Breathwalk® and Become Intuitively Right! ~ Shakta Kaur Kezios, (Move) Fire Tent
Many spiritual traditions use walking as a meditation to calm the mind, connect to nature and for healing. Breathwalk® is a simple, natural and effective walking practice derived from Kundalini Yoga. More powerful than ‘just walking,’ Breathwalk incorporates the meditative mind with specific breath patterns synchronized with your steps. In this session you’ll use your breath, your voice and your footsteps to come from silence and intuit the Divine’s will for you. All levels welcome.
