Contraindications

Before enrolling in a workshop, one-on-one session, or performing independent breathwork at home with video guidance, it is crucial that you carefully review the list of contraindications. Contraindications are specific conditions or conditions where a particular treatment or technique, in this case connected breathwork, may not be safe or appropriate. These can range from certain medical conditions to psychological factors.

Some examples of contraindications may include, but are not limited to: certain heart and lung conditions, recent surgery, serious mental illness, or pregnancy. It is important to emphasize that this list is not exhaustive and it is advisable to always seek professional medical advice if in doubt.

If you have one or more of the listed contraindications, we strongly recommend that you consult with your doctor, psychologist or therapist prior to participation. They can assess whether this breathing technique is feasible and safe for your specific situation.

In addition, it is mandatory to report any contraindications when registering during a live session. This information is essential for us to ensure a safe and supportive environment for all participants. Your health and well-being are our top priority, and adhering to these guidelines helps us provide a responsible and effective experience.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this important matter and look forward to providing you with a deep and beneficial experience with connected breathwork.

When participating in a connected breathwork session, it is very important that each participant is aware of his or her own ability to bear the intensity and emotional depth of the process. We encourage everyone to assess for themselves whether they are ready for this experience and whether they are comfortable with the possible emotional effects that may arise.

It is essential that participants surround themselves with the right professional support, both before and after the sessions. This may mean working with therapists, counselors or other qualified professionals who have experience in the aftercare of such profound emotional processes. Their expert guidance can be essential in ensuring that any emotional reactions or discoveries arising from a session are processed in a healthy and constructive way.

Our goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment, but we also emphasize the importance of personal responsibility and self-care in this process. By consciously choosing the right support and guidance, one can get the maximum benefit from connected breathwork, while also caring for his or her own emotional and psychological well-being.

If you feel uncomfortable or unsafe in any way during a breathing session, it is essential to immediately stop the exercise and return to your normal breathing. Fortunately, you are in control of this process at all times. Once you return to your 'normal' breathing, your body will naturally return to its 'normal' state. Safety and comfort always come first with breathwork.
