Breathwork is the use of breathing techniques in order to achieve altered states of consciousness and to have a variety of effects on physical and mental well-being.  Derived from multiple spiritual and pre-scientific traditions from around the world, Breathwork can be helpful for relaxation and stress in a similar way to meditation.  During a Breathwork session, individuals will typically lie down and be instructed to breathe using particular methods, depending on the sub-type of Breathwork.  In addition to a practitioner, Breathwork sessions will often have "sitters" present. Sitters are individuals who provide emotional or physical support to those practicing Breathwork.   Most Breathwork sessions last around an hour.

There are several sub-types of Breathwork including but not limited to:

Vivation, Holotropic Breathwork, Soma Breathwork, Integrative Breathwork, Transformational Breathwork, Shamanic Breathwork, Conscious Connected Breathing, Radiance Breathwork, Zen Yoga Breathwork.

Rob first experienced Breathwork whilst travelling Central and South America in 2017 and has been practising it ever since, starting to offer guided sessions with people in early 2023.  He feels the most powerful expression of the work is to be found in SOMA Breathwork, developed by Niraj Naik.  Niraj essentially cured himself from ulcerative colitis having been told by doctors it was incurable and that he’d be on medication for the rest of his life.  

SOMA utilises rhythmic breathing which hyper-oxygenates the body, bringing in more oxygen and blowing out more carbon dioxide than normal. This alters the pH of the blood stream and also creates a strong electromagnetic field and current to flow through the body. This increases your Level Of Vibrational Energy (L.O.V.E.). With a higher vibrational state, negative emotions and trauma can be cleansed from the mind and body and your ability to manifest becomes totally effortless.
The diaphragmatic breathing technique we teach stimulates the largest lymphatic organ in the body, creating a powerful cleansing effect and strengthening your immune system.
We employ extended exhalation and vocal toning techniques to tap into the power of the vagus nerve to switch off stress and connect with your subconscious mind.
Life is just a series of inhales and exhales; when you pause your breath you press pause on life.
Your quality of thought is also linked to breath: erratic breathing leads to erratic thinking, while smooth consistent breathing leads to smooth, coherent thought.
The breath retention components of SOMA Breath are totally safe. It allows you a few minutes to totally slow down and pause your life to be fully in the present moment. You enter a profound meditative state and connect to yourself on a personal level.
Using the power of affirmations, guided mental imagery techniques, and self hypnosis you can reprogram your subconscious operating system and even influence your autonomic nervous system.
The activation of Yogic energetic locks throughout the Awakening Ceremony creates sexual energy, which is the source of creativity and imagination. You experience states of ecstatic bliss and many different states of consciousness.
Powerful emotional releases can occur during SOMA Breath sessions and negative imprints from the past can be cleared. “Divine downloads” or moments of deep insight and inspiration makes the SOMA Breath experience truly unforgettable.
