Transformational Breathing is a technique developed by Dr Judith Kravitz in the USA, that teaches a form of connected breathing using the whole of the respiratory system.
Studies show that as many as 90% of people have restricted breathing patterns and that this can be linked among other things to physical health problems, emotional difficulties, and lack of energy or motivation. A trained Transformational Breath Facilitator can help you to identify your own particular breath pattern and to gently open up blocked areas, oxygenating every cell in your body.
Your Transformational Breath Facilitator will show you how to use the whole of your respiratory system and breathe more fully. She may place hands on areas where your breathing is blocked and apply gentle pressure. Affirmations are also used to help to release these blocks, and a sound technique called toning to help to move the energy.
Once the breathing pattern gets established it usually becomes effortless and you may experience sensations of tingling in your body, or feelings of warmth or cold as the energy begins to flow.
Each session is a unique self-healing journey and no two sessions are ever the same. It is usual however for people to report awareness of a new openness in their breathing: feeling relaxed, energised and having a greater sense of peace.
Because Transformational Breathing teaches people how to take control of their own breath, most people have only a few sessions (usually between 4 and 10) with a facilitator before feeling ready to continue on their own.
Transformational Breathing can be a life-long journey of discovery, and a short daily practice plus a commitment to ongoing weekly self-guided sessions is recommended.
