Clarity Breathwork is the most empowering, transformative experience I’ve ever been through in my entire life.

In dealing with my personal experiences of childhood and teenage abuse, severe stress, emotional pain, physical pain, tragedy, and birth trauma, unconsciously over the years it became habitual to repress and bury my experiences and feelings. It finally started to catch up with me. I felt something was very wrong. I tried various types of therapy and so many different holistic modalities to heal like herbs, supplements, osteopathy, homeopathy, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, reiki, and more. Although these things were helpful, none worked permanently or completely.

I knew I was carrying around this awful emotional stuff in my body; but I didn’t have access to it and I wanted it out. Talk therapy never helped me; it made me feel worse. I found Clarity Breathwork by 'accident' - I overheard someone talking about the profound healing experience she had with it during a yoga retreat. I made an appointment that changed my life. My sessions of breathwork led to the complete relief and healing I'd been searching for. I found gold and I had to share it. I took extensive training to become a practitioner myself, so that I could help guide others through it. I attended and assisted at many group retreats, workshops and certifications; this enabled me to develop skills at facilitation of group as well as private sessions, using a variety of complimentary healing modalities. 

If you’ve experienced intense stress, emotional pain or any type of trauma, this modality is a must - it represents true hope. Clarity Breathwork releases the trapped trauma energy and psychic pain that is stored in your body without talking or thinking about it.

This form of Breathwork is such a powerful healing tool to compliment my practice as a certified nurse midwife. I guide women to birth their babies into the world and themselves as mamas. I also guide women to birth themselves as healthy and whole human beings capable of immense joy and inner peace. With over two decades experience of guiding women through the most intense and challenging moments of their lives, I use my wisdom and intuitive understanding to meet each person's unique needs; I am fully comfortable holding safe, loving space to guide you through whatever issues or experiences arise, and will be at your side, responding to your breath every step of the way.

Is This You...

  • You have physical or emotional symptoms that modern medicine and other modalities cannot diagnose or heal
  • You experienced trauma, emotional pain and/or stress that impacts your life today
  • You feel stuck in your life, or have emotional blocks, habitual thoughts or behaviors that are limiting you

You want…

  • Increased energy and vitality (to feel like yourself again- or even better!)
  • Healthy, holistic and natural ways to reduce stress in a way that lasts
  • More ease, flow and joy in your life and relationships

This incredible Breathwork shakes up and releases trapped trauma and pain in the body, catalyzing permanent deep healing - a modality that is easier, simpler, quicker, and more effective than other methods out there. I am in awe of it every time. It empowers the body to heal itself physically and emotionally, and connects you to the less tangible more spiritual aspects of who we are. Over a series of sessions I will guide you how to release and heal from inner stress, current or repressed emotional pain, and trauma. I will guide you to remove what feels like immovable blocks that stand in your way to living the life you want. It can seem impossible to recover from traumatic or emotional events - all of which cause so much suffering, dis-ease and illness, as well as harm lives, and relationships. But it can be done - this is the most powerful method I have experienced to assist with physical and emotional healing.

There is nothing more important than the relationship we have with ourselves. This primary relationship informs both the quality of our day to day experience and the quality of relationships we have with others. In this work... we explore and deepen the relationship with ourselves both in terms of how we inhabit our bodies and how accepting and open-hearted we are with ourselves; deepening and opening to the beauty of our essential Being.
— Alan Dolan of

If you ever have a chance to work with Anne Margolis, be sure and take it! Anne has such a gift for holding a compassionate and healing space. After so many years of being a mid-wife Anne knows how to support deep opening into vulnerable places and really honors the bodies wisdom and timing. She inspires great trust and brings lightness to the work. I felt so safe and unconditionally loved during my session and because of that I was able to really let go. Thank you Anne.

It has been a pleasure to work with Anne. Her womanly wise and infectious personality made me feel held and safe throughout the whole breathing process and in her presence I was able to really drop in and go deep. Her countless years of experience as a midwife shine through her presence, intuition and no nonsense approach as a breath worker.

What is Clarity Breathwork?

