February 17th Queensland Holotropic Breathwork Workshop

Wendy Bignell and Melissa L’Estrange are delighted to be offering 3 creative, small-group-based days of self-discovery using Holotropic Breathwork TM during 2017 & early 2018.

What is Holotropic Breathwork? The name Holotropic means moving towards wholeness. Holotropic Breathwork is a powerful approach to self-exploration and integration combining breathing, evocative music and release work to explore the deeper dimensions of the psyche.

The workshops are open to anyone interested in doing deep personal work, and no prior experience is necessary. They offer participants the opportunity to experience Holotropic Breathwork as a single event, or deepen their Breathwork journey on a regular, ongoing basis.

An introductory interview prior to participating in a Breathwork Session is a pre-requisite for newcomers. Upon receipt of the Registration Form, Medical Form and Confirmation of Payment an appointment time will be made with you for the interview which will be via Skype or phone.

Please Note: This workshop is not appropriate for pregnant women or for persons with cardiovascular problems, severe hypertension, severe mental illness, recent surgery or fractures, acute infectious illness or epilepsy. It is not compatible with the use of illegal drugs. Minimum age is 18 years.

Contact Melissa L’Estrange one month prior to the workshop if you are interested in attending. She will forward to you the Registration Form and Medical Forms to be completed and returned to her 2 weeks prior to the workshop.
