Statement of Practice:
Breathing practices come in many forms and can be the most powerful means to experiencing presence, healing and transformation. Integrative Breathwork is a safe, potent and restorative process that works deeply and effectively to bring awareness to what needs expression, healing or transformation on physical, emotional and spiritual levels. Heather sees each person as their own greatest healer and recognizes that everything needed to support life and personal growth is inside each of us. With focused awareness on the breath, body, heart and mind through breathing, movement and meditation, clients are guided to deepen and expand their own natural breathing patterns and work directly with what arises each moment. Heather pays particular attention to the subtleties of what the breath reveals, through observation, attentive listening and collaboration. Working intimately with the breath invites free expression, release and integration of deep emotional or mental patterns, as well as ecstatic states of joy, love and gratitude. Studies are revealing that simple breathing techniques can restore balance in the body’s nervous system promoting well being, relaxation, restoration and enhanced relationships while reducing symptoms of anxiety, asthma, stress, trauma, drug addiction & addictive behavior, insomnia, overwhelm, TMJ, , , much more. Heather works with individuals and groups using various breathing practices to promote wellness, healing and vibrant living. She also leads retreat getaways several times a year.
