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.
Why do I want a Breathworker?
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. You will be guided and supported through emotional releases, thoughts, and memories that may surface, as well as through physical sensations that you may experience during the session. Your professional Breathworker is highly skilled at helping you trace complex issues in your life to the origins of your subconscious mind, and with this information, supporting you in finding solutions and resolutions.
Where did this Breathwork technique originate?
