what I offer
A Breathfulness Intensive Session
individual session - 1 hr
During a Breathfulness Intensive session you will experience deep harmonized breathing. The total time for the session will take about 1 hour depending on what issues will come up during a session. There is an active breathing part of about 35 minutes and usually a 10 to 15 minutes meditative period. You will lie in a bed fully clothed and I guide you in the breathing technique and facilitate the process by using music, acupressure techniques as well as using affirmations and sound. Emotional releases are possible and many clients feel much lighter when they leave then when they came.
Before and after the session I coach you on the issue(s) that you would like to work on. As a coach I will assist you in finding the answers to your personal questions from within by using different coaching techniques as well as the deep breathing.
In order for the breathing technique to really have an effect it is important to practise it at home and I will give you some homework practises to start doing on a daily basis. After about 4-6 sessions you will be able to do a full session at home by yourself.
What I ask of you is a commitment to register for 3 sessions (once a week a session) as this will enable you to go deeper and experience the real benefits of Breathfulness harmonised breathing.
6 group sessions - 2.5 hrs
I offer the Breathfulness Program for people who would like to become more aware of the way they breathe and explore more about breath before starting a full session. You will go from awareness to expansion of your breath in 6 steps. The program is done with a group of people (minimum is 4) so there will be also lots of possibility to share experiences, laugh and cry and have a lot of fun.
The program has 6 meetings of 2,5 hours and each meeting has a theme and different exercises and meditations built around that theme.
The themes of the 6 steps are:
Discovering (becoming aware of how you breathe now);
Basis (to feel the basis of your breath and the basis of your life);
Making contact (you will make contact via your breath with your whole body);
Relaxing (to experience that the breath brings relaxation);
Full scope (experience of a bigger (and maximum) scope of your breath);
Connecting (all 5 steps come together make).

Reiki is a beautiful healing art. It offers beneficial, calming, balancing and stress reducing effects.
It is a wonderful complementary modality in a personal wellness or healing program. During a Reiki session the client is fully clothed while comfortably reclining on a massage table. I use specific hand positions on your body. And then I transmit healing energy.
A session is pleasant and relaxing and is most often utilized for one’s own personal wellbeing.

My name is Ingrid van ‘t Hof and I moved to Uganda, Africa in 1998 from the Netherlands.
Over the years I have had different employments in development work to assist the disadvantaged but I also went on a ‘development journey’ of my own.
I encountered certain issues within myself and felt I needed to work on them. In that time I lived in Uganda and there were not a lot of possibilities for personal development workshops so I read a lot of personal development books and I did some yoga and meditation with a small group of people whom I met there.
Until the year 2010, when I came in touch with Breathfulness.
That changed a lot...
