Ep.019 - From Resistance to Euphoria: My First Breathwork Class Raw & Radiant

    • Self-Improvement

As the host of the Raw & Radiant podcast, I shared a transformative journey in the latest episode.

I recounted my first experience with breathwork, which took place four years ago in San Diego. Living in Coronado, I felt a deep pull to explore new modalities and connect with a community beyond the island. I discovered a yoga studio in downtown San Diego called Sojourn, where I attended a breathwork class on a Sunday evening.

Initially hesitant and resistant, I pushed past my ego's doubts and entered the studio. Surrounded by 40 other participants, I found a sense of calm and connection with a fellow attendee, setting the stage for a powerful experience.

Led by The Healing Couple, Corey and Jess, the breathwork session involved a three-part conscious connected breathing pattern that aimed to release anxiety and overwhelm and rewrite limiting neuropathways in the brain. The session was accompanied by a carefully curated playlist, including Imagine Dragons and affirmations that resonated deeply.

During the peak of the breathwork practice, I felt a euphoric sensation, akin to levitating off the ground, as the music and guidance facilitated a profound inner journey. The session concluded with a guided visualization and the opportunity for physical reassurance through hugs from the facilitators.

The impact of this initial breathwork experience was so profound that I continued to attend classes at Sojourn until the pandemic forced a shift to virtual sessions. Embracing the transition, I engaged in one-on-one sessions with Jess and Corey, eventually enrolling in their breathwork teacher training immersion.

Reflecting on the transformative power of breathwork in my life, I emphasized its ability to help individuals move through emotional trauma, Narcissistic Abuse, and emotional blockages. Encouraging listeners to explore breathwork as a potent tool for healing and self-discovery, I invited them to connect with me for further guidance and support.

Closing our time together, I expressed gratitude for the energetic space created by the podcast and encouraged listeners to share and engage with the content. With a message of empowerment and authenticity, I invited them to continue embodying the essence of living raw and radiant in their daily lives.
