- healing breath therapy
Sunday, October 16
$35 + gst
For breath is life, and if you breathe well you will live long on earth. ~Sanskrit Proverb
Healing Breath Therapy is a healing system based on the natural intelligence of the body. This therapy utilizes the power of the breath to heal and balance the mind and body combining techniques of yogic breathing and shamanic breathing. Breath is the most powerful source of life force energy (prana) which can heal the body, open blockages, reveal patterns or addictions, assist in the releasing of past trauma or abuse and accelerate spiritual growth.
“This powerful therapy is safely and expertly guided, each session offers a new experience in healing, self exploration and growth.” D.N.

Jeanette Ward, 500RYT
Jeanette’s passion and enthusiasm for teaching yoga is a delight to be a part of. She began to experience the numerous positive benefits of practicing yoga in 1996 and started teaching in 2002. With a background in Group Fitness (since 1988), Jeanette has discovered that bringing unity and balance to the mind, body and spirit, is just as important as keeping the physical body in shape. During her extended yoga teacher training in India (2009), Jeanette’s knowledge and understanding of yoga was deepened and enriched by her teacher, Yogi Vishvketu. She considers it one of the most transformational experiences of her life, and is most grateful for the profound healing that she received. Other teachers that Jeanette feels most fortunate to have studied with are: Donna Farhi, TKV Desikachar, Mark Whitwell, Rodney Yee and Shiva Rea. Jeanette’s awareness of the energetic aspect of the human body has been enhanced through the practice of yoga. She has taken numerous courses in energetic anatomy, is a Reiki Practitioner and has experienced first hand, the power of hands on healing. Jeanette is thrilled to be sharing the many gifts of yoga and energy healings on a full-time basis.
