Neurodynamic Breathwork Online was created to make the transformative power of Breathwork accessible to everyone, everywhere.
We are excited for you to experience our live Breathwork Online sessions with our growing global community of people who are regularly practicing Breathwork to rewire old scripts embedded in our brain which keep us from becoming our best possible self.
Neurodynamic Breathwork uses carefully curated music to bring you on powerful journeys into profound states of awareness using only sound and breath. You will join people from around the world in experiencing this growing live, virtual Breathwork modality in an optimal balance of privacy and community.
Live online group Breathwork sessions take place throughout the week so you can attend when you desire. Whether you are at your home or have a room (maybe even in nature!), alone or with a partner, all you need is a phone or computer with internet connection and some good speakers or headphones.

Are you ready to stop feeling stuck
and create change in your life?
Here are just a few of the ways you may benefit from our live online Breathwork sessions...
Release lingering pent-up emotions, deep bodily tensions, traumatic memories, and free yourself from conditioning & old mental scripts. This opens up space for new possibilities and more healthy & effective ways of living to emerge.
Deepen your connection to yourself and your inner wisdom. This will in turn deepen the quality of your relationships, and open you to a more meaningful interconnectivity with life and the universe around you.
Our live, virtual Neurodynamic Breathwork Online sessions last for approximately 100 minutes, and are hosted using Zoom conferencing software. We start by giving a short introductory talk, followed by a 55-minute breathwork session listening to powerful, evocative music. This deep fast breathing, while being bathed in the sound of carefully chosen music, allows you to quiet the thinking mind and access your amazing inner intelligence. After the session, there will be time for some of the participants to share their Breathwork experience with the group.
Breathwork creates both a physiological and psychological impact on the brain. Physiologically, it causes loss of CO2. When the body compensates, the process of CO2 creation lowers blood acidity so you blood becomes more alkaline.
The lower CO2 results in decreased O2/Blood flow to some parts of the brain including parts of the Frontal Cortex which is a part of the Default Mode Network (DMN). The DMN plays a role in the creation of mental constructs, the most important of which is the Self, or Ego. When activity in the DMN falls off significantly, the ego mind can temporarily vanish.
The DMN also normallyh exerts inhibitory influence on other parts of the brain including the limbic regions that involve emotion and memory. When the DMN is suppressed, there is more activity in these regions which allows emotions and memories, including childhood traumas, to float from the unconscious to the surface of awareness so they can be worked on, processed and released.
In addition, during Breathwork, participants are instructed to give themselves permission to release. This has a powerful impact on the psyche and can result in an experience starting for a participant even before the breathing starts.
If you are a first time participant, you are required to read a PDF file entitled “Preparatory Information For First Time Participants“.
When the time for the session approaches, you will need to set up your space. You will be able to do the session either sitting in a comfortable chair or laying down. If you are lying down, please make sure to have enough space around you so that if you move around you will not bang into anything, especially around your head area.
Speakers or headphones will work for your session. You’ll want the music volume to be high enough to make you feel that you are being bathed in the sound but not so loud that it distorts. The better the internet connection, the better the sound quality of the music will be. A hardwired ethernet connection is ideal but a Wi-Fi system with good reception will also work. Cell phones without Wi-Fi connection will sometimes not work due to poor receptivity. Cell phones with Wi-Fi will work but sound quality without earphones or ear buds is generally unacceptable.
Make sure you will not be disturbed during the session, so turn off your phone and put a “do not disturb” sign on your door if there are other people in your home.
You might want a blindfold or you can just close your eyes if you prefer. If you continue with this work, the blindfold I recommend is called a Mindfold Sleep and Relaxation Mask (available on Amazon) but any blindfold will do.
Having Kleenex tissues, a bottle of water, and a cup nearby in case you feel like you have to spit, are also recommended.
It is ideal to do breathwork when your stomach is not too full. It is suggested to not eat anything at least 60 minutes before your session if possible, or, if you do, to just eat something very light.
Finally, although it is not required, you are more than welcome to have a friend in the room to hold space for you. It can be a wonderful connection-deepening shared experience.
