Everyday you have a unique opportunity to choose whether you will be a magnficient creator of your day or a destroyer of it. And with this knowledge, lies the responsibility in bringing your shadows to the light. By choosing to see your discord and bringing attention to it, you will become stronger, clearer, and more accepting of your human experience. You can then choose this intelligence and adopt it to your front line and become more aware, compassionate and mindful with yourself, your family and your community.
We can guide you.
Through Breathwork you will learn to release deep seated unresolved emotions stored in your subcsoncious and within the tissues of your body. We will help you maneuver these discoveries by creating a safe environment where acceptance, trasformation and healing can occur on the deepest levels.
Sound is Vibrational healing and one of the oldest healing techniques known to man. For thousands of years sound has been a proven method for increasing one’s awareness. The humming of your own voice, the sound of water, the sound of a gong or a singing bowl, wind or song of a bird can serve as a powerful bridge to the present, the place where awareness lies, the moment at hand. Awareness then allows you to notice downbeat thinking, to stop yourself and challenge it and replace it with a positive outlook.

I had a moment where I suffered intensely from anxiety about 3 years ago and Breathwork literally grounded me and helped me release the anxiety I had built up within me that expressed itself as psoriasis. In the process of learning to breathe, not only did I find myself, I was also able to release my harboured anxious feelings that had lead to my psoriasis and heal. It was so intense!
I wanted to share, for those of you that are experiencing some hardship which may have manifested either physically or emotionally, that you can do something about your current state. It takes patience, being kind and forgiving yourself. It also takes wanting to look deeply at your subconscious and starting a journey of undoing core beliefs most likely installed from childhood and then learning to release them through meditative breathing.
It isn’t easy to face yourself but it is so worth it. You’ll be freer than you’ve ever felt and open to making decisions based on your own energy and not be burdened with past experiences. This post is about teaching your kids to breathe fully and deeply early on and learning to return to the breath for comfort and healing no matter what age you are currently at.
Here are 3 basic tips to watch out for along while integrating a Breathwork practice to be present and fully enjoy your life.
Hope to see you in class!
With courage and love,
P.S. Pls feel free to contact me if you my have any questions!
We are going back to basics in this next class, discovering what we should have learned as children in coping with our daily ups and downs.
1: Relaxation is a life skill – you need to learn how to relax in order to get really good at it. And I don’t mean grabbing a bag of chips and sitting on the couch watching tv all night. That is def. not relaxing especially if you are watching some intense dramas. I mean being able to release suffering brought on by your inability to let things go. Most people tend to ruminate and let dramas/ traumas / experiences run through their minds, keeping them as fresh memories they can’t let go off. Each and every time you rehash an event you are telling your subconscious mind and your physical and emotional body that it is happening again in the present time! That can be really damaging and definitely keeps you in a stranglehold. You can’t move forward bc you are stuck in the past and the present just doesn’t exist for you. Meditation through breath is an excellent way to learn to fully relax preparing you to handle come what may.
2: You are probably carrying massive amounts of tension in your body and aren’t even aware of it! When you try to relax does it feels painful or perhaps even more tense? Is your relaxation short lived and interrupted? When you feel an ache in your shoulder or back it usually means you’ve been ignoring your inner dialogue, by the time it feels like it is a normal part of your daily life, it is considered tension at a chronic level. Your physical body might be as hard as a board and inflexible and your mind totally fixed and rigid with stress at the root of so many ailments and malaises. Learning to relax into your tension through breath during stressful moments is the key to reshaping your breathing patterns. That then helps to release the tension in your body and your mind, allowing you to be more fluid and able to act consciously instead of reacting automatically.
3: At rest, in a relaxed state, the body breathes very little. When you are completely and utterly relaxed, you are in a state of repair, it is when you have the most influence for healing emotionally, physiologically. Strenuous physical demands being made on the body, calls for strenuous breathing which your body automatically activates. In moments of relaxation you can choose to breathe in a myriad of ways affecting your health positively. In Breathwork, in a relaxed state, we deliberately choose to supply the body with extra amounts of breath energy in order to experience change on a physical, mental and emotional level. This extra breath energy can release thoughts and beliefs once buried under all the tensions that have built up in the body over the years. It is a vital key to awakening you to the present and healing yourself one breath at a time by learning to release energies, thoughts, moments that no longer serve you.
Join me in my next Breathwork class and learn to start releasing repressed emotions, disappointments, frustrations, anger, and fear and fully engage in being healthy, happy and living in joy!

“1: Breathwork is the art and science of applying breath awareness exercises and conscious breathing techniques as a bridge, a force, and a tool for health, growth, and change—in spirit, mind, and body.
2: Breathwork is a combination of ancient wisdom and modern science. It is an intuitive art, a healing art, a creative art, a revolutionary and evolutionary art. It represents the cutting edge of the human potential movement.
3: In one form or another, breathwork is used in almost every holistic-health and alternative-care program. It represents the cream of the crop of self improvement and personal growth methods. It can be found at the cutting edge of the human potential movement, and at the heart of the world peace movement.
4: Breathing is the language of the soul. You can communicate with the breath, and you can turn to it for information. And you can actually learn to breathe from the breath itself! It is literally a source of inspiration, and the key to peace and power, oneness and wholeness.
5: In every moment, the breath is nourishing us. It is continuously working to keep us alive. It is working to help us to move and to function. It gives us the power to think and to create. And in every moment, it is reflecting and expressing the truth of our being. It reveals our state of our health and the level of our consciousness. ”

In love and courage,
Here are a few tips to help with your winter blues! Hope you enjoy and can put them into practice.
- Lift your mood first thing in the morning, as you open your eyes whilst still lying in bed, by listing three things you are grateful for in your life! They can be the same three every morning for as long as you like. This practice shifts your mood for the day and is especially important when going through a tough situation.
- Through out the day, watch your breathing as often as you can and remember to breathe from your belly– that wave breath comes in really handy when you are in the midst of a stressful or anxious day. The more often you are present to how you actually breathe, allows you to start changing your breathing pattern and retraining your breathing centre. Soon breathing fully and being present in your breath and in your day will just be second nature!
- And lastly, just before you doze off into that wonderful Shangri-la Never Never Land, leave the most beautiful lasting impressions for your subconscious to absorb and reprogram itself ALLLL NIGHT … you can do this by telling yourself the most wonderful I AM-isms about yourself every night … you could ideally say some I am’s about things you are struggling with ..i.e: your weight, focus, concentration, maybe a drinking or smoking habit you want to break, maybe you feel less than beautiful, maybe you don’t feel so smart … what ever it might be you would say to yourself in your mind:
I am smart, I am a beautiful person, I am healthy, I am free of smoking, I am able to say no, I am the ideal weight for my body, I am positive, I am happy, I am in love myself – I truly love myself, I am the best sleeper – I sleep through the night, I am a great communicator- I communicate my inner most thoughts with ease and confidence, I am able to focus and finish my daily tasks….
