We are in dire need of Powerful Sovereign Sacred Female Energy to rebalance the world we live in. We are life givers, we heal, we love, we share, we are wise and we are powerful.  

It is your sacred duty to realign with your power and reignite what has been dormant for various reasons in your life.  One of the ways in which you can do this, is by shedding old patterns and divesting yourself of old pain, that is holding you back.

Join me, as I host a Breathwork class, Monday, Sept. 21st on Zoom at 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm.

This is your tool for mindfulness, going inward and healing. A practice that is capable of changing your life in just one sessionIt is a dynamic active meditation technique for holistic self-healing, of letting go.  This is a beautiful tool for calming anxiety, de-stressing, processing unresolved pain and healing trauma. Most people leave sessions feeling lighter, clearer, energetic and more connected to their heart centre. 

As we enter the Autumn Equinox on Wed, Sept.23rd, it is the ideal time to clear and to cleanse. It is this time of the year where Mother Nature prepares for a sort of hibernation or death and you might also feel a natural desire of letting things go and create your future experiences based on your present self and not your past.  Allow yourself to shine and remember your true purpose for this planet, at this time. 

Get inspired! Find your inner voice and shed the extra baggage. Reignite your sacred feminine power and join me. Your voice, and your actions count – you are needed! 


“Opportunities in life come by creation, not by chance”

— Yogi Paramahansa Yogananda    

What if I told you – if you can imagine it, feel it, believe it consistently, your life will change.  I’ve mentioned in many of my classes, the subconscious mind cannot distinguish whether you are actually living your dreams and aspirations or if you are just imagining them.  

“Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality”                                                             — Earl Nightingale

 If this quote rings true for you…that would mean what you have been continuously saying and believing about yourself in the past becomes the result of how you are presently living your life today and also how you will live tomorrow.  Think about it … Are the words you speak to yourself, harsh and critical or do you think the world of yourself and believe you are beautiful, smart and all opportunities come your way? 

Being positive proactive dreamers is what our next class will be all about!

Did you know…that recalling a traumatic experience that happened many years ago, affects your physical being today as if it just happened! The subconscious cannot tell the difference between a live event or a re-living of one. The body physically mimics the fears, tears, anxieties and stressors of that past moment. And living in that emotion for long periods of time means you are living in the chemical residue of the past and actually allowing it to become your identity! 

It is a well kept secret, that designed breathing, as a daily ritual will keep you physically and mentally young.

In this class, you will learn the concepts of letting go through Breathwork.  It is important to learn, how to loosen up the emotional charge a past event may have had on you.  Sometimes that event may not appear to be so traumatic to others but it was traumatic to you and that is what counts. Every person is an individual and any event big or small has the weight of change in a positive or negative way.  It’s usually the negative ones that have a hold on us and it is important to learn to let them go, lest they take charge and begin influencing our present and most certainly our future decisions.  Breathwork, has a mechanical aspect to it, but it also has a very transformative side to it as well.  This is where the power to heal yourself on all levels lies. Join me, as we discover one of the most basic yet most inherently powerful tools we own in healing ourselves called…
Your Breath!

Your first class is just the beginning of your personal transformation!
A package of 5 classes entitles to you one free class and is your introduction to learning how to
use the power of your breath for better mental and physical wellbeing!

Your Breathwork Coach,
Karla Gomez de la Peña

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!

Here are the top 5 reasons why…

Please join me
Sat. March 17th, 2018~10am at Studio Volver for the next Breathwork class. (details below)


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. ”

Here are a few tips to help with your winter blues! Hope you enjoy and can put them into practice.

  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. 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….
**And your bonus tip once again is to look yourself in the mirror while staring straight into your eyes and say your first and last name and tell yourself  that you LOVE AND ACCEPT YOURSELF COMPLETELY <3
Have a great weekend!

How strong is the correlation between emotions

“Have you ever wondered just how much impact your state of mind has on your health? This has long been debated, and is somewhat difficult to study empirically. But the short answer, at least according to Ayurveda, is that the mind has a very powerful influence on our overall health and well-being.  The Ayurvedic tradition recognizes that any of these three aspects of self—body, mind, or spirit—can either support or undermine our well-being, making the mind one of three equally influential players in our overall health. Ayurvedically, the mind is a conscious flow of energy that originates in the heart and flows to the brain which creates thought and pervades the body which facilitates sensation, perception and experience. Consider then, even minor disturbances in the mind to be deeply influential, with the very real potential to compromise the quality of our lives, and to more directly cause any number of dis-eases: physical and otherwise.” Melody Mischke for Banyan Botanicals

You might be wondering what Integral Breathwork has to do with feeling happy and being healthy?  To heal ourselves of old traumas/ negative emotions/ hurtful memories consciously or unconsciously affecting us a great idea is to clear them out of our system. When we are able to do this we can truly experience a freedom in our emotional, spiritual, mental, physical existence.  We have the power to transform our lives from an “unhealthy” state to a “healthy” one with Breathwork as a practice.  Oxygen is our tool  to manoeuvre and “wake up” these inner conversations and as they surface, it is our responsibility to face, accept and learn from them to free ourselves. When not cleared it can manifest into feelings of being stuck, anxiety, stress which can ultimately lead to dis-ease in our bodies.   We can change our lives. We do possess the capacity to be anything we think and choose to be and in doing so we are powerful beyond all measure!

Do you believe you are worthy to experience the life you have been dreaming of?  Join me for an incredible Integral Breathwork experience Sat. March 03, 2018 at 10am /80$ @Studio Volver and embark on your amazing journey!
