Water Breath Training
Water Breath was developed by LiOr Jacob at Passion University, where he conducted Passion Breath sessions in body-temperature water. Students loved it even more than land-based sessions. On land, the body holds itself up against gravity. In Water Breath, the muscles, joints, and internal organs relax due to the water’s and the helper’s support. The relieving pressure and the warmth of the water improve blood flow and lymphatic circulation. The synchronized breaths induce waves that harmonize the body systems. Students experienced a significant increase in both neuromuscular and neurorespiratory integration.
Water Breath implements the principles of Passion Breath. When the breather is in Space-Breath, the body is in relaxed stillness supported by the helper, creating a deep meditative state. When the breather is in Flow-Breath, the body waves freely in the water, allowing for a natural and gradual opening of energy channels. When the breather is in Rapture-Breath, the body ripples in refined vibrations, allowing for powerful energies to move through the spine and the entire body. The fluid medium enables the breather to naturally move between physical, mental, and emotional states.
Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Healing The physiological changes and mental relaxation induces a liberating experience that also helps to go beyond preconceived limitations and constrictions. It invokes high states of exhilaration and a long-lasting sense of well-being. Water Breath also allows for the natural release of emotions. The caring presence and compassionate touch of the helper give the breather a nurturing container to heal and integrate these natural expressions. Thanks to the similarity with being in the womb, many people experience lively birth and prenatal memories, which provide a deep insight into their life journey.
Unlike other aquatic healing modalities that are based on bodywork methods such as Shiatsu and massage, Water Breath is based on breathwork, which accesses more refined levels. Water Breath’s other uniqueness is that the helper’s main role is to be a supporting and nurturing container to the breather’s journey. The breather is the one who is actively breathing, stretching, and dancing effortlessly in the water. In other aquatic modalities, the breather is passive, and the practitioner actively does the bodywork. Water Breath thus helps students to develop their own independent mechanisms of self-healing, encourages the pure expression of their authentic passion, and connects them with their inner wisdom.

Moments of stillness and peace… followed by moments of energy flow, stretching, breathing, vibrating, dancing. You become one with the water and connect to your inner being.
