On the physical level, breathwork promotes oxygenation. It moves the pranic energy up from the base of the spine, thereby freeing and releasing physical and emotional blockages that are contained in the body. On the energetic level, as the blockages are removed, the body’s natural pranic energy flows more freely and greater health and vitality are naturally experienced.

A typical Breathwork experience lasts for two hours, with ninety minutes being focused solely on the breathing mechanism. No two sessions are ever the same and the experience can vary drastically physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually from one session to the next.
Many people experience the process in stages with the beginning being the most challenging and the end being almost euphoric. Physically (especially toward the beginning or middle of a session) it is common for people to experience strong sensations as they encounter blockages or resistance in their bodies. A tingling sensation in the arms and legs is very common as is temperature fluctuation throughout the body. The Breathwork Therapist will be watching carefully and may offer you hot or cold or may help you to adjust so that your process of breathing underneath the blockage is uninterrupted.
Towards the middle to end of the session, you may experience a total lightness of being and a sense of profound relaxation. During the course of the latter, it is not uncommon for one to experience a sort of time warp, wherein ninety minutes feels akin to thirty seconds. Many people experience vivid memories, have reflections of past events (they had completely repressed or forgotten), or have past emotional wounds come up for release. Towards the end of a session, many people experience receiving answers or solutions to problems they’ve been experiencing, and some even people report feeling visited by loved ones who have since passed or seeing or hearing their Spiritual Connection bringing them clear guidance. The ultimate submersion in the Breathwork experience leads to a feeling as if the breath is breathing you, rather than you breathing the breath.
