With the right mind-body tools, this transformation is within your reach. 

And it all starts with harnessing the power of breathwork.

Now, you can use a simple, effective framework to help your child develop lifelong skills for overcoming anxiety, enhancing focus, boosting lung health, and so much more.

And my personalized, tailored coaching can show you how. In just a few sessions, you’ll know exactly how to help your child “flip a switch” and activate those mind-body tools. 

Discover the connection between breathing and stress and unleash the true potential to navigate life's ups and downs with ease. Then, you’ll be equipped to confidently guide your child to greater happiness and success! 

How to help your child unlock  the mind-body “switch” that unleashes their calming, focus-enhancing superpower

We all know that when anxiety strikes, it triggers the body’s 'fight or flight' mode. 

It’s a protective state that can help ward off a potential threat. But it can have the opposite effect, too, and wreak havoc on your child’s focus, confidence, and performance. 

But here's the exciting part:  our bodies come equipped with a natural switch that can shift from this 'protective' state to a 'restorative' one. It’s our superpower! 

It’s a “switch” that can give you calm in the midst of bedtime battles. 

It's a reset during morning madness. It activates focus for daily activities.

You can learn to flip the switch and activate this superpower at any time and in any place… 

And show your child how to do the same! 

Discover the 3 secrets to activating your body’s “superpower”

Secret #1

You can uncover natural ways for your child to overcome stress and anxiety without medications, the latest supplement trend, or constant doctor visits.

Secret #2

You can activate the innate tool that enables your child to manage stress, build resilience, and avoid harmful habits in the future.

Secret #3

The fastest way to build a calm and peaceful household, reduce tantrums, and support your child’s mental health is to stop reacting… and start building this skill!

“I have always known that breath is one of the most important aspects of our health and during my own healing journey I have become aware of my own dysfunctional breathing habits.

After working with Stephanie, I definitely feel my breathing has improved! I breathe more efficiently and effectively. I love being able to visualize where to open up space in my body to allow full use of my lungs.

Plus, my sleep and mood have improved! I feel more centered and calm.

During my one-on-one sessions, I felt totally comfortable, safe and supported. I loved working with Stephanie!

If you’re on the fence, definitely go for it, it’s worth it!  I notice I default into techniques I learned when I am noticeably stressed- sometimes without even having to think about it!”

Frequently Asked Questions

Wondering how the service works? 

Dive into our FAQ for more details

Why should I learn how to breathe well?We breathe over 20,000 times a day, but most of us breathe inefficiently and in a way that increases stress.  

Here are a few more reasons why breathing is the lowest-hanging fruit of physical, mental, and emotional health.

• The link between the mind and body can be the catalyst for your emotional state

• Poor breathing habits magnify over a lifetime, affecting health and happiness. Many people are unaware that they are stuck in stressed breathing habits for weeks, months, or even years

• Anyone can learn it
• It is accessible
• It is drug free
• It is accessible anytime and anywhere
• It strengthens the immune system
• It stimulates movement & circulation

Benefits of breathing well?

• Improves the digestive system
• Enhances lung function (better gas exchange)
• Increases muscle performance
• Reduces neck and shoulder pain
• Improves heart health
• Lower stress levels
• Decreases blood pressure
• Regulates the nervous system

I've never done breathwork before. Is this for me?The good news is that you were born breathing well, so your body knows how to breathe well. We just need to re-learn how to breathe the way the body is designed to breathe.

Don't we breathe automatically? Why do I need to be taught how to breathe?Breathing is both voluntary and involuntary. This means that our habits play a role in how we breathe; without awareness of these habits, our breathing can become inefficient and dysfunctional.

If breathing becomes dysfunctional, your health suffers. We are all born with a healthy breathing style, but many of us lose this style and adopt unhealthy and inefficient breathing habits. The goal of breath re-training is to re-learn how to breathe optimally. 

I am already so busy, how will I find the time for breathing exercises?The customized breathing routine will only take 10-15 minutes a day and can be added to your normal exercise routine as a warm-up or cool down. 

What qualifications do you have for teaching breathwork?My combined passion for teaching and breathwork will give you the best experience and expertise to get your body to breathe well again. As a mother, I see the need for new tools to manage stress and pass these essential skills down to our children. I invite you to join me on a transformative experience that is practical, fun, and effective!

How long does it take to see results?The time it takes varies for each person due to factors like breathing habits, age, and more. Some individuals have experienced results within a few days, while for others, it might take a few weeks.

Your commitment to daily exercises and staying mindful throughout the day will play a significant role in the outcome.
