Welcome to experience the depths of breathwork! Holotropic Breathwork is a powerful and empowering method of self-exploration, which allows emergence of spontaneous healing process guided by your inner healing wisdom with the aid of breath, music, bodywork and safe space.

The workshop is held at the beautiful Yogatime-studio in Vuosaari, Helsinki (Aurinkotuulenkatu 4, Aurinkolahti). We will have two breathwork journeys on Saturday, where each participant will breathe in one and be a sitter in other. We will provide a good framework and tools for integrating experiences and deepen the integration process on Sunday.
