“First time doing breath work, and wow. Life changing.
Let me begin by saying that I’m not someone who is in the mind/body/mindfulness sector.
I’m someone who is in corporate, works out to relieve stress, and then go about my day. I’ve tried meditation/yoga but never could clear my mind or be calm. If anything, I couldn’t stop thinking of all the things I should be doing with that time. So when I heard “breath work,” I was like okay I breathe everyday, how is this going to do anything?
Andrea helped me at a time when I was mentally stressed out to the max. My friends even told me I looked stressed out. I thought talking about my feelings and having a good cry session will help me. However, even I had to acknowledge that my level of stress wouldn’t be solved by a workout or a cry session. I came in not knowing what I was going to be doing, but I was open. Hell, I was desperate. Andrea actively listened to me talk about what was happening in my life. This wasn’t just a few nods and saying how she understands how I feel. No, she really listened. She knew just by looking at me that I needed to figure it out on my own why I was feeling the way I was. At the same time, she knew I needed guidance. She did an amazing job balancing the two. After she showed me how to do the breathing technique we dived right in. I focused on my breathing. And then the tears came. I felt the physical reactions to the breath work Andrea showed me. I could feel the stress in my body and at the end of it, leaving my body. I’ll be honest, I was skeptical to all of this at first, but I was open. I had an out of mind/body experience and now I’m a firm believer of breath work. Andrea’s expertise along with her welcoming and comforting presence, helped me realize what was holding me back and what I need to let go and focus on. Being in her presence is invaluable.”

“I had a few 1:1 virtual sessions with AndreaM and it was awesome. The first time I did not do it quite right, but still gained a lot of insight from our dialogue before and afterwards. We rescheduled and I had a great experience! The only way I can describe it is an intense guided breathing meditation. It’s kind of wild and it doesn’t seem like anything will happen at first, but it really helped to clear some negative energy I had been feeling in my body. We did some specific visualization work that helped me to reframe some old hurts. AndreaM is caring and patient, emphasizing that she is not there to judge but to help you do “the work” needed to grow. She also encouraged me to brain dump/write more which was a big reminder for me, and has helped me since. If you are open and curious about spirituality, wellness and healing, this would be something I would recommend. I’m glad I did it!”

“I was always a skeptic about these kinds of experiences, but after doing a breathwork session with Andrea, I’ve been blown away and shocked by the results. She did an amazing job facilitating and all the detail she put into the session made it so memorable and worth it. I’m a big time believer now in the power of breathwork for sure!”

“Andrea’s abilities are amazing. If you’ve never done breathwork meditation and are unsure of what to expect, Andrea is absolutely the person who you should try this powerful meditation style with. I have never felt safer exploring spirituality and meditation with someone because she gets why people may be nervous about trying something that seems so “new agey”. She guides you throughout the session but the real magic happens when Andrea walks you through all of your questions with understanding and asks you powerful questions that allow you to see a new perspective instantaneously and helps you process what comes up during the session. I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing Andrea create a community of women and men who have truly been moved and motivated by their breathwork sessions with her and know you will be so happy to join this circle!”

“Andrea is a kindred soul who is passionate about sharing the healing affects of breathwork. She is gentle yet powerful in her guidance and facilitation. I came to her for a 1-on-1 private session and it literally took me to another realm of healing. I can tell the results are immediate because of the sensations I felt in my body. The work is being done in real time and that’s what’s amazing about it! Andrea creates a grounded space and the soundtrack that she plays is pleasantly unexpected. Her gift is a blessing for anyone who carries any burden or stress in their body and wants to release unwanted energy that weighs us down. Since I’m also a healer, I equally need work to help me release energy that I take on from others (in addition to my own). I’m excited for my next session in a couple of weeks. Her session is a MUST to gain inner peace.”

“Breathwork with Andrea was powerful. It was a reminder that we have the tools within ourselves to be more mindful, to forgive, to live our life fully.”
– Gloria, from the “Get Your Heart-On” Breathwork workshop
Breathwork with Andrea was awesome. I was able to lean into emotions I was holding back. I felt that the physical “opening up” was the catalyst for the emotional “opening up” that I needed. This was quite an experience. Thank you!”
