*Testimonial by Lorelei Alvarez, PhD. E-RYT 500
Shawn’s Restoring Prana breath training was one of the best investments I have ever made in myself
and was life changing in so many ways. Shawn has been my yoga therapist for many years, working withme mainly on getting out of chronic pain and recovery from past trauma. A couple of years ago, I wasdealing with some serious medical issues related to allergies and asthma including breaking out in
chronic, full-body hives, constant chest tightness, and worsening of asthma symptoms. I went to
multiple doctors, and no one could adequately explain what was happening. I was prescribed multiple
antihistamines, along with inhaler, epi-pen just in case, and sent on my way. Naturally, I asked Shawn fora consultation since he had been able to help me with so many other issues. The first session, he
assessed my breath and explained that I was over-breathing. Later, I learned that I had been chronicallyhyperventilating, probably for most of my life. My yoga practice, which had helped me physically,mentally, emotionally, and spiritually in so many other ways, had not helped me with breath, as theyogic breathing I had been practicing encouraged over-breathing. After a few months of working withShawn on reducing my breath (called subtle breathing), and building my tolerance to CO2, my hives cleared, and many of my other symptoms started to resolve.
When Shawn decided to offer a 12-month training on the techniques he was using following Robin
Rothenberg’s book and workbook, “Restoring Prana”, I immediately signed up because I wanted to divemore deeply into restoring my own breath and be able to share that experience with others. The 12months of training were intense, challenging, and amazing. Turns out, it’s about so much more than
breath. How we breathe is really just a reflection of our subtle energy or prana and how we show up inthe world. Restoring Prana is about evaluating and reflecting on every aspect of our lives as well as
continual practice with the breath. I already knew that Shawn was an amazing teacher, friend, and
guide, so I was willing to dive deep with total trust. His patience and gentle guidance were exactly what I needed to be honest with myself, with him, with my family and friends, and with my work to find better balance in my life and restore my prana. By the time I completed the training with Shawn, my health was restored, I hadn’t used my inhaler in months, and my energy was fantastic. I cannot say enough good things about this program and about Shawn as a wonderful guide for this journey.
