Unity Breathwork in Sayulita is a ‘must-do’ while in Sayulita. There are both private (1:1 and group) and public, Conscious, Connected Breathwork Journeys on offer, as well as Trauma-Informed Breathwork Training. This breathing technique alters your state of consciousness similar to plant-medicine and takes you on an incredibly deep and healing inner journey.
Your facilitator Megan is a doubly certified Facilitator and Teacher with 5 years of experience and an incredible amount of compassion, warmth, and skill. Although Breathwork on its own is arguably the most powerful and empowering healing modality available, Megan further enhances the experience by incorporating supportive touch and Reiki.
Whether you're sharing this experience with your wedding party, bachelor party, partner, family, or simply seeking to elevate your own wellness, this will be an unforgettable and transformative journey that may just change your life!

The Breathwork State
Breathwork is sort of like a marriage between hypnotherapy and plant medicine. However, unlike plant medicine, you don’t need to rely on an outside substance to alter your consciousness, and at all times you remain fully in control of your journey. Also, the facilitator does not dictate in the way a hypnotherapist does – your inner wisdom is the guide. And if emotions or sensations feel too strong, you can simply return to normal breathing at any time.
What Are the Benefits of Breathwork?
Temporarily changes the CO2, oxygen, and Ph levels in the body, which slows down electrical activity in the brain, loosens the grip of the ego, and allows access to subconscious programming (which dictates 98% of thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors)
Can lead to a range of rapid mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical transformations
Oxygenates the body, promotes detoxification, and can leave you feeling energized and refreshed
Ongoing breathwork sessions can help rebalance the nervous system and get a person out of chronic fight, flight or freeze mode
Connects you to your inner wisdom, helps you listen to the messages that come from your body, and can also provide you with new important insights
Allows the opportunity to let go of things that no longer serve you, to heal your inner child, and to release trauma
With a properly trained facilitator, deep somatic healing can occur in a gentle and safe way
It can help to let go of addictions and self-sabotaging behaviors and coping mechanisms
It is an excellent way to make a community out of a group of strangers or acquaintances
Every session is different for every person, and the best thing to do is to let go of expectations and resistance, remain open to whatever wants to arise, and trust that the breath will take you there
It’s often said that one breath session can be more powerful than years of therapy
Some describe this type of breathwork as being ‘re-born.’
Breathwork Is For Everyone & You Don't Need to Be ‘Woo Woo’ to Benefit
There is no skill or training necessary for the breather at all. You don’t have to have a spiritual, religious, or meditative practice to receive its incredible and far-reaching benefits. As long as you follow the breathing technique, Breathwork will work for you! So if you’d like to offer this to a group of friends, family, or your wedding party and you’re worried some people won’t ‘be into it’ - fear not, by the end of the session they will be Believers. In fact, it's usually the biggest skeptics who get ‘dragged’ to the sessions by their loved ones that become the biggest breathwork fanatics!
What Is Breathwork & Is this the Same as Holotropic?
The term Breathwork can create a lot of confusion and some people think it is pranayama, or learning how to breathe optimally in everyday life, or a breathing technique to induce relaxation. But breathwork is none of those things - Breathwork (without a space between breath and work) is the term used to describe all breathing modalities that use a connected or circular breathing technique for the purpose of inducing altered states of consciousness conducive to deep healing and transformation.
Breathwork has exploded in popularity over the past 5 years and it is quickly becoming the ‘New Yoga’. All the modern variants are rooted in Holotropic and Rebirthing Breathwork and they share the technique of not having a pause between the inhale and exhale. Unity Breathwork is very similar to Holotropic breathwork, however, our sessions are more accessible because they are not 6+ hours long.
The Logistics of Unity Breathwork Offerings
I am available for private 1:1 and group sessions online and in Sayulita, Punta Mita, La Cruz, and surrounding areas. If you would like a private session but do not have the space for it, I will provide the space. I also offer weekly public group sessions at various locations in Sayulita and Bucerias. I’m additionally available to facilitate for your retreat. Please message me to find out more.
The Structure, Length, & What to Expect
The Breathwork sessions are typically an hour and a half in total. The circular breathing segment is one hour and in that time you will be breathing while lying down with your eyes closed with carefully curated music to support the journey. I also offer both reiki and supportive touch during the breathing segment (optional and with consent). I will be there to provide a safe container, to coach your breathing, and to help you reach the deepest state possible. However, the breath is the teacher and guide, and it will take you exactly where you need to go for your highest healing.
There is time allocated before the breathwork journey for explaining the technique and how to get the most out of it. And time after, to allow breathers to write down any insights, ground themselves, and share about their experiences if they wish.
Why I Facilitate Breathwork
Prior to discovering circular breathing, I embarked on a fifteen-year healing quest. In that time, I exhaustively explored numerous avenues to release trauma and negative subconscious patterns and cultivate more joy and love in my life.
Although I have great respect for yoga, hypnotherapy, plant medicine, Shamanic healing, nutritional therapy, energy medicine, meditation, EFT, Law of Attraction, life coaching, and everything else that I have studied and utilized on my quest for healing, it was Breathwork that brought about the quickest and most profound transformations.
My first Breathwork session was in Bali. I showed up blindly and with a bit of resistance (‘I don't want to breathe for an hour - how boring😅 ’), and yet I released decades of stored grief in that single session. I was blown away but the power of this type of breathing and knew immediately I had found my calling and that I wanted to dedicate my life to helping others heal themselves with their breath. Since then, I have made it my life's mission to help make Breathwork as widely accessible and popular as yoga.
