About the event

About this Event:

Join us, learn and practice coherent breathing   and Pranayama (yogic breathing) in the tranquil and spacious ZEN studios. 

For Bookings please go the Eventbrite here.

This workshop comes with an open invitation to breathe and re-balance. Tap into the energy inherent in the auric field and sustain yourself during this winter.  Feel the positive outcome of prana, the vital life force energy drawn from a few energizing yogic breathing exercises, all of which are especially designed as a warm up to the main part of the workshop.

Coherent breathing (also known as resonance breathwork) is a simple, soothing and yet life changing breathing style. It is thenasal breath practice to learn more about and if you choose to, hone each  and everyday. James Nestor, in The New Science of A Lost Art, describes it as: “A calming practice that places the heart, lungs and circulation into a state of coherence, where the systems of the body are working at peak efficiency. There is no more essential technique and none more basic.”

Learn how to become ‘breath aware’ as you go about your day whether you’re at home, at work or out socializing. Join us and breath to specially curated music attuned to 5 breaths per minute.

What to expect

We begin the workshop with a short pranayama section, delivered as a three-part breath practice. You’ll be guided to notice your breathing while lying down as well as upright and in motion. Stress and poor posture can create physical and energetic blockages in our bodies, often leading to shallow or stilted breathing. Over time, we can develop unconscious breathing patterns which restrict the flow of our breath and vital flow (prana or qi). Kanwal will guide you through some simple breathing exercises to support the life energy to flow more freely through the body, helping us to be more energized.

Please note, prior yogic breathing is not necessary for this part of the workshop.

The main part of the workshop involves coherent breathing which begins with a short introduction to help you understand the benefits of slow, rhythmic and nasal breathing. After a few warm up breathing exercises to help you into ease into slow breathing,  Davel will guide you to breathe coherently to a specially curated music attuned to 5 breaths per minute. This aspect of the breathwork is very different from other sound-related breathwork and is designed to help slow breathing. 1 in 10 people struggle to breathe slowly and diaphragmatically. Learn more about yourself, your breath pattern and the ways in which you can easily adjust the pace and rhythm of the breath.
