Breathe Here Now

April 2nd, 2013

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to take part in a radical form of healing offered at IHH Yoga Loft in Daytona Beach, Florida. This jem of healing modality offered at my yoga Daytona Beach “home” is called Transformational Breathing®. Yogis know that Pranayama is one of the five principles of Yoga and one of the 8 limbs of Ashtanga yoga. In Sanskrit Pranayama is broken down like this: “Prana” is “life force/energy”, “Yama” is “discipline”, and Ayama “extension” Pranayama is the yogic control of breath. This is beneficial to health, steadies the body and is highly conducive to the concentration of the mind.

Transformational Breathing® is not the average “Yogic Breath”, it is an optimal form of oxygenating the body. Transformational Breathing® was developed after extensive training and experiences of teaching yoga, Rebirthing and many other modalities. Yogic Breathers are trained to control the exhale which produces tension and blocks the energy in the solar plexus if the breather carries it over to everyday breathing. It is essential that those muscles be able to relax fully for free energy flow, as well as have control for yoga. Transformational Breathing® is “The Yogic Breath of Integration”.

Yoga uses the deep belly breathing to support physical stretching postures. Transformational Breathing® is not a replacement for the important physical exercise and body toning provided by yoga.  However, Transformational Breathing® achieves different results than yoga and makes the practice of yoga more enjoyable and more effective.

Transformational Breathing® is a self-empowering and deeply healing process that creates great transformation in one’s life. This dynamic powerful technique uses a high vibration energy force created by a specific breathing pattern. Transformational Breathing® allows us to breathe better, to have more energy, to feel more peaceful and loving, and ultimately to attain higher levels of consciousness.

This was my second event facilitated by Amara Gray at IHH Yoga Loft that I have participated in. The first, a couple weeks before was about Unleashing the Power of the Subconscious Mind. Both workshops create natural expansion of awareness in the human energy field. Truly mind blowing experiences that after one session i’m not sure I understand it enough to explain but I will go ahead and give it a try.

Unleashing of the Subconscious was a group hypnotherapy session in which we were guided into a trance like state. Then we were taken on a journey to find our higher sense of self. Amara Gray took us deep into the mind and encouraged us to release limiting beliefs and free the I am.

The Transformational Breathing® session was a half day retreat where where we learned a 3 part breathing technique to efficiently oxygenate our body. It was almost like our bodies became pumps where we inhaled life force and exhaled dis-ease. The breath was the medicine to detoxify our bodies and minds. After 10 Connected breaths of Joy I felt light headed and a little dry mouthed and light  headed. After 100 Connected breaths of Joy I felt empowered with the feeling of pure ecstasy throughout my existence.

Let me be clear that there were no “drugs” taken, the blissful high was self induced by my own breath with the guidance of Amara Gray. After one session, I will tell you that I’m completely hooked! I am looking forward to many more sessions and learning how to facilitate more Joy into each breath of my life.

Transformational Breathing®, Beginners’s Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Gentle Hatha Yoga, Kundalinin Yoga, Guided Meditations, Reiki and BellyFit® are just a beginning to what is offered at International Health and Healing Yoga Loft. The next Power of the Subconscious to Change Your Life workshop will be on April 13th. I am at IHH Yoga Loft Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10 am offering All-Levels Yoga and Wednesdays at 5:30pm. Tuesdays and Thursdays I am at IHH Yoga Loft for 10am for BellyFit®.
