What is Breathwork?

The experience of the connected breath - with open mouth, without pause after the inhale and exhale - is strongly connected with our own life journey which might be coloured by intense and most beautiful experiences in our lives. But especially by those which we can’t or don’t want to remember. The core protection mechanism of our innermost being allows traumatic events to vanish from our consciousness.

These can be experiences of our birth, of a passionately lived life, through to experiences of the precious now-moment. Mostly those experiences are repeated unconsciously: masked with a different “costume” in daily situations and personal behaviour. In this manner our behaviour patterns are created: driven by our conditioned mind and by repeating events (being betrayed, left alone, hurt, abandoned, .....) Especially those habits and patterns which do not conform with our deepest inner wisdom. 

Unconsciously and consciously experienced trauma wants to be fully integrated. With the dynamic circular breath - called Breathwork - an entrance to deep layers of our consciousness are able to be accessed. With every deep breath in the rhythmic Breathwork we are able to re-feel, re-sense these experiences. Breathwork makes it possible to return to unconscious trauma material, without pushing you into acting out the drama, But rather it allows you to slowly understand your role and others in a particular situation.

How can you create your life with happiness and abundance

Maybe you already have some daily rituals to take care of your wellbeing: you’re nourishing yourself with wonderful food, having recovery and rest periods during busy times and through body movements you know how to nuture yourself.  

With Breathwork you have a natural, direct and simple tool to change and understand “frozen” situations you’re in and help clear confusion, negative thought spirals and interpretations. Breathwork helps to establish and provide understanding from a deeper state of wisdom and to fully integrate and free you from these situations 

"Find clarity and
live your life in

One Breathwork session takes about 2 hours

  • we start with a conversation and intention setting

  • followed by the act of breathing for one hour

  • we conclude with an integration period

Breathwork is not solution orientated.
It is a process-orientated, complementary therapeutic method.

That is why it is highly recommended to engage with a cycle of 5 to 10 or more breathwork sessions. Experiences in the Breathwork field throughout decades show that a cycle of 10 breathwork sessions feels both to the client and the therapist as a completion. 

In the cycle of 10 breath sessions it is possible to breathe in cold or warm water, either in a private pool, a bath, in a calm sea or lake, or a waterfall pool. 

First session (2h) for 110€
Single session (2h) for 130€
The single session (2h) in a Breathwork cycle of 10 (or more) for 110€

Breathwork via Skype is also a possibility.
