A little about me... Healing didn’t happen because I started doing yoga, meditating, eating better, or working with an energy healer. Healing started when I began to choose love over fear, nourishment over neglect, and forgiveness over shame.
Pain is pain is pain. Physical, emotional, spiritual. Here to wake us up. To pry open our eyes and give us the opportunity to face our fears with love and compassion. It manifests in sneaky ways. Disguising emotional pain as physical pain and vice versa. The more we avoid it, the more it will scream and kick before it pins us down, demanding our attention in very, very uncomfortable ways.
But these moments however long or short are opportunities to heal our lives.
I’ve had to re learn this lesson a few times over the years...To not hide, to honor my true desires, to respond to physical, emotional, and spiritual pain with love and compassion rather than rage. To slow down enough to really listen.
About breathwork... Our bodies are designed to heal themselves. They are constantly working to protect us, heal us, and keep us alive.
When we start to let go the weight of our limiting beliefs, fear, grief, anger, etc., we start to raise our bodies’ energy frequency. When we are operating at a high frequency, our bodies are able to heal themselves in miraculous ways.
Breathwork is a self healing tool that works to let go and tranfer stuck energy from the emotional body. As we clear the emotional body, our reality radically shifts, and we begin to heal on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. This Breathwork method is down lying down on a soft and comfortable surface. We breathe in and out through the mouth, filling the lungs with as much air as possible. As we do this, we oxygenate the blood, release endorphins and feel good hormones, and balance the nervous system. The breathing is done at a rhythmic pace for 20 minutes followed by a deep guided meditation. It is common to feel intense emotions surface during this time, as I like to call “emotional purging”. Common after effects are feelings of peace, clarity, intense emotional relief, pain relief, deeper connection to higher self, visions, vivid dreams, and an over all sense of calm.
Breathwork is for anyone, beginner or non, with the intuitive knowing that there is a deeper root to why they’re feeling stuck in life or on a cycle of emotion and/or physical pain.
Satya Satya is the second of the five yamas in yoga. It’s the Sanskrit word for truthfulness. Practicing satya has been essential in my healing. Being truthful with myself is something I’ve struggled with most of my life. Speaking my mind, standing up for myself, projecting my voice, asking for what I needed, and simply being myself was daunting, exhausting, petrifying. This fear, for so long, held me back in life from fully experiencing joy.
If you’re moving through a difficult time in your life, know that you are not alone. If you’re ready to lead with love, align with your highest and most authentic self, and live in joy, join me on this journey. We are our own healers, but we are in this together.

Notes to Self
What if I just rode this wave like a feather rides the wind? Will it carry me safely home back to myself?
What if I just let it be like all things in nature? Will letting go allow this life to flow to the rhythm of it’s authentic pace?
If I loosen my grip and let myself slip into this abyss of uncertainty will I gracefully and effortlessly Find freedom?
Stay awake With me, for me In the most peaceful moments of the night So rarely spent, for we sleep through it throughout our entire lives as if it’s insignificant Or maybe we’re just conditioned to the routine So stay awake with me, for me together in the center of stillness In a world that’s slowed down to a pace we can keep up with so quiet, we can hear the earth breathe So listen while it lasts Take a closer look at what we look away from the beauty within our darkest moments
So I close my eyes and study the kaleidoscope in my mind and I’m reminded of what beauty we find in darkness when we let go the heavy weight of fear and uncertainty
Love is watching someone grow Into their truest forms. And to grow, we must let go The weight of our old selves So I’ll keep my gaze set North, and shed layers of winter coats And follow the path that stays lit By your love. And so I let go, and grow forward toward the fiery warmth of your light, leading me safely back home to myself.
Be still, Love Just ‘be Love’ If we keep moving to find, We might never be found
“There almost isn't enough words to express my experiences so far with Sarah Cohen and her Breathwork Practice. I've had the pleasure of being a participant in two group sessions and one private session to date. My experience far exceeded anything I could have expected to feel or gain. I have been in a place for the past year and beyond that is unlike any hurt or pain I have ever felt. In addition, I never allowed myself to really feel or heal from my past, just carrying along all the negatives all this time from one relationship into the other. Rather than address my feelings, I've been suppressing them. I had zero healing skills; just my own method of coping skills. In reality, it wasn't coping at all. It was avoidance. My first session with Sarah was the least intense, meaning the effects have only increased for me with each session, but all amazing, powerful, impactful and life altering. During the first session, the intensity of what my body felt was incredible, but more so, what my heart felt. There was such a release of emotions. Emotions that had been stored deep inside. I left that session feeling different for lack of a better word. I slept that night for 6.5 hours. I never usually get more than 4 at best. My body felt different allowing it to rest. During the second session, the intensity of what I felt in the first session was multiplied. My body felt energized, alive, as if I could feel the blood pumping through my veins. It felt heavy and grounded into the earth. And the meditation that Sarah incorporates in with the breathwork has allowed me to start a process of forgiveness, letting go and actual healing, which has been extremely difficult for me. The third session has been my most intense, impactful session to date. It pulled emotions I have been carrying in my body that I wasn't even fully aware were there. Sarah's practice is helping me to feel all the things I packed away that settled inside my body and have manifested itself into gut problems, clarity issues, insomnia, focus issues, memory issues, lack of motivation, unforgiveness, and anger among a bunch of other negative feelings all rolled into one. For the first time ever, I'm not learning to cope, but rather learning how to forgive, let it go and heal. Truly Heal! and I'm so excited for what this means for my future. Sarah and her Breathwork Practice are going to be instrumental in my full healing and I'm so excited about what that will mean for my future.” -Michelle
“Sarah is one of the most amazing yoga instructors. She is very kind and patient with her yogis. I have also had the pleasure of participating in 2 different Breathwork classes, what an experience! It was one of the most INTENSE things I have ever done. Sarah has the softest voice that is very calming and always makes me feel at ease, especially during the Breathwork sessions. I look forward to her classes each week. She definitely gets ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ from me!” -Jenn
“When I first started working one-on-one with Sarah I had low expectations. I claimed I wasn’t a “yoga person.” I had always worked out aerobically, running, biking, hiking, horseback riding—endorphin highs came from competition and pushing myself against a clock. But as I practiced with Sarah I found a deep sense of calm that hadn’t been available to me before. Flexibility was gained (a work in progress!), stress management felt back in my control and, I know this sounds odd, but I felt I tapped into a new kind of happiness. Sarah is such an insightful teacher, gentle and clear and patient. She talks about “holding space” and that’s what she did for me, brilliantly and with a rare generosity, that allowed me to walk into a new definition of strength.” -Elaina
