Do you wish to be more centred in your body instead of lost in your restless mind? Do you long for true peace and inner stability and leave behind the worries, anxiety and mental and emotional stress? Is there a wish to truly come home to yourself, find contentment that does not depend on circumstances? Or perhaps you feel that there is tension and blockages in your body but you don't know how to release this? Then this breathwork course could be for you!
Why breathwork? The first thing that happens when we are born into a body, is to breathe in. The last thing when we leave our physical body is to exhale. Fundamentally breathe equals life!
Each day we breathe in and out about 20.000 times. We often don't realise that through our breath we can dissolve blockages in our thinking, feelings and behaviour. When we feel worried or afraid or we experience a moment of shock, unconsciously we hold our breath. This takes away our vital life energy. Because of this, most of us have a very superficial breathing pattern and thus take in less oxygen. This can go up to less than 50% of what is available. It can lead to tiredness, illnesses, stress, and burnout without us even noticing it.
When we breathe more deeply we take in more oxygen and subtle life energy also called prana or chi. About 75% of the energy we take in through oxygen, by breathing. And about 70% of the toxins our body releases is through the out-breath. So by breathing more fully, more effectively, this process is optimised. You will feel more energised, more relaxed, and much healthier. The use of the diaphragm during circular breathing supports the functioning of the heart, empowers the blood circulation, and boosts your immune system.
Everything that we experience in life and not fully process by suppressing or denying, we see back as tensions, blockages, and stress in our body. These tensions have their effects on our breath by restricting a free-flowing in- and out-breath. It is also more likely to identify with these deeper rooted contractions in the body; 'I always feel sad', 'why I'm always so insecure/ afraid?' and 'I am not good enough', 'what is wrong with me?'. Thoughts like these and our belief in them show our identification with these unprocessed feelings and traumas. Circular breathing is a strong and effective technique with which you invite these tight and dense areas in the body to loosen up and therefore release old stuck emotions and trauma that we have collected unconsciously on a cellular level. When these tensions are released, the limiting 'me-story' drops, and also our breath is free and can flow naturally.
What and how:
We will come together online for 6 weeks and learn and practice therapeutic circular breathwork from the comfort of our own home. Every week we will meet for two hours through Zoom.
You will learn different ways of practicing breathwork, several pressure points on the body, and other simple tools and techniques to apply to your own breath sessions that can also deepen your meditations.
Every online meeting there will be a proper breathwork session in which each one will be coached so that the breath frees up your body from built-up tension, anxiety, and stress.
During these six weeks you make this life-changing technique your own by practicing breathwork and also Meditation on a daily basis.
You receive the Zoom meeting recordings of each session and access to Rolandjan's breathwork program page with new online content weekly
Supportive 'silent’ Whatsapp/ FB group with the participants to share and stay in touch in between the online sessions
After this course, you feel much more alive, spontaneous, peaceful, and live from a place of authenticity. Besides that, you have thoroughly learned breathwork as a wonderful practise for the rest of your life!
