Breathwork: The Missing Link in Health and Well-Being


Marin McCue

In this experiential workshop, we will explore the basic tenets of a trauma-informed lens to set the stage for learning and practicing breath techniques that lead to effective self and co-regulation. With breath literacy, we access an internal energy renewal source and a tangible tool that supports us in staying with discomfort long enough to re-appraise what we had made that discomfort mean. This has powerful implications for our overall health and well-being, as conscious and deliberate breath practice not only retrains our entire bodily system to be more flexible, adaptive and adept at recovery, but it also serves a larger goal of supporting the repair of relational ruptures for a more connected and collaborative community.

We will explore:

  • What an optimal and functional breath looks like, feels like, and the benefits

  • The interconnection of breath and our nervous system states, and what that means when it comes to supporting better health

  • A theoretical framework to consider as we use our breath literacy to learn how to access the pause before we react

What to bring:

  • Yoga mat (if you would like the option to lay on the floor)

  • Blanket or cushions for comfort on the floor (remaining seated on a chair is welcome)
