Breathwork is a powerful, active, sustained pranayam (breath control) technique that encourages the release of stuck energy, old traumas, deep wounds and negative emotions so that we can step into being our authentic, dynamic, creative and loving selves.
My first experience with Breathwork was on a high school (elective) field trip to try the breath as a way to come home to our bodies ( I was 18 years old and had no idea what I was getting into). It was a profound experience that intrigued me yet I didn’t try it again until around 2009. I again had an amazing, uplifting experience that second time and yet again left it. In 2016 I came back to the breath for good. I started attending group Breathwork more frequently and experienced more change in the span of a week than I had in the past 5 years. I was hooked. Just practicing once a month or so wasn’t enough so in 2017 I went to New Mexico to experience the training with my teacher David Elliot. It was 5 days of breathing and experiencing deep catharsis but what was most inspiring was that I got a very clear message there in the desert of New Mexico that I was to pursue leading groups of people through Breathwork as a space holder for them to freely express and release what has been holding them back from reuniting with their true selves. I came back to Brooklyn energized, inspired and determined to engage as many people as possible with this powerfully healing spiritual work.
I now lead groups and private sessions in the Brooklyn area and have witnessed my own teaching grow in ways I’d never imagined. Breathwork has changed me for the better and I am forever grateful to be doing this work.
