SOMATIC BREATHWORK & TRAUMA RELEASE

Breathwork is a process of deep healing and transformation. Through the use of a continuous breathing pattern, breathwork accesses old/stuck energy at the cellular level and works with the autonomic nervous system to:

  • unlock energy pathways to help move frozen/stuck energy through the body, especially trauma-related energy

  • release old emotions, patterns & physical belts of tension

  • heal old wounds, childhood fight/flight/freeze responses

  • surface and heal unconscious relationship patterns and their associated wounds of abandonment/rejection

  • ancestral patterns of struggle/limitation

As well as reconnect with:

  • primal needs and feelings

  • your authentic self-expression

  • creativity, intuition and soul gifts

  • your body’s innate self-healing ability

  • the inner capacity for self-love and forgiveness

  • your radiance & vitality

By opening up and releasing stuck energy through the body, the breathwork process activates deep healing and a realignment with the Soul and wisdom of the Body.

What to expect from your Somatic Breathwork Session

Your 75min session consists of 3 parts:

  1. A brief intake of your current challenges and some history relating to your birth and family of origin

  2. Guided connective breathing (45min-55min): where you will be gently guided to activate the nervous system through a breathing pattern. With the help of point-specific touch/self-touch, verbal guidance and somatic movement exercises, the body will begin to access & discharge the emotional, psychological and physical energies that are ready to be released. In addition to the lightness that is often experienced from the letting go of inner burdens and tensions, you may also receive profound insight, perspective shifts and soul downloads during this part of the session.

  3. Integration: you will be guided into a winding down process to settle the nervous system and debrief your session

TESTIMONIALS 

In moments of stuckness, I run to breathwork. It’s been my healing for many years now. All the scary places within me that I’m afraid to visit by myself I can access within those sessions. Natalia holds a safe space for me within which I dive in deeper emotionally and reveal myself fully. Those sessions bring me so much peace and joy. It feels like the heavy burden I’m carrying on a daily basis is lifted and creates space for joy and love.

A Note About Trauma & How Breathwork Plays a Role

What is Trauma?

When faced with a crisis/threat/overwhelming event, each person has available to them what’s called a ‘Window of Tolerance’ or ‘Zone of Resilience’-the capacity to access inner resources to regulate our response to stress without becoming overwhelmed. Everyone’s zone/window is different depending on their trauma history, attachment history and other factors. What, for some people, creates tremendous distress, may create almost none for others.

Outside of this zone of resilience, a person will find him or herself in dis-regulated territory: hyper arousal above (sympathetic nervous system) or hypo arousal below (parasympathetic nervous system). Trauma happens when a person is faced with an experience(s) that overwhelms the nervous system (it was too much, too fast or too soon) to the point where it becomes unable to complete its survival response. This results in a shutdown (freeze/numbness) or chaos (chronic anxiety/anger) as well as difficulty in returning to the zone of resilience through a looping process where it keeps recycling the energy of the trauma without being able to discharge it.

In the hyper arousal state, aka fight or flight, we experience panic, aggression, anxiety, anger, running away from stressor.

In the hypo arousal state, aka freeze, we experience depression, disassociation, anti-social behaviour, helplessness, numbness & immobilization.

How Breathwork Helps Release Trauma:

With a specific rhythm of breath, the breather gains access to the hypo and hyper arousal states of the nervous system. Using a process called titration, where the breather’s nervous system is activated and then calmed, the breather begins to feel and discharge the stuck energy from the body.
