What is 10 20 30 Breathwork?
Integrated breathwork, or Therapeutic Breathwork, is the purposeful application of conscious, connected breathing in one-on-one or group settings, guided by a skilled practitioner and the Spirit of Breath. This work is held within a sacred container of the client-therapist relationship, a sense of safety and integrity, and an intention that focuses on bringing an innate somatic intelligence to the healing process.
In this therapeutic work, the breath becomes an energetic portal into the body’s story and a means of releasing suppressions that have been stored in the body for years. In addition, breathwork helps people to shift their focus and attention in a healthier direction, which can relieve stress and anxiety.
The breath is also a powerful tool for spiritual awakening and attunement to the universe. When you breathe, you are connecting to the life force of the Universe and sending it to all living things around you.
