Capricorn Rising Breathwork offers group breathwork circles and one-on-one breathwork sessions designed to shift personal energy, heal known and unknown wounds, and foster community.
Chris Phipps (right) and Stephen Roehler (left) formed Capricorn Rising Breathwork to share the healing practice of breathwork, an active meditation technique that first entered our lives almost a decade ago. When it showed back up a couple years ago, we were both at the right place and time for it to take hold like few other spiritual practices had done before. Having a friendship that has spanned more than a decade, it’s been such a gift to watch each other grow, to get certified in teaching breathwork by our teachers, David Elliott and Erin Telford, and to now work together to guide others via this powerful healing modality.
What is Breathwork?
Breathwork is an active form of meditation that uses conscious breathing to move stuck emotional energy, raise your vibrational level and facilitate connection with your Spirit.
This is an amazing opportunity to take time for yourself and recharge your body with universal energy that is free and accessible to all of us. We invite you to come experience a deeper connection to yourself energetically and to open your heart to increased gratitude and self-love.
the breathwork experience:
We start by sitting in a circle and open with a short, grounding meditation. We introduce a topic and participants are given an opportunity to share their thoughts and set intentions.
Everyone then lies down on a mat or blanket for 25-30 minutes of active breathwork. The active breathing technique employs a simple, two-part breath, done while lying down with your eyes closed.
During the breathwork we will play an awesome playlist while we guide you, provide affirmations, and apply gentle, grounding touch. We also employ essential oils, sage, palo santo and sweetgrass – inputs from nature that facilitate a deeper experience.
We conclude with a rest period where you slow down your breathing to a natural rhythm and completely chill out and experience a profoundly relaxing meditation.
