This spring I am open to doing private sessions or very small groups at Stoney Run Park in Roland Park on weekdays 11-7pm, or perhaps if you live close to me doing something in your backyard on the weekends. Prices start at $250 for a session/group.
Baltimore Breathwork is a hybrid of breathwork and sound healing. Sound healing uses crystal sound bowls, rattles, tuning forks, and chimes to realign the mind, body, and soul. Breathwork is a powerful, active meditation technique for self-healing. This particular breathing pattern moves stuck energy, and bypasses the thinking mind while opening the heart. This is a powerful tool for processing unresolved emotions. Most people leave sessions feeling lighter, and more connected to their authentic self.
The breathwork is an active breath through the mouth, not the nose. Students breathe while listening to a dynamic playlist. Liz chooses each song carefully with a penchant for using rock-n-roll, soul, and even classic punk music with just the right placement in the mix. Class is very much a musical healing journey. During the second portion of class the music slows down and attendees bathe in the vibrational energy of the sound bath. Participants often experience some euphoria afterwards like a runner's high.
Baltimore Breathwork is a super powerful way to help out the sympathetic nervous system. The more a person works with the breath, the more his/her energy will move and release blocks. At a Baltimore Breathwork group session everyone uses the breath as a tool to support his/her own emotional healing or relaxation in a supportive environment. Some come to a session with an intention to dig deep and move stuck energy while others drop-in to unwind after a difficult week. Those with a regular practice report that they are less fatigued, less stressed out and more capable of connecting with their higher self. This method of Breathwork is powerful— it can help to heal old stuff that could otherwise hold you back from feeling great and reaching your goals. Some people come because they feel a connection to spirit during the practice--whatever that means to them individually. Breathwork can be a door into the mystical. For others it's secular. What it means to you is personal and private--but we can feel safe to have use the energy of the group to manifest joy.
The formula is a 3-step process of pranayama breathing that lasts for about 30 minutes while listening to an eclectic soundtrack. The first breath is deep into your belly where most of your energy is stuck. Without exhaling you inhale a second time high up into the chest. This brings the energy from the low belly up through the heart to the top of the lungs. You then exhale through the mouth and continue a steady rhythm. During your breathing you will lie on a yoga mat covered, if desired, by a blanket. In a typical class, we may scream or laugh to raise the intensity mid-way through the experience. The second half of our session is comprised of both a sound bath and period of relaxation. The intention is that you leave the session lighter and empowered. Not every class includes sound healing, but most do.
I am so happy that I stumbled upon this practice 6 months ago. I always leave class feeling lighter, more grounded, and positive. It's the one hour a week I am able to commit 100% of my attention to myself. Recently I took a break from the practice after attending regularly for months (life gets in the way). I was finally able to attend another session and when I left I felt like myself for the first time in months! I was able to rid myself of the negative energy I didn't even know I had built up.
I just can't say enough great things about this practice. And Liz is so welcoming and makes you feel right at home. If you're hesitant about trying it, just go for it! You won’t regret it.
Ahhh-mazing! I went to the class on Saturday and really enjoyed it. From the relaxation to rebel yell and laughter, it all felt so freeing. Liz is the best! I highly recommend.
Healing. Good Energy. Love. All the things I search for in a practice.
Liz has a talent for making people feel simultaneously at peace and invigorated during her breathwork class. The way I feel during this experience is the same way I felt when I reached the top of La Bufa in Mexico - powerful, amazed, and overall grateful. I highly recommend that you don’t just try out the class, but make it a part of your life like I did. You’re doing yourself a favor.
I can not say enough about the experience I had at my first class on Saturday. It was moving and emotional and really opened my eyes to some things I have had stored away under lock and key. As I am learning to navigate my way through a new cancer diagnosis, I think the soundbath is just what I need to help me dig deep and release clutter that is holding me back. I truly felt different afterwards and things Elizabeth spoke of are ringing through my head since. I can’t wait to go back and see where it leads me. Thank you so much, Elizabeth! ❤️❤️❤️
“It’s like a sauna for your soul” -my thoughts today when walking out of class
Another great breathwork healing workshop with Elizabeth I attended on Saturday. In this session I worked really hard on releasing fear, affirming my inner strength and sense of worth, and feeling joy. I was able to achieve these things and left feeling happier, more confident, and at peace with myself.
I attended a Baltimore Breathwork session yesterday and it was incredibly powerful and healing. I arrived carrying the pain of a recent breakup, fear and sadness over our nation's political situation, and struggling in the early stages of alcohol recovery and toll that cigarettes are taking on my health. The Amaranthine Museum was an extraordinary space for this work, and Liz's guidance took us into a deep and powerful place where I was able to find both physical and emotional strength, as well as a feeling of inner peace and release from the pain that I had been holding. I cannot recommend this experience highly enough.
Yesterday I experienced my first breath-work healing sound bath. I went in with no expectations. I am still trying to find the precise words to explain my experience: Intense, tingly, movement, stillness, emotional, trippy? I felt connected to my spirit which can sometimes be hard because of all of the rush, story, craziness that goes on in our day to day lives. Doing this was a true gift of self-love to myself. Liz thank you for bringing this to Baltimore.
