Breathwork is an incredible powerful healing modality.

It can bring you into very deep states of yourself, a trance like state, only using your breath. In a short time you can explore a heightened state of presence and self-awareness. With this specific conscious connected breathing technique you are moving your energy, and with that you probably get in touch with your thought- patterns, emotions and experiences beyond your mind.

You get the possibility to dive deep into your subconscious, moving stuck energy or traumas and let go of mental projections. Breathwork is a powerful medicine and deep work, it opens up, brings more aliveness and helps to shift your energy to bring more awareness to yourself and complete some healing in yet unresolved places.

In this breathwork training, we are focusing on a deep understanding of the breath, and its power including a profound holistic approach and working with intuition.

In the breathing we integrate gentleness, softness and opening, rather than catharsis. Supporting the nervous system to regulate and move out of the freeze state. Yet we deeply touch on the embodiment of emotions, prior to the breathwork sessions.

Each facilitator has to go through a personal journey embodying their own breath, to be able to guide a client into a save space of healing.

Safety is of highest priority. Holding space for others in order to heal requires a deep understanding of behaviours and patters, you will learn how to read your clients breaths and how your clients life patterns are reflected in the way he breathes. Integration, is as big as the breathing part itself. You will learn how to work with rituals, get familiar with the energy system, and learn how to use the powerful source of mother earth.

This training includes deep personal work and requires a strong commitment.

"Wow, what a beautiful experience. Mela's devotion to passing on her knowledge about breathwork touches me deeply. Throughout the training, I felt very inspired by her authenticity and integrity. Mela has provided a safe container in which we all could go on a deep personal journey whilst learning how to hold space for such transformational work ourselves. I feel very grateful for all that I have learned and I can fullheartedly recommend the training to anyone willing to dive deep." Stephan, Austria

About us

My name is Mela Mariposa, and I'm the founder of SVARA.

I'm very passionate about creating sacred spaces for humans to connect and go deep into their personal transformation.

My main focus in working with people is creating a safe field for connection. I believe only then we are able to come into a space of healing. Nature has been my biggest teacher, and brings so much wisdom and simplicity. For me it became essential to include all these teachings and working very close with rituals and ceremonies and giving the word prayer a new meaning.

One of the main meanings of the word svara, is the sound of the breath, and that's what caught me.

The word swara or svara (Sanskrit: स्वर) is derived from the root svr which means "to sound".

The word also appears in the Upanishads, where the cyclic rise and setting of sun and world, is referred to as "the music of spheres", and the sun is stated to be "humming the wheel of the world".[6] According to Ananda Coomaraswamy, the roots "svar", meaning "to shine".

Svara for us means the sound between the space, when we become aware of each breath, with all our sensses and being the breath of mother nature.
