Impressions after coaching
Realicé con Birgit una serie de sesiones de Breathwork mezcladas con terapia los pasados meses. Estoy muy agradecida de haber entrado en contacto con ella y tener la oportunidad de crecer en estas sesiones. Me proveyó de una serie de herramientas esenciales para el día a día, una visión externa e incisiva de mi misma, una entrada en una etapa más consciente en mi vida. Breathwork me permite hacer paradas importantes en mi semana y entrar en un espacio de meditación sanador, de una manera que no abordo en otros formatos.
Birgit posee características únicas que me hacen conectar con ella. De hecho, las dos estamos en contacto con el mundo académico y realizamos tareas de conceptualización frente a pantalla gran parte de nuestro tiempo. Puede por esta razón, el lenguaje usado y las técnicas que propone me hacen avanzar mucho más allá; conecto con ella tanto con el juego y la sensibilización del cuerpo ,como con entrenar la mente con sutileza.
Recomiendo plenamente realizar sesiones con Birgit.

Regular Breathing Practice
I have been doing the breathing practice over a year now and already after one month and a half I saw impressive benefits to my mental health. The breathing session alone was able to improve my relaxation, self-awareness, consciousness and mood. It feels like a training exercise with remarkable benefits in mindfulness (exploring new levels of awareness and attention, reduced anxiety, coping and acceptance) and physical health (muscular relaxation, physical awareness, increased stamina). The benefits continue throughout the week following the session, as I become more aware whenever I become tense, restless, anxious, tired and overwhelmed, which helps me return to a balanced / centred self and cope better with daily stress and anxiety. I strongly recommend joining this practice as this has been a revolutionary experience in my life. Birgit is also a fantastic instructor, with very structured sessions that makes you feel welcome, seen, heard, comfortable and safe regardless if you are doing it for the first time, or are a regular participant in the sessions. Moreover, she takes the time and care to inform participants about the science behind the effects and provide helpful sources for those interested more about the content of mindfulness.

Impressions after course sessions
“It has truly been a wonderful journey attending most of your sessions and I have been able to reduce my anxiety to a great extent. I listen to your guided meditation every evening to relax and your voice has a soothing effect. I am truly grateful for this experience.”
– Jan., India
“I am really grateful and glad to know you 🙂 It was really rough at first, but then I found there is a message from me to me that I need to get it. What you said is the best sign for me that I am stepping on the right path and motivation to go on. Thanks for the meditations. The loveliness you radiate is precious.”
– S., Sweden
“I felt like I tele-transported today. (…) I felt like I’m being pulled towards some yellow light. And then I felt like I was flying through dense white clouds with subtle pinks and oranges. Then the scene changed completely, I was a floating again, I’m not sure where but it had beautiful, warm yellow lights as tiny dots. And I there was a point when I could feel energy travelling through my body. There was a point where I zoned out on breathing. When I realized I wasn’t breathing, I wasn’t struggling or gasping for breath, I simple resumed. I am a different kind of happy today.”
– J., US
“I honestly felt super relaxed by the end of the breathing/meditation session (much needed!) and you made everyone feel welcome. The time management presentation reminded me to spend time offline (and I have done so today – I’ll try to remember to note that in my daily survey). I also loved that the participant group were all super kind on the Zoom chat.”
– K., Researcher, UK
“I’ve struggled with confidence for a very long time. It’s a subject that I’ve brought up recently to address — particularly with the question: how DO I build up my confidence? The guided meditation offered a few things to do, and I look forward to seeing if it works for me. These guided meditations are a gem to use as a source of reflection. I ponder about something new each time I listen to it and learn something new.”
“I did the meditation in the morning, then the breathing exercises after work and then went to my new sports/acrobatics class. The fact that I am so engaged in learning something new, that also stretches my body in a different way and has a completely new technique, just made me soooo happy. I was present, felt tired but very happy, had a nice and relaxed sleep, and felt very energized.”
Impressions after taster sessions
I’ve been waking up with more energy the days after, it is amazing! During the session, I’ve relaxed a lot and learned how to read my body better. I love these sessions. Birgit is the best, her voice, her words and the way she guides us through the process is excellent.
– Victoria, Researcher, Finland/Peru
I loved IT. I felt relaxed and alive AT the same time. The following night I had a restful night for the first time in a long time. Very soothing voice, Precise instructions, but not too many. I recommended you to my friends.
Mind-blowing. I really did not expected such a strong physical reaction during the practice. I felt like I was floating after it. Birgit is wonderful. I already recommended it.

i really felt like i connected with my body. i feel calmer compared to before. – Irem Guner, Turkey
My experience was great, I was able to both relax and become self-aware of my body sensations throughout the session. I felt more at peace and centred, which helped me to sleep better. I’ll continue with the practice. She knows exactly when to insert comments throughout the sessions, which facilitated my breathing, especially during the first session. I would definitely recommend it.

I enjoyed it. As happened previously, first it is difficult to focus and abstract from the real world and my body, then I manage to relax and I sometimes dive into an almost-sleep mood. This, together with other mindfulness moments I try to include in my busy agenda, have led me to concentrate on my breathing as a way to release pressure or fall back asleep during the night.
