Breathwork Group In Roland Park:
Our group is taking a break during the coronavirus threat.
It may be quite a few months until we meet again but it will be wonderful then. There are suggestions for some online breathwork communities on the facebook private group Baltimore Breathwork. There are both free classes and paid classes listed around the country.
Baltimore Breathwork is a hybrid of both 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, clearer, and more connected to their heart and soul.
The breathwork is an active breath with the mouth, not the nose. We breathe while listening to carefully curated playlist music that includes pop and rock during the beginning of class. Then the music will slow down, and then you will bathe in the vibrational energy of crystal sound bowls and other healing instruments. You may experience some euphoria afterwards like a runner's high.
David Elliott style breathwork is a super powerful way to help out our sympathetic nervous system. The more a person works with the breath, the more their energy will open bringing life force into the body with increased energy flow. At a Baltimore Breathwork group session you will use the breath as a tool to support your 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 you to heal old stuff that you don't want to have be holding you back from feeling great reaching your goals. Others come because they feel a connection to spirit whatever that means to them individually.
The formula is a 3-step process of pranayama breathing that lasts for about 30 minutes while listening to an eclectic soundtrack which includes pop and rock tunes. 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 flat on a yoga mat covered, if desired, by a blanket. We may scream or laugh to raise the intensity mid-way through the experience. The second half of our group is comprised of both a sound bath and period of relaxation. The intention is that you leave the session lighter and empowered.
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.
