Held In The Heart


SS_What is Breathwork.jpg

Breathwork, or Pranayama, is a simple, yet profound conscious breathing technique. It is an active meditation used to clear stuck energy in the body, and connect you with your intuition. Breathwork assists in the relief of chronic pain and can drastically reduce stress levels, therefore is highly supportive in overcoming emotional imbalances and/or preventing future illness or dis-ease. This breath purifies the nervous system, eliminates toxins from the body, blood, and mind, and restores balance emotionally, physically, and spiritually.


During an individual session, we work energetically to uncover where and why you are "stuck". With support, safety, and intuitive guidance, you will have the opportunity to go deep within yourself, reconnect to your Heart, and experience profound clarity, peace, and presence.


The breath reflects the condition of the mind and it is a very accurate gauge of one’s mental state. When agitated, for example, our breathing will be very shallow and quick. In the face of fear we often breathe heavily or even hold the breath. When sad or depressed, there will be a deep, sighing breath. It was discovered that by changing the breathing patterns, the mind was also affected and changed. We can direct our prana, our life-force, with our thoughts. The breath and the mind are so intertwined that wherever one goes, the other follows. By sending our thoughts to an affected area, we send our prana.
That is the secret behind self-healing.
