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.
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.
“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!
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.
