BEFORE WE BEGIN – INFORMATION FOR YOUR FIRST SESSION

What to expect with an online Biodynamic Breathwork session

We facilitate sessions based on the Biodynamic Breathwork & Trauma Release System (BBTRS).

During sessions, you will be guided into an embodiment practice using the following elements:

  • Connected breathing
  • Self-touch
  • Movement: shake/unwind
  • Vocal toning and sound
  • Emotional expression
  • Meditation 

This modality helps to integrate and process trauma, balance the nervous system, and release core tension in the body by helping it move out of contraction and stagnation.

It offers you an opportunity to reconnect to your body and become present with your emotions and felt sensations, leaving you feeling less overwhelmed, more open and in tune with your body, your needs and with others. 

You can find more information about Biodynamic Breathwork here.


How to Prepare

Install a space where you can sit comfortably on a cushion, yoga mat or chair.

Make sure that you also can move freely, as movement is an essential part of this work.

Have some tissues and a bowl on hand in case of the need to release e.g. spitting.

Choose a space where you won't be interrupted during your 90-minute session.

Have your computer, tablet or phone positioned so that we can see you from the waist up.

Try not to eat an hour or two before your session, we do not recommend to do a session on a full stomach.

Have a space for integration at the end of the session. Have pillows and blankets available for this resting phase. Most prefer to lay down, but you can also sit up. 

Optional: have water or tea for completion of the session.

Optional: have a journal nearby to process what came up for you during the session.


Self-care after sessions

Be kind and gentle to yourself; this work is powerful. 

Drink plenty of water, and if possible eat foods that are easily digested.

Rest, meditate, walk in nature and connect to your resources, preferably daily. 

Keep a journal to log your journey and to track your thoughts and emotions. Journaling is a great way to process your healing journey.

If anything comes up or if you have questions, please contact your facilitator by email or messaging app.
