What is Breathwork?
Breathwork is an active breathing method accompanied by special music, oils, sounds, and coaching that can help you:
Reprogram limiting beliefs and patterns that keep you stuck.
Process and release strong emotions like grief, fear, guilt, or anger.
Improve energy levels
Relieve stress, anxiety, and depression.
Connect with the inner wisdom of your higher self.
Deepen your spiritual connection.
This modality helps everyone--including those with PTSD, addiction, anxiety, and other barriers to being emotionally, psychologically, and physically well. We offer both group and private sessions for individuals, couples, and families in our studio, your home, or at OMG!Yoga.
What people are saying about breathwork...
“An overwhelming feeling of self-love and self-acceptance came over me. In my 46 years, I’ve been running from my own body, my own being. Now I feel completely at ease.” AM, Rockford
"I can’t recommend Michele and the work she is doing enough. If you’ve never experienced breathwork - I can assure you that she creates a safe and welcoming space for everyone. Consider this an act of self care like no other." JR, Rockford
“It has made my husband and I come together more deeply on our journey. I was skeptical that just breathing together would do anything, but I felt such a strong feeling of connection and love—both during and since!” VK, Rockford.

More about breathwork...
The breathing style utilizes active pranayama rhythmic 2-part breath as a catalyst to excavate blocked energy and unprocessed emotions from the body's nervous system, bypassing the analytical brain to efficiently restore a healthy state of balance, creativity, joy, hope, inspiration and abundance! An all-encompassing recharge of body, mind and spirit, this practice is a profoundly effective method for letting go of all that hinders your journey.
Every session is unique as the facilitators use their intuition and spirit to guide them in the healing practice that is best suited for that person or group--and that moment. The facilitators might break out their rattles, drums, rocks, guitars, singing bowls, or gongs. They may also use the power of touch, singing, and chanting depending on how the spirit moves them.
Our training is through David Elliot, Master Healer who has practiced this modality for over 30 years. We are aware of the different types of breathwork (holotropic, biodynamic, neurodynamic, etc), but we choose to keep this uncomplicated and allow the breath to do its work.
Note: We advise no alcohol/drugs 24 hours prior to breathwork, and we generally advise healing elements for aftercare like: herbal teas, epsom salt baths, journaling, listening to beautiful music, drinking water, cuddling, aromatherapy, reading positive text (poetry, scripture, etc.) sitting by a fire, napping, high vibration snacks, and walking in nature.
