What is Breathwork?

How It Works

There are many different styles of breathwork. My methodology is a blend of classical pranayama, somatic trauma resolution, body focused inquiry, and attachment theory. I offer a range of proven practices that will address the core of what you are seeking to shift and integrate. The framework I developed supports nervous system regulation, widening our capacity for experiencing the felt sense, as well as healing and integrating our past. My session work takes a bottom up approach, meaning we work directly with your body and felt sense through breathing, movement and inquiry.

How it Feels

Sessions are led in a safe and co-regulated energy field. Together we will create an environment that supports your highest potential no matter what you are seeking. Each session is unique and determined by your intention for that particular session and our ongoing work together. Over time you will learn to identify the somatic markers of when your system is activated and when it is regulated. Our work together will encourage your system to grow and expand in a safe and contained way. At times you might experience energetic discharge and the felt sense of space in your body as you unwind past patterns that are no longer needed in the present time. You will also develop a tool kit of practical skills for everyday living and embodiment.

How We Process

We stay in close contact throughout your sessions to be sure we are staying within your range and capacity. This is essential when working with trauma as well as regressed states which often show up in our work together. Session work is cumulative. The deepest, most profound and sustainable changes take place within the context of the relational field which is why ongoing session work is recommended. It takes time and practice to learn new skills and integrate the work. A teacher once said to me that for every year we’ve suffered we should anticipate one month of session work. I often give homework between sessions to support you in continuing to process your experiences on your own and integrate any thoughts and feelings as actions in your daily life.

Testimonials

"While I was nervous going into the session, there was nothing about working with Ashley that made me nervous. I released so much emotion during our time together that I didn't even realize I was carrying. The breathing exercises we did were incredible and very easy to learn. I would recommend Ashley’s work to anyone who is willing to confront the demons they are trying to hide. She is brilliant at providing a space that makes that confrontation feel possible and safe. It’s important to note that you will likely be tired post session however, I wouldn't change a single thing about the experience, it was remarkable. Thank you for your warmth and non-judgemental witnessing Ashley!"

"My only hesitation about working with Ashley was the cost, but it has definitely been worth it, no question. I really appreciate how non-judgmental and supportive Ashley is during our sessions. I’ve received numerous benefits from her breathwork and somatic inquiry practices, at the top of my list are: newfound clarity in my life, the ability to safely release emotions both my own and those I inherited through my lineage as well as the capacity to ground and regulate my nervous system with consistency. To anyone interested in working with Ashley, be prepared to go deep. Ashley’s methodology is truly transformational, nuanced, and unlike anything healing modality I’ve ever tried including therapy."

"I wasn’t quite sure if breathwork was right for me, but during our first session I was able to breathe deeper, had clearer thoughts, increased focus, and decreased anxiety. In the weeks following I was refocused and recharged. I was blown away by how effective the practice was and the space Ashley holds for this work. I’ve recommended her to my wife and close friends."

If you’re called to work with Ashley, trust your instincts. Her work is radically different and much more heart centered than anything you have tried before. Trust me. Ashley’s authentic kindness and breadth of knowledge about the body and the way trauma patterns influence our nervous system and ultimately beliefs has given me access to a part of myself I thought was broken. Since working together I have been able to, for the first time in my life feel safe in my body. This might sound weird but it has been such a deep healing for me. I’ve also learned how to stay more in connection with my body instead of leaving all the time. I knew I was anxious and full of fear before working together but I was so accustomed to keeping a lid on it and managing it everyday that I had no idea just how much I needed support to unwind and come into connection. Ashley holds a safe and sacred space for this transformational work to unfold. Each session is deeper than the next as my capacity for being with discomfort and grief as well as joy and calm grows and grows. I am grateful to Ashley for being in it with me and for being a trusted guide, helping me to come home to my heart.

"I knew I would have to get real with myself during my work with Ashley, and the support she provided made that less daunting. Our breathwork session powerfully connected me to my body and helped me realize my breath can influence my state of being. Ashley creates a safe place to uncover what is below the surface and unconscious mind. In my journey of self-discovery and looking to go deeper into my body and heal, Ashley has been an incredible guide."
S.N., Orange County, CA
"After my first session, one of my biggest takeaways was how much I was holding. Our work gave me a method to help let some of it go. Ashley helped make me feel comfortable and understood. When working with Ashley, show up open for anything and it’s amazing what shifts can be made in a short time."
