Welcome to the Transformational Breathing Series
Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. (Genesis 2:7 NIV)
Breathing Practices & Definitions
“Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky.
Conscious breathing is my anchor.” ―
The breath has played an essential role throughout history, and the word ‘breath’ and ‘spirit’ share the same origin in many languages. Breath-centered practices and meditations are in many ancient cultures and religions, including Taoism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Yoga, Qigong, Shamanism, Sufism, and martial arts. Many of these cultures and religions used breathing techniques for similar reasons as Modern Breath Work – to alter consciousness for spiritual purposes, self-discovery, and healing.
Westerners mostly forgot the practice of using the breath for healing and awakening during civilization; however, it experienced a re-emergence in the 1960’s thanks primarily to four people – Stanislav and Christine Grof, Leonard Orr, and Sondra Ray. These four individuals gave birth to the two original branches of modern-day Breathwork – Holotropic and Rebirthing, from which dozens of offshoots have since been born.
Transformational Breathing is a gentle, simple technique that helps people to open up the full potential of their breathing system for better physical and emotional well-being. It teaches a pattern of conscious breathing that is natural, safe, and healthy. It can have many benefits, including increased energy, better immune response, and increased ability to deal with stress healthily.
Dr. Judith Kravitz / Alchemy of Breath
Transformational Breathing is a cutting-edge breath work therapy combining conscious breathing, gentle body mapping (similar to acupressure), movement, toning (vocal sound), and positive affirmations.
Transformative Breath Work is a direct application of conscious, connected breathing. Taking a relaxed physical position, you sustain a full and flowing breath through the nose and/or open mouth. You actively breathe in by lifting the upper chest or expanding the belly, then exhale naturally with the intention to relax and let go completely.
Human respiration is controlled consciously or unconsciously. Conscious breathing is an umbrella term for methods that direct awareness to the breath. These methods may aim to improve breathing, or the primary goal can be to build mindfulness.
To Breathe Ecstatically is to activate all levels of being into “a state of being beyond reason and self-control.” Through the dynamic movement of breath that is both energizing and highly focused, we move into a space of release, of letting go. It is a practice of surrender and flow.
Integrative Breathing is a potent, safe, and natural healing process which utilizes conscious breathing patterns to induce healing–physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. As we expand the quality and quantity of breath in our body, our healing energy intensifies.
The History of BreathWork
“Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts. Whenever your mind becomes scattered, use your breath as the means to take hold of your mind again.” ― Thich Nhat Hanh

About Solfeggio Frequencies
“If you want to find the secrets of the universe,
think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” ―
Back in the 11th century, a Benedictine monk named Guido d’Arezzo introduced the musical scale we now know as the Solfeggio frequencies – though modern research contests that the scale dates back much further (1).
The monks used the original six Solfeggio notes in their Gregorian chants, which we now know to consist of the frequencies: 396, 417, 528, 639, 741, and 852 (Hertz).
Some say the Solfeggio was simply abandoned for a new music scale, others argue that it disappeared among the political and religious turmoil of Western Europe’s Middle Ages. There are even some who posit some more, well, conspiratorial theories, from Biblical secrets to plots by the Roman Catholic Church. Whatever the cause, the six-tone Solfeggio scale, also known as “Just Intonation,” was replaced by the “Twelve-Tone Equal Temperament,” which is what we still use today (2).
The 7 Primary Human Challenges
Health / Emotions / Abundance / Relationships / Purpose / Awakening / Expansion
This series of Transformational Breathing offers a practice for each of the 7 Primary Human Challenges.
Good health is our foundation. When we experience disease – dis-ease, the absence of ease and efficiency in our body – our quality of life is compromised. Nothing else can be achieved when our time and resources focus on bringing the body back into balance. Our relationships, work, and wealth are all affected. Modern society has convinced people to only address health after we have an issue and often is only focused on alleviating symptoms instead of addressing the root cause.
This practice is created to activate your innate healing ability. Using the Solfeggio frequency of 285 Hz, associated with cellular repair, helps the body’s tissue and organs regenerate, improving overall well-being and rejuvenation of the body.
The pranayama breathing exercise is Anulom Vilom, a form of alternate nostril breathing.
- Creates balance within the body, feminine/masculine emotion, and logic.
- Assists improvement of circulatory and respiratory problems
- Regulates blood pressure by managing blood circulation.
- Improves the muscular system and provides an overall sense of well-being.
2. Emotions – Fear
Fear is what we experience if perceive ourselves to be in danger. This can be physical, emotional, or psychological. The fear can also be real or imagined.
While fear is an important indicator to help keep us safe, being in fear long-term is detrimental to our quality of life.
When we are in fear, our breathing is often affected. We can experience shortness of breath, hold our breath – depriving our bodies of oxygen, or hyperventilate, which activates the sympathetic nervous system, increasing the heart rate, raising the blood pressure, and making us feel anxious.
Fear takes us out of the present moment as we imagine all the potential dangers ahead of us.
