Breath Awareness ★ is about self-regulating your system. Getting back to you. Especially supportive if you are very busy, or care for many others, or juggle too many projects, or worry a lot. Also for you feeling depleted or burned-out. Or as a periodical check-up!
BREATH AWARENESS PROGRAM:
☆ Clarify your request
☆ Guided Breathing sessions: Connected Breathing*
☆ Bringing your attention to present sensations
☆ Connect with what is
☆ Becoming (re)acquainted with your body’s sensations
☆ Befriending your body and nerves
☆ Letting go of unnecessary resistance during overwhelm
☆ Allowing your breath and body to be your source of inspiration
Sometimes we experience stress or anxiety.
During this program you slow down and notice your present experience; sensations and thoughts. Permitting yourself to connect with what is, with where you are right now. Inviting you to befriend your nervous system. For you to be able to regulate your system.
Maybe you have been avoiding feelings of overwhelm by cutting yourself off from your body? Maybe you sometimes feel hijacked by your nervous system? Perhaps you are on survive-mode a lot?
I guide you to be there for yourself. To gradually be with the palette of your sensations. I do this because I myself have extensively denied, locked and tried to push away feelings. Resulting in a harnessed and contracted body. I felt jammed-up. I had physical pain, emotional distress and mental issues.
Now, when I notice myself starting to fall off centre; feeling restless, anxious, fearful or even in panic, I pause for a moment. I stop what I’m doing. Close my eyes and take deep breaths. When my nervous system is highly activated, I now acknowledge that. I reaffirm slowing down by breathing with awareness. I allow my senses to open-up to my physical sensations. Allowing my breath to stay very close to what I feel, instead of pushing things away. Granting myself tenderness. Asking myself: “How is my body today?”and: “What does my body need today? This is how I nourish and take care of myself in a new way.
Breathing fully and steadily more open, is a way to get back into your body. To reconnect, be present, be there for yourself and to settle into deep calm.
*I recommend at least 3 sessions. Innerwork through Breath Awareness is a step-by-step process. In my experience, the journey of going inwards unfolds slowly over time; Meeting different guides along the way, and honouring my inner compass.
