BREATH OF LIFE RETREAT
BREATH OF LIFE RETREAT
THURSDAY 2ND – SATURDAY 4TH DECEMBER, 2021
One of the keys to your health, happiness, and overall wellbeing lies in the most simple and natural way of balancing yourself – the way you breathe.
Taking a breath is central to the human experience: it’s the first, and the last, thing you’ll ever do. It happens with and without voluntary control. For these reasons and more perhaps, most meditative and movement traditions have placed great importance on coming to know one’s own breathing. Breathwork is the most powerful physical, emotional and psychological healing mechanism yet we rarely give it more than a passing thought.
On this Breath of Life Retreat, come and experience a transformative process of self-discovery, inner healing and growth through the breath & body. Our workshops and exercises are all experiential in nature and designed for deeper learning. The experience is intended to help you walk away with a self-care tool kit and a sustainable way of weaving breath work into your daily life. It is also great way for you to hit the ‘reset’ button; learning how to release the stress and tension that you didn’t even realise you are holding onto. So whether you’re unsure how your lungs get filled, or you’re curious about what happens to the autonomic nervous system with each breath, or simply wanting to learn how to release tight shoulders and free up your diaphragm – this retreat is perfect for you.
Breath of Life Retreat is a doorway into your body’s wisdom and health. Through this immersive, hands-on experience, you will definitely walk away with more vitality, ease and healing.
