Circular Breathing

With Lonneke Lamers

In this workshop, we will come together to explore the possibilities of a breathing technique called Circular Breathing. During this technique, we remove the pauses between the in and exhalation and the ex and inhalation. Our breathing then becomes circular, without any intermissions. Both the in and out breath are done through the mouth. The inhalation is full and deep, the exhalation is completely relaxed.
 

In this monthly recurring workshop, we will start with some gentle movement and pranayama to warm up and relax the body and mind. After this, we will join in a circle for a longer breathing session, which is done lying on the back.

What is Circular Breathing?

Circular breathing is a therapeutic technique that allows you to enter into a process where that which is unconscious in you may come into the light - to be seen and reviewed. It enables you to be both the experiencer and the observer simultaneously. When we consciously breathe with this awareness, we make it possible to resolve, integrate and heal previously unresolved tensions or issues within ourselves. This frees up energy, bringing greater aliveness and joy, and feeling spacious in body and mind.

Circular breathing is a soft and gentle technique, and can, therefore, be done for a longer period of time, ranging from half an hour to an hour. 

A note on well-being

Please note that this breathing practice is not advisable for people with epilepsy or psychiatric history, or people currently undergoing treatment with psychiatric drugs or therapy. The intensity of the practices may release blockages in the body that can trigger intense sensations and emotions and shake up your being. Pregnant women are welcome and will be given modified instructions. Please do inform the teachers about your pregnancy, even (or especially) while in the first trimester.


Please make sure to come on an empty stomach!

About Lonneke Lamers

After years of practicing yoga next to a busy office job, Lonneke's curiosity for yoga had grown. A couple of things came together, which led her to yoga philosophy, mindfulness and Chinese medicine. It was a process of healing in itself.
