A deeper understanding of how trauma works within your body can be incredibly empowering. Learning breath and movement techniques to support your body’s natural process to release chronic tension, self-restricting patterns, and emotional trauma clears the way for feelings of joy, self-love, and deep relaxation. In this transformative workshop, somatic therapist and educator Prema McKeever provides an exploration of the BioDynamic Breathwork & Trauma Release System® 6-Element approach to empower your body’s natural process for healing.  

Utilizing the six elements of BioDynamic Breathwork—breath, movement, sound, touch, emotions, and meditation—Prema supports participants in opening their breath and body and to gently move through layers of body tension, discovering where and how past trauma and emotional stress are stored in the physical body. Participants explore effective breathwork techniques to create positive brain changes and emotional regulation. You can calm your mind or energize your body, depending on what is needed. Come away with brief, daily practices for ongoing healing in your body, mind, and spirit.  

In addition to breathwork practices and sessions, Prema shares valuable information on the anatomy of breathwork, the physiology of trauma, and the crucial role of embodiment and somatic practices in releasing trauma without feelings of overwhelm and drain. Releasing core tension unbinds incredible amounts of energy, which can fuel creativity, improve meditation, and help us live more fully.    

This two-day live online workshop is suitable for anyone with a passion for breathwork or those who are simply curious about the power of the breath-body connection and embodied approaches to healing from trauma and easing stress.
