The Breathwalk form of meditative walk was developed from Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. Walking affects fitness, circulation, hormonal balance, heart rate, lung capacity and emotional balance positively. The combination of different breathing techniques , walking and conscious attention brings clarity and calm. When our mind, our emotions and energy co-operate in a smooth flow, we gain more vitality and overall wellness. Breathwalk is easy to learn and simple to use anywhere.
1, Yoga movements to assist better breathing and assist a healthy posture
2, Walking in intervalls with different breathing patterns
INCREASED ENERGY LEVELS & PHYSICAL WELL BEING - Large reserves of energy available in our muscles and in our glands are ready to be opened and used with the help of our breathing. The nervous system can both hold and release energy when trained like a muscle.
EMOTIONAL CONTROL - Our mood affects memory, what thoughts we tune in to and how we use our energy levels. Breathing Patterns can shift the mood from, anxious to calm, from depressed to hopeful, from confident to concerned. These shifts occur because of the interaction of exercise and the body's complex neurochemistry. The combination of breathing, posture and rhythm changes your mood.
MENTAL QUALITY - We influence our mental clarity by practicing doing things that give energy to the nervous system. A single postitive thought can release a cascade of healing effects throughout our being. Breathwalk gives you a way to immediately and directly affect your mind / mind and the flow of thoughts.
SPIRIT & CONNECTEDNESS - As with all practices of yoga, meditation or spiritual work, breathwalk gives us a greater sense of connection with self. Breathing, meditation and being in nature aligns us with our centre. It connects us to our sprit, with the deepest part of ourself.
The Human way of walking has developed during millions of years and in a way that has connections to all of the bodily systems such as the heart and circulation, digestion and even perceptual organs such as the eyes. To walk gives all these system a healthy tuneup. The heart gets stronger, the circulation in the body increases, the effectiveness of the digestion system becomes better and your overall perception becomes clearer. Just walking decreases the risk of cancer, heart disease and depression.

The course consists of 2 modules. Module1 is primarily experience-based. We go through the basics and techniques of the breathwalk. We learn how we can use the different programs for stress reduction, to get energy and to influence the mood positively through many wonderful walks together.
Module 2 is a build-up for instructors where we continue with a thorough review of the breathwalk's techniques and explore the programs on a deeper level. Between the course modules you have home assignments where you walk all the programs and analyse them as well as reading the material included in the course. We will also learn more about Breathwalk's healing effects and take part in the experiences of Gurucharan Singh Khalsa with teams of Breathwalk's more therapeutic benefits.
