SOMA Breathwork is a natural way to boost your mood, energy, creativity, and health! If you are looking for a meditation experience with more energy and active, intentional breathing, this is it! Whether you have never meditated before or have been meditating for years, join us – ALL are welcome and encouraged! SOMA breathwork combines the practice of elevating emotions with rhythmic breathing techniques (pranayama) and entrainment music to raise vibrational energy and improve heart coherence. When done as a group, the positive effects are even more amplified. Read on to find out more about the healing advantages of SOMA breathwork meditation.


All levels of experience are encouraged to come! Please BYOM (bring your own mat), and towel or blanket for your comfort. It’s meditator’s choice to sit or lay down. It is best to do the breathwork on an empty stomach, two hours after eating, and wear comfortable clothing.


SOMA is a complete holistic system of breathwork techniques. SOMA is based on the core pranayama yoga techniques that have the most scientific evidence to support their function. It is inspired by the most revered Pranayama Kumbhaka technique and the Rig Veda, that is the basis of modern day Hinduism and the Vedic philosophy that yoga originates from. It is also inspired by the breathwork technique that is the core of the Wim Hof Method, created by Wim Hof; the work of Dr Prakash Malshe, an Indian doctor based near Rishikesh, the birthplace of yoga, who uses pranayama and yoga to treat his patients; and Swami Ambikananda Saraswati, who has one of the most popular yoga schools in the UK that is based on the earliest recorded traditional yoga practices.



All of the techniques that are a part of SOMA Breathwork can be used to help with a variety of chronic health issues that are triggered by chronic emotional stress, autoimmune disease, metabolic diseases, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and more. Learning and practicing the five core breathwork techniques of SOMA can be beneficial in the following areas:

  • Weight
  • Energy
  • Creativity
  • Immunity
  • Sleep
  • Digestion
  • Longevity
  • Mood
  • Anxiety/Stress
  • Inflammation
  • Asthma/Congestion/Sinus


All techniques are designed to be a complementary addition to existing treatment and not a replacement for them. While SOMA Breathwork is considered safe, it is always best to seek medical advice before doing any alternative holistic practice.

Because some of the breathwork includes elements of intermittent hypoxic training (IHT), people with the following conditions should not participate:

– High blood pressure, epilepsy, heart conditions

– Pregnant women

– Acute somatic and viral diseases

– Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD-II and COPD-III)

– Chronic diseases with symptoms of decompensation or terminal illness

– Individual intolerance of oxygen insufficiency

– Cancer, unless IHT is prescribed by a doctor

– People with pacemakers or heart arrhythmias (unless treatment is under direct medical supervision
