After a long career in fashion, Susan Oubari is a spiritual coach, breathwork guide, Reiki master, workshop leader, and the founder of ‘Breathe in Paris.’ Since 2011, in her private practice she has helped clients around the world overcome anxiety, self-doubt, stress, depression, lack of energy and procrastination. She believes that Breathwork, especially when combined with Reiki and Mindfulness, is the key to well-being, good health and inner peace. Susan created ‘Breathe in Paris’ based on her own experiences and eccentric background, with the intention to reach out to more people through her group classes and workshops.
Rebecca Leffler is an author, journalist and consultant who, after a long career in entertainment as France Correspondent for The Hollywood Reporter and film critic on French TV network Canal, traded the red carpet for the yoga mat and champagne for green smoothies. She’s the author of “Green Glam & Gourmande,” “Green Glam & Happy,” “Green Glam Attitude” and “Le Nouveau Manuel de la Cuisine Végétale.
In this workshop Susan and Rebecca will begin by talking about the importance of self-care and healthy living. It’s not JUST about what you eat, it’s also about how you live your life, how you breathe and what’s your attitude. Then Susan will explain the breathwork technique and and what to expect. Breathwork is a general term used to describe any type of therapy that uses breathing exercises to improve mental, physical, and spiritual health. The actual Active Breathing segment of the class - which lasts 30 minutes - can result in an intense physical, mental and emotional release. So, she’ll be there to inspire you, to hold your space and to take you on a guided journey… all set to uplifting music.
Please note that this is not a relaxing meditation breathing class. On the contrary, it’s tough work, with loud-ish music and lots of positive energy!
In fact Susan says: “Breathwork is purely experiential and no two sessions are alike. The energy is different, the music is different, I am different! Each person has a different experience, so it’s difficult to describe. But one thing is guaranteed, you’ll feel completely different than how you felt when you came in. Be prepared for some big physical and also emotional shifts.”
Wear comfortable clothes, bring an open mind and let’s all have an inspiring and fun morning together!
It’s suggested you don’t eat a few hours before you take the class.
The Breathwork class will be followed by a mini cooking demonstrating and tasting of healthy* smoothies and snacks by Rebecca Leffler. (*vegan, gluten-free, sugar free)
