Breathwork for Resilience

Corporate Program


How can I help your company?

Times are changing! It’s becoming obvious that a company can  rarely  have sustainable growth without promoting sustainable well being among their employees. Because a company is a living system that will evolve, depending on how each element or part of it evolves.  Sick days, burnout cases and dissatisfied employees cost a massive amount of money to the company system, and they are a waste of time and precious energy when the company is trying  to reach their goals. 

So we agree: Sustainable well being first. To have  a productive sustainable company with happy and mentally, emotionally and physically healthy employees. 

I have been using breathing as a main tool to boost resilience and increase wellbeing and high performance for more than 10 years now, with outstanding results. 

 I use breathing in three levels: 

  • As a tool to regulate the physical body. To keep stress levels on track and keep the body in homeostasis (recovery mode) for long periods of the day, and for a restful night. 
  • For emotional regulation. Employees are in constant growth, and the company in constant changes (specially in post covid time)  and these transitions can produce anxiety, fear, grief, anger, sadness, and if they are not addressed in time they can cause problems in the team dynamic. 
  • For mind balance and increase levels of consciousness. When our mind is in survival we see enemies, when it’s in creative mode we see co-creators. Having employees go from victim to creator and gain a leadership mindset can make the whole difference for a company. In their financial results and in the quality of life of their employees. 

Breathing is the primal pillar of our biology, and if we can improve that pillar, everything that depends on it improves.

      FOR YOUR COMPANY

“I was constantly feeling anxious, specially before speaking in team meetings. I couldn't sleep the night before a meeting or before a conference. I could pull off the meeting and pretend to be confident of course, but I really didn't enjoy it. More like a nightmare situation. These breathing sequences and mindset work have helped me to calm down and prepare for any speaking situation. It's incredible what you can do by controlling your breath and changing your thoughts.”

—R.T, Team Manager

Why is our breathing program a game changer and proven strategy to effectively reduce stress and increase resilience?

The way you breathe impacts your body, mind, emotions, and levels of energy. It directly influences your health, especially in times of covid19. It determines how calm and clear your mind is, how long you might live and how emotionally happy and fulfilled you can feel. All science proven. And not only that, breathing also helps to regulate your blood pressure, hormonal changes, sleeping patterns, digestive process, and it influences how well you communicate with others and how lonely or appreciated you perceive yourself to be.

Breathing can avoid a nasty burnout or cause one. It can determine how fast you rebound during a crisis increasing your resilience and it prepares the brain to perceive new possibilities, make less mistakes when making decisions and have the energy and focus to act with determination on those decisions.

"I feel so much more relaxed since I did these sessions with Rakel. Her techniques are so simple and easy to implement. I usually do them in the morning, and also in the car after parking when getting home, and it helps with the transition from office mode, to mother mode. I am such a workaholic...but this classes have really helped."
