What is transpersonal breathwork?
This breathing technique helps calm the thinking mind and enables access to the wisdom of the subconscious and the body. In this altered state of consciousness, you can gain new insights, find clarity about life, release pent-up tensions, explore old, outdated stories, and address physical or emotional issues. Breathwork aligns your heart, body, and mind, opening pathways to peak consciousness experiences. Transition Breath's Queer Breathwork offerings are trauma-informed and incorporate holistic psychotherapy principles into every session.
What is breathwork useful for?
Transition Breath’s approach is an exploration of the breath, whilst noticing what arises in the body. Participants are supported to let go of tension and soften into the unfolding energy within the body, all within a supportive group setting. This work can involve addressing self-limiting beliefs, stuck emotions and unresolved issues, enabling you to connect with your life force and vitality. It facilitates the release of stress, anxiety, depression, and stagnant energy. By understanding and transforming self-limiting behaviours and thought patterns, participants can become more empowered, aware and self-compassionate. Breathwork aids in healing cultural, ancestral and family traumas, ultimately leading to an overall improvement in well-being and acceleration of your personal growth journey.
Health and wellbeing considerations (contraindicators):
Breathwork uses a rhythmic/dynamic breathing pattern for an extended period of time, giving you access to an altered-state of consciousness. Whilst this breathing practice is safe, there are certain mental and physical conditions that may prevent you from participating in this workshop. These may include people with cardiovascular problems, pregnancy, some psychiatric conditions, psychosis, recent surgery or fractures, acute infectious illness or epilepsy, severe hypertension, glaucoma, or active spiritual emergency.

I’m a Canberra-based advanced breathwork practitioner and holistic psychotherapist, specialising in both individual and group breathwork sessions. After three years of breathwork study, I commenced my private practice in 2018 (Transition Breath). Since that time, I have traveled the world seeking to develop and enhance my understanding of various breathwork and pranayama techniques, attending and presenting at global breathwork conferences in the United States, Germany and New Zealand. I've trained with some of the world's most highly regarded breathwork practitioners, including Sondra Ray, Dan Brule, Jim Morningstar and Judith Kravitz. I am influenced by rebirthing breathwork, Holotropic breathwork, Vipassana meditation, bioenergetics, nature-based shamanic processes (Vision Quests) and plant-medicines. I'm also a rapport-based relating (holistic) psychotherapist, having trained with renowned therapist and rewilding mentor, Lee Trew.
I am a proud member of our LGBTIQA+ community and have roots in rural Australia. I feel intimately connected to the wisdom and healing potential of our Earth. I have a pug called Norman.
