About The Power of Breath Workshops

Half Day – Foundational knowledge and practices
Full Day – Deepening of the morning with additional practices

The half-day, in-person workshop will focus on foundational knowledge and practices beginning with presence in our bodies. This includes: 

A. Understanding the Art of Breath
B. Enjoyment / No judgment / Heighten awareness
C. Develop abilities for EASILY strengthening and lengthening our breath

The full-day workshop builds upon the foundational knowledge and practices learned in the morning and provides additional practices, covering the mechanics of optimal breathing. This includes:


A. Understanding the Science of Breath: The Brain & the Breath / Stress / Oxygen / Peak Performance
B. The Why / When / How
C. Attaining mastery of our Life-Force

In each half-day workshop you will learn how to follow our breath and sense the movements of our breath without changing them in any way. We will apply many different practices that aid us in being more fully present in our bodies, releasing tensions and allowing for fuller, more natural breathing.


You may think this is unnecessary and even a waste of time. However, when we learn to consciously
breathe, feeling the movement of the breath and following the flow of the inhalations and the exhalations . . .


• our mind becomes still and calm
• our breath naturally lengthens
• our nervous system changes
• our immune system is enhanced
• our physical heart is strengthened
• our blood pressure stabilizes
• we connect to our compassionate heart
• our energy body/flow becomes more activated
• our prana/life-force is distributed more fully
• our emotional body clears
• we become more centered and balanced
• we become more in tune with the cycles of life itself

 

In the full-day workshop you will also begin to learn techniques like Diaphragmatic/Belly, Complete Breath, Circular
Breath and Alternate Nostril breathwork that will aid in:
• Increasing energy & vitality
• Rejuvenation and relaxation
• Stress reduction and stress management
• Heightened focus, memory and cognitive abilities
• Strengthening the immune system
• Optimal physcial, mental ; emotional well-being
• Remaining calm, centered and serene in any circumstances
• Reducing tendencies to become irritated and provoked
• Minimizing sick time & increasing productivity

Then you will explore how these techniques can be incorporated into your daily lives in possible routines and also as separate tools to be used in specific circumstances.

A message from Laurie

“I feel these trainings are unique and special. I have been honing these teachings for over 30 years, learning how to reach yoga teachers & students, medical personnel, patients, educators, elders, students from K-post grad, homemakers, executives, office workers, athletes, UN personnel, girls rescued from brothels, peace workers, veterans and people dealing with direct trauma, secondary trauma, and stress in walks of life, everywhere.

I want to pass on “Breath Literacy” and how to share maximum amount of material (that can change people’s breath and people’s lives) in the minimum amount of time. Voilà! ‘The Power of Breath’ workshop combined with wisdom and knowledge in “Breath Is Life,” and BLIPPs (Breath Literacy’s Instant Power Practices).”

Breath Literacy = the wisdom and knowledge of how to breathe optimally,

moment by moment, breath by breath, and in circumstances all throughout life.
