I once had an experience in Taos New Mexico (10,000 feet above sea level, which may have been a factor) that I was gasping for air during a Breathwork session. I felt fear when that happened.
If you ever have an experience like this, as well, my advice is to allow yourself to remember that you are getting enough air in “this reality”, drop into the fear and see where it takes you…processing through fear is one of the most powerful experiences possible in Breathwork. Also, you might try working with the breath and see if you can modify it a bit to eliminate or reduce this issue while still having deep experiences. For example, you might try breathing deeply but at a normal pace instead of faster or even deeply but a bit slower than normal and see what happens.
