WHAT IS BREATHWORK?
Breathwork in its simplest definition is deep breathing into the body.
It is a great way to deeply connect with your body and yourself.
There are many breathwork modalities aimed for different purposes. The one I use in my groupwork or 1-1 sessions is continuous breathing into belly, in from the mouth, out from the mouth with no pause between breaths. This type of breathwork drops you into your body, and brings up any past unprocessed emotions from the past to be processed.
You might not allow yourself to cry, especially amongst men, there could be a shame around crying. Maybe you grew up in a household, you were told to stop crying so you learnt to push sadness under the carpet whenever it came up. Or maybe you learnt to supress your anger. What happens is, anything you’re not allowing yourself to feel in the moment, your body remembers. It has its own incredible intelligence. It stores these emotions and energetical blocks to be released when it feels safe to release.
Group breathwork journeys and 1-1 sessions are spaces where you feel safe and held to go into the wounds from the past to feel them fully in order to let them go.
In the 1-1 breathwork sessions, through movement, breathwork, emotional release, you have an opportunity to release tension and trauma in the body so you can feel free, empowered and yourself again.
These sessions are great to get out of the head and come back to the body. The more you make this shift, you remember what it feels like. It becomes a new pathway you can follow and come back to with ease on your own after practice.
If you experience:
Living in your head
Being weighed down by work and life
Feeling responsible for others
Then, breathwork is a great tool for you to feel, process anything that needs to be released leaving you feeling calm, grounded and free.
What you may experience from doing breathwork:
Feeling of expansion and lightness
More compassion for self
Letting go of the past
Deeper connection with self

I run monthly breathwork workshops called “Freedom Through Breath”, which can be found below.
