Feeling constantly tired- Want more energy?
Learn a thing or two about breathing and away you go.
Pranayama is a stand-alone therapy it merges well with Asana Practise ( physically bending, stretching and twisting) and can also be done on its own.
I am offering a ride on the breath work wave:
As a 1-2-1 class over 1.5hrs or for a small group of friends, in person or via Skype or Zoom.
We can dive a bit deeper into:
1.clearing airwaves and prep
2.starting with a kundalini base warm up
3.dipping in our “normal base” breath
4.breathing techniques from around the world, breath-holds.
5.circular, transformational yin breathwork mini session experience
To go deeper we experience Transformational Breathwork.
If you have done a breathwave with me here is a link to do some safe, supported breathing at home.
!!!Only do the 11- Minute Breath Practise MP3 by my Friend Michael Brian Baker and The Breath Center alone!!!
Ideally only after having had a supported experience first.
It requires also a warm up and cool down.
We always start with an intention and finish with a moment of contemplation and gratitude
Experience effective tools for:
- heightened alertness
- calming and rejuvenation
- altered brain patterns diving into stillness
- improving rest and sleep
- benefitting heart health
- increasing uptake of oxygen…
Need to connect back into your body?
Remember, hydration and nourishment play a big role in how your energy levels are.
I occasionally offer different Bodywork sessions, to help you ground, release tension and melt. These are treatments that need to be earned by putting your own work in first.
Try My 5 favourite Breathing techniques for all occasions 🙂
Please ensure you consult your health practitioner or yoga teacher before starting off on your own.
These Techniques are very powerful, why else would they be able to change you from the inside out and on all levels of your being?
1. Goldilocks breath
It is used to clear the nostrils and sinuses – essential tool if you suffer from allergies or angry airways. I teach this one in Nurseries, the snottiest environment on earth and it really helps. Keep a tissue handy!
2. Warming breath – breath of fire
It has the ability to raise your body temperature and it increases your metabolic rate. It improves your ability to exhale and let go and move on.
A great tool for people with poor circulation low BP ( handle with care!!!)
3. Cooling breath – breath of ice
it has the ability to lower your body temperature and it cools mind.
It improves your ability to take in air and receiving more nourishment and nurturing.
A great tool for hot flushes and high BP ( handle with care!!!)
4. Alternated nostril breathing
Balances both sides of your brain and good for your hormonal balance. It improved your ability to juggle and go with the flow.
A Great tool to ease stress-related illnesses like Hypertension, Migraine, Asthma, bronchitis and more
Adding the sound that uses the breath we add with “So-Hum” a silent mantra:
so-hum mantra the translated into ‘I am – that’ that refers to ‘all that is’ connecting with all there is.
As you inhale you say ‘so’ silently to yourself and on the exhalation you say silently ‘hum’.
5. Ohmkar chanting ( See my Video)
Hahaha, when I started teacher training I said: “ if I am ever required to do this chanting stuff I will NEVER become a Yoga teacher!”
And here I am voting it one of my most important Pranayams. And YES it works a treat!
For clearing the mind, making space in the head, to promote a good night sleep or just for freshening up.
I have attached a recording of some Ohm chanting so you do not feel so alone when you want to integrate it into your home practice.
