Breath Sessions

It might sound silly to think of having someone coach your breathing right? If you’re not breathing you would be dead, yet sometimes the world can easily move us out of our centre which has a direct effect on our breathing.

After a decade of teaching pranayama and yoga training, as well as two decades of personal daily yoga practice, including both Pranayama and conscious-connected breathing, I realise that regardless of how much practice we have, we all have that potential moment to fall into unconscious patterns triggered by stress. As soon as we have this experience it instantaneously affects the breathing and activates the fight-or-flight nervous system. This, in turn, ignites a stream of stress hormones, which us out of our centre.

As soon as we have this experience it instantaneously affects the breathing and activates the fight-or-flight nervous system. This, in turn, ignites a stream of stress hormones, which impact our physical and mental state of being. The body is a mirror to our nervous system. There is no outer switch to the system; it works from the inside out. When we are stressed or holding incoherent emotions (fear, doubt, anger, etc.), this turns on the sympathetic nervous system, affecting the proper functioning of all the body’s systems. This includes your breathing.

My breath coaching supports any and all persons, regardless of previous yoga or breathing experience. I support those who want to make changes in their life but feel stuck, those who want to heal themselves (it worked for me!), or to cultivate more awareness and peace in life.

For when we breath deeper, the whole body not only gets oxygenated, but it also helps provide nourishment to the cells and, in turn, our body. It’s the way we can turn on the inner switch to the parasympathetic (rest-and-repair) nervous system. Just reflect on when you’re feeling stressed compared to how your body feels after taking a deep breath.

All sessions are available through Skype or in person. A complimentary 20-minute consultation is offered to all those interested.

The Breathe is a gateway for personal transformation. It has a direct effect in turning on our parasympathetic nervous system to rest and relax. The fastest tool I know of to move stuck and stagnant energy.

A practice called Conscious connected breath work is what has been adopted from an earlier breath practice called rebirthing. Both of these practices share a common link. The breather keeps a continuous rhythmic breath for 15-45 min. As one keeps a regular breath rate, it awakens old thoughts, feeling and emotions. The continuation of breathing helps to move these subconscious stuck energies from our body. It alters consciousness and awakens various brain states.
