The Stoic Breath

Why is it called The Stoic Breath? There area a lot of misconceptios about Stoicism. Really, Stoicism is about observing life and fully experiencing all that the universe gives you. We can’t do this when we are lost in our busy minds. Breathwork is a great way to go beyond the distractions and truly connect to mind, body, heart, and spirit.

Before you sign up please read the contraindications to make sure this is right for you:

I advise against practicing this style of breathwork if you are dealing with any of the following:

•    Epilepsy
•    High blood pressure (in case of prescription medication)
•    Coronary heart disease (e.g. Angina Pectoris; Stable Angina)
•    A history of serious health issues like heart failure or stroke

If you are pregnant, I advise against practicing the full Stoic Breath. There are increased adrenaline levels associated with breath holds that may adversely affect the health of the baby. You can of course follow along to the meditation and be fully aware of your breath and body.

In this 45-60 minute class you will learn to use your breath to achieve a deep state of meditation. Starting with a simple observation of your breath you will notice a shift away from the distractions of your mind and become aware of the subtle rhythms of your body – Breath, Heart, Life.

As you take control of your breath you will begin to unlock the power within you to reduce stress, boost creativity and physical performance, and observe a deeper level self. This streaming online class is best experienced with headphones on. People new to breath work are encouraged to lay down while they breathe.
