The format of the class:

The first hour of the workshop begins calmly with meditations, guided breathing exercises and/or discussions around a theme of the day. Then the energy increases in the second hour when Susan will explain the technique and the Breathwork begins. It’s important to know that this is not a relaxing breathing technique. It is energizing, challenging and powerful and can be physically, emotionally and mentally intense.

How does Breathwork work?

It’s a continuous and steady two-stage breath through the mouth that can last up to 25-30 minutes while lying on the floor. You’ll breathe in a circular and steady rhythm as Susan guides you to release as much as you can — all to an uplifting loud musical playlist. When the active part of the breathing is finished (with a loud scream to the gong), you’ll stay lying on the floor as you return to your normal breath through the nose. Susan will calmly guide you through that part with soft music, silence, Reiki touch, inspiring words and readings. It’s important that you lay there and relax as the energy of the room calms down and your body recharges. Please don’t leave the class until you’ve recharged completely.

What to expect?

Breathwork is purely experiential and no two sessions are alike. Each person has a different experience, so it’s difficult to describe. Be ready for a wave of emotions and energy. Be ready for self-reflection, spirituality, loud music, screams, tears, motivational cheerleading… Be ready to step out of your comfort zone. In the end, the pay-off is huge. It’s possible you’ll feel profound feelings of love, peace, inspiration and gratitude. You might feel more energetic or feel absolutely exhausted after. You might surprise yourself how much you were able to release and even cry! Be prepared for some big physical and also emotional shifts.

Why is Breathwork beneficial?

By doing Breathwork, not only do you release toxins and heal your cells by oxygenating your body, you also give yourself the opportunity to bring up and deal with some very strong emotions and urges: fear, anxiety, doubt and negative and limiting thoughts. By relaxing into these thoughts and getting comfortable with them, you are working through your stress and dissolving your anxiety. By bringing up these feelings and natural reactions and working through them voluntarily, you find that you can handle them when they come up in everyday life. So, come tomorrow open-minded, motivated and ready to let go of some heavy stuff. This class might be exactly what you need right now.

SOME REMINDERS:

~ Wear comfortable layers of clothes and socks (if you get hot or cold).

~ Try to come with a mostly empty stomach. Breathwork is difficult with a full stomach.

~ Bring a notebook and pen if you’d like to take notes.

~ The studio will provide yoga mats, eye masks and blankets. 

~ Please bring extra blankets if you tend to get cold.

Le format de l’atelier :

La première heure de l'atelier commence calmement par des méditations, des exercices de respiration guidée et / ou des discussions autour d'un thème du jour. Ensuite, l’énergie augmente dans la deuxième heure lorsque Susan expliquera la technique et que le Breathwork commence. Il est important de savoir que ce n’est pas de la relaxation, mais un défi physique, mental et émotionnel. C’est énergisant, stimulant et puissant et peut être très intense.

Comment fonctionne le Breathwork?

C’est une respiration en deux temps qui peut durer jusqu’à 25-30 minutes en position couchée sur le sol. Vous allez respirer à un rythme circulaire et régulier pendant que Susan vous guide pour libérer autant que vous le pouvez, le tout avec la musique entraînante et très forte. Lorsque la partie active de la respiration est terminée (avec un grand cri au gong), vous restez allongé sur le sol lorsque vous retrouvez votre respiration normale par le nez. Susan vous guidera calmement à travers cette partie avec de la musique douce, le silence, la touche Reiki, des paroles inspirantes et des lectures. Il est important que vous restiez allongé et que vous vous détendiez pour que votre corps se régénère. Ne quittez pas la classe avant d'avoir complètement rechargé et relaxé votre corps.

Quoi attendre?

La respiration est purement expérientielle et aucune session ne se ressemble. Chaque personne a une expérience différente, il est donc difficile à décrire. Soyez prêt pour une vague d'émotions et d'énergie. Préparez-vous à l’introspection, à la spiritualité, à la musique forte, aux cris, aux larmes, au « cheerleading » de Susan… Soyez prêt à sortir de votre zone de confort. En fin de compte, le gain est énorme. Il est possible que vous ressentiez de profonds sentiments d’amour, de paix, d’inspiration et de gratitude. Vous pourriez vous sentir plus énergique ou complètement épuisé après. Vous pourriez vous surprendre à quel point vous avez pu libérer et même pleurer! Préparez-vous à de gros changements physiques et émotionnels.

Pourquoi le Breathwork est-il bénéfique?

