Opening the mind, body and spirit
with the breath
For health, rejuvenation, and spiritual renewal
Breathwork is a self help method using the breath, music, sound and the presence of a facilitator to allow you an experience of Self.
Using techniques from Reichian breath therapy and from spiritual practices,  you are taught a circular breathing method called the connected breath. With the energy of the breath you embark on an inner journey into your soul.

Throughout history many cultures have used the breath for self-healing and transcendent experiences.  Research shows that conscious rhythmic breathing benefits  physical health and general well being.  In the Breathwork experience, you will breathe actively, consciously and rhythmically in a relaxed manner for approximately one hour.  You will be guided to breathe into areas where the breath flow is restricted clearing blocks to a full breath.  The facilitator uses affirmations, music, toning, and touch to support and guide you to gently allow your breath to open.  On the wave of the rhythm of the breath you will journey inwardly.  You will be assisted to integrate the benefits of that journey which may give you tools to transform your life.
