About this event
For many of us, our pain is expressed through our breath. We often don't breathe with openness and welcoming of the life force surrounding us. Our breath is an anchor. It’s our connection to the earth and ourselves. Breathwork is an effective psychedelic preparation and integration practice that can significantly enhance your experience before and after a ceremony.
Deep breathing also helps regulate your nervous system so you can sleep better, digest your food more efficiently, and think more clearly. Best of all, it’s free and available to everyone.
By changing the levels of oxygen, C02, and nitrogen in the body, you facilitate a physiological effect that can stimulate and revitalize, helping to move stagnant energy that needs attention. The result is a release of stuck emotions and entering into deep relaxation.
Join us for this facilitated session with Nectara guide Erin Ward that will gently lead you through several powerful breathing techniques that can help you self-repair, gain clarity, and anchor insights along your journey.
Come as you are - we look forward to sharing this conscious breathing experience with you.

How to prepare
Comfort. Make sure you are in a comfortable spot and grab some water before joining.
Ceremony. Approaching the experience as a tiny little ceremony can help you dive deeper into the experience.
Intention. What are you releasing in your life? What are you calling in?
As a little girl, I use to talk to angels. I would pray to them, as well as the saints in my little book, asking for advice, guidance, and support for the people around me. I didn't realize it at the time, but I was beginning my spiritual journey. I was meditating.
When I got to college, I had by then traded in talking to angels for talking to myself - in a very harsh and unsupportive way. It was during my time at NYU that I went into a spiral. It's hard to pull yourself out of the whirlwind of anxiety, self-loathing, and not enough-ness while obsessed with perfection. While chasing an ideal.
In a little studio in NYC, candle-lit and creaky floors, I found yoga asana. I felt safe in my body for the first time in a long time. I cried. I realized that not all angels are invisible, and I began my journey. Soon after I knew that I wanted to be responsible for creating safe space for people to connect with themselves, feel enough, feel whole and beautiful just as they are.
I teach yoga asana, meditation, breathwork, and The Class by Taryn Toomey. The modalities that we decide to explore together are based on what is going to help you thrive. You don't need to change. But there are practices that might help you feel more vibrant, connected, and alive.
