Gwen was born in Italy, grew up in Tunisia, and attended boarding schools in Europe throughout high school before moving to the United States to attend Stanford University. Gwen credits her diversity in cultural experiences as the most formative education of her life – one that provided her a unique vision and perspective upon which she draws in her work.
It was through Gwen’s lifelong love of yoga and dance that she was able to understand the transformative effect breath can provide. This inspired her to become a Breathwork and Hypnotherapist in 2000 at the BodyMind Academy in Bellevue, Washington. Gwen has continued to hone her skills over the last 20 years.
At the age of twenty-one, Gwen stumbled across Breathwork when she took part in her first spiritual retreat. She has remained passionate about it ever since. When she found a Breathwork school years later, it solidified her journey with the breath and her calling to share its power.
