Mindful Breathwork workshop with Gilad Shavit
You are invited to experience the wonders of Mindful Breathwork- Connecting in a meaningful ways. 9/7/23 10-14 @ Breathing Space Hobart
What is Mindful Breathwork?
There are many forms of breath work and the place of breathing techniques in personal growth has rich traditions that goes back centuries in the east.
Breathwork in this context combines elements of mindfulness and cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) to create an experiential, body-based intervention intended to facilitate emotional expression in a non-judgmental way, in a safe way.
There is a growing understanding of the involvement of the body in holding trauma, depression and anxiety. Many therapeutic approaches focus solely on the mind to be treated without consideration that the contents of the mind are embodied.
This breathwork component is an active breathing technique done lying down with music, that creates physiological changes in the body including increased serotonin and oxytocin. Individuals commonly experience strong emotion, sensations or thoughts during this process, with high levels of serotonin and oxytocin present, it is experienced with a sense of safety acceptance and wellbeing.
Who does it fit?
As in this technique the Breather (participant) can choose how "deep" they would like to go, it fits almost everyone who wishes to explore the inner world and or feel better in the day to day life. This setting does NOT fit people with epilepsy, astma, pregnant woman or people who should avoid cardio activity. If you have one of the above please DON'T attend this session (a group setting) but one on one with qualified breathwork practitioner.
How to sigh up?

I feel honoured to have the opportunity to train people how to share their own gifts through Breathwork and Mindfulness.
My aim is to help build the next generation of Mindfulness and Breathwork facilitators for trauma recovery.
