Conscious Connected Breathing
Although I teach a variety of breathing techniques, I believe the deepest work happens in a series of one-on-one Conscious Connected Breathing (aka Rebirthing Breathwork) sessions. This technique is often physically activating, and there is an increased awareness of feelings and sensations occurring in your body. But you may find yourself in a meditative state or deep relaxation. It’s not what most people think of as meditation. The intent is not in trying to clear your mind; rather you allow whatever comes up to just be, so you have the choice to release the attachment to the thought or memory.
A Rebirthing Breathwork session takes up to 2 hours.
In a Mindful Breathwork session, together we explore your physiological indicators of stress, and understand your breathing patterns in terms of how your body responds to stress. I will customize an intervention of breathing exercises that will help you develop a mindful breathwork practice and get back in tune with the body, so you can understand how to soothe your stress responses. Mindfully changing long held somatic patterns results in changing thinking patterns as well.
A Mindful Breathwork session lasts about an hour.
A breathwork coach facilitates sessions in which you are supported to experience the enhanced breath and its effect on your body in a safe atmosphere. I help you in processing challenges with a multitude of tools, until you feel equipped enough to support yourself. The choice to be supported in a private session is an act of self compassion. Learning breathwork to clear energetic blocks is an act of self efficacy.
Rebirthing breathwork: $120 per session; $500 for 5 sessions.
Mindful breathwork: $60 per session
Praise for the work
“I had 10 sessions with Catherine, and one session in the water [wet rebirthing]. I also participated in a group session. Her work helped me see feelings and some traumas that I did not understand before. My experience was so positive that I took my sister, my ex-boyfriend and a co-worker to her and I also recommend her work to anyone. Catherine is loving, welcoming, experienced and knowledgeable. I always felt very safe and comfortable with her. I’ll always be grateful to her!”
“Catherine has truly altered my life in a way that can never fully be repaid. Her gentle soul and open mind were great vehicles for me to achieve all I did, in relatively little time. The tools she has given me and helped me to hone in this rebirthing process have made me a better person and a stronger person, albeit a work in process…I could honestly go on and on about this experience I shared with her along the 10 sessions; no two sessions were alike, and ranged from incredibly painful to incredibly miraculous experiences, without any exaggeration. I have and will continue to honor and share what I’ve learned, refer her to everyone I can, and be grateful for the tools I can use on my path.”
“My sessions with Catherine have been incredibly powerful and, as someone who’s been doing breathwork for some time (on my own, and with other coaches), having Catherine as my navigator stood out significantly for several reasons. Her guidance, intuition and insight, which I find instrumental in getting the most of my experiences, are key. It’s as if Catherine has a “sixth sense” as she effortlessly taps in to emotions with gentle suggestions, while at the same time, she will call you forth, drawing out your most fierce courage in ways that will delightfully surprise you! Catherine will meet you where you are, expertly holding the space while she provides clarity around challenges and new possibilities. You will start to notice new and wonderful perspectives creep into your daily life, thanking Catherine in the back of your mind, thanking yourself for showing up in life, and looking forward to your next session.”
“Catherine is the most chillaxed person I have ever known. I did a breathing session in a hotel room hours before my flight back to Hong Kong and I don’t know why but I cried through the breathing and then felt so much lighter afterwards. Needless to say, ANYONE can benefit from learning to breathe, and Catherine Man is gentle, patient and kind and will guide you through it!”
