What we're about

Creating a sacred space of worship to connect to source through breathwork. Breathwork is not a "religion" but the practice can bring on spiritual awakenings. “Breathwork” refers to respiratory therapies, rooted in Eastern practices utilized to effectively reduce stress-related illness, heal trauma, depression, heart disease, cancer, and other preventable diseases in a safe and non-invasive way. Through this Pranayama practice you may experience the healing ability innately each one of us has through the simple use of your own breath.

About Ceremonial Breathwork…

Ceremonial Breathwork is a rare individual style of breath practice created around newly discovered sacred plant medicine ceremonies from indigenous religions worldwide. The BREATH is the medicine. The experience incorporates Shamanic elements including the singing of “Icaro” (song of blessing), burning of Palos Santos, and Anointing of scared oils allowing for the connection to nature, the spirit world, and universal oneness. Because of these elements it is a unique experience not to be missed and allows for deep gentle healing for your body, mind and spirit.

What to expect at a session…

We begin with a welcome and share with intent for the session. You will then be taught the three part breath practice consisting of two inhales, and one exhale all conducted with an open mouth. During the practice you will lay in “savasana” or resting state and follow Melissa’s instruction with periods of breath retention enhanced with inspirational music in a safe and sacred space. At the end of the session there will be 15-30 minutes of integration when you may share your experience and allow for what is called grounding or “getting back into” the body after the practice has concluded.

The atmosphere is safe, loving, non-judgmental and very divine. It is open to anyone over the age of twelve regardless of your beliefs, culture, or creed. Skeptics especially encouraged to join. No experience in yoga or breathwork is necessary!

Who should NOT do Breathwork…

The gentle pranayam methods of Ceremonial Breathwork do not promote hyperventilation or re-traumatization unlike other form of breathwork such as holotropic or rebirthing allowing it, for the most part, to be non-invasive. HOWEVER, breathwork is not for everyone and you should consult your doctor first if you have a history of serious epileptic seizure, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, major cardiovascular issues, serious psychiatric symptoms, or a history of aneurysms. If you recently have had surgery and still have stitches or other medical or physical conditions which would impair your ability to breathe deeply and lay on your back on the floor for an hour then perhaps Ceremonial Breathwork is not for you.

Please do your due diligence, Breathwork can bring up emotions and release hidden traumas, so find a practitioner you trust with qualifications. This powerful healing modality is safe if properly performed with a trained practitioner.

The I AM Soul Jam Dance & Drum Circle

Studio D Yoga

It is my belief that group dance rituals have mostly disappeared from Western Culture...that every person can benefit from shaking loose energy and dancing together with no rules...allowing the embodiment of the ecstasy of life. Join us at Studio D Yoga for this I AM drum circle and soul dance. April is the month of the beginning of the new Zodiacal cycle and the wheel of the year. We will share the energy of shared joy as we dance the Spring and our own divine spark into being! We'll do a little guided meditation to plant the new seeds we wish to grow... a little re-membering...a little renewal of the body... a little movement to release our old and outgrown... and a little heart opening to bring in all the good stuff for 2019. It's a little different every month...different themes, meditations and new music. Bring a drum or a rattle, if you don't dance. Bring special items or stones to place on the altar. Bring friends. Bring your festive threads. Shine like the star that you are. *$10 suggested donation, but don't let that stop you from coming*
