Virtual Breathwork Class w/ Jackie Bilancia

A breathwork class is approximately 45-55 minutes long, separated into three parts. This will be done over zoom 🙂

The first part includes a short five-ten minute introduction explaining how to do the active breathing technique. Jackie will demonstrate how to do the Belly, Chest, Exhale breathing and ask you to complete it before we get started. During this time, we will also set an intention for the class.

The second part consists of the active breathing portion. This lasts about 23-28 minutes. It is accompanied by positive, upbeat music played at a loud volume. I will be talking a little bit during the music and we will test to make sure you can hear the music and my voice at the same time. During this time, we will also do a primal scream. This will help us release any stagnant energy and release!

In the third part, the active breathing technique stops and our breathing returns to normal. Softer music is played and this time is used to process the healing that just occurred.

These are some of the contraindications for breathwork. If you have any of the following, please reach out to your primary doctor before our session.

pregnancy
Cardiovascular disease
Angina
Heart attack
High blood pressure
Glaucoma
Retinal detachment
Osteoporosis
Recent injury or surgery
Any conditions for which you take regular medications
History of panic attacks, psychosis
Severe mental illnesses
Seizure disorders
Family history of aneurism
Coronavirus or flu-like symptoms

Jackie Bilancia is an occupational therapist, entrepreneur and breathwork facilitator. Jackie will be there during your session to guide you but what’s amazing about breathwork is that your body and breath does all the healing. Breathwork can assist with decreasing stress, anxiety, depression and increase your ability to tune into your higher self and gain clarity. The breathwork session will consist of 30-40 minutes of active breathing and approximately 10 minutes of resting breathing, all paired with a playlist designed for your group. Jackie will introduce and demonstrate the three part breathing technique used and she will be there with you every step of the way.
