3 / Tips for the Breathwork Session 

Find yourself a quiet space where you can relax during our time together. Set up your space in a way that helps you feel safe and at ease. Wear comfy clothes as you will be invited to lie flat on your back down during the breathwork portion. Breathwork is best done laying down and you do not need to force yourself if that doesn't feel right. Lying on your bed, a couch, or a yoga mat on the floor all work well. Ideally you'd have no pillow under your head, but do whatever you need for your body to feel at ease. Have a blanket nearby as you might get cold during the session. If you have any pain issues please find a position that will serve you best and is fully supported (in a recliner chair, resting against the wall, etc).

Download Zoom on your phone or computer ahead of time if you don't have it already. It's free and fairly easy to use.
