What is breathwork ?

Breathwork is a rapidly growing modality in health and wellness and many forms of breathwork techniques exist. Conscious connected breathwork is an active & embodied breathing practice that allows you to enter a different state of awareness by rapidly charging the body with oxygen. This allows you to access those parts of the body & soul where trauma may be stored, releasing tension in a safe and supported way. You remain fully in control of your own process at all times, guided by your skilled and informed facilitator. The breathing is deep and connected ,meaning there is no pause between inhalations & exhalations. This type of breathing stimulates the sympathetic nervous system’s fight/flight/freeze response, which allows us to access the parts where trauma is held, allowing us to release tension.

CCB may offer the following health benefits:

  • Relief from stress & anxiety through breath/body awareness

  • Improved sleep & wellbeing

  • Releasing old trauma

  • A sense of personal empowerment

  • Freedom from limiting beliefs

We breathe together for around 40 – 45 mins to music, the rest of the time will be for discussion, feedback and framing the session.

Please read the attached waiver as there are some contra-indications to breathing in this way – this does not mean you can’t take part, however I will show you how to modify your practice.

If working online, you will need headphones and a quiet space to lie down, undisturbed for an hour. I would suggest having some water, a blanket and journal & pen close to hand.

Waiver

My sessions are open to all and I request that all group participants agree to honour confidentiality in this sacred space.

Please note this breathwork practice is not a substitute for medical advice. If you are affected by any of the following, you should consult your GP or healthcare provider before taking part in the session:

Epilepsy

High or low blood pressure with a history of fainting

Bi-polar disorder, schizophrenia or psychosis

Pre – existing lung disease

Glaucoma or detached retina

Recent surgery

It may still be possible to breathe with us, however, in these cases ,I will recommend a modified breathing practice for you. Please let me know before we begin.

This is a dynamic practice and as such, in reading this waiver, you agree to take personal responsibility for your process. The facilitators cannot be held responsible for any mental, physical or emotional challenges which may arise from this work.

Thank you for taking care of your wellbeing by listening to your body and respecting these guidelines.

Please note that in most cases breathwork is an enjoyable, healing and liberating practice, so don’t let all the necessary health info put you off !
