRB)  

Most of our blockages are stored in the subconscious mind, which is by nature very difficult to reach as we are not conscious of it. This breathwork practice is very efficient in weakening the barrier between the conscious and the subconscious mind. It gives you access to stored stress, blocked emotions and childhood memories.

In this session you will be guided along the breathing process while immersed in an evocative musical journey to help you dive in an expanded state where the conscious-subconscious process will take place. 

Once the subconscious material is showing up we can process and integrate it in the conscious mind, clearing its negative influence on our behavior, releasing tensions and generating new positive outcomes.

Cold Therapy

Meaning your response to other types of stressors (mental, physical, emotional) will also be positively impacted.
