After pounding the pavements of London town last September, you really get to notice the human condition in all its manifest glory, the hunchbacks, the fashion victims, the money men and money women, the dejected beggars, the local lads with tins of lager at the station on a Saturday night ready for action. I get a sense of English culture being mostly solidified and stuck in past but always around the edges is something extraordinary is going on...a place where humans are willing to let go go of long held 'norms' and jump into the unknown (especially the guy on the tube with really huge stripey platform boots).
How we take in a full breath is a good indicator of how much we can 'take in' new ideas or inspiration. If one' inhale is shallow, sharp or thin, it is likely that my client has gone through something in the past to get that way. So when I conduct a breathwork session, it my role as a breath coach to encourage you to lose your fear of taking in a full breath. What will happen if I breath fully? It might hurt, I might cry, I might laugh etc. Once we get past this restriction limitation of the inhale and teach you to surrender on the exhale you can open into some interesting spaces. Sounds simple? It is. But actually consistently moving into a full regular, rhythmic breath can be quite a challenge, but the rewards are endless.
