I had a good life before I discovered the breath— or at least, I thought I did. I had a good relationship, a son I adored, a comfortable lifestyle.
But underneath that, I lived in fear of judgement. I was terrified of public speaking and couldn’t sleep the night before a presentation. I was constantly striving for achievement and improvement. I was never “good enough.”
Now? It might sound strange, but changing the way I breathed changed the way I lived.
I became more confident and accepting. I stopped “doing” and started “being.” I no longer “go after my goals,” they come to me. The things I want and expect in life simply happen— like the world has opened up for me and everything just flows. I’ve dropped the struggle and the striving, now live every day with joy, gratitude and a sense of adventure.
Breathwork also helped me stay afloat when my great life hit a rough patch. I was able to get through my separation and come out on the other side stronger, happier and more resilient. Today, my ex-husband is one of my good friends. We support and care for each other in amazing ways and are raising our son as partners.
Above all, breathwork helped me find my true purpose: connecting with people and helping them connect to themselves, to others and to life.
