Frequently Asked Questions

What is Breathwork?

Breathwork is an ancient and powerful breathing modality in which the breath is consciously activated and controlled to improve our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. It is a highly effective and inspirational way to move and release stagnant energies in the body.  


How does it work?

Everything - be it our bodies, our thoughts, the foods we eat, or even the illnesses we suffer - radiates an electro-magnetic frequency and in turn produces a lasting resonance. One form of healing that impacts this resonance by raising one's vibrational frequency is breathwork. 

During breathwork, a dramatic increase of oxygen floods the pre-frontal cortex, the area of our brain that is responsible for self-awareness, decision making, and emotion regulation. In turn, a decrease of activity in the amygdala (which regulates our fight or flight response) allows one to integrate old emotional and physiological memories that tend to either drag us down or keep us in an agitated state of anxiety. The increased oxygen flow also elevates the pH of our blood while alkalizing it, thus aiding in the elimination of toxins stored in cells, tissues, and organs throughout the body.

These changes during breathwork often induce profound sensations of calm and relaxed focus, helping us to become balanced, harmonized, and at peace with ourselves and our surroundings. 


What do I need to prepare for a virtual session?

  • Avoid having a heavy meal a couple of hours beforehand as it can be difficult to drop into the expanded state of awareness

  • You will be able to do the session either sitting in a chair or laying down comfortably

    • Feel free to use an eye mask, a pillow and have a blanket close by as body temperature can fluctuate

  • Over the ear headphone are ideal, earbuds also work for optimal sound

  • Make sure your phone is on silent to avoid any disruptions

  • Keep some tissues close by as it can be an emotional experience

  • Come with an intention and what you'd like to work on during the session


What benefits can I expect from Sound Breathwork?

Breathwork can have a truly transformative impact on our lives, especially when practiced consistently as part of one's self-care routine. Such a strong increase in oxygen flow changes the way our body vibrates and provides a plethora of benefits:


  • Releases stress, fear, anxiety

  • Increase in lung capacity

  • Increase heart rate variability

  • Widens window of tolerance

  • Increases autonomic flexibility

  • Increases neuroplasticity

  • Boosts the immune system 

  • Regulates and harmonizes emotions

  • Strengthens the diaphragm

  • Integrates old emotional / behavioral patterns and heightens overall awareness

  • Aids in post traumatic stress disorders and traumas

  • Expands consciousness and connection to the higher self

  • Helps align one to what is most essential in one's life

  • Generates an open state of abundance to support one's physical, mental and emotional needs in this world

Many recent studies have proven that our body has cell memory, holding onto old responses to threats and old patterns of belief. These studies can be found in such great resources: 

  • The Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton, which explains how "every cell has consciousness as well as memory and therefore responds to its environment. Thoughts, beliefs and emotions have vibrational frequencies that are positive, neutral or negative."


  • The Body Keeps the Score by Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, which explains how trauma and pain can change our physiological body and brain, and how those memories are easily triggered after having long been stored and hidden in the body.

As human beings, we are survivors. Each individual has their own story, and we all face challenges and obstacles all along the way. By learning the art of connected conscious breathing, we are able to integrate blockages, move / release pent up energy, promote physical health, elevate our mind, and expand our heart's capacity for love and joy. 


How many sessions do I need?

For those who have not tried breathwork, even one session is revelatory. However, like most things in life, consistency and practice can have a longer, powerful, transformative impact on the overall health of our well-being. Some people find that weekly sessions are beneficial and others prefer monthly sessions. It all depends on how much support you want and what you intuitively feel that your body needs.
