Friday, November 16th -- Breathwork for Recovery
With Laura Pensiero
7pm - 9pm
Many of us struggle with some form of addiction. Are you constantly checking social media? Are you feeling stressed from overworking? Do you struggle with drinking or eating too much? Or do you count every calorie you consume?
Breathwork is a two-stage pranayama breathing which facilitates the release of stuck energy and emotions in the body. Through the breath, you will gain mental clarity and physical and emotional relief and relaxation. This releases endorphins and enables the letting go of addictive behaviors, negative thought patterns and assists in recovery.
Laura uses a combination of guided visualization, the breath and Reiki to coax the body into a deeply relaxed and open state conducive to healing. Trauma is pulled up and released physically, emotionally and spiritually.
During this workshop, you will leave behind the layers that no longer serve you. You will shed the addictions holding you back, allowing your true essence to shine through.
