Breathe awareness is self awareness. How often do you notice your breathing pattern? Breathing is an automatic function of the body. It is controlled by the respiratory center of the brain. Your breathing pattern changes whether you are awake or sleep.
The changes can be subtle or obvious. When we inhale slowly and deeply, it calms our nervous system. When we are stressed, our breathing pattern changes as a part of the flight or fright response.
Through inhalation and exhalation, the primary role of breathing is to absorb oxygen and expel carbon dioxide.
Although breathing is involuntary, we can also control our breath by the simple practice of pranayama which means breath control. Ancient practice and medical studies have shown that controlled breathing is greatly beneficial for relaxation and stress management.
Breathe Deep Within teaches concious breathing with guided meditation to help deepen your practice and have a better relationship with your breath. Simply find peace of mind for good health, and wholeness in a chaotic world. Your breath reflects your current state of well-being. It indicates how you are functioning day-to-day physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Breath is the essence of balance.
Go from shallow breathing, known as fright, flight, freeze, and collapse, to deep conscious breathing that have healing restorative properties. Proper breathing increases oxygen in the blood and body vital for optimal health.
Meditation bridges the body and mind to bring you into the present moment. To harmonize your system that will enable you to remain calm in a fast pace world.
With regular practice, you will experience the benefits of meditation. It allows you to simply relax, release stress and tension from the body, and calm the mind.

Sound healing is an ancient practice that stimulates the mind into deep relaxation. Tonal frequencies bring the body into a state of vibrational harmony. It is a healing modality that permeates our system bringing it back into balance. Soothing sound vibrations help to clear energetic blocks and boost your overall health.

I teach simple mindfulness techniques so you don't overthink how to breathe and relax. You can use these modalities as a tool to improve your health and have a new way of living.
My holistic approach creates a warm environment that opens a space for each person to feel comfortable meditating, which allows them to let go and be in the present moment.
As an artist, I love working with children. I teach them how to relax, use their creative instincts, enjoy being in the moment of creating art, and embrace their natural artistic expression.

I find the focused breathing exercises most helpful. Breath-holding has been a personal challenge for me, so having several specific exercises that I utilize daily has been life-altering.
I thank the lovely Ladonna for her work and encourage others to check out her class.

-Dr. Anne Ness, DNP, RN, Certified Aromatherapy Practitioner, and Reiki Master
I have been a student of meditation and breathwork since the 1970s. Your unique style and intention have elevated my awareness of my own breath and have enabled me to go deeper in meditation than ever before. The exercises are so simple, I find myself defaulting to them throughout my day and using the techniques to help put me to sleep. Your classes are bringing me peace and focus In these stressful times.
-Wendy Farley, Healer, Entrepreneur
Since my first class, I've made it a priority to make time for this meditation session as it's a better way to unwind from my busy week and go into my weekend. LaDonna starts by facilitating several breathing activities and then moves the class into a guided meditation. Each time I've attended she changes up the activities so that it's not the same thing each week. Additionally, she models and allows for questions. While meditation is a sacred practice and should be treated as such when something is funny we can all laugh and get back on track. I've found this space to be a positive and affirming environment and I'm excited to continue on my inward journey. Each week I've invited a friend or two because of the value it's already added to my life. I'm compelled to share my fortune. Additionally, LaDonna was able to see and confirm some truths about me that I've always wondered about. For example, I've always thought that I was an empath and she shared this with me without any prompting from me. She has given me so much insight into me as I start on this journey. -Christina Ashford, Jewelry Designer of Tina Dionne Fashion
