Breathwork for Self Resourcing
Connect with your Breath your Most Powerful Resource
Breathwork for Self Resourcing
(Online or In Person)
Did you know most people only breathe to 20-30% of their lung capacity?
And yet 70% of our body’s detoxification depends on our breathing? (In fact we can literally breathe our weight off!)
While we were all born to know how to breathe, shallow breathing and all kinds of dysfunctional breathing patterns often develop from distressful moments in life, contributing to chronic states of fatigue, anxiety, numbness, lack…..This often reflects in sub-level vitality and difficulties in life.
We can change these non-resourceful states by changing our breathing and expanding our “container” to process life experiences, increase our resilience and connection to our innate joy, peace and wisdom.
This is an introduction to BREATHWORK for self resourcing and the potential for transformative healing. There will be about 30-40% of time in explanation of what it is, how it works, important note on self healing and Q & A.
You will be led through a guided breathing process supported by music and guidance, like in a guided meditation. You will be experience and practise conscious breathing, mindfulness, visualisation, and you can start self practice to RESET your body’s impulses. With conscious practice you can improve your overall performance and presence.
This session is now a pre-requisite to our popular 90-min Guided Healing Breathwork Journey where participants have reported life-changing experiences.
If you choose to join online, there is an option to join for free - so you can try it at no risk.
Before we deep dive into trauma healing with powerful healing breathwork practices, this session helps you to start RESOURCING yourself and to create a SAFE container. BREATH is your most fundamental RESOURCE. It directly impacts not just your physiological state but all aspects of your life experiences. Breathwork facilitated in therapeutic settings can accelerate healing dramatically, bypassing the barrier of the cognitive mind.
About Conscious Breath practice
You can powerfully reset your nervous system simply by changing how you breath.
Overtime, you can effectively reset to your optimal breathing pattern so your body has a new memory for ongoing health and vitality. It does take time to RESET.
Why does our body hold restrictive patterns is due to "frozen" trauma memories. Deep level healing requires energy. Regular practice with guidance can help us to build up our resources while releasing limiting patterns that block our growth and healing.
1. Will I lose conscious control in this session?
- You may experience moments that are similar to hypnosis and you are aware and in control, and this experience is often described by participants as more grounding because of its somatic nature, meaning you are engaging your body and sensations.
2. Is there contraindication in participating in this session?
Everybody has to breathe and what you will learn in this session will benefit everyone.
However please take full responsibility in your participation.
And please inform us if you have following conditions ahead of time so we can offer you more guidance for adaptation.
- Cardiovascular conditions including angina, heart attack, high blood pressure, aneurisms etc

3. Will I get the same experience doing this class on Zoom?
Read our recommendations on setting up your Zoom and how to prepare yourself for getting the most out of the experience.
Some people like the impact of practising it in person with a group, but some may find practising alone in a safe space more private and less distracting.
If the in-person class or private healing is accessible to you, we welcome you to experience in person too. Then you can decide for yourself which format you prefer!
4. Will I get support in processing the experience afterwards?
Certainly. You may want to schedule additional 15 mins to process your experience at the end of the session. While the session includes integration phase, if you would like to talk about your experience and ask question, we welcome you to stay on and do so. You may also want to write down your insights in a journal or draw afterwards.
What Others Say
from some who have practised 90-min Guided Healing Breathwork Journey, the more deep dive version of this 45-min Breathwork introductory session...
I have experienced private breathwork with another experienced practitioner before and the sessions were powerful. The experience with Anita in the group Healing Breathwork Journey with the music, drumming and her specific guidance has taken the experience to a whole new level.
Executive Financial Manager
I got to release some very deep trauma. And some physical pain that has been bothering me for a long time disappeared. I have been feeling light and amazing since. Added bonus: I no longer feel depressed watching the news!
Artist & sustainability fashion consultant
I had my first experience of breathwork in a workshop in California. I am so happy to have found Anita and her amazing team offering this in Hong Kong! The experiences helped me to effectively release emotional tension, and the group environment encouraged me to let go even more.

Anita S K Cheung
Anita Cheung is an experienced health practitioner and transformation specialist since 2005, founder of iLiving (formerly i-Detox) Wellness centre in Hong Kong.
In terms of breathwork facilitation, her work has been mainly informed by Biodynamic Breathwork for Trauma Release, Shamanic Breathwork and Therapeutic Breathwork where she has been trained in. She incorporates what she has observed to work best for herself and most people and her understanding in healing facilitation.
Apart from Breathwork, Anita’s wellness and transformation training spans across multiple modalities including also Nutrition, Bio-resonance, Aromatherapy, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), coaching, AFT (Aroma Freedom Technique), Family/ Systemic Constellation, various energy healing modalities and somatic awareness practices.
She created the unique 6-dimensional approach to total healing practised in iLiving.
Anita’s fascination with the power of breath started before she became a health and personal development professional. Around 2000, she first experienced how changing her breathing pattern healed her chronic adult onset asthma. Subsequently she has also learnt just as one diet does not fit all people and all situation, so does breathing method. She has studied (and is continuing studying) different breathing methods and their effect on people with different body type and trauma holding pattern, and how breathwork synergises with other techniques for creating best results for healing and consciousness evolution.Read more
Important Note to get the best out of your experience:
A. Using Zoom:
- Download from Zoom.us to install the software for free if you do not have to already. Test it by using it with someone to ensure you know how to mute/unmute yourself, turn on/off camera and test the volume and speaker
- On the day, make sure you have good internet connection. You may want to save bandwidth and switch off any connection that is not necessary.
Zoom Registration Process
(If you have registered on this site) You would receive an email confirming your registration with the Zoom link. One hour before the event, you will receive a reminder.
Reach out to us if you do not receive that.
B. Preparing yourself :
Please join only if you can dedicate the time to yourself in a completely safe space undisturbed.
We do not recommend you to join if:
There will be someone next to you who is not participating.
You cannot start at the beginning or if you have to rush off. (Check out our next session.)
You want to be "multi-tasking" in any way.
C. Preparing your space:
You need an area where you can lie down comfortably by yourself. A bed is fine if you do not have a bigger area. If you are lying down on the floor, have a yoga mat (or two) laid out, and something that can keep your whole body warm while you are relaxing (think corpse pose at the end of yoga).
Do not put anything that is easy to break near you (e.g. your glass of water) as you might want to move your body in the session.
If you wish you can diffuse your favourite essential oils, surround yourself with your favourite crystals….any way to create a sacred and safe space.
D. Processing your experience afterwards:
You may want to schedule additional 15 mins to process your experience at the end of the session. While the session includes integration phase, if you want to talk about your experience and ask question, we welcome you to stay on and do so.
