The Stoic Breath
The original Stoic Breath. This is where is all began in the early days of the pandemic and is still the most popular with people logging in from all over the world. The Sunday class has more detailed instructions for new participants. The first time in the Stoic Breath is always a little weird. Stick with it, once you get it your busy mind goes quiet and magic happens.
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.
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. We are heavy with dis-ease.
Our breath is the energetic link between our mind, our body, our heart and our spirit.
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. People new to breath work are encouraged to lay down while they breathe.
