About the Event
If you’re feeling like now’s the time - time to move past feeling stuck…time to release discomfort stored in your body…time to process what needs to be processed..so you can regain your balance, feel deeply connected to yourself, feel the joy of being alive and expand courageously into your potential.
Then my invitation is to join our small group container (6 women max) as we journey through the transformative power of Breathwork, alongside coaching techniques, over 6 weeks online.
Because as women living in a modern society, many of us have freedoms our grandmothers could only dream of…and yet…levels of stress, anxiety and overwhelm are commonplace and many of us have a level of disconnection from our most valuable ally – our body. Our breath patterns reflect the level of ease or tension that we live with…when we harness and free the breath, we quickly begin to feel ripples of increased ease flowing throughout our lives in so many ways.
At the core of our journey is the deep release potential of Conscious Connected Breathwork – alongside an array of calming and grounding Breathwork techniques. There’s the sisterhood of weekly sharing circles, and inspiring teachings…from the science of developing healthy breathing patterns and befriending our nervous system, to balancing the energetics in your body.
As you experience this self healing toolkit, you develop personalised tools for life to regulate your nervous system and draw yourself back into balance, empowerment and alignment.
You are welcome and encouraged to bring all of yourself in this invitation to reset and rise – to lovingly draw down the layers of coping, adaption and trauma to reveal your innate wisdom and sense of internal compass. To feel who you really are underneath the layers, to experience clarity and insight on your unique circumstances, and to create a clear path moving forward.
Because the likelihood is
That at some point we suppressed some big emotions and they got held in our bodies. As this happened we developed patterns of contraction or protection. Then these patterns got activated again when similar emotions arose.
By tracing our physical patterns – we can become aware of our ‘stories’ of old pains, hurts and happenings that still affect us. And as we start to reset, we’ll become aware of old emotional patterns via contraction in the body and in our breath patterns. The techniques you’ll learn, help to free deep tension and the energy that can be used to express who you are now, instead of repeating an old story stuck in your body from days gone by.
Because once a pattern is learned – it is accessed automatically and becomes second nature. The body doesn’t differentiate between helpful and unhelpful patterns. Physical contractions and habits are acquired through repetition, and can be undone by consciously practicing new patterns within your body and nervous system.
So in this course...
We move freely…we dance…we share…we learn…we breathe in different ways to release outdated patterns and create new neural pathways in the direction we want to move..
You’ll also have a chance to consider the energy dynamics at play in your life…being in the world requires we animate our internal masculine, while our creative, relational feminine side often becomes relegated – you’ll learn how this masculine/feminine balance can play out in your bodily systems too and how to balance them out.
And you’ll be offered a variety of tools to help reset and regulate your nervous system…from the Conscious Connected Breath – which activates the system to help release deep stored emotional imprints – to calming breath practices designed to nurture and relax you.
You’ll consider what habits, beliefs, and patterns are driving you and have a chance to consciously shift these so they support your vision and direction moving forward.
And you’ll have a 1:1 session with me where you’ll be offered a breath pattern analysis/body mapping and deep experience of Breathwork – with clear next steps via coaching in the session.
As you experience the unique blend of practices that work for you – you’ll have the chance to develop a personalised programme for yourself that will enable you to reset yourself whenever needed.
As you reset…you feel more expansive…your sense of potential grows…you feel more connected to yourself and the world around you…you rise…
Because, does any of this sound familiar?

- Your body feels tense, tight, uncomfortable, or hurts in places…
- You have tried talking therapy, yet your body is still telling you something’s wrong…
- Maybe there has been loss or grief in your life…
- You feel numb..
- You find yourself over eating..
- You are experiencing psychosomatic symptoms..
- You’ve experienced trauma…
Just imagine for a moment...
- Feeling no tension in your body
- Having clarity on certain steps you need to take
- A deep connection to yourself
- More ease in relationships with other people
- A sense of responding over reacting
- Feeling bliss or deep relaxation

Self Care Creation
"Never have we as women in the West had more opportunity, more choice and more freedom.... at the same time with these opportunities come new challenges and distinct difficulties: The demands of life have created unprecedented levels of stress, pressure, disconnect , discomfort and dis-ease in women".
- Michaela Boehm
Why now? Why work with Anna?
I’m Anna, and I felt to create this container to share the transformative potential of Breathwork with you. As a Senior Yoga Teacher with over 10 years experience teaching predominantly calming pranayama (breathwork), I discovering Conscious Connected Breathwork a few years ago during a period of grief. It was nothing short of an awakening…
It was like therapy with no words, and relieved the intense physicality that emotional waves can cause like no other practice I had come across. Plus has brought so much joy and expansion since. I knew I would need to immerse in and share it. Since training in the Inspirational Breathing Method, I have seen it work its myriad of benefits with many 121 and workshop clients - alongside the continuing anchor it provides personally.
Another one of my passions is the medicine of spending time in and holding my own women’s circles and containers over the last 20 years. You may have attended our popular Breathwork Circles and Equinox/Women’s Solstice circles at Shala.
So this is how Reset and Rise was born – a love for Breathwork, combined with a passion for feminine awakening and empowerment. I thrive on sharing this toolkit of practices and ideas with you.
When/where do calls take place? We hold 2 hour sessions each week on Thursday between 6 - 8pm.
The course runs over 6 weeks on zoom.

Course materials and handouts
"I have found the breathwork sessions with Anna to have been profoundly healing & releasing on both a physical and an energetic level. With the full space and time given to me, to really release and to help rebalance both my body and mind. Anna is an incredibly wise, kind and sensitive space holder and healer, giving me a safe, protected space to release and reflect".
- Rachel Holland
"I have seen Anna for some 121 Breathwork sessions. I know what it is to be held in a nurturing container without judgement and she is the real deal. Breath work is a powerful method of meeting emotions and sensations in the body and needs to be done in a way that is not overwhelming - Anna meets this sweet spot. The sessions with touch and in person were particularly nourishing. I have treasured our sessions and her guidance - she just knows how to hold you. So thankful for her gentle presence".
- Jo Miller
"My first breathwork session with Anna was so freeing! The instruction that she gave was superb, whilst allowing me a safe space to tune into my intuition and find the joy and peace I was looking for. The breathing was very different to what I was used to with my yoga practice, but once I got the hang of it, I was able to really find the rhythm and get lost in the endorphin bliss! I will definitely be looking further into Breathwork and look forward to being led in future sessions by Anna".
