Breathwork & Yoga Therapy

Do you see the present through the lens of the past?

Does happiness escape you? Breathwork can help you take control, reframe and reorient the course of your life. As a trauma-informed facilitator, it dawns many of us carry around our past, all the times we have been hurt, or we have not been able to express our emotions in the moment.  In essence, we carry unresolved energy.  It plays out in patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviours.  The greater the feeling of safety, the freer we feel to take risks, follow dreams, the deeper the feelings of connection and community with others, the more we appreciate self,  and feel we are contributing to the greater good, the greater the success of the organisation, the relationship, the family, the team, the individual.  Everything is interconnected.

Through breathwork, you wipe that lens clean, redefine the relationship with your past, yourself and others.  You get to create new reference points, to move through victimhood, obstacles, reclaim inner power.  Take the darkness lightly, see how it sheds light in what hold you back, prevents you from living the best version of you.  We have so much judgement around the human experience, often fear the unknown or what we do not understand. Discover how this is all a teacher and pointer to wisdom you hold within.

Many people do not feel they have an adequate support system, do not know how to work on themselves, or manage deeper issues.  Access to awakened breathwork changes things.  It invites you to step back, see every experience has a sacred purpose.  Somatic healing is a holotropic process that assists you to uncover energetic blockages or resistance that are present, holding you back from living the best version of you.  Benefit from individual, couples and group breathwork. We also offer breathwork session packages tailored to your needs.

Shamanic breathwork can assist people in connecting with their inner selves, releasing emotional barriers, and accessing higher realms of consciousness. It's been shown to encourage physical recovery, creativity enhancement, personal, interpersonal growth.  

We recommend that anyone with health issues who is interested in holotropic breathwork consult a medical professional first to see how it may interact with any preexisting conditions, such as:

What’s the difference between yoga and yoga therapy?

Many people think of yoga as exercise. You may join a local yoga studio or fitness center with the goal of improving your strength and flexibility as well as getting a good workout.

A yoga instructor will guide a group class through different yoga poses and practices, often at a fast pace in what’s known as a “flow.” The emphasis is on correct yoga positions or movements.  Yoga instructors have a minimum of 200 hours of training.

 

Someone seeking yoga therapy is looking for help or relief from specific symptoms or health conditions. A yoga therapist will guide you in an individual practice and focus on using various tools of yoga to improve function and reduce stress.

A session will include breathing exercises, physical postures, mindfulness and meditation with emphasis on relieving symptoms, avoiding injury and restoring wellness. Your yoga therapist will provide home practice instructions designed specifically to build a safe and effective self-care routine. The number of sessions you have will depend on your health goals and progress, and it’s usually once or twice a month for a few months.  It can compliment physiotherapy. Yoga therapists have at least 1,000 hours of training.
