I’m happy to announce that I am now offering in person and online Breathwork Facilitation for stress and somatic release. Sometimes called pranayama breathwork, sometimes sacred breathwork, the process is an active meditation that creates the opportunity for powerful healing to occur. This ancient eastern breathing technique allows the conscious mind to relax enabling access to the subconscious mind. Trained by David Elliott, I facilitate breathwork workshops that help to reduce stress, clear the mind and release pain and trauma.

The process itself is a three part breath, through the mouth, lying down. The concentrated breathing helps to bypass the mind to reduce distraction and allow the body to release. Focus on the breath removes the stranglehold of the conscious mind. The increased oxygen alkalizes the body by reducing the acidity in the blood. As the oxygen reaches the brain, it stimulates the hypothalamus gland causing it to release endorphins, which in turn activate the other ductless glands in the body. The brain begins to relax and emotions open and move more freely when the endorphins are flowing. Sessions last 1 and 1/2 hours.

 The breathwork creates vibration and expansion in the body, which is complemented by the healing of the sound bath.  Experience the opportunity for relaxation, destressing and, even possibly, transformation.

“Dana you offered a really remarkable breathwork session.  I felt results for days and days after the session.”-Joan from State College
