Finding true inner stillness through a yin approach to breathwork 

Restorative Breathwork® takes breathwork to a whole new level. It's unique from other breathwork systems because it focuses on a more subtle yin approach to working with the breath cultivating profound states of inner stillness and deeper meditative experiences. No breath control, no hyperventilation, no cathartic reactions. Just gently modifying the breath in sync with its natural rhythms to cultivate deep states of inner stillness and greater self-awareness.

Restorative Breathwork®, pioneered by Kathleen Barratt, has its roots in Eastern practices. It increases vagal tone, calms the nervous system, and stills the mind. It will restore and deepen your connection with your True Self, leading to inner transformation and spiritual awakening. Restorative Breathwork® fosters physical, mental, and spiritual vibrancy and inner resilience, fostering true equanimity.

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.

Unleash the breath's vast potential to cultivate profound states of inner stillness

Restorative Breathwork offers a sequential process of moving into stillness: first the body, then the breath, then the mind, and then emptying into the deep inner silence of meditation. In this "inner quiet," we awaken to the quiet presence of the True Self and a deeper level of inner transformation available to us.

"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."

Nona Jordan, Master Coach, Guide, and Author

"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."
