Find balance through Breathwork as we celebrate the Fall Equinox for this special session of Ceremonial Breathwork with RVA Yoga! We will begin with a welcome and share with intent for the session. You then will be lead into a Ceremonial Breathwork session, an individual style of breath practice created around ceremonies from indigenous beliefs worldwide. The BREATH is the medicine. The experience incorporates Shamanic elements including the singing of “Icaro” (song of blessing), burning of Palos Santos, and Anointing of scared oils allowing for the connection to nature, the spirit world, and universal oneness. Because of these elements it is a unique experience not to be missed and allows for deep gentle healing for your body, mind and spirit.
At the end of the session there will be 15-20 minutes of integration when you may share your experience and allow for what is called grounding or “getting back into” the body after the practice has concluded.

Please know the gentle pranayam methods of Ceremonial Breathwork do not promote hyperventilation or re-traumatization unlike other form of breathwork such as holotropic or rebirthing allowing it, for the most part, to be non-invasive. HOWEVER, breathwork is not for everyone and you should consult your doctor first if you have a history of epileptic seizure, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, major cardiovascular issues, serious psychiatric symptoms, or a history of aneurysms. If you recently have had surgery and still have stitches or other medical or physical conditions which would impair your ability to breathe deeply and lay on your back on the floor for an hour then perhaps Ceremonial Breathwork is not for you.
