EXPERIENTIAL WORKSHOP

Breathing Basics

SATURDAY 14.9. KL 10-12

What is functional breathing and therapeutic breathwork? Why does breathing matter? Breathing happens automatically, but at the same time it carries enormous potential for healing, regulating the nervous system, sleeping better, digesting food more easily, focusing better, learning to know oneself and transforming one's experience of life on all levels: physiological, cognitive, emotional and spiritual.

In this workshop you learn about how breathing is one of the most important bodily functions and plays a central role in your health & well-being! You will learn about breath awareness, stress regulation and becoming the pilot instead of a passenger in your own life when faced with challenges.

EXPERIENTIAL WORKSHOP

The Supple Body

SATURDAY 14.9. KL 13-15

Breathing is movement, and in order to breathe efficiently and fully our tissues need to be flexible and responsive.

This is a physical and dynamic session where we will work on muscles, fascia and joints through active mobility movements. During this workshop you will discover the difference between mobility/flexibility, recoil, fascia-lines, active release and how to breathe while stretching.

We will utilize self-massage, massage tools, elastic, breathing-assisted stretching and partner work.

The goal is to experience more space and fluidity in your breathing.

EXPERIENTIAL WORKSHOP

Transform Stress to Resilience with Breath & Cold Exposure

SATURDAY 14.9. KL 13-15

Ready for cold water season? Learn about cold water exposure and how breath can be your pathway to expanding your comfort zone!

Strong physiological resilience means strong stress tolerance, skillful regulation of the nervous system state, fast recovery from stress, and healthy immune functions (among others). These all can be affected with and through breathing.

In this experiential workshop you will dive deep into breathing as a tool for increasing resources. You will hear about the Buteyko method practices for promoting health and performance capacity, and you will get a taste of controlled hyperventilation (deeper and faster breathing) as a tool for building stress tolerance and nervous system capacity.

EXPERIENTIAL WORKSHOP

Breathe to Heal

SATURDAY 14.9. KL 15.30-17.30

Therapeutic breathwork and movement for down-regulation & unwinding.

This workshop suits especially well if you struggle with breathing problems, high stress levels, fatigue, pain, or other chronic ailments. We go super-soft and super-slowly.

The session begins with movement to warm up the breathing muscles, ground in the body and release tensions. We continue with simple breathing techniques and breathing meditations that you can continue to use at home in your daily life. The focus is on functional breathing and a psychophysiological approach to holistic health.

EXPERIENTIAL WORKSHOP

Hypopressives Part 1

SATURDAY 14.9. KL 15.30-17.30

Breathing is all about attention to coordination, relaxation and activation. Hypopressive Training is a great path to gain more control over your diaphragm. Improving your overall breathing, posture and pelvic floor health.

Hypopressives Training Method utilizes the ancient Uddiyana Bandha technique, creating a vacuum in the chest. This is a great tool to reduce internal pressure, releasing tension on the pelvic organs, abdomen and spine.

The method is used worldwide by everything from post-partum rehabilitation, yogis, fitness, bodybuilders and athletes.

You will learn the basic breathing techniques in part 1 of these workshops.

EXPERIENTIAL WORKSHOP

Sauna @ Havet with Guided Cold Exposure

SUNDAY 15.9. KL 7-9.30

Kickstart your day with sauna and cold exposure! There will be a sauna ritual at 8.00 "Morning Breaths". We will also guide you through a health-boosting warmth & cold exposure session.

EXPERIENTIAL WORKSHOP

Morning Movements with Pranayama

SUNDAY 15.9. KL 10-12

Pranayama literally means "expanding prana", your spirit or the breath of life where your respiratory breath originates from. In yoga, pranayamas are the breathing exercises used to regulate your experience, clarify the mind, eradicate disease and work with the subtle currents of the body-mind; finetuning the way of being in the world. 

In this workshop you will hear some theory about pranayama practices. We will prepare the body-mind for breathing practices through movement and postures, after which some pranayamas are presented. The workshop is open for all levels, and options are given to adjust the practices, if needed!

EXPERIENTIAL WORKSHOP

Hypopressives Part 2

SUNDAY 15.9. KL 10-12

We continue with the Hypopressive Training Method. You will learn 3 basic poses that alleviate tension, increase core activation and create more space throughout the body. These poses are built on the neuromuscular rehabilitation principles, challenging your body in various positions.

Finally we will combine the breathing techniques and the poses into a short flow.

Only for those who participated on Part 1 on Saturday or have some experience with Hypopressive Training.

EXPERIENTIAL WORKSHOP

Embodied Breathwork - “Breath of Life”

SUNDAY 15.9. KL 13-15

Nervous system-led breathwork journey to the magic of the breath.

Every breath is a return to wholeness. Can you feel that?
Every breath brings you back home. Can you feel that?
Every breath is a ripple of life, running through the physical animal body. Can you feel that?


Embodied breathwork is an invitation to come home to yourself and awaken the space within.

Breathwork practiced in this session is powerful yet soft and gentle, so arrive open-minded. We use a conscious connected breathing pattern (everything is optional). Please read the contraindications:

EXPERIENTIAL WORKSHOP

Deep Journey - Meditation and Relaxation

SUNDAY 15.9. KL 13-15

Get comfortable in your physical body as we embark on a journey into our consciousness. All you need to do on this workshop is to follow the guide, the sound, the scents and your intuition.

You will be guided through various meditations, body scans and stories.

The aim is to reach a state of deep relaxation and connection with your internal world.

This is a journey without destination, your fellow companions are your breath and your senses.

EXPERIENTIAL WORKSHOP

Closing practice with Boundary Work & Connection Circle

SUNDAY 15.9. KL 15.30-17.30

Strengthen your boundaries through somatics & breathwork. The traditional way of communication has been a sacred one. In this intuitive model of sharing we honour authentic expression, generosity, courage and compassion. In this space we both become a part of an entity but also remain unique as an individual. Our listening is active yet non-judgemental and the sharing is private yet undetailed. Join us in a reflective conversation as we share our experiences from a weekend of breath, introspection and community.
