It was in 2014 that I stumbled into Breathwork by pure luck.
It felt like I had found something familiar yet long forgotten:
A sense of coming home, all at once ancestral & new.
I immediately integrated Breathwork as a part of my “routines.”
It is a very potent way to forge a mind-to-body connection.
It is hard to trace back the origins of the particular Breathwork : it stands alongside the ancient traditions like Pranayama & newer modalities like Holotropic.
What is Breathwork?
In 2 words, it is an active meditation.
It helps connect to the radical aliveness that we all carry.
It is a 3 part breath that quickly connects you to your inherent wisdom & energy.
Breath has been recognized across time & cultures as a powerful tool for healing, connecting to self, and achieving altered states of consciousness.
It allows one’s mind to access non-verbal parts of one’s being; would they be lodged somewhere in the physical body or the subconscious.
What to expect?
Everyone is different & there is not one answer fits all.
To follow a (none exhaustive) short list:
Connection to body: physical release, embodied healing, sense of dislodging something that had been “stuck”.
Connection to spirit: Some might call it inner wisdom, joy and/or also shadow.
Breathwork is a way to connect dots that our modern world taught us to keep separate, a way to tend to our entire system and feel fully human.
Are you a Trained Facilitator?
I followed a rigorous training with the Breath Liberation Society in 2021.
This organization honors the heritage & roots of this ancient tradition.
It underlines as well the responsibilities of the facilitator during the sessions, with a particular dedication to create a container for clients who might have experienced traumas.
How do you identify?
I am a white-body cisgender woman.
I use she/her as pronouns.
WHAT DOES A BREATHWORK SESSION LOOK LIKE?
We will start by talking and creating a container for your active breath that will last up to 45 minutes.
We will dedicate time at the end for you to rest or debrief.
HOW DOES YOUR SLIDING SCALE WORK FOR BREATHWORK?
You will see on the appointment section, 6 different tiers.
Simply book a time slot according to the fee that makes sense for you.
On the back end, I manage how many appointments for each tier I can afford to balance my practice.
WHAT IS PAY IT FORWARD?
It is for those of you with abundant resources and/or a desire to support sliding scale so more people with different resources
can have access to the same services of care & healing.
CAN YOU COMBINE COACHING & BREATHWORK?
Yes! One can work without the other, and the 2 combined are awesome.
I can guide you through it all to Taylor with you what could work the best for you.
ARE YOU “TRAUMA INFORMED”?
Yes & No.
Yes because I did, and still do, spend a fair amount of my time
learning to develop my understanding & awareness to be able to
hold, acknowledge, recognize, step aside, step up and step down when
No, because I am not a licensed therapist & our work together can never replace trauma-informed psychotherapy.
