Breath Style : Three Part Breath
We cannot deny the inextricable link between life and breath. Yet most of us aren’t breathing fully, and some of us struggle for the right to breathe at all. Just as we are unconscious in breath, we are also unconscious in life. We rarely think about the very thing that keeps us alive. This class empowers folks to explore their full spectrum breath. To tap into their own breath for deep healing, deep self-knowledge and radical self care. This class is especially aligned for BIPOC and anyone working in activism, community building and/or wanting to dig deep with anti-racism work.
