Breathe! Online with Linda Nicholls
We're excited to launch our first Haven Online offering - Breathe! This new workshop incorporates highlights from Linda's popular breathwork programs at The Haven and is designed for digital delivery.
Program description, benefits & outcomes:
Breathing is far more than the unconscious functioning of our autonomic nervous system, which we usually take for granted. It is the cord that ties the soul to the body, the movement of spirit in matter, and the integrating force for the multiple dimensions of our whole-person existence. We can learn to breathe in ways that liberate our self from ingrained restrictions and free our body, mind, soul and emotions to fuel and fertilize fresh new possibilities.
By learning to breathe consciously we can experience a surprisingly wide range of benefits. Some of the rewards that people have experienced include:
- Deep relaxation and improved sleep
- Soothing of anxiety, tension and pain
- Enlivened energy and sensory enrichment
- Enhanced presence and spontaneous creativity
- Activation of motivation, intention and clarity of purpose
- Heightened capacity for interpersonal relatedness - even with those who are distanced physically from us
This one-day workshop is an excellent introduction to a variety of methods for conscious breathing - no prior experience with meditation, yoga, or breathwork is necessary. It is also an integrative complement for participants who have experienced breathwork at The Haven in Come Alive, Breathe!, Body, Breath & Energy, and others, and are wanting to review, refresh, and renew conscious breathing habits. Participants will complete the workshop with a breadth of take-home practices and tools to continue to develop beneficial patterns for living well.
In this exciting new online program, conscious breathing expert Linda Nicholls will offer physiological information, guidelines, coaching, and practice with a variety of forms.
We will gather on Zoom for two, 2-hour sessions on Saturday, April 18th:
- Session 1: 10am-12pm PT
- Session 2: 2pm-4pm PT
Join us to rediscover and revitalize your amazing, embodied being to experience calm, release, renewal and interconnection in community.
This online program will be hosted on Zoom, a video conferencing software that is free for participants and easy to use on a variety of devices. You will need to have a device (desktop computer or laptop recommended; tablet or smartphone can work too), reliable internet connection, and sound capabilities (headset recommended; built in or external microphone or speaker systems can work too). You will be invited to join the call up to 30 minutes early to receive technical support.
Note: The link to join the call and Haven Online How-to guide will be emailed to participants the day before the program. All registrants will receive a reminder email the day of the program as well.
