Biodynamic Breathwork & Trauma Release Training | February 1, 2019 - February 9, 2019

Biodynamic Breathwork & Trauma Release Training

BioDynamic Breath is built on a new approach to Trauma Release, utilizing breath, conscious movement, sound, touch, and non-cathartic emotional release techniques as its foundation. This fully experimental training is designed to break through the many layers of body armoring, releasing mental, emotional and physical resistance down to your core. BioDynamic Breath & Trauma Release enables you to experience the full range of sensations and emotions available as a human being while expanding your capacity to contain and support the free flow of life-force energy.

Training topics include:
Anatomy of breath
Physiology of trauma
Body armoring by body segments (releasing 7 belts of tension: eyes and forehead, throat, shoulders & arms, chest, diaphragm, abdomen, pelvis)
Fundamentals of grounding work and bio-energetic exercises
BioDynamic breathwork sessions & techniques
Foundation of  effective Trauma Release
Myofascial Unwinding (a connective tissue release modality)
Trauma Release & Tension Release Exercises (TRE)
Cultivating the inner space required to support a BioDynamic Breathwork & Trauma Release session
Bodywork and Conscious Touch techniques
Acupressure points to support energetic release during breathwork sessions Active and other meditations to support well-being and integration of BioDynamic Breathwork & Trauma release sessions
Using sound & vibrational healing as an emerging field within trauma release

During painful or traumatic events we lose our connection to feeling and the sense of being grounded, resulting in tension, numbness, and a disconnect from the universal life force energy (Prana or Qi). Supported by the surrounding beauty and powerful energetic field of Hawaii you will begin to master the art of moving deeply into your body, facilitating the release of stored trauma with skill and sensitivity.
