Breathwork is a generic name used to cover various breathing modalities. They all use different techniques but share many of the same principles. Each modality has its own particular approach when guiding people to the best connection to their breath.
With practice, our breathing patterns can help to soothe and de-escalate the issues arising from a system stuck in a sympathetic response mode and in some cases do even more than that, by supporting the parasympathetic NS to achieve a more relaxed and efficient level of functioning.
Although breathwork is having a resurgence in the Western world, it has long been at the core of many spiritual and physical Eastern practices for hundreds of years. Breathwork practices are most commonly recognised in the early Yogi/Buddhist philosophies and cultures.
I have always had physical health & nutrition at a forefront of my living and focus. In 2014 I encountered a practicing Shaman Adrian Rivas who was holding a retreat in West Cork. Drawn to this from my curious nature for practices that are somewhat 'outside the box'. I experienced a very unique and profound sense of self-discovery where more questions than answers were discovered. This quest led me to many places and teachers with the focus of immersing more into the possibilities of breath practice. In 2015 went on to Canada to study under Robin Clements (Breathwave.net).
"Breathwork with Ronan O’Brien of Breathwave Ireland both via Zoom & in-person has opened up a whole dimension of healing & movement through my body that I never imagined possible. It’s a very natural awakening of your senses but also a very cathartic experience should you wish to adopt an intention."
