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 and practice pranayama and conscious connected breathing, I have witnessed only positive results mentally, physically and spiritually. No matter how far along the path you are we all have potential moments where we fall into unconscious patterns triggered by stress. When these moments arise, instantaneously our breathing is affected and it activates the fight-or-flight nervous system that releases a stream of stress hormones into our body. 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.
Your choice of Pranayama classes or personal Conscious Connected breathwork
The breath is a gateway for personal transformation. It has a direct effect in turning on our inner switch to the rest and relax response in the body. It’s the fastest tool I know, to move stuck and stagnant energy.
A practice called Conscious connected breathwork 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.

Sound Healing sessions are powerfully transformative. A session is a combination with your intention, various sound tools and transmitted through love. There are two Sound sessions to choose from, depending on what you need, active or passive.
Each Sound Healing sessions benefits the whole body. As sound has always been used to alter consciousness, which helps one person to go deep into relaxation.
An active session is when the client wants to release trauma or stuck energy. The incoherent vibration (energy block) transforms through dialogue, as we track into back into the root of the problem. The client is fully engaged in this participation.
A passive session is for those who feel exhausted, stressed and is in need of deep relaxation. The client shares their intention, and then simply let’s go. The sound does the rest of the work, to help rejuvenate and replenish the body.
With an open heart and mind, you will feel better than before you came in. Sound Healing is a way to transform blocked energy, emotions and trauma.
