[full of breath; living]



In daily life we often breathe unconsciously and limited which manifests itself in physical or mental complaints. By breathing consciously, deeply and fully, we can bring things that got stuck in our body back into motion and let our life energy flow more and more. It takes courage and perseverance to consciously breathe through everything that presents itself in a breathing session.



A first breathing session takes about 1.5 to 2 hours. (Follow-up sessions about 1 to 1.5 hour.) After an intake in which I will ask about your (daily) life and what needs your attention at the moment and a short warming-up, you will be breathing actively for half an hour. During this transforming breathing technique the pauses between inhalation and exhalation are removed. This active breathing will be followed by 10 to 15 minutes of relaxation in which integration takes place. 

The breathing session works on three conscious levels: physical, mental/emotional and spiritual. You can experience different things while breathing. Thoughts and emotions can arise, cramps can occur, you can experience physical sensations, and sometimes little seems to be happening. All of these things are old and stored in the body and come to the surface through this way of breathing. 

During the active breathing, I support you in a way that your body / system can open more. I do this by guiding you with my voice, touch, or I will ask you to move for example. Afterwards there is space to share about your experience.

Interested in a session? Send an email to mail[@] or send a message (Signal or WhatsApp) to 06 41 88 22 40!

If you suffer from epilepsy, glaucoma, heart problems, psychological problems now or in the past or if you are pregnant, I cannot (yet) guide you.



The breathing sessions are in Amsterdam Noord and are at a reduced price of 25,- until November. I will, however,  ask you to share something about the experience a few days after the session! (From November on 75,- will be charged.) It is recommend to not eat too much prior to a session, to wear comfortable and warm clothes (without buttons and zippers), preferably a long pants, socks and a t-shirt or a jumper / sweater. Please bring a (hand) towel to lie on.
