Conscious Connected Breathwork - The Medicine of Breathing
What is Conscious Connected Breathwork?
Conscious Connected Breathwork is a dynamic breathing technique, which helps to activate and recalibrate the nervous system and bring it back into balance if we have been 'thrown out of kilter' by the effects of past events. It rapidly oxygenates the body. and is an excellent way to release and express emotion in a safely held environment.
It is used for self-healing and transformation. It is a tool which, particularly when practiced over a series of sessions enables us to become more 'present' in our bodies, hearts and minds, as we learn new ways of how to embrace the changes in life as and when they occur.
Every breathwork session is different, basically your own body and the power of your own breath has the wisdom to show you what you need in any given moment. In one session you may feel light and ecstatic, in another you may eellike nothing is happening, and perhaps in a different session you may tap into something else, perhaps a feeling which may be less than comfortable. All of this is normal, as the medicine of the breath begins to work at its own rhythm. You are always in charge of the pace of the work. Your body knows exactly what it needs.
A breathwork session holds a safe container for you to experience the many different parts of yourself in order to access a deeper understanding of who you are.
The technique is generally practiced with an open mouth, although on some occasions it is more appropriate to breathe through the nose, which are explained during the session).
The inhalation is active
The exhalation is passive
There is no pause between breaths.
The focus is on remaining consciously connected to the breath in the body throughout the breathwork session.

In a typical Conscious Connected Breathwork session, we include a framing of the breathwork process,
