Breathwork Mastery (RBM)
Key defining points
Breathwork Mastery RBM specific skills and knowledge
Pranayama and Breathwork differences ?
Yogic Pranayama, now sometimes called Breathwork is to purposefully calm the mind through conscious breathing.
Withdrawing the senses towards meditation which is focused focus on one thing.
Facilitated by a trained yoga teacher
Breathwork Mastery RBM session is an inner process where the eyes close and open again after approximately 90 minutes. The focus is on awareness of body sensations movement for self generated discharges of constrictions in the system
Facilitated by a Certified Breathwork Mastery RBM Professional who has completed more than 540 hours Training
is a time spent conscious breathing and requires no certification
Two styles of Breathwork – both are conscious breathing.
Sympathetic activation through stronger and faster than normal conscious breathing winds up the system and brings cramping, spasms and emotional type releases – yet maybe not resolution.
Beyond our comfort zone
Parasympathetic activation applied in Breathwork Mastery ( RBM ) is longer than normal conscious breathing which unwinds constrictions as body sensations changes.
The approach can be said to go into your comfort zone
Breathwork Mastery RBM is s a path of self generated authentic
Mastery – meaning authentic and embodied ease.
The total time frame of a RBM breath session is approx two and a half hours with more time needed for set up and follow up.
Breath cycle key points
RBM specific breath techniques of 7 steps
1. Conscious breath
2. Full breath, using the navel and below, the chest and the upper chest and above – from breathing longer than normal and slower
3. Connected breath, no pauses – from being longer than normal and slower
4. Relaxed or subtle breath – longer than normal and slower
5. Inhale and exhale from the nose until or unless it blocks
6. Breath remains linked to body sensation awareness and attention to variations in breath, body and consciousness
7. Awareness on if it is hard or easy to breathe
RBM specific Approach –
Nine defining points of Rebirthing/Breathwork Mastery (RBM) as a strand of Breathwork
1. Emphasis on body sensation awareness as well as conscious breath all through the breath session – it is a body/breath process.
2. Emphasis on self-mastery – individuals are self-generating their personal development process and are self-regulating organisms – RBM is a creative tool.
3. Awareness on process – when an individual is safe enough, supported enough, and ready enough, he or she will discharge unresolved past events – allow time and awareness in the process.
4. Application of well-chosen intention setting within the process – relate all the content of the breath cycle of the session to the intention in an integrative debrief.
5. Use of breath that allows a physical, mental, feeling or spiritual, transformational experience – start with conscious, longer than normal breathing, so it is connected and full, in and out the nose until or unless the nose closes. Stay with the feeling it is hard to breathe or easy.
6. Allow the breath session to unfold with minimum intervention – use the debrief afterwards to integrate all the wisdom, inspiration or clearing that emerges during the breath cycle
7. Be present to, name and identify exactly what is happening on each level of the breath session, without adding any interpretation – gently amplify whatever emerges to create the environment for discharge of constrictions on all levels.
8. Awareness of safety – a breather can only regress to something that he or she has already lived through – any past event which is surfacing from conscious breath is because of intention – the inner experience is invited to surface and any intense symptoms are immediately affected by a change in intention.
9. Agenda free focus for facilitation with an emphasis on expanding self-awareness, and self mastery for the participant and the facilitator .
Certified RBM Practitioner defining code
* Absolutely minimum intervention
* Agenda free
* Holding high positive regard for “client generated” body-breath process after intention setting
* High listening-oriented facilitating with relevant questioning only from client signals
* Main role is professional support for highly motivating client intentions at the beginning of the session – with feedback from professional knowledge – only at the very end – if appropriate.
RBM Intentions setting techniques
Intentions are the state of being you intend to have from your personal goals. It’s what you have in your heart and mind.
Goal is specific and measurable.”
For big picture life enduring intentions ?
– like ? “be true to myself”
“Step by integrated step”
I loved the Breathwork Practitioner Training. It was one of the best trainings/courses i’ve ever done. I studied psychology at Uni and found in incredibly unpractical. In contrast the Breathwork training was wonderfully and hugely experiential – training in a way of being and accepting, for oneself and to support others, to learn to trust that you can stay with and breathe through whatever comes up is incredibly powerful. Initially i didn’t intend to be a practitioner, I was more in it for my personal journey and clearing. But by the end i was like, how can i not facilitate this for others as it is so incredibly beneficial.
I highly recommend Alakh’s Rebitrthing Breathwork training. I started with group sessions for my wellbeing and I was so blown away by the changes in my life and by the knowledge of Alakh that I signed up for the professional training. What an amazing and pleasurable journey it has been!There is a very distinctive” before” and “after” the training in my life. It has given me tools to welcome what is happening in my life and to aim at living a conscious life creating win/win situations for myself and others. Alakh’s professionalism is outstanding and her dedication to Breathwork is amazing.
God bless you and I truly hope that you receive all that your heart desire’s as I feel you have helped me to see the light of my own eternal heart… Truly Alakh my soul thanks you for an eternity
I totally acknowledge the significant contribution that the Rebirthing Breathwork Mastery training that i did with you last year has had on this manifesting so powerfully now. I’ve done so much clearing and have got so aligned with my purpose and intentions! I’ve been able to discern the inputs and experiences that will best support me in an ongoing way since completion of the training too. Thanks to you for providing the dynamic training and for making it possible for me to attend it inter-state … it was a great investment! with love Miriam
Its been on the back of my mind for a while so I wanted to acknowledge you for the work and attention to making the rebirthing course such a unique experience. The experience I had at the workshop at your home in Byron really is on the my favourite memories of recent years and without a doubt one of the best formats of all the workshops I have done, The format you developed I think is a benchmark for running an enjoyable, productive and powerful workshop experience….. You’ve put a lot of effort into creating some cool experiences, so thank you.
When I started having breathwork sessions in 2004 huge changes started to happen in my life and in my inner world. The changes were happening in a very fast and unstoppable pace.The main and dominant inner process was a stream of memories from the past. Some of the memories were buried so deep, that I didn’t even know that they existed. Thanks to the simple, but very effective way of working with the breath I saw results every time. Each time another layer of memories would get revealed. I didn’t search for them, but when they came they were followed by realizations that were changing me and then came inner peace.And the most important is that I learned to work and deal with what the process of transformation carries with it. This will stay with me forever and is constantly developing. I could always use it for myself and to help others.