En travaillant la respiration, non seulement vous libérez des toxines et guérissez vos cellules en oxygénant votre corps, mais vous vous donnez également la possibilité d’élever et de gérer des émotions et des envies très fortes: peur, anxiété, doute et pensées négatives et limitantes. En vous détendant dans ces pensées et en vous mettant à l'aise, vous évacuez votre stress et dissolvez votre anxiété. En évoquant ces sentiments et ces réactions naturelles et en les résolvant volontairement, vous constatez que vous pouvez les gérer quand ils se présentent dans la vie quotidienne.

Alors, venez demain motivé, prêt à lâcher prise et avec l’esprit ouvert. Cette classe pourrait être exactement ce dont vous avez besoin maintenant.

On vous rappelle de…

~ Portez des vêtements confortables et de chaussettes (si vous avez chaud ou froid).

~ Essayez de venir avec l'estomac généralement vide. C’est difficile de faire le Breathwork avec le ventre plein.

~ Apportez un cahier et un stylo si vous souhaitez prendre des notes.

~ Le centre fourni des tapis de yoga, des masques pour les yeux et des couvertures.

~ Apportez un plaid supplémentaire si vous avez tendance à avoir froid.

Spiritual coach, breathwork guide, Reiki master and workshop leader, Susan Oubari is 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. 

American by birth and international at heart, since 1990 Susan has lived in Milan, Casablanca, Paris, and Vancouver. Armed with resilience, adaptability, and raw ambition, Susan has held a number of coveted positions during her 27-year career in the fashion industry: Art/Fashion Director, Photographer Agent, Television Journalist and Personal Stylist. She’s worked at fashion companies like Italian Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Stella McCartney, Neiman Marcus, and Nordstrom, while collaborating alongside celebrities such as Monica Bellucci, Spike Lee, Peter Lindbergh and Dennis Hopper. 

Susan’s spiritual journey began in 2005 in Milan when she discovered Reiki. Contrary to her high-functioning “perfect” appearance, the stress and demands of her career were taking over her life.

“One day I woke up and felt like a cliché. I was 36, I had everything… the great marriage, super kids and the dream job.  But I was depressed and burnt out. My husband and kids were feeling it too. It wasn’t healthy. I didn’t realize that happiness had to come from me, and not from my external identity. It was time to learn about myself,  to learn what was working and what wasn’t.” ~ Susan Oubari

Susan had already tried conventional routes to healing such as medicine, nutrition, sport and talk therapy. But it took only one Reiki session for her to understand that this was what she needed. She noticed positive results immediately. Over time, and with practice, Reiki allowed her to get to the source of her stress, to recalibrate what she valued and to gain confidence and peace of mind. Family-life improved exponentially, and she also was able to grow in her career, while finally being happy. She knew very early on that not only would she be a life-long student of Reiki, but that she would help others.

She began attending assorted workshops and training sessions such as Mindfulness and Motherpeace Tarot. She read voraciously, committing herself to the quest of healing. When she encountered a technique that enhanced her perspective or aided to her overall well-being, she dove in to become an expert. In 2011, Susan opened her own Reiki studio in Paris and in Vancouver. Today Susan is a Usui/Holy Fire II Karuna Reiki® Master and a Professional Member of The International Center for Reiki Training.

Last year, after a profound transformational experience during a Breathwork class in Los Angeles, Susan got hooked to Breathwork. It was what was missing in her healing toolbox and in her daily practice. Susan’s most gratifying work today is Breathwork because it has so many naturally therapeutic benefits and anyone can do it. Breathwork brings up emotions like pain, tears, doubt and negative feelings but it also allows you to let go of them and make space for joy and peace of mind. She was trained under Jon Paul Crimi and completed his Breathwork Teacher Training Intensive in Los Angeles.

Retiring from the fashion industry in 2017, Susan is now back in Paris where she opened her studio in Saint-Germain-des-Près and dedicates all of her time to helping others live better lives. Combining Reiki, Breathwork, Mindfulness and spiritual coaching, she offers private sessions remotely with international clients and in person for individuals and couples. With her signature class, ‘Breathe in Paris,’ Susan Oubari is the first to bring Breathwork to France, and also to Morocco and Lebanon where she’s held Pop-Up classes. 

Approachable, charismatic and determined, Susan is inspiring people all over the world to use their breath better while also teaching them the tools to live more fulfilling and peaceful lives. Susan wants to show them the path, as sharing this knowledge is an integral part of her daily practice.
