Thriving in the Chaos: Stress Management to Optomize Health - 6 Week Group Breath Work Series
Are you experiencing feelings of uncertainty, fear, overwhelm or anxiety in response to the demands of life? You are not alone; let’s breathe through this together. Throughout this six-week series, you will focus on using your breath to cope with these feelings and enhance your immune system, cardiovascular health and respiratory health. During these six-weeks, through guided breath work sessions, you will build awareness around your body’s physical response to perceived threat and acquire tools to cope and down-regulate when in a stressed state. You will simultaneously awaken the power within you and deepen your connection with yourself.
During the six-week series, we will meet virtually every week for 60-minutes. This time will be spent experiencing a 30-45-minute guided breathwork session, exploring coping mechanisms for stress, and reviewing and educating on the healing power of your breath. In addition to our weekly meetings, you will receive a weekly worksheet to individualize the weekly mantra, a worksheet to review the weekly stress management tool and a guided, integrative breathwork audio to continue your practice independently between meetings.
