Jann Sutherland

Naturopathic Doctor &

Breathwork Facilitator

Dr. Jann is a Naturopathic Doctor and Breathwork Facilitator. She focuses on the Mind-​Body-Spirit connection, in group breathwork ceremonies and one-on-one therapy. She ​believes in activating life force energy within, and working with the subconscious ​patterning in the nervous system, to experience wholeness.

In a breathwork ceremony with Dr. Jann, you can reach heightened states of ​consciousness with the support to heal and transform. She guides you in a gentle, yet ​powerful, Conscious Connected Breathing technique ~ an Active Meditation. You will drop ​into the sensations and emotions of the body, connecting right and left hemispheres of the ​brain, to find present moment awareness. The parasympathetic state occurs here, and the ​body's wisdom speaks. Breathwork is an incredible vibrational medicine, where you can ​access true connection to yourself and your Source. This practice changes lives.


Take a break and focus on YOU. Embrace this ​precious time for yourself, dedicated to ​restoration, healing, and personal ​transformation. Prepare for a weekend filled ​with rejuvenation as you delve into over 10 ​modalities of healing and relaxation.
