Conscious breathing has a long history, with roots in Taoist, Vedic & Yogic models of health and spirituality. Transformational Breath® is a therapeutic breathwork training system, developed by Judith Kravitz over four decades and awarded Best Complementary Medicine Organisation by the Institute Complementary & Natural Medicine. In essence it is an open-mouthed breathing technique, without pauses, which is safe and beneficial for everyone. We can all improve the depth and flow of our breath, taking in more oxygen, essential for healthy cellular regeneration.
If you're familiar with Wim Hof, Leonard Orr (Rebirthing) or Dr. Stanislav Grof (Holotropic breathwork) you'll be interested to know that Transformational Breath® has expanded beyond these modalities, integrating various principles from Kundalini Yoga, breath analysis, sound healing, acupressure, alongside spiritual principles accessible to all. The Transformational Breath® Foundation have seen a marked increase of interest in their work as breathwork increasingly captures the imagination of the scientific and medical community. TBF are a leading training provider for doctors/healthcare professionals and is endorsed by leaders in integrative medicine including Deepak Chopra MD and Christiane Northrup MD. With the body of scientific literature growing year on year, it's an exciting time to be in the field.
You can experience Transformational Breath® at your convenience and in the comfort of your own home with me as your guide via Zoom. After a few sessions you'll be able to do it independently, developing an effective daily practice if that is your aim. You can also choose to combine your Transformational Breath® session with personal coaching, to supercharge your growth.
Whenever you make time and space for yourself you feel the benefit, whether that's calming, grounding or just having a moment to think. Transformational Breath® can also deliver a range of physical and mental benefits:

PREGNANCY, BABIES & CHILDREN
Transformational Breath® is a wonderful tool for women in labour, similar to the grounding and comforting techniques taught in Hypnobirthing. Booking a few sessions prior to your due date gives you an opportunity to release some of the anxiety you might have about giving birth and get used to the breathing pattern that will help you feel calmer and more empowered during contractions.
An adapted form of Transformational Breath® can also be given to babies to clear birth trauma. Even the smoothest of births can be experienced as traumatic to newborns, as they transition from the darkness of the womb to bright light or have their cord cut before they’re fully ready to take their first breath. Trauma is stored in the body but can easily, gently be released by breathing together with baby whilst holding acupressure points on baby's tummy. It is always such a joy to teach parents how they can practice Transformational Breath® with their little ones independently at home, to support the recovery of Mum and baby, and promote bonding and relaxation.
Familiarising children with Transformational Breath® is a fantastic way to build awareness of their breath, emotions and how the two are connected. You are never too young to learn how to tune in to feelings, accept and release them in a safe and healthy way. Tailoring Transformational Breath® sessions to the child's age and stage, using play to hold their attention, is an effective way to instil the basic principles. A session is also an opportunity for a child to 'just be', free from the pressures of family life and school, with no need to achieve any particular outcome. Some rejuvenating downtime away from hectic schedules and screens.
Please note - Due to Cov-19 only Zoom sessions are available. My work with children is 1-to-1 in-person and therefore will resume in due course. Get in touch to register your interest and I will contact you when I am able to safely meet your child once again.
