Sara Mader is a Breathwork and Meditation Facilitator. She will guide you through 18-23 minutes of an active two part rhythmic breathwork pattern, developed in part from Pranayama- Ancient Yogic Breath. Breathwork is an active meditation technique that facilitates an emotional release. Then she will guide you through a grounding meditation to integrate the practice and allow you to rest. This is a 60 minute workshop.

On a physical level this breath creates a chemical shift (ph balance) in the body by increasing oxygen saturation and decreasing carbon dioxide - this helps to alkalize the blood. This session will light up and ignite the subconscious part of your mind, getting you out of your head and allowing you to drop down into your body.
