  • Shamanic Breathwork

    The GATEWAY / a Portal for Growth & Wellness

    $35.00

    This gentle yet powerful breath practice is intended to facilitate a healing experience. I was introduced to this work in 2013 and found it so profound and effective that I felt the call to learn this pranayama technique. I received my Breathwork facilitation training from Michael Brian Baker of “The Breath Center.” The intention of this practice, different for each individual, is to: • relieve stress, • unwind blockages in our energetic and physical bodies • release physical pain • release emotional trauma • release unprocessed emotions The recipient, may leave feeling: *lighter *happier *inspired *creative *blissful *clear-headed *invigorated *free* This powerful, simple practice gets you present, oxygenated and activated with life force energy (also called Qi, Prana and Kundalini energy) to balance your nervous system and literally clear out some of your “stuff.” You don’t even need to know what it is! This is an intelligent energy working with your body’s own inherent wisdom. This practice is done lying down and my sessions may include, with your permission, touch, sound, essential oils, shamanism and energy work. Do not do Breathwork if you’re experiencing cardiovascular problems, seizure disorders, pregnancy, glaucoma, high blood pressure, strokes, history of aneurysms, recent surgeries/injuries, heavy medication,retinal detachment, severe mental illness. Space is limited to 9 participants. Please Venmo $35 to @Robin-Solo to reserve your spot and write in your attendance time; 9:30am or 10:45am. For additional information, please see flyer below. I look forward to sharing this beautiful practice with you! ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Bio: Robin, an L.A. native, studied art and film and has had a 15 year career in the entertainment industry and a fifteen year career teaching Pilates and owning a Pilates studio in Venice, CA. Her passion now is Pranayama (Breathwork). Like many of us, childhood wasn’t a picnic, trauma was created and compounded, armor was worn and walls constructed. These are invisible but very real. She’s been on a healing path over 10 years dropping patterns of thought & behavior that served in the past but limit in the present. Pushing through the discomfort & choosing vulnerability has been key to Robin’s continued transformation. She was introduced to this work in 2013 and found it so profound and effective that she felt the call to learn this Pranayama technique and share it with you! ~~~~~~~~~~~~ **Parking and Entry.
