Breathwork Informed Consent:

Breathwork refers to any type of breathing exercise or technique in which a person intentionally changes their breathing pattern. There are many forms of breathwork therapy that involve breathing in a conscious and systematic way, often performed to improve mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. Breathing itself can last for anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes depending on the participants individual journey and what the facilitator deems appropriate for the session.


The participant is simply asked to remain open to whatever kind of experiences present themselves during the breathwork session. This can include, but is not limited to, deeply restful or ecstatic states, vivid reliving of past experiences, release of energy from the body, tetany of the hands, feet, legs or face, strong tingling sensations, strong emotions (either pleasant or difficult), spiritual experiences or experiences from other transpersonal areas of consciousness.


The facilitator’s role during the session is to oversee the breathing cycle and ensure it is maintained, as well as perform direct and non-direct forms of bodywork.


Breathwork is a powerful experiential tool for accessing altered states of consciousness. As this process can bring up intense emotions and strong physical sensations in some, it is not recommended for those with certain types of conditions including: head injuries, heart conditions, severe hypertension, glaucoma, epilepsy, pregnancy, recent surgery, serious mental health conditions, or other physical limitations. If you have any doubt about whether you should participate, consult your physician or therapist, as well as your facilitator before attending.


Breathwork may activate a heightened emotional state which can continue beyond the time of the breathwork session, for which post session therapy and support is recommended. Breathwork is intended as a personal growth experience and should not be looked upon as a substitute for psychotherapy.


For the safety of the participants, the facilitator reserve the right to discontinue services based on contraindications including, but not limited to, those listed above.
