Biodynamic Breathwork group workshop
Time & Location
About the Event
We often experience stress on a daily basis, at home or at work. The body constantly responds to increased stress levels by contracting the muscles to 'endure' the problem. However, we rarely acknowledge these contractions until we experience pain, discomfort or illness. Biodynamic Breathwork helps the body in a gentle way to free deep muscle patterns from stress, tension and trauma. The body is encouraged to return to a state of equilibrium.
Biodynamic Breathwork combines elements of the body-focused therapeutic approach of Wilhelm Reich, the bio-energetic approach of Alexander Lowan with the gentle techniques of Peter Levine's Somatic Experiencing. Biodynamic Breathwork uses a specific form of connected breathing supported by movement, touch, sound, conscious emotional expression and TRE tension release exercises to support liveliness, awareness and healing on a physical level. While energy may flow freely through the body, we experience a deep sense of inner peace.
Reported benefits of biodynamic breathing include:
- Less worry and fear
- Decreased symptoms of PTSD
- More energy and endurance
- An increased sense of liveliness and awareness of the body.
- More connection with others
- Improved concentration
- Better Sleep
- Reduced muscle and back pain
- Greater emotional resilience
- Healing of old injuries

We start the evening with a short check-in, an explanation of the various elements of Biodynamic Breathwork that we will experience. We start the session with a warm-up with elements of Healing Tao qigong, Bioenergetics and Reconnective Dance. This warming-up is followed by the breathing session that will last approximately one hour. We end with relaxation, integration and sharing.
