Breathwork is an ancient practice and science of healing that has been utilized by cultures around the world for thousands of years. It is widely known that breath is the primary carrier of life-force energy (Chi in China, Prana in India, Ki in Japan, Mana in Hawaii, etc.). All ancient cultures knew that the breath was a powerful tool for working with our life-force energy, and in doing so, expanding our consciousness and connection to the source of life, releasing stored emotional traumas and memories, healing negative energies, destructive thought patterns, and limiting beliefs, and cultivating exponential levels of health and vitality, leading to happier, healthier, and more harmonious lives.
The art and science of Breathwork is slowly making its way back into the collective awareness as an effective method of healing and spiritual development. In the 1930s, the inspired mystic and healer Alice Bailey warned that centuries of cultural conditioning, and especially social and psychological conditioning, have created "large populations of spiritually dysfunctional people who struggle to realize their full potential and discover who they really are." Bailey predicted that the solution to these problems would be the widespread use of carefully designed breathing techniques, with their ability to recognize and readjust a person's energetic constitution and so bring about self-healing.
Well the future is here, and it is true that people are rediscovering the incredible power of the breath and its ability to heal and help one grow spiritually. I am thankful to have had the honor and privilege of studying Breathwork with Michael Brian Baker, the founder of The Breath Center. Michael has taught me what, in my experience, has been the most effective form of Breathwork that I have ever practiced. Through my training with Michael, I have been certified to share this practice with others, and to have the honor of helping others on their personal journey of healing and spiritual-growth.
It is worth mentioning that this type of Breathwork is much different than the type of pranayama that is taught in the modern yoga class. This is an inner journey in which you use the breath and life-energy to clear out energetic blockages, heal emotional wounds, and release limiting beliefs and thought patterns. During a Breathwork session you confront what is laying beneath the surface of your awareness—whether that is anger, fear, anxiety, etc.—and you are given the opportunity to release this energy and heal the root cause. It is a very liberating, but often emotionally intense practice. It is always done laying down, and the breath pattern itself is very simple and gentle. Every experience is unique to the individual that practices it and whatever particular things they are working through on their personal journey of healing and evolution.
I offer private one-on-one sessions, either in person or online via Skype. Each session is 1-2 hours long, and during that time I will be here with you to guide you through the practice and to help you get what you intended to receive. It is my sincere motivation to be a friend to you, to help you on your path, and to offer compassionate guidance in this work and all that it can reveal.
Each session is usually $80, but I really want more people to experience the benefits of this practice, so for a limited time sessions will be offered by donation. Whatever you feel the session is worth for you or whatever you are able to donate is fine. If you feel the need to heal, to discover a greater sense of well-being, or are just curious about the practice of breathwork, this is a great opportunity to work with a truly healing and liberating practice.
Breathwork sessions are booked within a two-week period (see chart below).
Each session lasts from 1 to 2 hours, so plan to reserve a 2-hour block (Example: 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm)

"All effective healing begins with the breath, for our breath carries life force into our bodies. By becoming aware of our breathing, we can refine our receptivity to subtle energies for both self-healing and healing others and recognize our connection to all other living, breathing beings on earth."
A video review from my dear friend Sarah, sharing her Breathwork experience and how it helped her release emotions she had been holding on to and helped her heal from her severe shoulder pain.
"I have been following Joseph's work on Instagram for years and recently experienced a breathwork session with him over Skype. Upon connecting, I was put at ease with the gentle, kind, positive way he has about him. He seems to have the perfect blend of old wisdom and a youthful spirit that makes his work so relatable and calming.
Our breathwork session brought me deeper into myself than I have ever been before. I regularly practice yoga, meditation, sound healing, acupuncture, and energy healing. None of those modalities brought me the awareness of self that breathwork accomplished. I felt lighter, present in my body, and more open and aware than ever!
I am so happy to have connected with Joseph and I look forward to adding regular breathwork sessions to my healing journey. Much love and many thanks!"
—Virginia Frank, Boston
"Being my first experience with breathwork, I can say that I am astounded by the transformational effect it had in my overall state of mind, no doubt it was one of the most intense experiences I have had.
Having passed two days I can feel a difference in the background noise of my mind, having now a bigger sense of calm and equanimity. It helped me realize things that I have in my consciousness that do not serve me and how to align myself to no longer be attached to them, it also helped me to be more aware of the pure energy that regulates our entire sense of being facing it and feeling it in my body. It was an experience beyond words.
Joseph was an excellent guide throughout the whole session, transmitting serenity and kindness in every moment with his words and his presence. I feel very grateful to him.
I would recommend anyone who has the intention to grow to experiment with this practice because it is the experience itself that can help us transform the information into knowledge."
