TRANSFORMATIONAL BREATH SESSIONS
Transformational Breath® is a simple diaphragmatic breathing technique that helps to unlock the full potential of the respiratory system. Breathing seems so ordinary that many of us are not aware that full correct breathing has such a huge impact on our physical and emotional health. Unfortunately, 70% of us don’t use our own breath to full capacity, meaning less energy for our cells and higher chances of physical, mental and emotional blockages. The ideal breath creates a healthy environment for all processes within our bodies, consequently bringing us emotional balance and harmony to our lives.
What our sessions are like
You will be invited to lie down in a comfortable space and to breathe normally.
A breathing facilitator will observe where your breath goes first, how much time is spent inhaling compared to exhaling, and where it pauses or is blocked.
They will also use other ‘tools’, including adjusting the position of the body, gentle hands-on pressure, sound, movement, and positive affirmations. This will help the breath to flow into those restricted areas.
You may feel a number of different sensations, such as a dry mouth, tingling, numbness, a change in temperature, or emotional release.
Each breathing session is unique, so it’s best to come with an open mind and not to have a specific expectation. As feelings, thoughts, and physical sensations arise during breathing session, allow yourself to breathe into those emotions to integrate them.
Together we will work towards re-training your body to breathe naturally, with a fully connected diaphragmatic breath for physical and emotional well-being.
TRANSFORMATIONAL BREATH BENEFITS
The transformational breath session focuses on three main areas – increasing physical wellbeing, improving mental and emotional states, and spiritual expansion.
Transformational breath has been shown to reduce stress, fear and worry. It may help with eating disorders and to temper addictions. Each session leads to deep relaxation and may improve your sleep pattern, increase oxygenation throughout the body and energy levels. It may also help with respiratory ailments, headaches, asthma, psychosomatic illnesses, and anaerobic diseases as well as many other conditions.
Transformational breath may improve your mental & emotional wellbeing and quality of life by increasing your awareness of self-sabotaging behaviours and thought patterns, clearing away past traumas, depression and so boosting your self-esteem and confidence.
Using these breathing techniques, clients can also experience deeper meditative states, deeper connection with others and inner wisdom, and a fuller expression of loving and joyful emotions.
THE LIFE-CHANGING POWER OF YOGA
Our yoga classes focus mainly on pranayama breathing techniques, which can have a profoundly healing, cleansing, and calming effect on both body and mind.
One way yoga encourages transformation is by helping you to shift patterns you’ve developed over time – patterns that may be unhealthy. When you put your body into a pose that is new to you and stick with it, you learn how to take a new shape. Taking this new shape with your body can teach you how to take a new shape with your mind.
The mind-body healing benefits of Pranayama Yoga
Pranayama is derived from two words, Prana (life force) and Yama (control).
Deep breathing techniques increase oxygenation and energy levels throughout the body as the abdominal muscles and diaphragm are engaged and more air is exchanged in lower lungs.
Deep breath leads to deep relaxation, stimulates calmness, teaches how to quiet the mind and slow down emotions, evokes happiness and positively balances your emotional state.
Each session has a significant impact on stress reduction, treats depression, asthma, anxiety and post traumatic disorders.
Yogic breathing practices promote weight loss as it increases the production of the hormone leptin that signals the brain to constrain hunger.
