F A Q s

I AM NEW TO BREATH WORK, WHAT CAN I EXPECT?

There is no set or predictable experience during or after a session. Since you are an individual, your experience will reflect your uniqueness. The characteristics of this technique is different than any other breathing technique. In comfortable clothing, lying on your back with your eyes closed, you will be guided in a pace that allows all your cells to become completely oxygenated, releasing any stored toxins. We stimulate the release by massaging parts of your body. In the full flow of breathwork, we don’t pause in between the inhalation and exhalation. This might cause you to feel a tingling sensation in your body as the energy pushes through the energetic blocks. The more you can surrender to the process, the more you’ll enter a state where you are breathing the breath, purifying every cell and atom of your body. 

We end the session with a time of stillness, to give your body and mind the opportunity to adjust to the biological and energetic changes.

WHAT IS CONNECTIVE BREATHING?

Simply speaking, the breaths are literally connected. That means there are no pauses between the inhales and the exhales. The connected pattern of conscious breathing is

a natural, safe and easy–to-learn technique.
