Through Restorative Breathwork®





Discover the Transformative Power of Inner Stillness Through the Breath

Do you long for peace and stillness? Are you feeling disconnected from your True Self, the deepest and most authentic aspects of your being? In a world that can feel increasingly chaotic and unpredictable, it is easy to get lost in the chaos and become disconnected from our most valuable resource of energy, wisdom, and insight. Restorative Breathwork holds the potential to accessing this essential part of ourselves through the ancient practice of breath meditation.

Restoring our connection to the True Self is central to many spiritual traditions, as it is believed to be the key to deep personal transformation and spiritual growth. By connecting with your True Self and living in alignment with your soul's profound wisdom, you can experience greater peace, joy, and fulfillment. 

Restorative Breathwork has its roots in Eastern contemplative breath practices that seek to restore this integral connection. At its most basic level, Restorative Breathwork calms the nervous system and stills the mind; at a deeper level, this practice takes you deep into your soul, strengthening your connection with your True Self, opening a pathway to spiritual awakening, inner peace, and living life with physical, mental, and spiritual vibrancy.

From the ancient traditions of yoga and Buddhist

meditation to the enduring practices of qi gong and

tai chi, the breath has always been a powerful

vehicle for rejuvenating the body, mind, and spirit.

The Secret of the Ancients, "the Subtler the Breath, the Deeper the Work"  

Restorative Breathwork focuses on attaining an attentive awareness of the more subtle qualities of the breath rather than working with specific breath techniques. Instead, it seeks to establish a mindful relationship with the breath's innate intelligence, creating a sacred space of receptivity and openness to its directive. By embracing this gentle dance of effort and surrender, the breath leads us toward a profound inner stillness that facilitates purification, renewal, and awakening of the True Self.

In addition to promoting spiritual growth and transformation, Restorative Breathwork offers numerous benefits to the nervous system. By cultivating a sense of calm and resilience, this practice promotes physical health and emotional well-being. Its rhythmic movements trigger a profound relaxation response, which can help alleviate stress, anxiety, and loss of inspiration. Through Restorative Breathwork, individuals can experience a deep sense of inner peace, restoring their connection with the True Self and unlocking its transformative power.

The "Still Point" in the Breath, a Gateway to the Spiritual Dimensions of the Self 

The still point in the breath is a powerful component of the Eastern practice of breath meditation. It refers to a moment of stillness and awareness that can be found within the breath. By accessing this still point, we can tap into a deeper sense of wisdom and compassion that lies within us, helping us to rediscover our true selves and find inner peace.

At the heart of Restorative Breathwork lies a deep appreciation for the vast potential of this ancient practice. The still point in the breath has been revered for centuries in Eastern meditative traditions as a powerful tool for spiritual growth and awakening.The still point in the breath is a place where we can connect with our innermost being, our true selves. It is a moment of clarity and wisdom that can help us to let go of our fears and doubts, and awaken our true potential. Through regular practice, we can learn to access this still point more easily, and cultivate a deeper sense of purpose and meaning in our lives.

"Within each of us, there is a silence, a silence as vast as the universe.
And when we experience that silence, we remember who we are..."

"Having been in the health and fitness industry for nearly thirty years,  I have taken many courses for my professional licenses and certification requirements to improve my skills and advance my education.  I know first-hand how difficult online classes can be both as a facilitator as well as a participant.  I recently completed Kathleen Barratt's Restorative Breathwork Foundations Course and found it to be very well organized, professional, and informational.  Her progression of the material was clear and logical.  Her passion was very apparent throughout the course, as she was excited and helpful to her students.  The material in this course will help me improve my skills in teaching meditation, relaxation, and breathing techniques both in one-on-one clinical sessions as well as in a group atmosphere.  This was a refreshing course and I would recommend it to any Yoga Teacher or Health Professional."

"My relationship with Kathleen began in the early 1990s at a group breathwork session, and I have kept my heart close to her ever since. Her profound insights have provided me with impactful emotional and spiritual growth through her breath immersions, private sessions, and training programs. I honor her as one of my spiritual teachers and am always elated when my students work with her, as I know that they are taking their yoga practice and life to a deeper level."

—Angela Phillips, Founder, Angela Phillips Yoga Center

"If you are called to this work of learning the powerful art of supporting your own, and others', healing through the breath look no further—Kathleen's program and her teachings are the real deal: steeped in years of study and experiential knowing. I am grateful she has been, and continues to be, a mentor and guide on my path."

"After having been in the healing field as a nurse, and having received energy work from powerful healers, plus psychotherapy, I was surprised to find that Restorative Breathwork allowed me to have the most direct experience with the energy that is the giver of life. Kathleen is an experienced guide who is very wise, powerful, present, and sensitive. Her work alone has been the one force that has instigated my most dramatic spiritual learning."