Art by Catie Atkinson @Spiritysol

Art by Catie Atkinson @Spiritysol

According to International Breathwork Foundation "breathwork is a dynamic body-mind practice using conscious connected breathing techniques for inner peace, enhanced well-being and personal transformation. Breathing, beyond the basic need for survival, acts as a bridge between spirit, mind, and body; between the conscious and the subconscious. “Conscious breathing is one of the quickest ways to open the heart and energize the body. When used in specific ways, breathing allows us to release and resolve emotions, belief systems, stresses and memories which are often inaccessible through the more conventional talking therapies."  Clarity Breathwork, previously known as Rebirthing, is a safe, easily accessible and all natural, but powerfully effective process of healing, growth and transformation that is not usually achieved with traditional therapy and modalities that only involve the logical mind. CB enables you to tap into your body's tremendous capacity to rebalance and heal. It increases oxygen and energy flow in the body, helps gently release toxins, negative thoughts, inner tension and stress, suppressed wounds, painful emotions and trauma stored as trapped energy within your body.  It leads to greater clarity, a deeper sense of knowing and profound insights into your core life's issues. This work, and its life coaching aspects, can also bring awareness to habitual dysfunctional subconscious beliefs, repetitive patterns and conditioning, as well as remove blocks and a sense of feeling stuck, that limit you from living the life you want. It allows for spontaneous completion and resolution, invites you to develop the courage to cultivate acceptance, understanding, reconciliation and even gratitude for past hurts. It enhances love, compassion, and forgiveness of yourself and others, and inspires you to take responsibility for your life, embrace what is, and let go of trying to control what cannot be controlled. What is amazing is how it can bring consciousness to your subconscious - which dictates much of your bodily functions, emotional responses and behavior. CB can even connect you to the spiritual realm within and around you, to reveal the true magnificence of who you are and heal a mistaken sense of separation from these essential components of life. The process creates an incredible feeling of relief, aliveness, enhanced well-being, and joy. Wonderful inner change creates outer changes in your well-being, your life, your direction and sense of purpose, and your relationships.

How Does Clarity Breathwork Work?

In everyday life, are using only about 20-30 % of our lung capacity. Breath is what gives us life, needed fuel, energy and oxygen; exhaling is the most effective natural detoxification. Clarity Breathwork invites you to breathe at 100 % of your lung's capacity, which enables your cells to get get fully oxygenated and energized, as well as release toxins, so that your entire body can work better and operate more efficiently. Breathwork literally resets the body, and empowers the body to recalibrate, rebalance and heal itself. Breath is also intricately involved in our emotional responses. When we are relaxed, we breathe more slowly and deeply. When we encounter a stressor, our bodies are hard wired to go into the fight or flight stress response. Sometimes this can be lifesaving. But if there is no imminent danger, we still experience all the symptoms and effects of the stress hormones which then become harmful over time, and often we are without the ability to fully process it all - especially if the stress is chronic or severe; we momentarily hold our breath, then breathe more rapidly and shallow, and the unprocessed emotions felt at the time get subconsciously repressed, and stored as trapped energy within the body, without our even thinking about it. Many people in the modern world operate almost continuously in the fight or fight mode even though there is no actual danger from which to flee, wrecking havoc with their health. All animals shake off trauma energy, after they escape a threat, and return to their normal relaxed state of being; they move on without being impacted by the trauma exposure, the trapped trauma energy does not build up and cause die-ease as it does in humans. Humans tend to walk around carrying baggage of past wounds, hurts, pains and traumas. Clarity Breathwork puts the breather in a semiconscious state, so the body naturally releases this baggage of past trauma energy, and when it is released we feel better emotionally as well as physically; we are in a more optimal state of health and well-being. It is incredible to feel and to witness the immense relief that follows.

Around the world in many cultures and religions, breath is associated with spirit, the G-d of your own understanding, the infinite and intangible - from standard biblical religions where G-d is described as breathing life into the first human, to the yogic traditions describing prana - breath as life force. Clarity Breathwork has no association with any religion or spiritual dogma, but it sure has spiritual benefits; it enables us to explore, feel deeper into, and connect to the essence of who we are, that which is sublime and so very there, but not directly discernible through our five senses. Clarity Breathwork can lead to transcendental and heavenly mystical experiences. If you are literally taking in all this breath, inhaling the spiritual life force fully into your being, especially with the intention to heal, you would be amazed by the profound healing that takes place; this not only makes this modality even more compelling, but also it provides such a powerful tool, that you can access at your own will.

What is a Clarity Breathwork session like?

