Breathwork

Clarity Breathwork is a method of self-healing that uses the power of deep, connected breathing along with gentle somatic coaching. Breathwork can be intensely powerful, yet generally is very safe. Breathwork helps reveal and clear unconscious thoughts and beliefs that can often get in the way of our deepest happiness.  Sometimes emotions arise, sometimes memories or visions, and sometimes just pure spacious blissfulness as we replace old limiting beliefs with unconditional love.

When your old limiting thought patterns are released, you can:

  • Build and deepen a loving relationship with yourself
  • Reduce anxiety and stress
  • Feel more creative flow
  • Allow more joy to surface in your daily life.

Because each breath we take is our connection to all of Life, practicing conscious Breathwork can also facilitate a feeling of interbeingness with this precious Earth, and all of the beings with whom we co-exist.

Breathwork affects our emotional, mental and spiritual bodies, as well as being de-toxifying and healing for our physical bodies. Breathwork allows us to:

  • Breathe better
  • Have more energy
  • Heal certain physical ailments

 Offered privately as a committed series of 10 sessions.

If you are yearning for a deeper sense of vibrant aliveness and well being, with deeper presence and intimacy in relating with yourself, others and the natural world, you can experience fulfillment! In the Earth and Body Breathwork Program we will share 3-6 months together on a journey through one-on-one transformative breathwork sessions with intuitive somatic guidance.

I am offering private breathwork sessions through Zoom. When it’s possible to meet in person, you choose to meet either at your home or in a studio space that I rent.

Private sessions normally last about 2 hours each. The first session tends to take about 2.5 – 3 hours, as we take time for an in-depth interview starting back at birth and childhood upbringing.  Every session involves sharing, intuitive counseling and somatic coaching, as well as approximately one hour of circular, connected breathing. Ideally, sessions take place every week or every other week when possible. Although they can be spaced farther apart, commitment to complete at least 10 sessions over a 3 to 6-month period brings the richest results.

Recent Breathwork Client Testimonials:

I started working with Devi because I was looking to better connect with my body, feelings, and emotions. As we worked together, I was able to make huge progress connecting to my body and my spirit. My sessions far surpassed anything I would have hoped for. It was like 3 years of regular therapy. And now my life is much better because I can check in with my body more easily. I am able to connect with my spirit and I feel much more in touch with myself and the world around me.

I have found Devi to be the most compassionate and caring guide and mentor. It is often hard for men to open up to this kind of work. Devi, through her professional and supportive nature, helped me to open myself and obtain full advantage of this work. She is thoughtful, perceptive, and insightful in every aspect of her work with me. I have advanced my growth with her more than any psychologist I have worked with. I look forward to continuing our work together. ~Ron Indra, Santa Cruz

“I have done 6 private breath work sessions with Devi and have 4 more lined up and can say that breath work has allowed me to go deeper within myself than any therapy session or any other work I’ve done before. Breathing is life and is something all beings share, so when you remember that and connect to the amazing source that it is, it is an amazingly powerful experience. Devi is a wonderful human being, who takes the time to get to know you in a very thoughtful and gentle way. I highly recommend Devi and her work.”

~ Beatriz Ehrenfried, Santa Cruz CA.

Group Breathwork is another powerful way to move energy and unravel stuck places. Group breathing sessions are a good way to be introduced to breathwork, and also a good support to clients during ongoing private sessions or after completing a committed series of sessions. Although it is not recommended that group breathwork sessions take the place of private sessions, sharing sacred space created by a group of people breathing with intention can be very enlivening!  We breathe with the intention that our practice is for the benefit of all beings, including Mother Earth.

While private sessions may allow for more intimate coaching with personal issues and reaching goals for unblocking “stuck” places, the collective group energy supports each individual’s transformative journey and offers insights into the spectrum of human experience.  Group breathwork sharing also helps to build community and compassion.  We will usually begin with some movement, meditation and sharing before we breathe, and have some time for sharing after the breathing as well.

Testimonials from Group Breathwork Sessions:

 “I was very impressed with Devi’s breadth of experience, her sensitive guidance, & her expertise in this area.  I benefited from the emphasis placed on sharing in the group Breathwork Circle & the powerful bonding that resulted from that.  The breathwork itself helped me discover something buried in my heart. I was surprised at seeing it, and happy it was ready to be released!”  

~Stephen Gonzales, Santa Cruz CA.

Everything was exactly as I needed: my resistance, my allowing myself to be present and finally surrender.  You led us with grace and strength.  I am deeply grateful for you providing this service. It was such a sweet blessing on how you held a container for me, reminding me with your touch to breathe and let go.  Your words and guidance led me out of my resistance.

I see how each part of the workshop, the dance, movement and discussion set me up to flow magically through my breathwork journey. Each exercise flowed into the next to help me release something deep inside of me. Thank you.  ~Cherie Hung, Pacifica

“Devi’s breath and movement workshop was potent and very healing for me. I appreciated the facilitation and her sensitivity towards honoring my needs and letting me be in my process. The container Devi created and the sangha piece really was powerful. I also thought it was a stellar playlist.”  ~ Ari Moshe Wolfe, Santa Cruz CA.
