Whenever we are in a state of panic, our heart rate tends to go up and our breathing becomes hurried yet shallow. The first thing we hear when we try to talk to someone is usually, “Calm down and take a deep breath.” It is a wise and practical advice in this type of situation. When we take control of our breathing, we can also regain power over our emotions, our thoughts, and the rest of our body. The process has been studied since time immemorial and is now seeing a resurgence. You could learn more about it by attending breathwork workshops.
Release Trauma and Tensions
These workshops will help you to release past trauma and tensions – things that are holding you back from enjoying your life and doing the things that you want to do. Everyone has experiences that have shaped them and not all of them can be remembered with fondness. Some still have the power to make us cry, shake, and scream. Others make us sad and remorseful. The important thing is to make peace with the past and learn from the experience. Breathwork helps us to let go of the pain and the burdens so that we can move on with a lightness of feeling.
Escape to Beautiful Locations
These workshops can be found everywhere. Some are in the city where people can come and go at any time of the day for their convenience. They can make the practice part of their daily lives. Others are held at exotic locations around the world. These places lend their own magic to the entire experience. They are also a good excuse to get away in a unique vacation. If you are tired of the usual hangouts at the beach, then try this activity. You will still be close to nature but you will have a more purposeful and rewarding experience. There will also be plenty of downtime for exploration.
Meet Interesting People
The social component of these workshops should not be overlooked. Sometimes these types of activities lead us to people who have the same worldview. We can meet individuals who share our values and our visions of the future. They can become dear friends who will support us in our endeavors and be there for us when we’re down. We can also look forward to the expertise of the instructors who will guide classes with competence and compassion. They can become mentors both inside and outside of the class. These are truly multi-faceted experiences that will help us to grow in different ways.
