What is BREATHWORK?
Breathwork is a powerful active meditation (with roots in Pranayamic & Holotropic traditions) using a 2-part fast-paced breath. It's so helpful for connecting to your body (because we all know how hard that can be but how powerful when we can or do), moving stuck energy, opening your heart and connecting to your intuition and embodied wisdom & memory. It is an incredible tool for moving through embodied traumatic experience, anxiety, depression, blocked emotional energy and so much more. It's also for everyone, even if you have panic attacks, even if you have asthma, even if you experience chronic pain. (And maybe most especially.) You'll feel a sense of clarity, focus, creativity, some calm, connection to your inner wisdom and more.
Part of why I love Breathwork so much is that it reminds us we all, each of us, hold the power within ourselves to shift and heal parts of ourselves and our past experiences even when the world is a mess. It's the little shifts that I'm hoping can ease the pain and grief we carry around. These shifts are literally rooted in our own breath coupled with the radical witnessing and presence of another person. It is for sure BreathWORK but in a non-capitalist sense because you get all the benefits turned right back to you and you can take the tool with you to work with at any point. It's not easy: it's a very active and disciplined meditation but it's worth it. There are tools happening but at its core, it's you and the breath; the breath is the medicine. It is a psychedelic and transcendent experience.
I'm dedicating the work to queer, trans and gender non-conforming people largely because I know how difficult it is to find safe(r), accessible spaces to move towards a bit of healing and because I know in this fractured world, if we don't do it for each other, who else will!? And i'll be working hard to do this through trauma-informed and harm reduction lenses. Of course I also welcome everyone who wants to get their self- healing on.
What To Expect:
We will start with a short conversation and then get into the breathing. I'm there to guide you through the 75 minute session with the breath, oils, incense* & an energizing and introspective playlist and close with a little reflection.
If You're in NYC:
I see clients in my studio on Wednesdays and Fridays. You can book a session here.
If You're Anywhere Besides NYC:
I offer virtual sessions no matter where you are in the world. Breathwork is amazing because while I am guiding you, you are the one doing the work and so you can get the full benefits of the experience from the comfort of your own home. You just need a strong internet connection and a Spotify account and we are all set!
