Breathwork is a general term that can refer to many different kinds of breathing exercises. I work with two different breathwork approaches. One uses a 2-stage (or 3 depending on your perspective) pranayama breath. It is an active meditation which very effectively helps our busy minds let go. The breath itself oxygenates our body stimulating our hypothalamus gland connecting to the nervous system and endocrine system via the pituitary gland. Our blood becomes more alkaline, our body begins to relax and your awareness increases. The results and benefits are not only physical though. This healing modality creates space to release what we carry, clearing our head, supporting our physical systems, and encouraging mental, emotional and physical health. The second approach uses a biodynamic method that uses breath as the driver, offers physical touch and opening through self bodywork, uses your own intuitive movements, vocalization, and meditation. I use the concepts of pendulation and titration to move carefully and slowly, following what is best for each client individually. Getting used to using the breath takes time and willingness. This is not a magic "cure" but a tool that can be honed, deepened, and expanded to provide an extremely personal path for growth.
Benefits can include:
Every experience is different so there is no one way to answer this question. The best approach is to let go of expectations and surrender to the experience, and go in with a spirit of playfulness and curiosity. Each person and each session is unique but some people experience laughter, tears, or insights, they may get hot or cold, or have a variety of different body sensations. None of these or or all of these and more, are normal and safe.
Everyone can use some sort of breath safely yet some types of breathing may need to be avoided for safety. Reasons can include glaucoma, pregnancy, and severe conditions in the following areas: asthma, epilepsy (or history of seizures), high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, mental illness, and diabetes. Please contact me for more details or for questions.
Once you book a session I will send you the info you need to prepare your space for a virtual breathwork session. If you would like to sign up for coaching + breathwork sessions, just coaching, or you have any questions at all please book a call with me first. This will be free and will allow us to make sure we are the right fit for each other and provide space for questions and getting to know each other.
Tiffany’s soothing voice made it easy for me to go into a deeply relaxed mental state, even though I have a very chatty brain. It was invigorating and relaxing and in addition, some of the effects for me were powerful and unexpected. I treated a brain tumor with gamma radiation about 8 months ago. As a result of this treatment, I’ve been experiencing some twitching in my optic nerves and some dizziness. I got up after the first breath session (five days ago) and it took me about five minutes to realize that my vision and balance were completely normal. This lasted for almost an hour and while the symptoms returned, they were not as severe. After the second session my vision was normal for several hours. It is 8 hours past that session now and my symptoms are still dramatically improved. I did not do this work expecting any impact on my vision or balance. This was a complete (and welcome) surprise. I am grateful,

Tiffany’s approach to guiding breathwork is so grounding and supportive. She does an amazing job tapping into when I need to breathe deeper, release, or relax my body and I always feels safe and guided. I have loved all our 1:1 sessions and can’t wait to continue working with her both 1:1 and in groups. I always radiate so much self love after breathing with Tiffany!
Breathwork is a whole new world to me. Tiffany has taken me on a journey that I never knew existed. She is a natural guide, easy to open up to and has been my caring coach as well as my breathwork facilitator.
It may sound silly to need help breathing- but even during daily activities, I wasn’t breathing effectively, The skills Tiffany has taught me, help me every day. This has been the foundation for our breathwork sessions.
I never knew how important breathwork would be. To be honest, I was skeptical and didn’t expect much more than trying to take deep breaths and relax (which, as simple as it sounds, is still challenging for me). But during my first guided session with Tiffany, I experienced something unlike anything I’ve ever felt before-physical and beyond. My experience was completely surprising and caught me off guard. I am still amazed during and after each session.
This work has been a profound, refreshing, and positive change in my life.
There is no one I trust more, or would rather be on this journey with than Tiffany. She is skilled in her practice, caring, sincere, and patient. She and her work are a blessing in my life.
