The Silent Disruptor

Breathing creates the rhythm of life, the subtle hum behind every moment, connecting us to our essential being.

My name is Damian Chaparro, Aro Ha co-founder and devoted breathwork facilitator, deeply immersed in the transformational world of conscious breathing. I wish to share my insights into the profound benefits of Ecstatic Breathwork and invite you on a revitalising journey of the breath with a breathwork practice with me. If you’d like to skip straight to the practice, enjoy it below:

Dysfunctional breathing plays a substantial, common, and yet often overlooked role in our physical and mental well-being.  This silent disruptor manifests as irregular, shallow, or rapid breaths and may lead to a host of health complications, impacting your quality of life.

Dysfunctional breathing can elicit a stress response, releasing a surge of stress hormones like cortisol, propelling our bodies into a state of hyper-alertness and anxiety. This erratic breathing pattern can escalate existing health conditions such as asthma, respiratory issues, and heart ailments. Moreover, it muddles our cognitive functions, contributing to fatigue, decreased concentration, and a general sense of unease.

The Physiology

Understanding the physiology behind dysfunctional breathing is crucial. When we breathe shallowly, we fail to engage our diaphragm fully, causing a reduction in lung expansion and, consequently, lower oxygen intake. This lack of oxygen triggers a survival response, altering our bodily functions and mind, and leading to prolonged stress and tension.

The Solution

Addressing dysfunctional breathing is paramount, and the path to correction is laden with awareness and conscious effort. Initiatives like breathwork and specifically, techniques such as Ecstatic Breathwork, hold the promise of re-educating our respiratory system. They teach us to breathe deeply, rhythmically, and mindfully, optimizing our oxygen intake and invoking a state of relaxation and balance.

Ecstatic Breathwork, or Tummo Breath, is a particularly transformative technique within the realm of breathwork. This method is renowned for inducing states of bliss and ecstasy, promoting a profound connection with the self and the universe.

Here are the specific benefits of Ecstatic Breathwork:

  • Elevated Consciousness: It opens up channels to higher states of consciousness, allowing for profound insights and realisations.
  • Enhanced Vital Energy: It boosts the life energy within, creating a vibrant sense of vitality and aliveness.
  • Deep Relaxation: It fosters a deep sense of relaxation and calmness, grounding the mind and soothing the soul.

Breathwork is more than a practice; it is a pathway and tool to rediscover our essence, heal our bodies, and awaken to the boundless possibilities of our being. Ecstatic Breathwork is an extraordinary method to experience elevated states of consciousness and profound relaxation. I hope you join me, in exploring this sacred practice and embracing the harmony and euphoria that come with each breath.

In health,
