Breathwork – an Energy Practice:
While energy work was once and still is somewhat shrouded in a cloak of mysticism, our modern era is bringing some wonderful developments, such as the scientific study of human energy fields, brain sciences, epigenetics, meditation, contemplative practice, natural medicine and the like. Dr. Dispenza’s work and many others are now scientifically quantifying the amount of energy humans generate when they enter deep states of meditation and open their energy fields. We understand enough about microwaves and radiowaves and soundwaves to know that they exist, even though we cannot see them. We are beginning to truly study the science of the brain from the standpoint of its energy production, transmutation or mutation, coherence and more. We can literally measure people’s states of consciousness, and know exactly when they move from states of beta to alpha or gamma!
Breathwork is a beautiful energy practice with so much depth, history, tradition and success, just like Reiki, yoga and meditation. All forms of energy healing work with the energy field of the human being to produce very measurable magnetic and electric effects. These, in turn, have very real and very measurable effects on the living tissue of the human body! How cool is that? Research continues to mount showing that different Hertz (Hz), cycles per second, produce different measurable effects on the body. Science demonstrates that 2 Hz promotes nerve regeneration, 7 Hz stimulates bone growth, 10 Hz repairs ligaments, and at 15 Hz capillaries form. We can’t ignore the truth: Energy is what changes or determines matter – not the other way around. By working with energy fields through practices such as breathwork, Reiki, yoga, meditation and more, you can change your body’s energetic frequency to bring itself back into balance.
New or seasoned Breathwork practitioner:
Regardless of your previous exposure to breathwork practices, ailments you are enduring, blockages you face internally and externally, or any fears surrounding more intuitive practices, we will start at your place on the journey and move ahead.
For example, if you are brand new to any contemplative or yoga-based practices – great! We will start at the very beginning teaching you how to connect with your breath, steadying your intake of oxygen and outtake of carbon dioxide. First we work to allow your body to take in more oxygen than in the past, which helps to promote relaxation, peace of mind and natural healing. These introductory exercises activate the energy stores in your body, produce more energy for you to consume and use, and provide a foundation for all breathing exercises to come. From here, newer students are gradually introduced to many more breathing techniques, educated about what they are and where they come from, and taught how to use them as tools for life.
If you are experienced in a specific type of breathwork and want to go deeper in your practices, or are interested in learning new types of breathwork to supplement your tool box for optimal living, we can assist in your journey. Krista has worked with people from all walks of life, abilities and disabilities, including professional athletes from many sports. She loves the fulfillment of working with every kind of person to help them achieve their goals of better physical, mental and spiritual health and wellness.
Each Session: Please wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing. Bring an eye mask, plus pen and paper to take notes at the end of your breathwork session. We highly recommend making sure you have an empty stomach – it’s easier to access the more subtle energies of the body and mind when the body is not using its energy to digest food. And, of course, always come with an open mind and joy in your heart for the things you are about to receive.
After Each Session:
Like all other more subtle energy practices, working with the breath is working directly with energy! It is more subtle at first, until you work with the tool and acquire the skills being proffered. Once this occurs, the energy moves from something subtle to something very powerful and tangible. It’s only natural to want and need to express, to understand, to interpret your own emotions after a breathwork or other energy work session.
As with Reiki or yoga or meditation, you may feel the urge to laugh, cry, let go, or surrender or hide or anything in between. Take time after each session to talk, or write, or do anything that helps you creatively express yourself. Krista will give you homework exercises. In the days and weeks after your session, practice those homework exercises consistently. If you invest time to disconnect from your outer world, and reconnect with your inner one via your breath, you will see progress in your efforts with energy work. When you feel ready for more instruction, or direction, or an assessment of your progress with the tools you’ve been working on, contact us to schedule another session.
