Active Breath is an innovative somatic practice focused on integrating our awareness of the intrinsic connection between body, mind, and emotions through our physical/sensory experience of our breath, voice, and movement.

It is a practical approach for cultivating and deepening your embodiment skills, building resilience, and developing conscious attention in your daily lived experience.

What People Are Saying:

“The active breath brings me more clarity of mind.  It shows me that for real transformation I can trust my body intelligence. I experience that the feeling and embodied state bring me more details and holistic information, it puts things together!”

Lien Bossuyt ~ neurodiverse educator for children

“I definitely notice a consistent buoyancy and vitality that comes from doing a session with you.  My voice feels effortless and the breath feels like it is organically integrated throughout my body, as opposed to the mechanical approach that often comes with formal vocal training.”

Julia Jamison ~ theater and voice professor

“I experience how the Active Breath connection with my voice and the knowledge of the function of the body systems influences my awareness and feeling of well-being. It becomes a process,  an alive, defined experience – this lets me feel more present, more resting, more “rich”.”

Amanda XueHai ~ Pilates & Yoga Teacher
