Learn the Foundations of Rhythmic, Therapuetic Breathwork in a Safe and Strong Group of Local Yogis!
Using the breath in a facilitated group format like this has the power to clear old traumas, unleash new vigor/stamina and support men to truly stand in health and presence for their communities.
Before teaching Asana full-time, Jenna McDonald was traveling the globe and teaching Breathwork to Yoga Communities, Schools and in Wilderness Programs to facilitate depth in Practice & Relationship and promote healthy, honest bonding within communities without the need for intoxicants.
The states available through this particular Breathwork are designed to:
Re-oxygenate the body, help flip unhealthy mental grooves and release past injury/trauma.
This workshop is designed to activate latent potential and gather insight by accessing an altered and therapeutic state of being.
The Yoga Sutras urge us to find a pranayama that evokes a natural pause in the breath, and thus uninhibited connection to source. This Pranayama is designed to do just that.
The breath pattern consists of 1) an open mouth breath 2) removing the pause at top and bottom of inhale and exhale 3) origin of breath from LOW belly and 4) relaxed exhale. All of these are applied with care so as not to create a hyper-ventilation pattern.
We use sound and movement to expand lung capacity and calm the nervous system.
In the beginning it is advised NOT to practice pranayama without facilitation because of the POWER of the breath to alter the body and mind.
