Breakthrough Breathwork

Breakthrough Breathwork is an experience of support in finding greater clarity, presence and ease. Breathing techniques, guided contemplations, embodiment practices and bodywork serve as catalysts to release and repattern nervous system responses. Each session is designed to support the breather to dislodge old beliefs and patterns that create limit or suffering. When experiencing freedom in the breath and body, new insights and choices can be much more easily accessed in future moments. 

ashley20During this experience, you may experience past memories, emotions, and purifications that may dislodge old habits, patterns and belief structures. It is up to you to create new actions and conscious choices as a result of what you uncover in your session. With Ashley’s support, you will be expertly guided towards greater freedom, clarity and strength to create new patterns and relationships in your life.

Breakthrough Breathwork was launched in Nosara, Costa Rica in May, 2016 as Ashley Ludman graduated her first group of students after a week-long intensive in the method. Since then, the introductory facilitator training has expanded to a 10 day intensive, where she graduated the next group of facilitators in November of 2016.


Since then, Ashley has dedicated her efforts to expand the awareness of Breakthrough Breathwork in Nosara, Costa Rica, New York and North Carolina through private work, group classes and mini-immersions.
