Breathwork, Women, and the Nervous System: Increasing Capacity in Challenging Times
With Kimberly Ann Johnson, you'll deepen your felt-sense understanding of your nervous system through breathwork. Women heal differently than men do from trauma. A one-size-fits-all approach to healing trauma doesn't work. Most women need to embrace a healthy “fight” response to repair earlier incomplete “flight-or-freeze” responses. When you can identify the state you're in, you're empowered to choose the breathwork methodology that's best for your healing.
In this session, you'll discover:
- Knowing the right amount of titration for your own system is key in breathwork
- Most women need to expand their capacity for upregulation so that true downregulation is possible
- Completion of cycles is critical in healing trauma