—Nicolas Betbese, Argentina
"Wow! I can't believe how powerful this experience was. I never would have thought that through my breath I could experience an almost psychedelic state. It felt like I went on a shamanic journey into my self and it brought up things I didn't even know were there. I realized that I was holding onto so much! and even better it helped me let it go! I feel so light and peaceful now, and I am beyond thankful for Joseph for facilitating this work. If this calls to you, I recommend giving it a try! The experience is like nothing else."
—Charlotte Brown, North Carolina
"I had my first breathwork session ever and I’m stoked that Joseph was the facilitator! Being relatively new to breathwork I was honestly a bit apprehensive but Joseph was very calm and guided me through the session in a kind and gentle way. The result of the session provided me with an abundance of energy combined with a tranquil peacefulness."
—Brenden Todd, Australia
“When I answered the skype call with Joseph I could feel his incredible energy and welcoming spirit immediately. He radiates peace and I knew that I was in good hands. Joseph exudes patience, presence and understanding with a gentle warmth that resonates with the heart. He gave me a full description of what the breath work experience would be like, what to expect, and told me to remember to surrender to the process; to be a participant as well as a witness to the experience. He assured me that my intention for healing and releasing trapped emotions would be met, but it required trust on my part. He gave me an informative description on the type of practice we would be doing and made sure that I was breathing correctly before we started.
When the first round began, I could feel my soul jumping up and down in joy and excitement for the healing work that I was doing. Intense emotions came up to the surface in the other rounds as my body was collecting energy I had never felt before. Joseph always said the right things to bring me back to my intention and back to the trust. I connected with my higher self in those difficult moments, and I felt the immense love from the oneness that made me remember that I Am. Every cell in my body was bursting with gratitude and I truly didn’t want the session to end. I felt the life force energy of my being fill my body and cleanse it of everything I’ve been holding on to. This sacred experience was nothing short of a blessing, and I truly can’t wait for my next session. Joseph is a true healer and guide, and anyone who feels the call from spirit to work with him should. Infinite love and gratitude. Thank you, brother!”
-Danica Paulos, New York City
“Don’t be fooled by his youth , this is an old soul . The breathwork session was transformational and powerful. Joseph was kind and patient. Took the time to explain and answer all our questions, the technique itself is simple but potent. We highly recommend a session with Joseph if you want to remove energetic blockages that limit your potential. We are very grateful for the amazing session and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him, hopefully we get to do another session with him.”
-Pablo Rozas, New Zealand
“Such a deeply Divine and powerful healing experience I had during my Breathwork session with Joseph.
I went into the session with the intention to release some fears around vulnerability, but was shown and gifted so much more than that! If I needed any clarification on my spiritual journey, I sure got it!
I now feel more peaceful and freer in my body, and clearer on my path ahead. I realize that, actually, vulnerability was where my power was all along!
I have so much love and gratitude for Joseph, who held my space so beautifully with love and gentle wisdom. Thank you xo”
-Samantha Summerfield, Australia
“There are not words in this planet to describe my first experience with Breathwork and Joseph. The session was very intense and I could feel that I released a lot of baggage that was holding me back, I feel fresher, healthier and happier! I am a very private person and at the beginning it was a bit awkward that he was watching me through Skype, but at some point Joseph mention the words: "commit to your breath" and that meant much more to me because it was more a reminder for me to commit to getting rid of feelings that were already bothering me and that I couldn't control, plus that I have tried from doctors to yoga and nothing had worked out at a really deep level. I still don't know if I am completely free, but I can happily say that this time feels different and amazing! thank you very much Joseph.”
“When I signed up for a breathwork session I didn’t know what to expect. I'd assumed the term referred to the common breathing exercises practiced during yoga. Before the session began Joseph listed a few things to be aware of, mentioning things like "whatever feelings you come across try to stay with the breathing tempo" and "whatever emotions come to the surface just allow them to be" I thought to myself "what the heck did I get myself into?"
What followed was an hour of the absolute surreal physical and mental experience of my life! Once I proclaimed my intention and settled deeper into the breathing tempo I began feeling 'tension' in my lips/chin area. The 'tension' then spread to my hands and finally my knees. I was literally vibrating! I was rooted to the spot, barely able to move. My hands were floating above my stomach (I was lying down with my hands resting on my tummy). I had to uncover my eyes to be sure of what I was feeling and behold! My hands were actually floating! It was chi I was feeling and I never felt it before. I'd heard of monks and yogis harnessing their chi but I wasn't aware that I also could do it. My mind was blown.
I wondered why these three areas of my body were affected so intensely. Joseph later explained the chi was moving out stagnant energy and those areas are where my body stored it most. He then explained what each area meant. He was just amazing at coaching me through the session, particularly as someone who was very new to the practice. His guidance was compassionate and soothing. I am already planning my next session. I feel as though the trajectory of my life changed with that one session. Thank you, Joseph.”
