I’m an empath, a highly sensitive person, and an introvert with hermit-y tendencies.
I fucking FEEL things. And lots of those things hurt.
Breathwork lets me work through all those emotions (plus every last news article, social media comment, political stunt, and stint of gross weather) without totally and completely melting down. In under an hour, with no side effects, no drugs — and most importantly — no leaving the house. ::insert conspiratorial smirk here::
That sounds too good to be true. I know.
The first time I did breathwork, I was *sure* the session was four minutes long and that the teacher had screwed up somehow.
NOPE, the class was a full fifty minutes in length. But…how? And where did I go, and why was my body so happy and alive?
That WHAT IS THIS MAGIC reaction is typical of breath work: time gets wibbly, your body does new things, and you let all kinds of shit go in what seems like just a few minutes. By breathing. JUST breathing.
Breathwork is one part lying down and two parts breathing while a guide like myself walks you through the process. It sounds *so* simple, but it’s the most powerful form of healing I’ve ever done.
That’s why I’ve been certified as a breathwork teacher, why I’ve been completing class once a week since I found out about it, and why I won’t shut up about it to everyone I know.
Breathwork is a form of active meditation that unfolds using a 3-part breath while you’re lying down. If you can a.) breathe and b.) lie down, you can do it.
All the energetic gunk, garbage, and goo that accumulates simply from being a human in the world (read: all things emotional, political, tragic, frustrating, and despair-inducing) can move through your body without using words or drugs of any kind.
You lie down, you breathe, your shit gets sorted out. It really is that simple and that profound.
Bonus: your softest, wisest, and most intuitive self is waiting just beneath the breath with a shit-ton of answers.
Fragments of poems, solutions to long-held problems, and oh-yes-of-course revelations have appeared to me when I’ve been willing to surrender an hour at a time to doing this work.
Healing in the modern world is depicted as a long, drawn-out, painful process that will take years — if not decades — of slog.
I’m all about learning (and healing) through joy and with as much ease as possible.
We can reclaim our wholeness with plenty of time left over for showering. And we can laugh while we’re doing it.
This healing thing can be simple, painless, and pleasurable, and your admittance to altered awareness can happen without being in a cave, an ashram, or in attendance at Burning Man. (Though one day, I’m *totally* going to Burning Man.)
“I’ve done it before, thought I knew how it would be, was all like yeah, whatever but then BOOM. I feel more connected to myself, more forgiving, and softer, which is helping me feel the same toward others.” — Sarah Prall
“It was such an amazing feeling to process my feelings from a place of safety and non-judgment. My world has shifted on its axis. I can’t quite put into words how, but, I feel a well spring of confidence in me, in my ability to take up space unapologetically.” — Amita Rao
“You are genuine so it never felt weird or forced…just like a great friend helping me access my quiet…my “settle”. Forever and a million years you are my favorite thing I found in all my falling aparts.” — Stephanie Tanner

“There is no way that I would have ever thought this was possible, even though my soul was dying where it was. I would have just let it die. So thank you, for saving my soul.”—Amanda Perris
