Breathwork /  Pranayama

Breathing effectively IS the gateway to deep well-being and spiritual connection. Breath is the great equalizer, it is free, it transcends all boundaries, culture, political orientation, race, gender, religion, socio-economic group, and intelligence. 

"Before I explain more about the breathwork I teach lets me explain who this is for.".

I have no interest in Spirituality what so ever. How much Spirituality is there?

The breath exercises and techniques themselves are neutral. How you choose to interprut the experincial results from them is up to you.

I am really unfit and out of shape. Will that matter?

No. One of the beauties of this work is that it meets you where you are. There is no perquisite before starting. You can be a smoker too.

Only Breath

Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu
Buddhist, Sufi, or zen. Not any religion


or cultural system. I am not from the East
or the West, not out of the ocean or up


from the ground, not natural or ethereal, not
composed of elements at all. I do not exist,


am not an entity in this world or in the next,
did not descend from Adam and Eve or any


origin story. My place is placeless, a trace
of the traceless. Neither body or soul.


I belong to the beloved, have seen the two
worlds as one and that one call to and know,


first, last, outer, inner, only that
breath breathing human being.
