Surya’s breathwork practice, designed to help us expand our awareness and consciousness, begins with a reconnection to our current intentions, and what challenges we may be facing. A simple two-part breath gently activates what Ayurveda calls our “energetic body,” and helps move out of our mind, body, and spirit whatever we don’t need. This active breathwork fills your system with energy and gives you direct access to the healing potential of your own being. As emotions clear, we discover a space of stillness, vibrancy, and peace, allowing us to build a deeper relationship with all that we are. Each session ends, if desired, with space for discussion, meditative reflection, and guidance for creative, on-going practice. As the buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh liked to say, breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, and in this session, you will experience that awakening your own life, too.

As you feel your body and spirit activate, you find yourself in touch with the healing potential of your own breath and being. Sound and breath meld together, emotions clear, and you step into a space of deep stillness and peace. Each session ends with a space for a gentle return to the the word, including creative practice or meditative reflection that you can carry with you after your experience.
