These privates can focus on meditation or mantra therapy.  For those interested in a deep healing process with Mantras, called Mantra Therapy, these will be available by request.

La Respiración Transformacional es una técnica de respiración que transporta al participante a un estado alterado.  Este pranayama yógico es un patrón de respiración circular, semejante a lo del Rebirthing (Renacimiento).   Enseño la técnica antes de la sesión, y luego acompaño a los participantes por el movimiento inicial, seguido por la relajación.  Las visiones, la comprensión profunda, la liberación emocional, y la sanación de memorias viejas son posibles.  4+ horas (1.5 horas de enseñaza, 2 horas de la respiración, seguido por un tiempo de ‘recuperación’ e integración.)  $30-$45/persona, escala móvil.  Cupo limitado, así que es necesario que te inscribas.  Favor de contactar a:  Rebecca    099 454 9123

Transformational Breathwork is  a specific breathing technique designed to transport the participant into an altered state.  The yogic pranayama is a circular breathing pattern, similar to that used in Rebirthing.   I teach the technique before the session, and then coach participants through initial movement followed by relaxation.  Visions, deep insights, emotional release, and healing of old memories are possible.  4+hours (1.5 hour instruction, 2 hours of breathing, followed by a time for ‘recovery’ and integration).  $30-$45/person, sliding scale.  Class size is limited, so you must sign up for this workshop.  Contact:  Rebecca    099 454 9123
