“Deep breaths are like little love notes to yourself”


Attentive and mindful breathing makes the difference between conscious and unconscious, playful and serious, free and convulsive, vital and exhausted. Breath immediately brings you into the moment, into the here and now.


When you start paying attention to your breathing, you will notice that there is often a different way of breathing for every mood. When you are afraid you hold your breath or when you are excited you breathe faster.


When you start breathing more consciously, there can be a shift and thus a change in the feelings and emotions you are in contact with at that moment. This allows you to be more present with what is happening within you. Being present in the moment also brings peace and relaxation.


During a breathing session I invite you to say 'yes' to yourself with the support of connected breathing, to say 'yes' to the experience, to your life and the life that you discover inside yourself during the breathing session. Every breath is again and again an encounter with yourself in the here and now.


A breathing session can have a restorative effect on both physical and emotional complaints. It can help you to:

  • Break negative beliefs
  • Express emotions, express yourself
  • Strengthen self-acceptance
  • Allow happy feelings
  • Enjoy life more
  • Become aware of anger
  • Handle fear
