Breath is life. Breath creates movement and energy. Simply becoming aware of the breath, how it moves and where it is blocked can have a profound impact on the whole body and psyche. Most of us have spent our lives holding back and restricting deep full breaths. When we start to breathe fully and consciously we are able to release what we have been holding on to. Reichian, Tantric, and transpersonal methods such as Holotropic breathwork may be explored to assist in bringing emotional or unconscious material to the surface. This expansion of consciousness assists in moving through blockages in the bodymind, cultivating and cleansing life force energy and becoming present to feeling our experience in the moment.
