Choose the “Pay It Forward” price if you wish to help make the work financially accessible for those lower on the scale.

Experience a “full body exhale” into deeper ease and renewal under the light of the Full Flower Moon. Honoring and celebrating all that is blossoming in your heart and life.
Our bodies hold so much. In our Western culture the knowledge of the mind is valued over the wisdom of the body, to the detriment of our health and wellbeing. Thus true healing starts and ends with the somatic connection to our vessel.
The breath works to bridge this gap from head to heart, awakening our nervous system and facilitating somatic release. This class invites you to experience what I call a “full body exhale.” The type of easeful release that comes when we are fully inhabited in our body and clear enough to drop all the weight we are carrying.
Under the light of the May’s Full Moon, you will lean into joy and celebration as a catalyst for healing. The Full Flower Moon is associated with flowers in full bloom, a miracle at the end of a season of change. In this class, you will get an opportunity to fully be with your own miracles in your heart and in your life.
With each exhale we find our way back to our clear, embodied Self.

Breathwork is an active self-healing technique that utilizes the breath as a catalyst for profound personal growth and transformation. The breath is used as a tool to move energy in the body, filtering it through the heart to heal everything from chronic illness, trauma, anxiety, grief, and depression to addictions, creative blocks, and stuck relationships.
By grounding your soul into your body through the somatic experience of the breathwork, you connect deeper to your life purpose, expand intuitive gifts, increase relaxation and simply open up to more joy and fulfillment.
I’ve never done breathwork before, where should I start?
Want to know a secret? First time breathers are my favorite to work with (shhh don’t tell)
The great thing about Breathwork is that it truly meets you where you’re at. I would feel into whether you feel more comfortable in groups or one-on-one sessions. If groups are your jam, a virtual breathwork workshop or in-person event will be a great place to start. If you prefer the personalized attention of a one-on-one, a Breath Discovery Session or Private Breathwork Session will be perfect for you.
I’m nervous about emotions coming up during Breathwork. Is this common?
It is very common for emotions to arise in the breathwork as we pull stuck emotional energy up and out from the lower chakras. You are in complete control of your experience with the breathwork so at any time if the energy is overwhelming you can shift the breath to a normal pattern and slow it down. An individual session would be a great option for you to have extra support.
Can you do the Breathwork daily?
Absolutely! Like any healing practice, the more often you do the work the more it can pay off. If you want to incorporate this work into your daily practice I suggest starting out with 5 minutes of the active breathing pattern followed by 5 minutes of relaxation.
How often should I being doing the Breathwork with you?
I like to compare my Breathwork practice to your car. At-home breathing on your own is like gassing up your car, group healing like virtual or in-person breathwork workshops are like getting a car wash to freshen up and have fun, and individual sessions are akin to an oil-change or getting your car detailed. Ultimately, lean into what feels good for you and please reach out if you would like further guidance.
Does the Breathwork you facilitate have a name?
I am certified and continue to train with my teacher David Elliott in this style of Breathwork. David has spent the past 25+ years developing, refining and sharing his healing modality often referred to as “The Work” in which the Breathwork is a foundational tool. There is no trademarked name as he believes one cannot own this practice. It’s simply called Breathwork.
How does the Breathwork work?
We are constantly experiencing energy throughout our nervous system. Most of us are so addicted to being in our brain and thinking mind that we are deeply disconnected from our physical, spiritual and emotional self. The breath works to bridge this gap and refine the connection between the body and essence or soul. This connection is the wellspring of all healing and forms the foundation of true, lasting personal transformation. It is from this place that we work to release, ground and expand all that you are looking to heal and cultivate in your journey. In a session or group, the breath is ultimately one of several tools that bring about healing. It is the starting point from which the rest of the work can be guided.
