“You can’t breathe yourself out of a dysregulated Nervous System”

– Kelly Hale

SO may people attempt to use breathing exercises to dial down stress and reach a parasympathetic (peaceful) state. But many times they are just creating more stress IN their nervous system.
​​​​​​​​
What they don’t realize is that they are often stuck IN a cycle of Fight, Flight, Freeze. Their survival reflexes are IN the forefront when they should be hanging out IN the background ready for when real danger arises. ​​​​​​​​

No amount of breathing is going to dial down those survival reflexes.​​​​​​​​

But here’s the cool thing: when you nourish the nervous system with simple developmental movements you dial down the survival response. Then you can access organic breathing patterns and INvite IN the calming parasympathetic state. ​​​​​​​​

Topics covered IN this INteractive workshop:

Breath & Development & the Nervous System

Why Chronic Survival Mode is limiting your breath & what to do about it
The DiaphragmS & why the respiratory diaphragm shouldn’t work alone
Empowering Breath through Movement
eMOTIONs & Breath: Situations that “take your breath away” and the connection of lungs to Grief
Simple rituals to Empower Breath IN everyday life & beyond

If we haven’t met… I’m Kelly.

I’m an Occupational Therapist and Nervous System Regulation expert.
After many years my overachieving, perfectionistic lifestyle caught up with me and affected my health. I tried meditation, but I couldn’t sit still or quiet my racing thoughts, and inevitably felt like a failure, leaving each session scolding myself to “Try HARDER!”

But then around 2006, I realized that “trying harder” may not actually be the answer…

What if, instead of beating myself up, I extended the same grace to myself that I gave to my clients and patients daily?

That was when I realized, I needed to find a form of “meditation” that resonated with my lifelong love of movement. Did a program like this even exist?!

As it turns out, it didn’t. This realization led me on a quest to create a form of meditation aligned with my love for movement. Combining over 20 years of professional experience with my studies of nervous system regulation, I crafted a unique method fusing OT, Brain Gym, Pilates, and Reflex Integration.

This journey transformed my life. By tapping into the Brain + Body connection, I was able to achieve from a place of EASE. Eager to share my discovery, I introduced my method to clients, witnessing profound shifts in just a few weeks.

By request, I’ve created this workshop to help you breathe easily throughout life’s ups-and-downs.
