Breathing in its beautiful simplicity is the fundamental essence of our being, necessary for life and creativity. Breath-work, as a technique for purification, meditation and relaxation, is a cornerstone of any effective health and wellness program.
Conscious awareness of breathing has deep importance to our understanding of the energetic aspects of our multi-leveled human nature. In Sanskrit terms, ”Prana” is the flow of life force energy through the breath. Conscious yogic breathing techniques have been practiced in the East for millenniums to purify the physical body, mind, and emotions.
The Buddha also taught that this conscious observation of the breath eventually leads to the knowledge of self-liberation. As you experience freedom with your breath, you also release energy blockages and ultimately you can heal your life.
What is “Breath- work”?
Breath-work is comprised of a series of safe, powerful and gentle breathing techniques that enable you to release energy around negative conditioned beliefs, sub conscious attitudes, and past behavior and relationship patterns.
Most non-supportive thoughts and feelings can be transformed quickly and efficiently since the breathing process works on a subconscious and “cellular” level unaffected by your conscious, “aware” mind. Breath-work may resonate for you if you:
- Want to become clear on what you want in your life and are ready to create it.
- Want to change unhealthy patterns in relationships, work, health or finances.
- Want to take your life to a more powerful, satisfying and successful level.
Why does it “work”?
Your thoughts and emotions are your creative engines. Thoughts lead to feelings, which lead to creative actions. The situation that you experience in your life in this moment began as a thought, powered by an emotional charge. The verbal conditioning, modeling, and specific incidents you are exposed to color this process in a unique and powerful manner for you as an individual.
The physical body can hold memories in your cells. Consider that the imprints of traumas, negative, frightening thoughts or emotional situations that have occurred throughout your life may be “stored” in your muscles and organs.

If it is not cleared, the resulting stress can ultimately lead to various types of disease that can occur in the physical body. As a healing modality, Breath-work provides:
- A direct and focused method to clear your subtle energy field
- Transformation of non supportive thoughts and feelings that may be compromising your physical health
- A release of limited belief patterns that stifle your achievement, creative expression or enjoyment.
- An opening to the potential to create a more enjoyable satisfied life.
