Breathwork with Bonnie Coberly

  • 906.World Cultural Center, Inc. 906 Broadway San Francisco United States (map)

Join yoga and breathwork practitioner Bonnie Coberly to melt away stress and explore the healing power of your breath in community. If you're ready to release, rest, recharge and deeply connect with yourself and some other amazing people, please join us!

WHAT IS BREATHWORK?

Breathwork is an active meditation fueled by a consistent, conscious breathing technique. It is a powerful tool to help you quiet your mind, connect with your body and heart, release stuck energy and emotion, dissolve stress and anxiety, and experience deeper levels of spiritual connection.

WHAT YOU WILL EXPERIENCE:

The breath is the most basic and profound doorway to access your life force energy and consciousness. The simple and profound practice of actively using breath to fill yourself with oxygen and move stuck energy out of your body feels like a highly focused meditation combined with the rejuvenation of a great nap and the deep emotional release of a good cry. It has this unexpected power to melt away what's no longer yours to keep and reconnect you squarely with the essence of who you are. Breath brings new life, always.

We'll begin with a 15-minute yin yoga practice to land in our bodies and stretch into inner stillness. Then we will spread out and get comfy on our mats to begin a 45-minute breathwork journey, guided by a two-part pranayama breath, music and essential oils. You will use the fullness and healing power of each breath to feel your intentions, move through your limitations, nourish your nervous system, and deeply connect with your own energy and wisdom. Our group size will be limited so you can receive individual support and guidance, if needed. We will close in circle, with plenty of time for sharing and integration.

No previous experience is required, just a willingness to explore the process. While the breathing practice is different for everyone and each journey is unique, some benefits and experiences may include:

- emotional release and healing

- letting go of old stories, trauma, energy, and experiences that no longer serve you

- a deeper connection to Self and Spirit

- tapping into your intuition and strength

- reduced stress and anxiety

- improved sleep and ability to relax/rest

- feeling lighter, clearer and more joyful

WHAT TO BRING:

- A small pillow

- an eye mask (if you want to block out light)

- a water bottle and journal

- wear light, comfy clothing you'd want to sit and lay down in for several hours

Please note: breathwork is most comfortable and effective when your stomach is not full. Please refrain from eating a heavy meal prior to the workshop.
