Copy of Breathwork Insta OCT. 2023

with Kimberly Faith Rayburn
Monday, October 16, 6 pm – 8 pm
Workshop Fee: $40
(Email with any questions)

We all have it, and wouldn’t be alive without it. However, how consciously are we doing it? Our breath is everything, and is often an untapped source of growth. Come experience oxygen as you never have before!

Studies show that breathwork contains many benefits:
– Increased self-love and inner joy
– Reduced stress, anxiety, grief, depression and anger
– Improved sleep
– Improved mental clarity
– Release of trauma
– Release toxins from the body
– Increase oxygen efficiency
– Awaken stem cells and increase red blood cells
– Increased happiness and joy
– Boost immunity
– Greater spiritual connection
– Increased mental clarity
– Supports addiction recovery

Through our breath, we can access parts of our body, soul, mind and heart that we don’t access in the normal day-to-day.  Let go of trauma, release grief, fear and much much more. This style of breathwork allows the “monkey mind” to shut down and allows you to tap into subconscious rewiring and renewal.

In this workshop, we will go on an immersive journey inward through our breath. We will be incorporating many different styles of breathing with different musical styles, which will be sure to provide a profound experience! Be prepared to experience transformation!

What to bring:
* Yoga mat
* Water bottle
* Journal (if you want)
* Any special blanket or pillow you enjoy – I want you to be totally comfortable! (I personally like to bring a pillow)

Please arrive 15 minutes early to get setup. We will promptly begin at 6:00 pm.

Please note: *If you are pregnant, or prone to seizures, this class is not recommended*

One of the main reasons I became a therapist was it provided me the freedom to talk openly about emotions, and death, somethings which were taboo in my family.  In my years of practice, I have discovered that this lack of emotional validation resonates with a huge portion of my clients.  When I began practicing yoga, I stumbled into the added benefit of the practice releasing emotions.  I wondered if there might be some way to bring yoga and those who don’t normally practice yoga but struggle with grief and other difficult emotions, together.  Then, I found Grief Yoga ®.  It was so impactful that I decided to become a teacher.  A Grief Yoga ® class is a safe place to release those stuck old emotional wounds and process grief in a healthy and fun way. I hope you will join me to experience this for yourself.

Join Russell Persson for a 90-minute workshop focusing on mindfulness meditation and present moment awareness. He welcomes anyone new to the practice of meditation as well as experienced practitioners. This workshop is designed to help participants experience the benefits of present moment awareness and cultivate, through guided and silent meditation, loving awareness and the refinement of our innate abilities for concentration and stillness.

The workshop will include:

  • A short series of movements inspired by qigong to bring awareness to the physical body
  • A guided meditation with focus on the breath to cultivate concentration and compassion and to begin to see, with precision, our distractions and addictive thought patterns
  • Questions and discussion on our experience
  • A brief walking meditation
  • And a final silent meditation to end the workshop
