What is Breathwork?
Pranayama Breathwork is active meditation and conscious control of your breath which encourages stuck energy (emotions) to move and creates the opportunity for powerful healing to occur. This simple, yet effective technique, restores balance to your body, mind and soul, relieves stress, and helps to activate the subconscious mind. Activating your subconscious in this safe, effective manner is what allows true change to occur in your life by transforming limiting thoughts, beliefs and emotions.
During the process, the repetitive breath helps to neutralize your thoughts, draw more oxygen into the body and stimulate your hypothalamus gland as well as other centers/organs around the body. As the session progresses, the mind, body and ego melt away, and you’re able to engage with yourself on a much deeper, more intrinsic level than you’re used to.
A Breathwork session can be done either online or in-person at our North San Diego location.
Breathwork has changed my life in more ways than I could have imagined. I’ve experimented with many modalities on my path to healing from childhood sexual trauma and breathwork has been an integral part of my healing.
As someone who had blocked out most of my memories of trauma, I needed to find something that allowed my subconscious to feel safe enough to feel these stuck emotions and ultimately release them. My own personal journey has led me to a deep understanding of the mind-body connection as well as how the brain works in connection with trauma. I now know I was given these tools in order to help others in their healing journey.
I’ve used Breathwork to move through many challenges in my life. My first experience with Breathwork allowed me to heal a 20-year old wound by reconnecting and repairing a shattered relationship. The loss of this relationship caused feelings of guilt and judgement. This work allowed me to finally understand and release these feelings, forgive myself, start to mend the relationship and become more whole. This first experience has done more for me than I ever could have imagined.
I regularly use the breath to allow myself to feel more deeply and to release the stresses of everyday life. It’s a tool to help us examine the feelings we’re not able to express through words. Along with regular mediation and other practices, it has become an incredibly valuable tool to break through the hidden patterns (shortcuts) the mind sets up in attempt to keep us safe, but may no longer be serving us.
