Let your Breath guide you to a space of peace and balance.
When we breathe consciously with intention, our inner wisdom is given the space to do what it knows to do; heal, balance and revitalize us. In this gentle breathing process, held in a supportive accepting space, you get to welcome everything that comes to you as you breathe, with kindness and compassion. As a result, the body/mind becomes more relaxed and receptive to positive change.
What if our tensions and stresses are just the unaccepted and ‘unbreathed’ parts of ourselves?
