An Institute of Coaching Roundtable Event
Together at Home
Thanks to our sponsor:
"Thank you for this gift of shared care, and for holding together a sacred space for our community."



For the month of October, Together at Home will be taking a break from our normal routine of meditation and self inquiry around a topic and we’ll be exploring a new form of self experience, Pranayama Yoga or Breathwork.

What Is Breathwork?
Breathwork is an active meditation using a two-part inhale of breath through the mouth, sometimes called pranayama yoga, that will shift your body into the space of the sympathetic nervous system. This can help you deepen your self-knowledge, release stuck emotions, and allow you to gain clarity. 
Why the Change?
At the heart of Together at Home is self exploration within the safety of a group for the purpose of personal growth.  We are exploring different modalities of self exploration and Breathwork can be a quite expansive means of experiencing the self.

How Will This Go?

At the beginning of our TAH session, we’ll:

  • Set individual intentions for our self exploration
  • Lie flat on a yoga mat or bed or the floor
  • Perform the pranayama breath with music and a bit of guidance for about 20 minutes
  • Come back together as a group to discuss our experience

Once you register, we’ll send more information on how you can prepare so that you can get the most out of the experience.

Note: You won’t be allowed to join late and you’ll want to take care not to leave early.  So please only register if you can allocate the full hour.

"Thank you for a beautiful hour of connection, holding, and opening. It was my first experience of 'Together at Home,' and the format - from open to close - made it easy to let go and breathe more deeply, even if only for the hour. The meditation was beautiful."
