Safety in Online Breathwork Panel Discussion

The intention of this panel is to discuss safety in online breathing. Historically, breathworkers have been reluctant to do sessions online as it was seemingly impossible to lead remotely.  However, during pandemic lockdown, many people have been doing sessions online with amazing success. Online sessions also bring up different challenges. As leaders in breathwork, it is essential that we are responsible in the ways we share breathwork online in situations where we can not directly be with the people we are breathing.
