All of human activities are basically either conscious or unconscious. Movements of our limbs (legs, arms, etc) are conscious; it only moves when we want it to move. While the activities of our heart beat, or the inner organs (like kidneys or stomach) are unconscious, most of the time the work of these organs happen automatically without us knowing it. However, our breath is unique. It can happen both conscious or unconscious.
Conscious breathing happen when we aware of our breath, remember to breath slow or when we practice pranayama, this activities also called as “controlled breathing”. While unconscious breathing happen when we don’t realize that we are breathing, mostly happen on our daily life especially when we are under stress or too busy with our daily obligations.
Without we realize, restricted breathing pattern happen when we tend to the breath unconsciously. This restricted breathing are mostly caused by the suppression of emotions and feelings. Therefore the goal of the practice is to allow the emotions and feelings arise to the surface and allowing it to be expressed and released.
In our Healing Breath Open Class we practice long-deep-connected breathing. The breath is flowing continuous and naturally. In the practice we don’t try to control the breath, but we still aware of the breath and that we must practice deep and connected breathing.
