“Yesterday I had a chance to experience breathwork for the first time. I felt so many emotions as we did this energy work. Fear, grief, sadness, laughter, joy, comfort. I felt safe enough to open up about things that I tell my journal. Afterwards I felt calm and ready to heal even more. I’m sure that I will be back to continue pouring into my growth and my healing as a Black woman.”

“I left the breathwork session feeling lighter and much better about the things that didn’t pan out for me in 2018, and clearer about my intentions for the new year. It felt good to release pent up energy that I didn’t even realize I’d been holding in my body.”

"...I am so grateful to you for offering the 150 low-cost slots because this experience was my first ever doing breathwork and it definitely made an impact that it was within a room full of Black women doing it with me. having access to these sessions throughout the last year of my undergrad experience has helped me to feel a lot more secure and grounded within myself..."
