The Stoic Breath
I advise against practicing this style of breathwork if you are dealing with any of the following:
• High blood pressure (in case of prescription medication)
• Coronary heart disease (e.g. Angina Pectoris; Stable Angina)
• A history of serious health issues like heart failure or stroke
If you are pregnant, I advise against practicing the full Stoic Breath. There are increased adrenaline levels associated with breath hold that may adversely affect the health of the baby. You can of course follow along to the meditation and be fully aware of your breath and body.
What is The Stoic Breath?
In our busy lives we get stuck in mental muddle – dwelling in the past and worrying about the future. Our busy brains are dominated by a maladaptive limbic system and we’re stuck in fight, flight, or freeze. We grind away at our desks and our bodies are stiff and painful. Our mind and body is unwell. We are heavy with dis-ease.
Our breath is the energetic link between our mind, our body, and our spirit.
I have studied many different breath work modalities over the years. From ancients shamanic practices of India to the modern shaman Wim Hof, what was once grounded in mysticism is now understood by science.
In this 60 minute class you will learn to use your breath to achieve a deep state of meditation. Starting with a simple observation of your breath you will notice a shift away from the distractions of your mind and become aware of the subtle rhythms of your body – Breath, Heart, Life.
As you take control of your breath you will begin to unlock the power within you to reduce stress, boost creativity and physical performance, and observe a deeper level Self.
This streaming online class is best experienced with headphones on and, if possible, an eye mask. People new to breath work are encouraged to lay down while they breathe.
