If you are looking for a way to deal with and release all of those negative feelings and experiences that have built up over your life and to get back to a more positive and pure way of being, Breathwork is an excellent tool. Here we explain what you need to know.

What is Breathwork?

Breathwork is simply a word that covers all of the different types of focused breathing techniques. The aim is to “free” the breath and you learn how to use breathing in order to release the negative energies and feelings that have been stored in you due to bad experiences.  By releasing the negative energies, you will feel profound relief and you can let go of the old patterns that were holding you back. Breathwork can actually give you a feeling of being reborn.

Breathwork helps you to maximise the physical potential of your body as you learn how to breathe properly. As mentioned, it also helps you to grow spiritually.  The advantage of Breathwork is that it is simple once learned correctly, and it is safe and gentle.

Types of Breathwork

There are many different types of Breathwork that you can choose from, and each form has a different goal. Just some of the types of Breathwork that you can choose from include:

  • Rebirthing Breathwork - this uses circular breathing in order to draw in more life energy or chi into the body. The additional energy helps you to unlock the emotions that have been instilled in you due to severe traumas going back through your life, even the trauma of being born. You will have the guidance of a trained rebirther as you learn the correct breathing techniques associated with this method.  As toxins are expelled from the body, the person becomes more open to positive things such as love, joy and prosperity.
  • Holotropic Breathwork - this was developed by Stanislav Grof and the word holotropic means moving towards wholeness. Deep breathing exercises are combined with relaxation and special music and the aim is to create more holistic (or whole) feeling of self by accessing mental, emotional, spiritual and physical feelings in order to create change within the self. This therapy is generally done in group settings.
  • Vivation - this is a technique that teaches you how to be happy. It involves teaching a person how to handle even negative experiences in a way that they become positive and it uses specific breathing techniques as part of the therapy. The breathing itself does not create this outcome. Rather, the breathing is a supportive measure to allow a person to develop a rapport with what they are feeling.

Breathwork is also a significant part of many other therapies such as yoga, tai chi, and chi kung, and these therapies will teach you how to correctly harness the breath through using special breathing techniques.

What do I Expect with Breathwork?

Breathwork is undertaken with the guidance of a trained practitioner and it is done in group settings or individually, depending on the type of Breathwork that you have chosen. You will be supported through the whole session and guided where necessary in order to access suppressed emotions and memories and release them.

The practitioner will discuss with you any changes that you would like to make in your life or ask you to talk about what is making you unhappy. This part will last for around half an hour. You will then undergo the breathing phase for around 50 minutes or so. The last part of the session is so that you can integrate what you have felt and learnt during the Breathwork and allow you to reorient and ground yourself. Once you have learnt the techniques, you can practise them on your own but the practitioner will generally recommend five to ten sessions with them initially to ensure that you have the support you need.

Anyone is able to do Breathwork. You can expect to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and to restore your mental, emotional, spiritual and physical balance. You will reconnect with the more positive sides of life and feel more connected, have better self confidence and self esteem, more energised, and more at peace.
