BREATHE WELL + BE WELL
Change your breath, change your life.
It's no secret that movement and nutrition are key elements to any comprehensive wellness program, but did you know that the way you breathe impacts every system and function in your body? Establishing functional breathing patterns is just as important to your overall mental, physical and emotional health and wellness as moving often or eating well. Breathwork is a reliable, effective, accessible way to adjust your internal state within minutes!
Breathe the change you want to feel!
ABOUT THE BREATH MOVEMENT
Move well. Breathe well. Be well.
The Breath Movement is focused on optimal health and wellness - in body, mind and spirit - and we believe that it all begins with the breath. Breathing is an essential function of life - in fact, it is the very essence of life. And since we take over 20,000 breaths each day, it makes sense that we should learn how to best utilize one of the few functions we do every single moment of our lives.
Breathwork is simply breathing practiced with intention. When we breathe in specific ways, we can dynamically engage with our autonomic nervous system and use it as a catalyst for change. Within minutes, we can cultivate energy, or find calm; we can get grounded, or prepare the body for rest. We can use breathwork to reduce stress and anxiety or to optimize athletic performance. These benefits and many more can be experienced quickly and over longer periods of time with regular, consistent practice. Ultimately, breathwork is a direct access point between the mind, body and emotions.
We believe in living a life free of judgement, filled with purpose, intention and gratitude. These elements inform and guide our teaching and practice, which is focused on helping students better connect to themselves, improve and maintain body and brain health, and self-modulate the autonomic nervous system through mindful, restorative movement and functional breathing.

I’d love to hear your feedback. Give me a call or reach out today.
I had never heard of Breathwork, but I figured I'll give it a try. The passion and warmth in Nicole's voice were inviting and difficult to say no to. However, with the sun barely crossing the horizon, the warmth of my bed, and my neck and back riddled with pain not showing up to her early morning beach session seemed more of an option. I pressed through and was so glad I did. The simple, yet methodical breathing not only relaxed me but released the pain in various spaces in my body. I was AMAZED! Here I was thinking, let me just go along to get along and I received so much more. I departed the session with a renewed appreciation, for the God-given gift of breathing, a smile, and a sense of gratitude. I highly recommend the practice of BREATHWORK to ALL regardless of age.
