Aletheia Breathworkshop: Dare To Breathe, Love to Breathe, Breathe in Love!

Saturday April 2nd • 7-9:30pm • $45+GST

Register here!

Aletheia breathwork is a form of conscious connected healing that helps to work on the deep layers of self. Through the use of a specific breathing technique, old patterns can be transformed and reintegrated in a sacred space. When we are born, we have the innate ability to breathe with ease, yet as we go through life’s journey we begin to control our breathing. With this adaptive restriction, we actually begin to affect our consciousness and our body’s vitality. Through Aletheia Breathwork, the connection to breath is deeply re-established, and love, light and freshness is brought back into being. The workshop goes for 3 hours with one hour spent breathing, with the rest in guided meditation, discussion, and a sharing circle.

Make Breathe your best friend, and re kindle your love for breathing!

Visit www.breathewithlex.com for more information on Aletheia Breathwork and the facilitator.

Self-Care Acupressure Workshop coming up on Saturday!


Self-Care Acupressure for the Release of Stress, Fatigue & Depression

with Sharon Purdy

Saturday, February 27th ~ 12-3pm ~ $60+GST

Sign up at Coastal Bliss Yoga, Pharmasave Tofino or Online Here

The ancient Chinese therapy of acupressure is a natural, hands on healing method that can effectively relieve pain and discomfort, increase circulation, release muscular tension and nurture the spirit. In this workshop you will learn to locate and work some acupressure points that will help relieve stress, fatigue and depression specifically. Activating these points will help create balance and promote the body’s innate capacity to heal itself. A calming breathing technique will be presented and you will experience a simple guided meditation. Please bring a blanket.

**Please note: This workshop is not recommended for anyone who is pregnant as some acupressure points must be avoided during pregnancy.