When can bring our awareness back to the present and ground ourselves, we will realize that at this moment, we are safe and in control. We are then able to calmly and objectively address our thoughts. And then take the relevant action if needed.
The breathing pattern in this practice is often called Box Breathing. You will inhale for four counts, hold for four counts and exhale for four counts. Over time, as your capacity grows, you may choose to increase the count.
The Solfeggio frequency 396 Hz is used because of its ability to alleviate feelings of guilt and fear, making space for us to experience the joys and endless possibilities of life.
So many of us feel contracted when we think about money. Our mind moves from appreciating what we have in the present moment to being concerned about the future. We worry about having enough to meet our needs or that we will lose what we have. In these present times, these are valid concerns.
Many of our issues around money are rooted in trauma, shame, and/or unworthiness that build limiting beliefs blocking the flow of abundance. So, if we can cultivate a feeling of deserving, being supported, and trusting, we are open to receiving what we need, when we need it, in whatever form it is presented to us.
Remember that abundance is your birthright; know that all our needs WILL be met.
In this breathing practice, we will first work to release any blocks and tensions you may be holding and then open up to receive.
The Solfeggio frequency is 528 Hz to clear away old fear and negative blockages and assist in manifesting abundance and harmony.
Our success in our relationships aligns with the relationship we have with ourselves.
The more we are able to confront and heal our deep traumas and break cycles of abuse, the better we are able to relate to others.
At the core of this is true self-love. Living and radiating our deep appreciation for who we are as an individual will be reflected in how we are met by others. The deeper we journey into the true knowledge of who we are, the richer our external experiences are.
We are rooted in Self, unperturbed by people’s reactions, we can recognize they indicate areas where they have not met themselves.
We radiate confidence and communicate sincerely – the cornerstone for all relationships.
The more you reside in this space of self-love people will see and meet you as your Highest Self, respect, and love you.
The solfeggio frequency accompanying this practice is 639 Hz for connection, harmony, and peace.
We will practice the Heart Chakra breathing technique that will bring deep awareness into your heart, dissolving any blocks and inviting love and unity.
Modern society has placed such a focus on “earning a living” that the majority of people choose work that will give them the greatest financial reward. Sadly this means that most are in work that cannot fulfill them on a deeper level. They spend their years feeling overlooked and unappreciated.
This is the state of mind of most adults and, therefore, society; unfulfilled people going along to get along, too fearful of addressing this core aspect, and easily distracted by useless things that offer only fleeting gratification.
Despite this need for change, most people have no idea of what they would do given the freedom to choose and also hold the belief that they will not be able to support themselves and family without a job. The lack we feel is from knowing that we are not serving, that our work is not contributing to the collective in a meaningful way.
Imagine the shift we would experience if everybody were working with purpose, and you will see why it is imperative that more people discover this in themselves.
The world needs people who lead with their purpose and know that if you are serving others, you will always be supported.
This practice is Ujjayi pranayama (ocean breath, victorious breath) good for increasing mental clarity, concentration, and strengthening your nervous system. The Solfeggio Frequency is 741Hz, a tone strengthening the ability to express yourself freely and openly.
Awakening and embarking on your spiritual journey is a magical yet daunting experience. This is the beginning of self-discovery, healing, and individuation. It is a transformative lifelong undertaking. As you grow, you will discover the true beauty of reality, nature, and the soul of others. Your curiosity will blossom. There will be a new perception of what is possible in life as latent abilities, intuition, manifestation, and Clair senses are activated.
Over time you will find yourself drawn to like-minded, heart-centered people.
This practice incorporates Conscious Connected Breathing, a powerful process that transforms us physically as more oxygen enters our cells, emotionally as it brings awareness to suppressed feelings and, on a spiritual level building a sense of wholeness and connection. The Solfeggio Frequency is 852Hz aligns us with the spiritual order of the world and is in tune with our higher self.
Our expansion reminds us of our union with universal consciousness, intuitive knowledge, and love, where everything is possible.
We are supported, allowing ourselves to ‘be’ and release the need to ‘do.’
We easily observe ourselves, our reactions, and our emotions. And can therefore appreciate and respect the journey of those in our lives and honor the choices they make.
Recognizing that all is well.
This practice is Om/Aum Chanting or Ugdeeth Pranayama.
Om is a sacred sound of the divine and represents the sound of the universe. The chanting of Om/Aum connects us to this energy. It is beneficial for spiritual growth, it fills our body with energy, peace, and tranquility.
The Solfeggio frequency is 963 Hz, which takes us to the highest plane of consciousness and connects us with the perfection of the universe.
Transformational Breathing Series was developed incorporating several strategies, including conscious breathing techniques and various other healing and spiritual principles; transformational Breathing is a highly efficient and effective technique that has been used and found beneficial by many thousands of people worldwide for over fifty years.
Transformational Breathing Series is shared as a powerful self-help tool for those seeking intentional awakening and healing to give an understanding of how they can work with their own breath on an ongoing basis to create personal transformation. It can and has been used to great effect either on its own or in combination with other types of tools/treatments.
