How can breathwork transform your life?
During a breathwork session, I will lead you through a deeper exploration of your body, energy and intuition through conscious circular breathing. This type of breathing unlocks an altered state of consciousness, which allows you to access the subconscious. This is where somatic healing and real change can take place. Some of the most common benefits of regularly practicing breathwork include...
- Clearing emotional blocks and stagnant energies stored deep within the body
- Releasing unresolved emotions and trauma
- Increasing circulation and oxygen levels through your body
- Activating different areas of the brain to create new neural pathways
- Developing a deeper sense of self-awareness and internal perception

Alexa led me through a powerful and deeply clearing breathwork session recently. She holds such a safe space in which I felt totally comfortable dropping into my body despite my unfamiliarity with active breathwork. I’ll definitely be doing more.
