Breathwork and Breathing Exercises Safety Policy

March 2023

Introduction At Airheads Life Limited, we strive to provide valuable information and suggestions for breathwork and breathing exercises. However, it is essential for you to understand the potential risks involved and follow certain guidelines to ensure your safety. Our masterclass speakers are not medical professionals, and the advice given should not be considered as medical advice. It is essential to consult with a healthcare professional before starting any breathwork practice.

Hyperventilation Hyperventilation is a breathing pattern characterized by rapid, deep breaths that can lead to an imbalance of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the body. This can cause symptoms such as dizziness, lightheadedness, tingling, and even fainting. It is crucial to avoid hyperventilation while standing, driving, or near water, as it may lead to a loss of consciousness and potential harm.

Hypoventilation Hypoventilation is a breathing pattern characterized by slow, shallow breaths. It can lead to an imbalance of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the body, potentially causing a stress response. It is essential to be aware of this possibility and listen to your body's signals while practicing slow breathing techniques.

Risks and Precautions Certain individuals should take extra precautions or avoid specific types of breathwork altogether. These include:

  1. Pregnant or potentially pregnant women: Refrain from practicing strong breathwork, hyperventilation, and breath holds.
  2. People with epilepsy or high blood pressure: Avoid certain types of breathwork that may exacerbate these conditions.
  3. Mental health concerns: Be aware that strong breathwork and hyperventilation can lead to emotional outbursts, feelings of vulnerability, and trauma release. Approach these practices with caution and listen to your body.

Movement During the masterclass, our speakers may offer suggestions on movement. However, it is essential to listen to your body and move at your own pace. As our speakers do not know you or your physical limitations, it is crucial to prioritize your safety and well-being.
