Conscious Connected Breathwork (CCB) is an experiential field of study and practice that uses a specialized breathing technique, body mapping (using pressure points to release stored tension and emotions) and affirmations. These three elements work together to support all levels of being: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. It is a safe, powerful, and gentle breathing practice that releases stress from the body.
This type of breathwork can be found under other names: Transformational breath, Holotropic breath, Rebirthing. Each technique has unique features, however there are 3 main components that connect them all:
Conscious connected breathing: the breath is continuous without pauses between the inhale and the exhale.
Diaphragmatic breathing: active inhale (into the belly with relaxed expansion of the chest) and a relaxed exhale (breathing out is a passive movement).
Breathing channel: breathe in and out through the same channel (the mouth)
Breathwork oxygenates the blood and increases feelings of alertness in the body. It decreases remuneration, brain fog, and energy blockages. The nature of the breath allows and encourages us to be completely present throughout the experience. By learning to breathe consciously, you may uncover and release limiting beliefs and thought patterns to create a more positive, pleasurable and authentic life.

FINDING FOOD FREEDOM
Living a life controlled by food is exhausting. The rules are always changing: eat this, don't eat that, eat at this time, don't eat at that time, eat less, eat more, carbs/no carbs, dairy/no dairy...
For most of my life, I relied heavily on 21 day programs, diets and restrictive eating patterns that were created by someone and else and were 'guaranteed' to fix me. It took me years to realize that 1) I wasn't broken and 2) food is fuel and fuel is necessary for progress.
Total health is the state of complete harmony of body, mind and spirit.
Finding Food Freedom is about learning to say goodbye to disordered eating so you can nourish yourself on and off the plate. I use an integrative approach to coaching that includes movement, breath and mindfulness tools to help you heal your relationship with food and yourself.
Each individual has unique needs, so I'll curate a program specifically for you so that you can begin to break free from old patterns that aren't serving you any longer.
Coaching works because we go beyond learning and understanding, to integrating and experiencing. Throughout our 12 sessions, you'll learn to trust your intuition around hunger and fullness. I'll support you as you say goodbye to feelings of shame and guilt around eating, so that you can move from restriction to freedom.
If you're ready to move from restriction to freedom, let's have a Chai Chat, your complimentary 60 min consultation, where we can discuss if working together is a good fit.
