Conscious Connected Breathwork


Conscious Connected Breathwork, also known as holotropic or rebirthing serves as a potent tool for personal growth, healing, and self-discovery. An opportunity for individuals to cultivate a deeper connection with themselves and experience profound transformation on various levels. 

It is a breathing practice that involves intentionally connecting each inhale with the next exhale, creating a continuous, unbroken cycle of breath. As you breathe in this way, you begin to unravel layers of resistance and uncover hidden insights within yourself, gently guiding you towards greater clarity and understanding.

Key Elements of Conscious Connected Breathwork:

  • The primary characteristic is that there are no pauses between breaths. Each inhale seamlessly transitions into the exhale, and vice versa.

  • Practitioners maintain awareness of their breathing patterns and sensations throughout the practice, which can lead to heightened self-awareness and presence.

  • Deep, full breaths, engaging the diaphragm to maximize oxygen intake and carbon dioxide expulsion.


  • The practice can help release pent-up emotions and stress, providing emotional clarity and relief.

  • Many practitioners report increased mental clarity and a sense of mental calmness after sessions.

  • The rhythmic nature of breathing can induce deep physical relaxation.

  • Some people experience a sense of spiritual awakening or a deeper connection to themselves and the world around them.

How It’s Practiced:

  • Environment: Practiced in your home, or my studio in Northcliff, Hermanus. A space that offers safety and comfort, think of cocooning yourself in love. So blankets, pillows, and scents if that works for you. Phones off, and if you perceive any potential distractions, please kindly request them beforehand to wait until the session is complete. I like to incorporate music to enhance the experience of connecting to the rhythm of your breath. 

  • Duration: Sessions range between 45 minutes to two hours.

  • Online sessions are done with Zoom, and a strong uninterrupted internet connection is required.


  • Therapeutic Settings: Used in psychotherapy to help clients access and process emotions.

  • Personal Growth: Employed in workshops and retreats for personal development and self-discovery.

  • Stress Management: Practiced regularly as a tool for managing stress and anxiety.

Potential Risks and Considerations:

  • Intense Experiences: The practice can bring up intense emotions or physical sensations, so it’s important to have a qualified facilitator, especially for those new to the practice or with a history of trauma or mental health issues.

  • Contraindications: Not recommended for individuals with certain medical conditions, such as severe cardiovascular issues, without professional guidance.

Conscious Connected Breathwork sessions offer a holistic approach to healing, integrating the wisdom of mind and body. Through the power of your breath, you reclaim your innate ability to heal and thrive, paving the way for profound transformation and empowerment in all aspects of your life.

The Importance of Integration:

Integration is practised towards the end of the session, and profound realisations may present themselves to you. It is therefore beneficial to have a notebook handy after the session to write down or draw. 

Integration may continue over the following days, as the body and mind absorb the effects of the experience. Please be gentle with yourself, as discoveries may only present themselves to you, three days later for example.
