"Are you breathing just a little and calling it a life?" - Mary Oliver

As the only function of the Autonomic Nervous System that can be consciously controlled, the breath is one of the most powerful tools available to support emotional, psychological, and physical well-being.

Without conscious awareness and management, the breath naturally responds to one’s experience in the world. In states of fear, overwhelm, anxiety, depression, and stress, we hold and restrict the breath. When we feel safe, connected, and relaxed, the breath is deep and free flowing, and the body relaxed. Over a lifetime of stress, trauma, heartbreak, and emotional overwhelm (and resulting disassociation), most adults have developed patterns of tension that lock energy in the body. The result is experiences of anxiety, confusion, exhaustion, self-doubt, depression, insomnia, and a myriad of physical ailments.

By engaging a conscious, active breathing practice, we can begin to unwind these deeply held patterns and liberate our life force energy. In doing so, we reconnect to our innate vitality, clarity, creativity, presence, and capacity to meet the experiences of life with greater peace, ease, and empowerment.

Beyond its powerful influence on emotional, psychological, and physical well-being, conscious breathwork can take one beyond identification with the mind/ego, into the essential ground of being. This type of direct, “spiritual” experience can totally shift one’s orientation to life, and to the nature of reality itself.



The benefits of conscious breathwork are many and profound, including:

  • Increased physical energy and vitality, along with greater relaxation and sense of anchored presence

  • Somatic healing and integration; liberating tension patterns held in the body as a result of chronic and acute stress, trauma, overwhelm, loss, etc.

  • Increased resiliency; greater capacity to RESPOND to life with conscious choice, instead of reacting unconsciously

  • Improved immune function; lowered blood pressure; hormonal balance; reduced inflammatory states in the body; optimized oxygenation, cell function, and pH balance; improved sleep

  • Greater mental clarity, creativity, and inspiration; heightened inspiration and productivity in work and personal endeavors

  • Release of self-limiting thought forms and beliefs; shifting from being a victim of life to empowered as a creative agent

  • Greater capacity to experience joy, spontaneity, pleasure and play

  • Heightened awareness and ability to see the bigger picture of your life and relationships

  • Greater sense of connection to Source/Nature/God; transpersonal and mystical experiences that open the doors of perception and connection to that which transcends one’s limited sense of “self”


ATTEND A GROUP CEREMONY:  Group sessions offer a potent, amplified field that enable deep shifts and healing to occur. Standard ceremonies are 2-3 hours that begin with an introduction to the work, followed by a 90-minute breathwork journey. Recorded music ­– along with live shamanic drumming, chanting, and rattling – support the process. Groups are typically 12-18 people, and you will receive individual support from Tai (and assistants) throughout the experience. More information about what to expect in a group breathwork session is available HERE, along with information on preparation and follow-up self care, etc.

SCHEDULE A PRIVATE OR COUPLES SESSION: A single private session can be life changing, and a series of private sessions can help release the deepest layers of holding in the body. With the steady presence of a facilitator, clients often feel more safe and supported going into a deep process, and together, we follow the wisdom of your breath and body to welcome profound healing and remembering.  

First Session (2hrs) - $180

Follow-up Series (3 sessions, 1.5hrs each) - $500

Couples Healing Ceremony (2hrs) - $300

BOOK A PRIVATE GROUP CEREMONY OR BREATHWORK TRAINING: I offer small group facilitation and trainings to corporate leadership teams, as well as custom ceremonies for families, couples, spiritual groups, women and men’s groups, yoga teacher training programs, etc. Group breathwork sessions offer an incredible opportunity to heal and transform relational dynamics, and deepen bonds and connections.


While active breathwork is of value to anyone interested in healing, personal growth and self-realization, it's best suited for those who have some background in therapeutic and/or spiritual work, as this supports one's capacity to remain in a state of witnessing awareness while the body processes old energetic holdings.

As it can be physically and emotionally demanding, it is contraindicated for those who are pregnant, have severe hypertension or cardiovascular disease, epilepsy, bipolar disorders or schizophrenia, or recent major surgeries and/or communicable diseases. 

If any of these apply to you, or if you have experienced significant trauma (or simply have questions about whether breathwork can support your desired intentions), please contact Tai for a consultation before registering for a session.

My experience was miraculous. I felt an incredible flow of energy, especially around an old injury. Since the ceremony, all the pain is gone and I’m having a hard time believing it. GONE! I am so grateful.

If I could describe last night’s breathwork event in one word, it would be ‘Sensational!’

Thank you so much for providing a safe sanctuary for us to practice healing and well being. I feel empowered and confident after practicing my breathwork like that for the first time, and that is all thanks to you.
— Lisa L.
The experience was powerfully loving in a way I cannot put into words. It literally brought me to tears to receive the breath so fully.
— Christa G.
Tai’s presence is calming and comfortable. Something about her just makes you feel like you are in good hands and I felt completely safe with her. The breathwork experience was everything she said it was going to be. Intense. Beautiful. Balancing. She is the real deal. Words can’t describe, but her gifts are special and my experience was profound.
— Julie H.
Tai is masterful at bringing people into space and holding a safe container for deep work.
— Brittany R.
It was a life changing experience.
— Matt M.
This energetic connection flowed into my fingertips throughout my body, my heart, and then back out to the universe. My eyes were closed, but I could see my fingers and the energy like tesla, Love, LOVE, for and from all - shared with all - intense ecstatic love was connecting me to all that I knew, and all that I did not. Understanding wasn’t important, familiarity wasn’t important, for I was a vessel of love connected to all! This lasted an eternity - one of the most intense and amazing eternities of my life.
— Jim F.
What an absolute joy to meet you and participate in the Breathwork Ceremony! It was really a wonderful experience. Your abundant generosity and integrity set such a beautiful container for our time. My friends, all new to breathwork, really enjoyed it and were surprised by the benefits! We all wanted to say thanks for the amazing soundtrack - it provided such a great background and flow. Thanks so much!!!
