In this one hour class guided by Steve live on Zoom you will use your breath to achieve a deep state of meditation and wellbeing. Breathing to the beats of the music, you unlock the power within you to reduce stress and inflammation, boost creativity, release trapped emotions, gain clarity and return to your true Self.
This streaming online class is best experienced with headphones on. People new to breath work are encouraged to lie down while they breathe.
Why is it called The Stoic Breath? There is a lot of misconceptions about Stoicism. Really, Stoicism is about observing the impressions life makes on you, and fully experience all that is 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.
I advise against practicing this style of breathwork if you are dealing with any of the following:
• 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.
