Join us in exploring the tremendous beauty, power, and healing potential of the breath. We will slow down in wonder and meet the breath . . . both in stillness and movement . . . visiting weakened or traumatized areas to find back their true power and healing, and discover how we can become more fully ‘alive’.

The Thursday and Sunday sessions will have the same themes but evolve differently (see description below). Designed so that students can participate in either series or deepen their explorations with both (at a discounted rate)

Description

From the moment we are born and until death, we are in a constant and intimate relationship with our breath. Much of the time we are unaware of this most precious gift, yet the manner in which we receive and respond to it affects our whole life.
The concept of receiving the breath as an honored guest or beloved friend can deepen our relationship into an ever unfolding dance of beauty and love, bringing more light and understanding back into our lives.
Wherever we bring full awareness to the body, our breath goes with us, helping to undo tight muscles and tension, releasing and clearing stuck or fearful holding patterns, and thus creating freedom to move and function more as we were designed to do. We shall explore ways through intuitive movement to open up inner space, empowering and creating a safe place to return to inside.
The breath is alive and eager to meet us in ever more subtle ways. There may come a time in deep Savasana where you no longer feel your physical boundaries, as body and breath have absorbed each other . . . flowing together like a river into the light!

 

Week 1
MEETING THE BREATH

Who is this breath?
Is it female, male or otherwise?  How do we sense, feel, receive it?
Can we experience our breath as it flows and touches different places in the body?
It is called the ‘Breath of Life’.
So let’s leave CONTROL behind and explore a little of what this means to you personally and discover how we become more fully ‘alive’ as we slow down in wonder and meet the breath . . . both in stillness and in movement.

Week 2
THE  POWER  AND  HEALING  POTENTIAL OF THE  BREATH

Just as wind can change from a gentle breeze to a tornado, the breath experience may manifest in as many ways as the weather! Each one reveals a unique ‘inner climate’ and emotion that leads to balance, release, and healing.
We shall ‘unravel’ some of these to understand the origin of Yogic terms such as Bhastrika, Kumbhaka, and others.

Through inner awareness and movement we can visit weakened or traumatized areas with the breath to find back their true power and healing.

Week 3
“TWO IS ONE AND ONE IS TWO”!

This is a fun and enlightening exploration of breath and our unique differences between the Left and Right sides of the body.    
Life is all about connecting and our ‘underground internal channels’ of energy are vital if we want to  feel fully alive! Through lack of use, trauma, injury, and habit, some of these channels become blocked and ultimately cause us problems or even disease.
Of course there are natural and normal differences in our two sides, but clearing channels  opens and keeps the energy flowing through the whole body, and may bring a sparkle to your eyes!
Then the process of Nadi Shodhana (Alternate Nostril breathing) becomes effortless so that there is no need to press your thumb and fingers on your nose!

Week 4
BREATH, THE BELOVED

This is the out-come of all our inner work. Now finally the most intimate and beautiful relationship with breath can slowly unfold. Peace beyond words flows over and through us . . . at first just in glimpses but, as some of you already have surely experienced, seeps into our lives, transforming what seemed impossible.
