Breathe ~ Learn ~ Heal

An immersive weekend training in the healing work of intuitive healer David Elliott.

Learn the core principles of Breathwork and the healing work in the first of four levels needed to become a certified facilitator in David Elliott’s method of healing.

After this class, you will walk away ready to facilitate the 2-part Pranayama Breathwork technique, with a stronger connection to your intuition, a greater confidence in your talents as a healer, and a deep understanding of how the heart heals through self-love.

The weekend includes:

    • Extensive discussion on how and why the breath works to heal, as well as what a healer is
    • Partnered exercises and breakout sessions to practice working with clients and facilitate your own healing
    • Hands-on experience with holding effective space and using all of David’s tools.
    • Exercises designed to strengthen your intuition and bring out your unique talents as a healer
    • Demonstration of advanced techniques to target negative thought forms in the body and assist in their release.

Required homework: Please read David’s book The Reluctant Healer and answer all of the questions throughout in order to be prepared for this training. Also, practice David’s Breathwork meditations found on Spotify or his website, especially his Entity Energy Release Meditation.

Highly recommended homework: Read David’s book Healing and answer the questions throughout.

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
