Become a part of the breathwork community and develop your skills as a functional breather. Together, we can improve our breathing skills and reduce the dysfunctional breathing patterns that impact our biochemistry, biomechanics, and psychosocial health.
We will practice subtle breathing techniques that aim to cultivate awareness of the Self and reduce stress and anxiety, while improving our overall health and wellness.
Michael teaches a subtle breathing techniques based on ancient Taoist and Yogic practices, and informed by a modern scientific approach, the Buteyko Method; all of these traditions are based on increasing our tolerance for carbon dioxide, which helps the cells of our body absorb more life-giving oxygen. Subtle breathing helps to reduce the over-breathing patterns we may have, and helps bring awareness to being more conscious of how our breath affects
our mind, body and spirit.
The basic techniques are simple and easy to do, however, having a support system of like-minded peers and a knowledgable teacher can keep you motivated. Although the techniques are very approachable, it can take some time to master them, and different individuals may encounter different obstacles that can be addressed by an experienced instructor.
The workshops are one hour long and include a brief lesson, followed by open discussion, and a guided meditation practice at the end. Yoga mats or chairs, blankets and pillows are provided. You will also receive a breathwork journal, where you can track your progress for months to come.
