Interesting facts about breathing and oxygen...
  • Over 90% of the body's energy comes from breathing
  • Breathing releases 70% of the body's toxins
  • Accumulated toxins in the body lowers our resistance to illness and disease
  • The human body is about two-thirds oxygen
  • We are in a hurry most of the time. Our movements and breathing follow this pattern and we get into the habit of shallow breathing - taking in quick short breaths.
  • Anxiety, worry, anger, and other negative emotional states affect our rate of breathing, causing it to be fast and shallow.
  • Shallow breathing can cause fatigue, sleep disorders, anxiety, stomach upsets, heart burh, gas, muscle cramps, dizziness, visual problems, chest pain, and hart palipitations
  • Lack of sufficient oxygen to the cells is a major contributing factor in cancer, heart disease, and strokes.
  • Most people only use 10-20% of their lung capacity.
  • Deep breathing increases the oxygen levels in the blood, which strengthens our immune systems.
  • Breathing controls the flow of the lymphatic system. Lymphatic cells release toxins from the body. The body has four times more oymphatic fluids than blood.
  • 200 years ago our air was composed of 38% oxygen and 1% carbon dioxide. Today because of pollution and other factors, the air we breath is 19% oxygen and 25% carbon dioxide.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does a group Breathwork session look like?

Introduction to Breathwork workshops begin with a discussion of how oxygenation affects the body, the causes and effects of shallow breathing, and why deep breathing is important. We also discuss the benefits of Breathwork and teach you the connected breathing technique, sometimes referred to as Rebirthing-Breathwork. Then each person lays down (fully clothed) on a mat or blanket and we breath using the connected breath with no pause between the inhale and exhale. The breathing portion lasts about an hour. Then we share and discuss our experiences from the Breathwork. The whole event lasts about two and a half hours.

What if I want to have a private Breathwork session instead of breathing in a group?

Some people may feel uncomfortable in a group setting, as Breathwork can bring up emotions stored in the body and can stimulate forgotten or repressed memories. Private Breathwork sessions are offered as well. Please send me an email or call and we can schedule a session.

What does a private Breathwork session look like?

Private Breathwork sessions involve a consultation and approximately an hour of connected breathing. In the consultation you and I will have the opportunity to discuss where you are in your life right now and how I as your Breathworker can best support you. All information collected from you is for the goal of supporting you in resolving current issues and changing undesirable patterns. The first session typically lasts 2-1/2 to 3 hours. Future sessions last 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Send me an email or call to schedule a session or get more information.

A Breathworker is a professionally trained facilitator who guides your breath in a way that will enable you to process what occurs during the session.
