Discovering the power of the breath through Conscious Connected Breathing


This type of breath work relies on conscious breathing where you are focussing solely on the breath, with no pauses between the inhale and the exhale. This is the same connected breathing that we do as babies and young children. 
 

Gentle connected breathing allows us to release blockages from the buildup of stress and tension stored in the body. It can help you:

  • relax

  • manage physical and emotional pain

  • support a deeper connection to your body

  • assist with energy, general wellbeing and peace of mind


Sessions are guided and take up to 2 hours. 


Can be done individually, with partners, or in small groups.

Any life event which causes significant physical and/or emotional injury and distress, in which the person powerfully experiences being overwhelmed, helpless, or trapped, can become a traumatic experience.

 

Using Brainspotting, people are able to process and reintergrate  traumatic experiences non-directly allowing the bodies natural homeostasis to process the event on a subconscious level both physically and mentally.

Resilience can be defined as the capacity to prepare for, recover from and adapt in the face of stress, challenge or adversity. Resilience could be compared to the amount of energy that one has stored in their inner-battery. This would be the energy that is available to use in a number of life situations; physically, mentally and emotionally. Through the development of resilience, one’s capacity to think clearly, remain calm, and manage emotional states is greatly enhanced. Over-reacting is minimised and one is able to maintain composure even in times of affliction, tribulation, and crisis.
