Benefits of Somatic Breathwork

Stress Reduction & Mental Clarity

One Breath Institute's approach to breathwork training is renowned for its dual benefits of stress reduction and enhancing mental clarity. This holistic practice, merging controlled breathing with body awareness, not only alleviates stress but also clears the mind. It's particularly effective for resolving trauma and promoting a calm, focused mental state; these can be essential in both personal and professional realms.

Emotional Release & Healing

Emphasized at One Breath Institute, somatic breathwork is a key tool for emotional release and healing. By facilitating access to deep-seated emotions, often linked to trauma, it allows for a safe and gentle release process. This technique is integral to emotional healing, enabling practitioners to confront and release emotional blockages, paving the way for emotional resilience and well-being.

Self-exploration & Personal Growth

Somatic breathwork, as taught by One Breath Institute, serves as a gateway to self-exploration and personal growth. This introspective practice encourages practitioners to delve deep into their inner selves, fostering heightened self-awareness. It is especially beneficial in trauma-informed environments, aiding individuals in understanding and transforming their personal narratives and life experiences.

Is Somatic Breathwork Effective?

Somatic breathwork, as practiced and taught at One Breath Institute, is not just effective; it's transformative, especially in treating mental health issues like trauma, anxiety, and more. Supported by research, somatic breathwork has shown significant benefits in improving stress and mental health. This technique enhances autonomic, cerebral, and psychological flexibility, fostering emotional control and psychological well-being, as evidenced in scientific studies​​.

Breathwork's effectiveness extends to clinically diagnosed anxiety disorders, which are among the most prevalent psychiatric conditions globally​​. Its simple, fast-acting, and cost-effective nature makes it an invaluable tool in addressing physical and mental health challenges, as highlighted during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Embracing somatic breathwork leads to a transformative journey, offering profound relief from mental health challenges. Its power lies in its ability to unlock emotional release and healing, enhancing mental clarity, and fostering personal growth. At One Breath Institute, the focus on trauma-informed training ensures that practitioners are well-equipped to guide others through their healing processes, using breathwork not just as a practice but as a pathway to holistic well-being.

I had the pleasure of finding my way to the One Breath Institute after getting to do introspective Breathwork sessions with Lisa. I have been trained in Breathwork as a therapist, and I’ve done many personal Breathwork sessions and co-facilitated several powerful Breathwork groups; Lisa’s style, and the approach taken by the rest of the OBI founders and team, is among the most powerful healing experiences I have had. I jumped at the chance to go through the training which is focused not only on how to be a breathworker, but how to be an authentic and attuned healer.

When I reflect on how One Breath Institute has changed my life, it's hard to even remember who I was in the beginning. I felt ‘called’ to breathwork and I had never even experienced it! Introspective Breathwork™ has changed who I am as a person (for the better) and my training at OBI with Lisa & Debbie has enabled me to have a profession that doesn’t feel like work. I wake up feeling grateful that I GET to do this! If you’re feeling the call or the nudge to become a Breathwork Facilitator, do it!
