Breath Work / Pranayama

How often have we heard someone say “Take a deep breath”. Our bodies are composed of the universal elements which are earth, water, fire, air and ether. Air is the vital life force also known as Prana in the yogic world. Prana = life force and yama = control.

Balance, stillness and unlock your inner healing energies

Pranayama uses the breath to direct and expand the flow of prana in our energy channels – the Nadis. Swami Satyananda Saraswati describes the techniques as providing:

“…the method whereby the life force [prana] can be activated or regulated in order to go beyond one’s normal boundaries or limitations and attain a higher state of vibratory energy and awareness.”

Pranayama or breathwork is the ancient science of improving your health by replenishing your prana throughout the body. Most of the common health problems can be healed through regular guided use of pranayama. 

The goal of pranayama is to connect your body and mind. It also supplies your body with oxygen while removing toxins. This is meant to provide healing physiological benefits.

What’s more… the activity requires no equipment!

Nature’s simple way of cleansing the body from the inside

A few health benefits of pranayama are below:

  • Improve sleep
  • Enhance blood flow
  • Clearing of toxins
  • Improve organ function
  • Eradicate disease and pain
  • Stronger immune system
  • Rejuvenation of the body
  • Clear skin
  • Reduction in joint pain
  • Balanced emotions
  • Better mental well-being
  • Increase your stamina and internal strength
  • Lower your blood pressure
  • Enhance cognitive function

In The Heart of Yoga, Desikachar explains that when we are unwell, feeling stuck, depressed or lacking in drive we have too little prana within the body – we have more of it outside our body instead. The reason for this is because the prana in the body is forced out by something else, something that does not belong there which he calls “rubbish”. When we practise pranayama we are clearing this “rubbish” from our body and so allowing more and more prana to be within the body instead of outside it.


When we practise pranayama the veil is gradually drawn away from the mind and there is growing clarity. The mind becomes ready for deep meditation” (yoga sutra 2.52)


Pranayama techniques focus on one or more of the four parts of the breath:

  1. Inhalation (puraka)
  2. Internal retention (antara-khumbaka)
  3. Exhalation (rechaka)
  4. External retention (bahya-khumbaka)

 The exhalation is said to be the most important part of the breath – only when we can exhale and empty fully can we take a full new inhalation.


How to book a session with me

  • A phone call or video call is carried in full to go through the ethics and see your expectations. If everything aligns then we can arrange a mutually convenient time for our session. 
  • Please allow approx 1 to 1.5 hours for our session.  
  • I always carry out a medical consultation prior to the massage and get you to sign and officially agree to the therapy. Once I’m happy with the consultation, the session may commence. 
  • A 50% deposit is required prior to attending the massage session. 
  • I do not see anyone under the influence of alcohol or drugs. A massage is not recommended to anyone who is pregnant and if postpartum must be after 6 weeks. They should not have any skin problems, contagious disease, fever or acute inflammation.
  • Please ensure you shower before you come and trim/shave the genital area for hygiene and aid in a good flow of energy. 
  • The therapy room is a sacred place which has been cleansed by meditation and spiritual practice, and I expect full respect for this. I request no misconduct or misbehaviour verbally or physically during the session as this will put an immediate stop to our session. The room has subtle lighting and a warm temperature to create an ambient atmosphere with relaxing music and spiritual aromas. I use pure essential oils with a sweet almond oil base which are suitable for most people. 
  • A meditation is carried out to set the intention of the massage.
  • You must drink plenty of fluids after a session to avoid dehydration and dizziness which also aids in blood circulation.



Frequently Asked Questions

Please get familiar with the therapy I provide. A range of commonly asked questions is answered here.


Can you explain what happens in sound healing session?

Whether online or in person… the session is done on the floor where I have a professional massage mattress with freshly washed sheets. The room is fully sanitised before you attend and is also deep cleaned once the session is over. As mentioned, this is a spiritual therapy. 

This therapy is a perfect blend of the principles of Ayurveda and ancient teachings. This makes it a holistic therapy which can penetrate the deepest of blockages within the body and aura. It heals on a physical, mental and psychosomatic level. Each chakra is worked on and balanced to spin at the desired speed and intensity to maintain a healthy body. 

We start with an informal chat, meditation and then sound healing.

Do I have to fill out a medical consent form?

Yes. This is a legal requirement. The medical form goes through lifestyle questions and ends with a consent to the therapy which must be filled out online with the link sent to you once an appointment is booked at least 3 days prior to the session. 

Can I do a same day booking?

No. All sessions must follow the correct protocols of a phone consultation, followed by booking a mutually agreeable date in the diary. My calendars are usually quite booked up so please don’t expect an immediate appointment. 

How long is the session? Can you do shorter sessions?

The session times vary from person to person, they usually last around 1 hour or so, sometimes more. It all depends on what gets released in the session as it’s my responsibility to let you leave balanced. 

Can this therapy help cure previous trauma, other situations like insomnia, etc?

Yes. The therapy is the perfect blend to help to get to the root of situations you may be facing. If you have been subject to trauma, then this will help you to overcome it and move on. Trauma is a deeply rooted topic and can cause a range of imbalances within the body. The good news is, this can be cured through Tantra. 

Can you do massage exchanges? Can I pay you later? Do you need a photographer?

Please don’t embarrass yourselves by asking for massage exchanges as this is a professional therapy and payment can be either made by BACS or cash. I also do not need a photographer and neither can I permit any videos or photos to be taken during our session. 

Can my partner come and watch us? Can you see us as a couple?

Your partner can come for healing with you but there is an additional charge. They cannot come to watch, they would need to be receiving healing too.

Where are you based? Can you do Sound baths elsewhere?

I have a therapy room here in Leicester, Syston and I only see clients here, however if you wish for a sound bath at a commercial space, office, healing space or for a group of people, I am happy to do do this.

Do you see all genders?

Yes. My therapy does not have any boundaries on sexual orientation. 

Do you have shower facilities

Unfortunately, I do not have any shower facilities here. I can provide fresh towels if you wish to freshen up and use the toilets. 

Can I keep my piercings in during the session?

Ideally not,  if possible, it would be perfect if all jewellery, and piercings were removed. Metal causes reactions with the energy flow. 

What do I need to bring to the session?

Please bring your yoga mat, water bottle, towels. 

What is the price of a session? How can I pay you?

The sessions have a fixed price of £70 for 1-1 sessions. You can pay by cash or BACS. There are no discounts offered so please respect this. For couples it is £140.
