Flow Breathwork Waiver
If you are new to breathwork, I strongly encourage you to take your first few classes/sessions easy. There’s no winning in breathwork and breathing hard and fast is not necessarily better or deeper. If you’re not a runner, you wouldn’t run a marathon tomorrow without training. Breathwork with Faye Cornhill is similar. Start slow and get to know your breath and your body.
Please take note of the contraindications of breathwork noted below within this Participation Waiver & Liability Release which you must read and full understand before taking part in a class. As a precaution, if you experience any of these contraindications, please consult your doctor before you participate in this work. You can also email me with any questions.
- I will be playing the music and my voice through Zoom. You can access zoom via a laptop/computer or phone. Please ensure you have downloaded and understand Zoom before the class starts. If you are using a phone please ensure you’ve silenced any alerts and that you cannot be disturbed during class.
- Sound is important, and I recommend that you use headphones for the session – this way you can block out any external sounds.
- Please find a space, ideally within your home, for class. It’s important that you won’t be disturbed. I recommend a yoga mat on the floor or lying on a bed. Have a blanket to hand so that you can cover yourself and avoid getting cold. I also recommend an eye mask to keep light to a minimum. Do not have a big pillow under your head, it’s important that you are lying flat.
- I recommend avoiding any food for the hour before class. Have some water on hand in case you feel thirsty.