PRIVATE REBIRTH YOURSELF SESSIONS: Private sessions are my VIP packages. They enable me to be with you every breath and step of the way - you will have 100 % of my full attention. Every private appointment is initially 2 hours, then follow up sessions are about 1  1/2  to 2 hours - depending on each person's unique experience. The initial session we review and discuss your intake form, which combines a deep exploration of your past and current life situations, areas of difficulty and hardships - questions will include what you know about your birth, your childhood and teen-age years, family patterns and issues that impact you, important relationship issues, and how they may be impacting your life. This is followed by a personally guided and supported bodily experience, initiated by conscious, full, circular and continuous breathing for approximately an hour -  often with an intention or focus on what you want to change, release or heal from, and encouragement to stay present and allow for sensations to occur. The inhalation is full and enthusiastic into the upper chest and heart space, while the exhalation is automatic, relaxed and releasing, not controlled. Music and gentle supportive touch may be used to enhance your healing. An hour of breathing in this way is followed by a period of sharing, and reflection, helpful suggestions. Suggestions can include a take home practice which is intended to enhance the process of self discovery and healing, and support you in integrating back into your daily life. The subsequent sessions tend to be shorter as we only need to talk about how you are doing and feeling, since the last session and get right to the breathwork; depending on the extent of pain and trauma you have experienced, your actual time doing and integrating the breathwork may take longer.  I want to allow the body do what it needs to do to heal and not interfere with this incredible process while it takes its course.

As a midwife I help people birth; I have an understanding of how exquisitely sensitive fetuses, newborns, babies and children are, and how their experience of their world can impact their adult lives. I trust the wisdom of the birthing process and the body's incredible capacity to heal. I am also skilled at supporting people at the most vulnerable, intense, transformative times of their lives, and empowering people to climb mountains that feel too big to climb. I witness miracles daily. As a Clarity Breathwork practitioner, I help people rebirth themselves. I am a professionally trained Clarity Breathwork facilitator who guides your breathing and experience to enable your own transformational healing process to occur, within a safe, supported, loving, non - judgemental space.  I am trained to support you through processing the various thoughts, emotions and bodily sensations you may encounter during the session. We will work together to help you recognize and connect complicated issues and patterns in your life to their earliest roots, your subconscious and your sympathetic nervous system's reactions to trauma. My knowledge and skills as a yoga practitioner and teacher will enable me to enhance your session. I embrace a holistic deep perspective of human beings, in which I see the mind, body, heart and spirit as intricately connected, and I respect the power of energy within you and the need for it to flow freely for your health and well-being. Simple relaxation and mindfulness techniques and gentle hands on assistance will be used to support your journey.

GROUP REBIRTH YOURSELF SESSIONS: Small, intimate group Clarity Breathwork workshops and weekend retreats are another wonderful way to experience this powerful healing modality. While they do not replace the private sessions, there is an incredible power and energy unique to doing the breathwork and associated exercises, in community; and you can still benefit from CB's tremendously rich experiences. My own most profound healing was in group Breathwork workshops, supplemented by private sessions.

Group sessions are facilitated by me, and my trained assistants as needed, depending on group size. They are about 3 hours or a bit longer depending on the needs of people in the group, and also include experiential activities that enhance personal growth, healing, vitality and real connection. There will be authentic sharing, nurturing touch and expressive free style dance to move emotions and create joy. Group workshops are powerful not only your own transformation, but also to connect more deeply with others in community. Together we journey to explore and return to ourselves, experience profound healing, and pure elation - while being held by one another as well. You will leave with effective and uplifting tools to take home and incorporate into your daily life to support your journey. You can try one session, but a commitment to a series of regular sessions in a group package is recommended, to experience the full benefits of this incredible healing modality. SEE DETAILS BELOW.

Seasonal weekend retreats for pregnant women only and others for all, are available as well. There are openings in the Spring 2018 retreat in take you deeper and higher. Stay tuned for more information - if interested in the retreat, let me know on the form below!

While groups do not include the initial one-on-one discussion, and you do not get the same individualized, undivided attention and counseling as you would during a private session, there is group sharing and connection, and you do get some support during the breathwork experience by me and my colleague, as well as the supportive energy of the group itself. It is truly an amazing experience, like no other.

Our amazing graduate & practitioner Anne Margolis, is sharing the Breath in New York! With her decades long background as a midwife, she is totally rockin’ it with Clarity Breathwork, sending ripples of transformation and healing out far and wide. Thank you Anne!

I had the opportunity to be facilitated in my Breathwork sessions with Anne. And I’m so grateful for this opportunity. First I feel safe from her presence. I love the energy she brings into the space from the very beginning. I like the fact that she’s a midwife and familiar with home birth, and a Yogini herself, so that’s brought her in some sensitivity around vulnerable issues and situations within the areas of Breathwork. I can feel that she has done a lot of work on herself which gave her a lot of experience of dealings with different issues that may come up. She’s very nurturing and caring and I feel safe on her hands when she’s facilitating me. I really feel that I can fully let go because I knew that I am and feel held safe around her. I fully trusted her with the most vulnerable secret in my life, because she just radiates that trusting feeling and persona. Authenticity is very important for me because I do believe in the saying that...’we can only give what we have’. It means for me that if we haven’t experienced any pain in our life, we won’t be capable to take people into the depth of their pain, and I feel that Anne is always coming from her authenticity, and with that..I trusted her. Trust with with your facilitator is so important so I can fully let go and enjoy the process, and go on a healing journey where I can experience true healing and transformation.
I can fully recommend her to facilitate a Breathwork sessions - private or group, because I knew that she will do a great job and that she will be able to take her people into a beautiful deeper journey of healing.

