Learn how to ‘breathe with purpose’ in this uniquely powerful and moving 2-hour workshop (held in English) led by Breathwork and Reiki Master, Susan Oubari. Straight from Los Angeles, Susan is introducing Breathwork to Paris with her concept “Breathe in Paris” (with Pop-Ups already in Casablanca and Beirut). Breathwork is the latest self-improvement tool for athletes, actors, professionals, fashionistas, yogis… non-believers and believers… you name it. It’s for anyone who wants to create more balance and harmony in their body and mind. This workshop is for you if you want to release stress, increase physical performance and/or just simply live better.
The workshop begins calmly with meditations, guided breathing exercises and discussions around Reiki and breathing. Then the energy increases in the second hour when the Two-Stage Pranayama breathing begins. You breathe as Susan guides you to unload as much as you can — all to an incredible musical playlist.
Breathwork is purely experiential and no two sessions are alike. 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.
Mixing Reiki with Breathwork, this is a powerful workshop for exploration, discovery, healing, and personal growth. Working with the breath enables you to take better care of yourself and release beliefs and patterns that no longer serve you. Most people leave breathwork sessions feeling clearer, calmer, more content and relaxed.
Susan skillfully provides a space in her classes where everyone feels comfortable and can challenge themselves safely, whether they are beginners or more experienced yogis. She hopes her classes encourage more awareness, so people can connect more mindfully with their bodies, each other and our environment.
It’s suggested you don’t eat for a few hours before class.

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.
