Breath of Grace Yoga                                                                               

"In the remembrance of God are wealth, miraculous spiritual powers and the nine treasures. In the remembrance of God are knowledge, and the essence of wisdom. In the remembrance of God, duality is removed. In the remembrance of God are purifying baths at sacred shrines of pilgrimage. In the remembrance of God, one attains honor in the Court of the Lord. In the remembrance of God, one becomes good. In the remembrance of God, one flowers in fruition."  

- Guru Arjan Dev Ji

Breath of Grace Yoga is a safe and natural breathing method that increases our ability to feel and resolve the effects of our past by connecting us to our subconscious mind. It is a circular breathing pattern that creates a seamless connection between the inhalation and exhalation by eliminating the pauses that occur in the natural breathing cycle.

The effects of this process are both powerful and unexpected. When we focus our breath directly in this way, we are relieved of the negative charge in the cellular memory giving us the understanding of our full ability to change our life to the way we want it to be. We are free to live a fulfilled life because we have been plugged into the infinite intelligence and life-force energy of the Universe.

Breathwork is an ancient healing practice that is derived from many lineages, in particular the Buddhist, yogic, and shamanic traditions. These traditions have long considered breathing practices a vital tool toward the goal of enlightenment. These traditions believed that by observing and regulating the breath, beneficial changes in health, intuition, and emotional control occur. Today, we use them for healing purposes to combat the stress of everyday life, Heal a variety of imbalances in the body including addictions, resolve trauma, and to de-age. Yes, de-age. 

During the counterculture period of the 1960s and ’70s, modern therapeutic techniques such as Holotropic Breathwork (Stanislav Grof) and Rebirthing (Leonard Orr) were developed (or birthed!) as a result of the consciousness movement in the West. Once considered taboo in the field of psychotherapy, breathwork therapies have since developed their own theoretical frameworks and have grown into highly effective forms of therapy worldwide. 

How Breath of Grace Yoga Works

The subconscious is full of repressed emotions, trauma, and belief systems that limit our ability to take charge of our life. This is the root cause of unhappiness. When we learn to breathe fully and consciously, we begin to transform through a deep cleansing of the subconscious mind. We can release the pain and karma accumulated throughout life and remove the subconscious ghosts in our energy field. 

During this process, we may see the episodes in our lives (past and present) that have created our story. We may see the thoughts that are responsible for our problems and patterns. We may even experience our own birth, hence the name of origin, “rebirthing”.

While engaging in this conscious connected breathing pattern, we are infused with prana, also known as life-force energy or chi, which creates the change of a negative charge in the cells to a positive. As a result, the old toxic blueprints fall away- you are transformed and liberated. You come into a relationship with your own intuitive power, your own intuitive wisdom, your own soul and through pure awareness recognize the truth of who you are.

The oxygen generated during this circular breathing process creates a surge of energy which awakens the spine, opens the chakras, and purifies the cells. It produces a neurophysiological effect that is often described as nirvana, ecstatic bliss, making love to God, transcendental, or heaven on earth… 

Mostly you will feel ALIVE in a way you never yet experienced. 

A breathwork session can contain a full range of emotions as well as profound insights. Somatic sensations include waves of energy, tingling, and occasional localized pain. Breathers can experience sounds, smells, visual sensations and psychedelic images. You may also find yourself connecting with a loved one that has passed over. Senses become fluid and flow into each other. Physical sensations turn into emotions, emotions transform into powerful insights. The waves of nurturing, unconditional love you can experience even in just one session is a testament to its effect on opening the heart.

A Typical Breath of Grace Yoga Session

It is recommended that you take conscious connected breathwork sessions with a qualified Breathworker in a safe setting. Here you will get the undivided attention of a trained practitioner, with direct, intuitive verbal guidance unlike being alone or in a group setting.

A Breathwork Practitioner is a professionally trained facilitator who guides your breath in a way that enables the transformational process to occur. The practitioner also guides and supports you through the variety of feelings, thoughts, and body sensations you may experience during a session. A trained Breathworker is highly skilled at helping you identify and trace complex issues in your life to their origins in your unconscious belief systems, emotions, nervous system and can fascilitate the process so you can see it all from a higher perspective.

There are three parts to a Breath of Grace Yoga session. It begins with a conversation between the breathwork practitioner and the breather about their goals and intention for the session. The second part, the breather lies down and is put into the breathing rhythm known as circular breathing  which lasts for about one hour. The third part is called the integration period.

Proper integration from your breathwork session is very important. The cells have been activated and there is a lot of energy that may have been released. This is the time where you can share your experience and your practitioner can provide supportive feedback. Affirmations, music, and mantra chanting may all be included depending on what shows up in the session. Each session is unique and catered to the individual.  We take all the time necessary to allow the body, mind, and spirit to reach a point of completion with the session.

Why Breath Of Grace Yoga?

The Aquarian Age has taken breathwork to a new level. This is the age of Intuition. We need a direct, intuitive experience of the Source energy from which we came. We need something fast to heal us. Something that will go to the root cause of the condition and clear it. Breath of Grace Yoga does just this. It is the transformational process which helps us master our mind and body enabling us to live in a state of blissful abundance, where we can continue to grow and thrive vitally.


Meditation and Pranayama

Expand to Infinity 

Change comes from within, and like anything, it’s a process.  When we make a decision to change something in our lives through meditation, we are going inward. We are choosing a dynamic option because meditation accelerates the process of change. It seems that most people come to meditation after every other option has failed or stopped working. Ultimately, this—at the very bottom, out of options—is where the fundamental change begins to occur. Mediation is the natural healing ability of the body, mind, and spirit together, and it is a potent medicine. In meditation, we have options! We have specific, practical tools that carefully and precisely support the mind and guide the body through the use of breath, mantra (sound), mudra (hand posture), and eye focus (drishti). 

Pranayama is a form of meditation that uses a focused breathing technique to give you more life force. “Prana” actually means life force. “ayama” means to regulate or lengthen. The powerful combination of “Prana” and “ayama” gives us Pranayamas—yogic breathing exercises that have the ability to quickly increase our energy, release stress, improve our mental clarity, and improve our physical health.

We are incredibly fortunate now to have access to a wide range of meditation techniques which are truly extraordinary. There are even meditations tailored to specific issues. There are meditations that reduce stress, resolve addictions, increase vitality, quell anxiety, achieve laser focus, lower blood pressure, detox the kidneys, transmute grief, resolve inner anger, open the chakras and so much more. We can actually be precise in targeted meditations to achieve maximum effectiveness.  At the end of the day, meditation can simply be used to quiet the mind so we can tune in to the intuition of the heart and experience the magical transformation that occurs when we tap into our inner stillness.

Some of us may be familiar with the myth that when you sit down you should be able to quiet your mind. The mind generates thousands of thoughts per second. When you sit quietly and turn the focus inward, you become very aware of what is going on in the background of your mind. Distractions happen. Allow and include everything. Just keep going back to the mantra, breath, or other point of focus. Let all thoughts be processed by the mantra and the breath. 

Another myth is that mediation is only for people who can sit still. I can barely sit still even after twenty-five years of practice! This is why I practice Pranayama. - breath excercises. 

Meditation is for everyone at any point in their life. You don’t have to be a yogi or a spiritual person. You can do almost any type of meditation simply sitting in a chair. 

To begin meditating just start and have patience with yourself. You will be amazed at what you can achieve.