Anne has a warmth and earthiness to her that puts you at ease. She was really supportive and nurturing during my Breathwork sessions and assisted me to go deeper in my process. Anne asked thoughtful questions that led me to greater clarity and release old programs. She is gentle and made me feel safe and comfortable throughout the sessions. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to heal and release stress or limiting beliefs from their life. Anne is a wonderful Breathworker and cares deeply about the people she serves. I would love to do Breathwork with her again!

How to start?

Art by Catie Atkinson @Spiritysol

Art by Catie Atkinson @Spiritysol

A minimum of a series of 12 PRIVATE REBIRTH YOURSELF sessions is recommended. This is called the Rebirth Yourself VIP Package. Sessions are usually weekly or every other week. Sessions can be further apart if needed, but frequent and regular sessions are ideal. The purpose of committing to a series of 12 sessions is to build a relationship of trust and to delve deeply into the process long enough to experience the most beneficial, richest results. It is possible to try one session before committing to 12, but know the commitment to yourself and the series of regular sessions brings results that are the most long term and life transforming.  Should you decide to then go for the package, the cost of the first session can be credited towards cost of program. The sessions can take place in my yoga and breathwork studio in Nyack NY; but powerful sessions can be done in water supported on your back, or face down, using nose plugs and a snorkel in a tub, in the calm waters of nature, or in a beautiful soothing place outdoors where you can feel private, safe, and uninhibited. These is also a virtual, and home visit option in select cases.

GROUP REBIRTH YOURSELF sessions occur regularly virtually and live. The virtual group meets 2 hours weekly at various schedules depending on your assigned group. I host local group 3 hour workshops on one Sunday evening each month from 6:30 - 9:30 pm. Feel free to try one, but a commitment to the Rebirth Yourself Group Package of 10 sessions is recommended, to experience the full benefits. Location is Nyack NY, or at a local studio, depending on group size. Next one is scheduled for 1/21/18; after that, tentative schedule is 3/11, 4/15, 5/13, and 6/`10.

Join me at Quest Yoga in Mount Kisco, NY for a group Clarity Breathwork workshop, Sunday 1/14/18 from 1 to 4 pm. Click here to register, and also next event at The Assemblage in NYC Thursday in March 2018.  

I also do home visits for both private and group REBIRTH YOURSELF sessions, but there is an additional fee for travel within the tristate area, plus parking (for example in NYC); the travel fee is waived for all if you refer others who register for sessions in your area or location on the same day in succession, or together in a group.  I will also travel to attend group sessions you arrange in your location. Additional travel expenses would need to be covered, if over 1  1/2 hour drive.


What is the History of Clarity Breathwork?

Art by Catie Atkinson @Spiritysol

Art by Catie Atkinson @Spiritysol

Breath and different types of breathing have been used around the globe in many cultures for thousands of years, to access higher states of consciousness for transformation and healing. For example, in the East, many different yogic breathing techniques such as Pranayama emphasized the importance of conscious breathing to achieve a variety of desired results for optimal well-being along journey to enlightenment.  

Clarity Breathwork evolved out of ancient practices, as well as Rebirthing, founded by Leonard Orr in the 1970’s and taught worldwide by both Leonard Orr and Sondra Ray.  In 1999, the founders of Clarity Breathwork decided to differentiate their work from Rebirthing, and call it Clarity Breathwork. They did this for several reasons. They found the term “Rebirthing” limiting in its implication that the purpose of this work was solely to address re-experiencing and healing birth trauma. Although they acknowledge all aspects of birth, which includes womb time, conception and delivery to be very powerful, they also wanted the name of their work to encompass the much wider range of issues that can emerge through practicing conscious, connected breathing. These may stem from later wounds and trauma, childhood, teen-aged years, schooling and education, livelihood and money, family, sexuality, relationships, religion, societal conditioning, emotional energy and behavior patterns passed down from family and its ancestry, death and dying, and so on. They also wanted to embrace and meet the impermanent nature of physical reality, as well as the eternal reality of spirit. Their focus is more on learning to be more fully alive and present in our current lives moment by moment. Facilitating Clarity Breathwork, like midwifery, includes both art and science, as well as wisdom from experience and training in other complimentary healing modalities from the East and the West.
