Through the practice of pranayama, we fill our emotional centers with breath, then purify them through our hearts and release that which needs to be let go—allowing more space for our own unique vibrations to be expressed.
Plant Music Breathwork is different from other breathwork classes in that it is accompanied by music generated by plants. Plants are living beings just like us, but much more sensitive. Through Plant Music, we monitor data harvested from subtle fluctuations of plant biorhythms and translate them into sound. These fluctuations are, in part, a result of a plant's response to its environment—both in realms humans perceive and those that only a plant can sense.
Through Plant Music, we experience a harmonious sonic environment that is not only relaxing, but may also respond to the change in energy of a room due to our relaxed state. This becomes very useful in exercises related to tuning into one's feelings and intuition.
*Breathwork is best done on an empty stomach, so please try not to eat for at least two hours before.
*Please bring a yoga mat and/or blanket and a journal.
