Breathwork... a life-changing
“In werewolf movies the ‘silver bullet’ is said to be the action that can take down the monster, once and for all. This is what we want when we heal wounds from our past; a process that can truly lay our demons to rest. If there is a silver bullet for self-improvement work, perhaps it is this - the subtle and powerful art of Conscious Breathing.”
- Nathalia Grace Westmacott
They say love makes the World go round… but really, it does! Once we see clearly that everything we do - or don’t do - has a positive or negative knock-on effect to our brothers and sisters on the Planet, it prompts a natural desire to be a good neighbour. So, as interconnected and interdependent beings in the web of Life, we seek to connect with others lovingly and respectfully & offer reverence and respect to our extended environment - our beautiful home, Planet Earth.
A little bit of history...
First-Breath was founded by Nathalia Westmacott in 2004 to teach conscious breathwork to people seeking personal development and practitioner training. Initially she investigated breathwork to overcome the effects of professional burn-out, which ended her former career in television and film production. A chance encounter with the dynamic Rebirthing teacher and opera singer Christina Artemis, resulted in a decision to commit to a powerful three-year apprenticeship with the Artemis Foundation, specialising in Rebirthing and Transformational Theatre.
During these early years, Nathalia attended every workshop she could find, to learn first hand from the most experienced breathworkers in the World. She evolved a passion for understanding the adverse effects of unconscious imprints, such as unravelling the impact of birth and early infancy trauma. She experienced first-hand how these unconscious memories contributed to the self-esteem issues that ended her former career and created intimacy and trust issues in relationships. Since these processes were invaluable in releasing her from her past, she committed herself to re-training as a teacher and has been devoted to evolving and sharing powerful self-healing methods ever since.
