What Is Breathwork? (Or rather, what kind of breathwork am I offering?)
There are many types of breathwork. The style of breathwork I facilitate is an alternative therapeutic technique called Revelation Breathwork©. It helps people into a shifted state of consciousness to allow repressed thoughts and emotions to surface for processing and integrating.
It’s 30-50 minutes of an intentional rhythmic breathing pattern, quicker than a normal, resting breath speed. (The active breathing portion depends on whether the session is group or 1:1 - group sessions last 30 minutes, 1:1 sessions last 50 minutes.) The breathwork experience is set to a curated contemporary playlist to provide a suggested breathing pace as well as an aide to help transition the mind more seamlessly into its shifted state.
At the very least, by the end of the session, most people experience deep peace, well-being, and clarity. But many people experience so much more from a regular breathwork practice.

What will the session look like?
Before the session, I’ll have you watch a 12-minute video to prepare for the session which will give you more information about what to expect.
You’ll need a place to lay down flat (can be a bed, yoga mat, or carpet), internet access to join via Zoom, a blanket, and a pillow. You’ll want quiet and privacy – and you’ll want anyone close by to know that if you might scream or cry during your session.
At the beginning, we’ll talk through any questions, get acquainted, and for me to get a general idea of what’s coming up for you (what you’d like to release).
You’ll get settled and ready to breathe with the camera set up so I can at least see your torso and whatever might be coming up for you physically during the session.
I’ll play a curated playlist while you breathe for about 45 minutes and guide you throughout the session. The last ~10 minutes will be resting and integrating whatever came up for you in your breathwork session.
To wrap up, we’ll chat a bit about what came up for you and how the session felt.
Our breathwork will be online via Zoom. I can also do in-person sessions in the Sandpoint, ID area - send me an email to discuss this option more.
