BREATH OF LIFE – 3 DAY BREATH AND ENERGY WORKSHOP WITH LASSE HOLOPAINEN

October 25, 2019 - October 27, 2019

9am to 5pm

3 guided breath work sessions daily

Daily Yoga asana class

Lectures and guided walks

Our breath is inextricably linked to our human energy. Over three days you will gain an intimate understanding of how you breathe, and learn the fundamentals of how to become a better breather. Join Lasse as he leads you through a discovery of the most powerful force in your life, your breath. The aim is to awaken the breathing muscles and develop proper breathing habits through the practice of ancient yogic and qi gong techniques. This has the dual effect of expanding your lung capacity and while creating an elegant, graceful unconscious breath – leading to more energy, better sleep, and an overall sense of calm.

Evenings will be spent learning the healing modalities of the breath, all the while beginning to explore meditation. For those that are ready, the seminar culminates with a delve into the “infinite breath”, a powerful technique that can eventually lead to the yogic experience of Samadhi.

Lectures and exercises will be held either onsite or on guided walks. Daily yoga classes are optional, but attendance is encouraged as this acts as a powerful adjunct to the seminar by tying breath into movement.

Sign on now for an experience that will change how your life unfolds.

”I have practiced and taught yoga, pranayama (yogic breathing) and qi gong for the last thirteen years, although my experience with my breath began a few decades back as a scuba and free-diver. Over my life, I have been fascinated by all forms of energy, but only began to study human energy in earnest as injury and personal challenges made me realize that I was missing something. Over time, these practices have dramatically changed my life, and so far, have healed me.” – Lasse Holopainen.

Lasse completed his Yogaworks teacher training in 2010 and went on to co-found Urban Ashram Yoga in 2011. Prior to that he was worked in energy policy and established the Philippine Electricity Market following an international career.
