At a Baltimore Breathwork group class Elizabeth likes to start class making sure you feel grounded and safe. You then lie on a yoga mat and can cover yourself with an optional blanket and hold optional smooth stones. Sometimes people bring an eye pillow. The breathwork portion of class is carefully curated to rock-n-roll or other music. In a signature class there is an opportunity to make a scream or a big noise. Affirmations and laughter are sometimes sprinkled throughout a class. Towards the end of the breathwork portion the music often becomes geared towards a deeper experience often culminating in a sound bath. The breathwork portion is around 25-35 minutes. Each class is a unique experience and no two are the same.
Baltimore Breathwork is a hybrid of breathwork and sound healing. Breathwork is a powerful, active meditation technique for self-healing where participants bypass the thinking mind and process on a subconscious level. Sound healing uses crystal sound bowls, gongs, tuning forks, and chimes to realign the mind, body, and soul. Combining breathwork with beautiful vibrational sounds brings balance and harmony to the body and is a powerful way to cultivate a sense of well-being. Following this transformative healing experience participants report significantly less tension, anger, fatigue, and depressed mood. Most participants leave a session feeling lighter, and more connected to their authentic self.
Elizabeth Bardelli holds a Master of Science Degree from the Johns Hopkins University and a post-graduate degree from The College of Notre Dame of Maryland in the field of education. Already a gifted, creative, and compassionate educator Elizabeth chose to leave the classroom and study under David Elliott, renowned Los Angeles breathwork healer. After studying and becoming certified to teach David's breathwork, she then founded Baltimore Breathwork in 2018 developing her own craft. She still spends time each summer in Los Angeles attending events given by her sound hero, Guy Douglas, and trainings hosted by her peers in the breathwork circuit. Elizabeth is particularly interested in using breathwork to help those healing from alcoholism, depression, stress, and folks just wanting to feel most like themselves again. She also employs techniques from laughter yoga, guided meditation and imagery, and a generous use of positive affirmations in her classes. Each class is a unique experience, and no two are the same.
BALTIMORE BREATHWORK REVIEWS
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.
