Amy Kuretsky (she/her) is a breathwork facilitator and wellness coach for mind, body, and business.
Amy believes that the health of our physical and emotional bodies are inextricably tied to the health of our businesses, and that when we work in this overlap we can build businesses that are heart-centered and healing for both the individual and the collective.
She uses the breath as a tool for healing in both private and group sessions and has led in-person breathwork groups all over the US. Along with her coaching business, Amy also has a background in acupuncture and Chinese medicine and co-owns Constellation Acupuncture and Healing Arts in downtown Minneapolis.
In this episode, Amy shares her story with chronic and autoimmune disease, honestly going into detail about what her life looks like now, 10+ years after diagnosis and initial treatment.
We talk about the emotional side of chronic illness, especially what can happen when your identity switches from "healthy person" to "sick person". Amy shares some of the coping tools that have helped her, along with the healing modalities she now relies on, including her breathwork practice which we discuss in detail.
Quick content warning that Amy does talk a bit about the subject of sexual trauma in this conversation, although not in any specific detail.
I have been working with Amy's style of breathwork for a few months now, and it's been so impactful for me. I also really appreciate everything she shared in this conversation about how healing is pretty much never a linear experience, plus her reminders of why and how to practice self-compassion.
I can't wait for you to get to know her and learn more through this conversation too!
