About The Event
The Sacred Breath II
My workshops are informal, informative and whatever the content, I try to make sure that I accommodate the specific needs of participants, so that value of the work can be directly experienced by anyone that attends.
This particular workshop will centre on the broader theme of 'choices in breathing' - exposing the limitations of our ideas of 'right breathing/wrong breathing', defining and delineating between the 3 fundamental kinds of breathing available to us, recoginising our current preferences, and exploring the potential advantages of awakening choices that are less available to us.
As usual, this workshop will involve an intensity of personal involvement and engagement, and by the time we finish your body will be thanking you...
The Sacred Breath II. (booking for this is on a separate event)
This course will run from Monday 23rd through to Friday 27th August 2021 (10am - 1pm daily with optional Q&A sessions 4:00 - 5:00pm). (Discounts for Premium members and for 'Sacred Breath I' members)
This course is a follow on from my pre-recorded online course 'Sacred Breath 1' which offers an in-depth guided experience of the most fundamental pranayama practices, together with some exploration of their relationships to natural breathing responses and support. Taking part in Sacred Breath II will give you access to this previous pre-recorded version for you to keep and work with at your own leisure. If you have already purchased 'Sacred Breath 1', and you would like to take it further, you can book the course for a 20% discount)
The progression that Sacred breath II offers will include a review of these particular individual pranayamas (so you dont have to have completed #1 to take part), but it will expand into a practical exploration the potential specific healing outcomes of developing relationships between the breath and structural support for each significant area of the body.
The pranayamas are like the 'exercise' to awaken and enliven the deeper responses that we need for our healing - but 'the Sacred Breath II' will take you into discovering the power of these deeper movements in terms of inner support and external freedom in real-world situations (explored through flowing functional movements and posture).
I will be structuring things so that each day we will be honing our attention directly with one significant area of the body-breath, so that by the end of the 5 days, you will have strategies that can bring freedom, poise and calm to any movement, posture or functional action you care to pay attention to.
I am quite well known for saying that 'the breath is where it is at' and over this course, you will get to experience directly the reality of this statement.
I have been teaching groups of people online and live for over 10 years now, and I have always been surprised at how much I can actually pick up through the screen. A live and interactive place on these workshops means I can respond directly to your questions and your practice, and with the live places limited to just 12, I will be able to see everyone clearly enough on my large screen to be able to pick up on what is needed just as if it was a workshop in a studio. You also get the view of my lovely garden, so you get a 'retreat' feel from being with me as I guide you through your pratice.
NB. if you are unable to book a live and interactive place it means these places have sold out, but you can always choose a 'view-only' place - you can still be there for the live event and you still get access to the recording - all for half price. (You must take full responsibility for your own body if you do this though, as I won't be able to monitor what is going on for you ).
