Kathleen's breathwork system, Restorative Breathwork®, has evolved out of years
of study, personal practice, and experience with thousands of clients.

In the early 1980s, Kathleen developed an interest in breathwork as a dynamic tool for healing and transformation. She trained in various breathwork methods that encouraged hyperventilation and strong emotional catharsis.

Over time, she found herself being drawn to a subtler approach to the breath, inspired by her studies in bioenergy with Mietek and Margaret Wirkus. Stepping away from systems that placed control upon the breath, she has developed a more yin approach to breathwork that has its roots in the Eastern systems of breath meditation.

Kathleen's breathwork system, Restorative Breathwork®, has evolved out of years of study, personal practice, and experience with thousands of clients. Kathleen possesses the unique ability to translate the esoteric theories and philosophies of the Eastern science of breath into a language that is easily comprehended.

Working with Kathleen has been a life-changing experience for many of her clients. With the utmost sensitivity, skill, and grace, she has helped her clients in their path toward profound healing. For them, she is not just a healer. She is a guide “to anyone seeking a deeper understanding of life's mystery.”

Kathleen's unconditional love, guidance, and unique approach to the science of breath continue to gracefully illuminate her work. “She embodies what she's sharing and her passion for this work not only comes through her physical presence but also in each breath, each word, and the spaces in between,” as one of her clients says it.

 
Other than working with clients, Kathleen has been training yoga therapists, life coaches, meditation teachers, and other mind-body professionals for decades. She has also conducted workshops and training in Restorative Breathwork throughout the United States, including at the Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. (Association for Research and Enlightenment) in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and the International Society for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine Conference in Boulder Colorado.
 
Kathleen is registered as an E-RYT 500 and holds a Master Certificate in Bioenergy Healing through the Wirkus School of Bioenergy. Since 1988, she has offered both personal and professional studies in breathwork and bioenergy through her foundation, Barratt Breath Institute.
Kathleen has dedicated her life to mastering and teaching Breathwork.
She has spent more than 30 years and 50,000 hours to pioneer Restorative Breathwork®
