How do I prepare for a SOMA Breath workshop?

3 min. readlast update: 11.08.2023

  1. Dress Comfortably: Choosing the right attire is essential for a successful SOMA Breath workshop. Opt for loose-fitting, comfortable clothing that allows free movement. Breathwork often involves stretching and deep breathing, so you'll want to wear something that won't restrict your mobility.
  2. Stay Hydrated: Proper hydration is vital for effective breathwork. Drink enough water in the hours leading up to the workshop to ensure you're adequately hydrated. This will help you maintain energy levels and optimize your breathing techniques. However, don't overhydrate immediately before the workshop to avoid frequent bathroom breaks.
  3. Meal Timing: Most breathwork techniques are best practiced on an empty stomach. Plan your meals around the workshop schedule. You can do breathwork first thing in the morning before breakfast, or if the workshop is later in the day, make sure you've had your last meal at least two hours before the workshop begins. A heavy or full stomach may hinder your ability to engage in deep, diaphragmatic breathing.
  4. Necessary Workshop Materials: Check if there are any specific materials or tools you need for the workshop. Some workshops may recommend having a yoga mat, a blanket, or a notebook and pen for taking notes. Ensure you have these materials ready in advance.
  5. Workshop Schedule: Familiarize yourself with the workshop schedule. Know the start and end times, as well as any breaks. Being aware of the duration of the workshop will help you manage your time and stay engaged throughout.
  6. Set Clear Intentions: Take a moment to set clear intentions for the workshop. Consider what you hope to achieve or experience. Intentions provide focus and purpose, enhancing your overall workshop experience.
  7. Create a Suitable Environment: Whether you're attending the workshop online or in person, create a comfortable and quiet space for your practice. Eliminate potential distractions and ensure you won't be interrupted during the workshop.
  8. Mental Preparation: Prepare yourself mentally by letting go of any distractions or concerns. Be fully present during the workshop, and open your mind to the teachings and practices.
  9. Technical Preparedness (for Online Workshops): If the workshop is held online, make sure your technical equipment is in order. Check your internet connection, the functionality of your computer or device, and any required software or platforms. Arrive early to address any technical issues. Make sure your phone has a fully charged battery, and grab a pair of headphones for an immersive session.
  10. Share and Connect: If you're attending an in-person workshop, consider introducing yourself to fellow participants. Sharing experiences and building connections can enhance the sense of community and support.
  11. Arrival Time: Plan to arrive a little early for both online and in-person workshops. This allows time for a smooth transition into the workshop setting.

By following these detailed preparations, you'll be well-equipped to make the most of your SOMA Breath workshop. Comfortable clothing, proper hydration, and mindful meal timing, in particular, will support your breathwork experience and overall well-being during the workshop. Enjoy your transformative journey!
