Breathwork: Powerful Self Care in Limited Time with Amy Kuretsky

Yoga Magic

Ashley chats with Amy Kuretsky about the healing modality of breathwork. Amy is a breathwork facilitator and a wellness coach for mind, body, and business. Her work is focused on helping radical business owners thrive in the luminal space between work and life. She believes that the health of our physical and emotional bodies are inextricably tied to the health of our businesses and when we work in the overlap we can build businesses that are heart centered and healing both individually and for the collective. Ashley and Amy get in depth on how Amy came into healing work due to her personal medical and health experiences (during her Saturn return no less), how astrology and breathwork go hand in hand, what a typical breathwork session with her looks like, when and why you would benefit from performing breathwork with a guide, why healing is political, the disconnection between medicine and the body, and much more.Amy believes that when we’re internally stuck, we’re externally stuck so she helps women, gender non-conforming, and trans business owners move stuck energy, emotions, and old stories from the body with breathwork. Breathwork opens your creative and intuitive channels. It invites in the trust, clarity, growth, evolution, success, and more that you desire and it allows deeper relationships with your heart, your body, and your business.

036 | Stepping into bigger business results through breathwork with Amy Kuretsky

One Simple Shift

I talk a lot about self-care because I believe taking care of yourself is absolutely essential to taking care of your business. I mean, let’s be real—in most cases, you ARE the business. But too often, I hear business owners tell themselves the story that they simply don’t have the time or money to invest in that kind of daily practice right now. So today we’re chatting about breathwork, an incredible way to connect with your intuition, work through stuck emotions that are holding you back in your business (like fear and self-doubt!), and unleash your potential in a whole new way. If you’re someone who feels like your own needs are constantly falling to the back burner while trying to get business results (but still not seeing the ones you want!) then this conversation around how health fuels hustle is for you.-Check out the show notes here!-So many business owners who are feeling stressed and overwhelmed are quick to tell me that they simply don’t have time for a daily self-care practice. And yet, as soon as we start working together, all of that shifts. Together, we do the thought work necessary for them to view self-care as an asset to their business and start thriving in both work AND life (because I deeply believe you can have BOTH!). If you’re struggling to calm the chaos in your head and would love some strategic coaching to uncover the one mindset shift that will make the biggest difference to you, then you’re absolutely going to want to join me for my FREE Stressed to Success coaching call. Together, we’ll clear the mental clutter and uncover the mindset shift that will make the biggest difference for you, so you can start taking the RIGHT actions, consistently, and start saying “no” to the things that aren’t bringing in results. Head over to amandadennelly.com/freecall to book. I do a limited number of these each week, so get over there and book yours today! See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
