What is involved in this training?
In the 6 weeks of this training course, you will be guided through a series of lessons teaching you the basics of how to breathe well. We will work with a practice known as Vibhagha Pranayama, which will gently open the lungs, increasing your lung capacity, increasing your awareness and control of the lungs, and improving your breathing technique. The sessions will be 45 minutes each, and will also include some gentle movement to release tension in the body, to enable you to sit for the breathing practices, and relax more completely.
The course materials include
- weekly live training, delivered at a time agreed by consensus, recorded and made available for you to access in your own time
- a beautifully designed journal you can complete digitally or print, to record your thoughts, experiences and insights along the journey
- relaxation MP3s you can download and listen to in your own time
- a weekly article to help you in your understanding of what you are learning
- a private Facebook group where there will be daily support and encouragement from me, and a place to share with your course-mates, so we can all learn from one another
In the first week we will begin with the basics of breath control, starting with a simple breathing technique, and working on relaxing the body with gentle movements. We will also learn to sit well for breathing practice, and I will help you find a sitting posture that works for you.
In Week Two we will be looking at the lower part of the lungs, and working with a series of breathing exercises that will expand and increase capacity in the abdominal area of the lungs. You will learn of the many benefits that this style of breathing can give you, and will develop your ability to sit, and to relax body and mind.
In Week Three we will be working with the ‘mid chest’ area, learning how to breathe better into this area, as well as continuing to develop the practice from the previous week. There are many health benefits to this particular style of breathing, and I will share these with you as we practice together.
In Week Four we will be working with the upper lung, and gaining all the benefits that this gives. We will be continuing to develop the practices from the previous weeks, as well as relaxing and releasing tension in the body. By this week, if you have maintained the practice regularly, you will be starting to see some changes in your wellbeing.
In this penultimate week we will bring the work of the previous weeks together to work with the whole lung, breathing fully into the lower, middle and upper parts of the lungs. This is the optimum way to breathe, and when you master this, you will have a powerful tool at your disposal that will help you maintain wellbeing and relaxation, and manage and reduce stress when it arises.
In this final week we will explore a beautiful pranayama practice that brings together and develops the work done over the last few weeks. The Pranava Aum is a practice that will help you truly connect to the moment, relaxing mind and body, and bringing you into deep connection with your spiritual dimension. You will love the way your mind and body feels after this practice.
Hello dear friend
I am Esther, your guide on this journey to wellbeing and resilience through the breath.
My life was transformed when I learned to breathe! A lifelong asthmatic, I started smoking at 17, and discovered marijuana at 19. Self destructive behaviour was my norm, and for 20 years I managed stress through cigarettes, drugs, alcohol and rage.
My salvation came in the form of a breakdown at 40, and yoga teacher training when I was 41. Through learning to breathe I was able to process my emotions, relax my body and mind, manage and reduce stress, heal my pain and learn to be with myself for the first time in my life. I gave up drinking and smoking (yes, both on the same day!) on October 12 2014, and I have been joyfully sober and smoke free since. I still have asthma, and I still get stressed, but now I have powerful tools to deal with both. My reliance on asthma medication has reduced as my resilience and breath control has increased.
I love teaching people to breathe, to see the incredible transformation that happens when you learn to respect and work with your body, and appreciate every breath you take. I am so excited to guide you on this journey to resilience and relaxation.
I have gained a new perspective
Through working with Esther, I was finally able to gain a new perspective on issues affecting my life. Recovery is not always about rapid progress, but having patience with the process, and this was something I had apparently overlooked before making time to talk with Esther. As a result, I now know that peace is possible.Casey
