Breathing your way to mindfulness
Remember who you are. Remember who you are. These deep, soulful words resonated through the room as I lay breathing deeply, inhaling and exhaling in a continuous movement while I observed the act of thinking, feeling and sensing.
This connected breathing is the natural breathing rhythm of babies and animals. Guided by Sammy Kent, this breath workshop held at Soulfit Wellness Institute at Salisbury was certainly a unique and enlightened way to spend a Sunday.
Based on the rebirthing principles discovered by Leonard Orr in a bathtub in the 1960s, rebirthing breathing raises the level of qi energy in the body, thus activating any unresolved issues or blockages before releasing them and allowing the energy to flow freely again.
The three-hour workshop began with some history about the rebirthing breathing movement and then moved onto discovering how to use our breath to embrace our true essence and embody our highest self. We danced to the beat of our heart before being guided into a deep one-hour meditation with music, incense and essential oils.
2017 is the year to try something different. This breath workshop is just one of the many events Soulfit Wellness Institute is hosting this year. Events range from food to money and even astrology. Two upcoming events are Restart with Real Food and Creative Business Setup.
Restart 2017 with real food. In February, discover nutrition with Leah Williamson, a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and founder of Brisbane Paleo Group. This workshop will cover food labels, meal planning, controlling food cravings and good fats.
If you're considering starting up a business or are just seeking inspiration, Jaharn Giles will explore creative business setups in April. Jaharn Giles, founder of yourcreativestart.com will cover branding, social media, budgeting and business setup.
