        The Healing Breath

Explore breathwork in a one-on-one session of 1,5 hours | 3 hours or a series of 5 sessions of each 1,5 hours. A time in which you will have all the space to gently expand the breath beyond its tightness and its holdings, into a deep, rich and complete breath.

Private sessions with founder Katrien Franken deepen your capability, self understanding, and compassion to explore new possibilities for growth and connection, no matter where you are in your path. The sessions awaken your inner listening and can give all the guidance and support to re-allign yourself with your life's purpose. 


A session can assist to resolve issues such as depression, anxiety, pain, guilt trauma, self-worth issues, anger, mental problems, relationship issues, addictions, eating disorders, negative patterns and beliefs, blockages in moving forward, and many other problems.


We will use a full diaphragmatic way of breathing that influences the chemistry in the organism in such a way that blocked energy associated to traumatic memories, can be released and becomes available for discharge and processing. We will breathe at your ‘edge’ in a circular way, allowing the unconscious limited breath patterns to be surrendered. This will allow you to experience a deep emotional and physical joy, relaxation and rejuvenation. Even after one session.

As we'll work with the breath, we automatically work with the body, essentially updating the nervous system, and reconnecting that with the brain. They are not separate. As you breathe and relax into what’s arising, you have an opportunity to embrace all aspects of self. It is through surrendering resistance (ego) that we make space for Love. True feelings and emotions will receive space to be expressed – and the closed shadow areas in the body (subconscious), will open up.

Hidden aspects of self, both positive and negative will be revealed. We will look at your breath pattern and how it affects your well-being, allowing you to release blockages in the body, negativity, stress, and tension. We welcome opportunities to face anxiety and the lack of grounded solidity, which leads to developed centeredness in our body, heart and intellect.

Breathwork is about real participation and gives us an opportunity to drop our masks – and be in real connection with ourselves and others. The not-knowing becomes the beginning of your adventure.

Activating the mechanisms in the body will slowly open you to a supported and safe environment where you can attentively listen into that which is seeking to balance itself. What was unexpressed and held in the body comes into conscious awareness where you can face it with wisdom. When old tensions find their expression, you will have access to the natural joy that arises. All it takes is your commitment to breathe, a strong loving intention and to trust the process.
