Episode 231: Move Your Stuck Qi with Breathwork

with Amy Kuretsky, L.Ac.

Chances are, if you’re checking out this episode, you’re looking for tools and techniques to help tune into yourself and be a better self-healer. You’re probably also aware that the things we do every day can make a massive difference in how we feel as opposed to only finding healing in a bottle.

In this conversation, Amy Kuretsky, L.Ac. joins us to examine the deceptively simple, yet powerful technique of breathwork. As a broad term, breathwork is about simply bringing some intention to how you are using or manipulating your breath to reach specific outcomes such as regulating energy, clearing trauma, and reprograming old beliefs.

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • What some of the differences are between types of breathwork
  • Who often benefits the most from the type of breathwork Amy practices
  • The benefits she found for herself through her practice
  • How breathwork can help to unpack trauma
  • A short example of the breathwork Amy works with

Amy Kuretsky (she/her) is a breathwork facilitator and business coach working on Dakota and Anishinaabe ancestral land. Her work is focused on helping successful businesses tap into their intuition and do business differently so that they can fall back in love with their work.

She uses the breath as a tool for healing and business building and has led online and in-person breathwork groups all over the world. This past year, she organized with a group of other breathwork facilitators for more anti-oppression and trauma informed training as part of the Breathwork for the People collective.

Along with her coaching business, she also has a background in acupuncture and Chinese medicine and co-owns Constellation Acupuncture and Healing Arts, a healing space in NE Minneapolis.
