BREATHWORK allows us to restore our connection to our life force – without the BREATH we cannot live and by consciously re-connecting to it we are increasing our attention and awareness and therefore our capacity to live a more full and healthy life.
Long held trauma can often be released in a guided BREATHWORK session, creating more space for you to feel more alive and connected to yourself!
With expanded awareness we are able to see our lives from different points of view, allowing us to actively make more empowered choices. It is not just our brains that archive our journey through life, but our bodies too are left with the imprints of our experiences.
BREATHWORK is a powerful tool for accessing this archive and releasing any memories that might be trapped in the body before they turn into dis-ease or illness.
SHAHMANIC BREATHWORK also aims to enter into a non-ordinary state of consciousness. The goal of this BREATHWORK technique is to “inspire individuals to awaken the shaman within.”
In other words, it seeks to reconnect an individual with their own inner healer. When one is being empowered, wholeness and healing come back into their lives.
SHAHMANIC BREATHWORK combines ancient healing traditions with new methods of healing.
It mixes four elements into its process: There is movement, chakra-attuned music, specific breathing methods, and introspection. Its unique feature is its use of mandala artwork and other modern healing techniques.
Like other BREATHWORK techniques, SHAHMANIC BREATHWORK is often used for post-traumatic stress disorder, stress, and anxiety.
PRANAYAMA is also known as yogic breathing or yoga BREATHWORK.
PRANA means energy, life force, or breath and yama means restraint or control. Putting that together, it means that if we are able to control our BREATH, we will be able to access our life force or energy. The literal definition of PRANAYAMA is “to extend the vital life force” or “BREATH CONTROL”.
In the practice of PRANAYAMA, an individual will undergo a series of breathing exercises which are meant to flush out the bad elements from the body and bring in more oxygen, which will prepare the body for meditation.
Although PRANAYAMA is used in yoga, it is considered a separate practice. The goal of PRANAYAMA is to help cleanse the body and mind and prepare the individual for MEDITATION. It is also practiced in preparation for ASANA.
Practicing PRANAYAMA has several benefits to the body, mind, and heart. It is very helpful in having well-functioning body organs including the lungs, heart, abdomen, kidneys, and pancreas. Aside from that, it also promotes good blood circulation and a healthy digestive system.
PRANAYAMA has been proven as good practice to achieve better mental health. It frees individuals from harmful mental conditions such as anger, depression, greed, money, arrogance, and lasciviousness. It is also often used to treat stress-related disorders.
One very good benefit of PRANAYAMA is its ability to help in achieving a steady mind, strong willpower, and sound judgment. It is also known to relieve the symptoms of asthma as well as aid in weight loss.
ZEN YOGA BREATHWORK
While PRANAYAMA seeks to control the BREATH and bringing in oxygen to the body for MEDITATION, ZEN YOGA BREATHWORK seeks to use the right type of BREATHWORK to be able to control the mind. PRANAYAMA focuses on deep breaths while ZEN YOGA BREATHWORK is more on shallow breathing.
ZEN MEDITATION is a practice that will help you calm your mind and helps you connect with your body, soul, and mind.
In practicing ZEN YOGA BREATHWORK, you will be sitting in a prescribed position, and while you’re in this position, you are encouraged to shut your mind to all thoughts and images, breath in a shallow manner, and become more reflective.
There are countless benefits of ZEN YOGA – and these include both physical and psychological benefits. This practice is known to reduce stress, raise metabolism, and release toxicity. It also increases flexibility, improve blood circulation, and reduce chronic pain.
