Breathwork is an active meditation technique based on breathing. A breathing session has the power to change your state of consciousness so that you can explore your emotions of today, yesterday, thirty years ago, or even those of your lineage and the collective society in which we function and interact.

Emotions that have been unconsciously suppressed, unheard and crystallised disrupt your brain in a dysfunctional way, with negative consequences for your daily life. Untangling these blind spots through Breathwork sessions allows you to release these emotions and internal blockages so that you can finally move on and build a better life.

Where does Breathwork come from?

Breathing goes back a long way before us to China and India. It has also been used in Japan and Tibet for centuries. Since then, these practices have been refined and “modernised” to adapt to today’s society.

The physical, emotional, psychological and even spiritual benefits have been well established and studied, and continue to be today.

What are some of the techniques?

Breathing techniques can vary from “Breath of fire” to “Box Breathing” to “4-7-8 Breathing”, “Holotropic Breathwork”, Rebirthing Breathwork”, “Alchemical Breathwork”.

To determine which technique would be most beneficial to you, you first need to know what your objective is or what problem you might be having trouble with.

There’s a particular technique that we focus on and teach in our training courses. The technique is called Circular Breathing or Conscious Connected Breathing, Rebirthing. The reason we focus on this technique is that it delivers significant results in a very short time. From the very first session, the results are immediate and undeniable. One of the things we love about circular breathing/connected conscious breathing is that often – the more sceptical or resistant you are, the greater the experience. Don’t just take our word for it, do it and find out for yourself.

The results are different for everyone and you’ll have a different experience almost every time (which also makes it very difficult to explain). So let’s focus on the results. The most common feedback we hear from participants after a session is; “It was like 20 years of therapy without having to say a word!”

Here’s a non-exhaustive list: relief from stress, anxiety, depression and emotional healing, from physical performance to rapidly disappearing physical health problems.

Breathwork is booming and Google search has seen the biggest growth in the last 5 years.

“Breathwork works miracles and the world needs it.”

Did you know that something as simple as breathing can help you access altered states of consciousness and be your personal ally? In fact, breathing allows you to address the root cause that is preventing the people you are accompanying from achieving powerful transformations.

As you know, many people are caught up in mental tales and have difficulty structuring or even channelling their thoughts. By using Breathwork in a specific way, you can IMMEDIATELY calm your thoughts and access the emotions that fuel this mental chatter. In this emotional state, it’s much easier to get to the root cause of blockages and, thereby, deal with them. In other words, instead of just treating symptoms (by working exclusively with the conscious mind), breathing touches the subconscious and uncovers unconscious blockages.

Discover how breathing provides the release equivalent to 10 years of emotional build-up in just one or a few sessions.

Discover why recent scientific studies have proven that the conscious mind occupies only 5% of our potential and that the other 95% is hidden in the shadows of our subconscious, our body and our unconscious.

Breathwork is an extremely powerful tool that uses the breath. It is unlimited and accessible to everyone in the world. By experiencing the power of the breath, we instantly feel a sense of inner well-being. May it become your tool for transformation and personal awareness, for yourself, for the people you accompany, for our children, for the adults of tomorrow.

"Why doesn't everyone know about Breathwork?"

“During my first session, I asked myself exactly the same question. “

Why isn’t this tool taught in schools, care centres and companies?

From that day on, I knew that one day I would work towards this goal.

My personal and professional experiences, along my 15 years of training in HR and adult training as well as my personal development path of over 10 years, have led me to advocate for the power of Breathwork in Switzerland.
