MINKA Brooklyn, NY - Breathwork with Gwen

  • MINKA Brooklyn Brooklyn (map)

Join Gwen Dittmar for a Women's Breathwork Workshop. In this two-hour workshop (followed by an hour of Q&A) Gwen will share how we can use our breath to embody our fullest potential. Breathwork is an active, three-part breathing technique that allows individuals to make transformative decisions from the heart, and put them into action with clarity and purpose. While some meditation practices keep the participant in their head and observing their thoughts, Breathwork allows you bypass the thinking mind and dive into your body and heart for answers.

In this workshop Gwen will create a sacred space through ancient rituals from the Shamanic tradition, using Palo Santo and Sage as energy cleansers; how to use the directions (east, south, west and north), the elements (fire, air, water, earth), as well as the spirit animals associated with each direction and element, to create a sacred space. Gwen will provide an overview of Breathwork, and share her own journey with Breathwork. 

Each participant will set an intention for the breathing, then lie on the floor and actively breathe for 25-minutes while music is played, followed by a 10-minute meditation. Participants will return to the circle for group sharing, questions and answers, and guidance on how to move forward in their life from this embodied and elevated space. Gwen closes the circle with gratitude. Participants leave feeling connected, empowered, peaceful and calm; inspired from within to put their intention into action.

Breathwork benefits can include: relief from stress, depression, anxiety, release of fear, anger, blocks or tension. This technique allows the practitioner to open to a natural state of peace, calm, gratitude, clarity and connection, in order to experience more grace and flow.

As a coach, teacher and guide, Gwen cultivates space for her clients to wake up, remember who they are, trust their intuition and navigate change through practical and spiritual techniques. Gwen Dittmar lives in Los Angeles, CA and is a coach for executives and entrepreneurs. Her authentic, spiritual and human approach to coaching stems from transitioning out of a fifteen-year career in pharmaceutical research in corporate, startup and entrepreneurial ventures, and integrating her natural gifts as a clairvoyant and personal experiences of alternative healing, to support clients in having empowered lives. Gwen has Bachelor degrees in Psychology, focused in Nutrition and Women’s Studies, a Masters degree in Spiritual Psychology, is a Certified Soul-Centered Coach, as well as a certified Breathwork Healer and Reiki Master.
