Daring to Show Up
I truly loved every moment of 21 Days of Breathwork and it has become a daily practice. I honestly recommend Breathwork with Annalise to everyone. As the tears rolled down my face on the last day I discovered myself emerging from the depths. The magnitude of Self Love and Gratitude overflowing created eagerness and in that moment I launched myself on an adventure of a lifetime.
On Day 11 and 12 I had an opportunity to take a rejuvenating over night fishing trip with some amazing friends. We ventured out to the glorious Racehorse Creek. On the second day my friend and I headed upstream from camp. We came across a deep crystal clear emerald pool. Standing on the banks observing an abundance of beautiful Cutthroat Trout. Extremely excited and filled with gratitude for the whole experience we began to Fly Fish. Speaking to them from the moment and giving a running commentary. This must have gone on for over an hour when a voice from behind us said, “who are you talking to? The fish” I replied “of course” as I turned around to see a Fish and Wildlife Officer standing there. He came over and stood between us and we conversed. One topic was how discerning the fish are. The Officer said, “By this time in the season the fish have been caught over 100 times and are very aware of hooks.” I pondered on this statement.
You see Fly Fishing is all about the presentation. The flies are created to mimic a natural food source. The flies are attached to a translucent tapered leader. The leader is connected to a thicker heavier tapered fly line that runs through eyelets on the rod. The rod continues to tapper to the handle. This tapper allows the individual to transfer their energy efficiently straight out to a well orchestrated presentation.
A flash of color from the depths and at a blink of an eye, there is a splash on the surface. At the top of the rise a 180-degree turn, my line goes tight and a fight ensues. A minute later I am reeling in a gorgeous and exhausted Cutthroat Trout. Standing on the creeks edge gazing at this trout in my net I become a witness to Breathwork transcending my life. I place the trout back into the water and it takes a few breaths in my hands regaining it’s bearings then in a burst it returns home.
Breathwork has created a pathway to continuously release external layers/filters that are no longer serving and an allowing of the internal growth/healing. As I breathe in my adventure of Self Love and Gratitude everything else floats on by. I focus on the internal part of my cast and with an intelligent awareness I choose what I want to thrive on.
Fuck it! I am going to be absolutely honest with myself. For the longest time I had this image/idea of traveling to a majestic coastline, sitting along side the ocean listening and watching while writing a love letter to someone I truly love and intend spending the rest of my life with. Daring to show up for myself each day has given me the freedom to explore and unveiled that in fact I am that special person. This entire time I have been longing to write to my authentic self. Breathwork is a radical stimulus to the greatest vows of my life and at the top and center it reads “Self Love”.
Belly! Chest! Mouth! I love myself!
With Love and Gratitude from a Humble Student of the Universe.
I dare you to show up for yourself.

I have had a lot of clearing work done in my 58 years. I have never felt the positive effects of the clearing work as I did after our session. Also, the clearing is continuing. I feel clear headed, light in my body and mind and emotions. I feel a certain freedom. I cannot remember ever experiencing freedom after any energy treatment and most wonderful is the fact that it is accelerating and gaining momentum. Unbelievable… simply, truly unbelievable.

When I first went to see Annalise, I had no idea what to expect. I had heard amazing word of mouth reviews and witnessed growth and discovery in others who had gone to see her, but before that first session I still felt incredibly nervous and uncomfortable. I did not know what to expect and I had never done energy work of any kind.
My discomfort evaporated almost the instant the session began. Annalise creates an environment that is at once so sanctuary like that it is hard to believe it exists in the ordinary world, while still succeeding in not being delicate or pretentious. It is a casual, safe space where you can come exactly as you are. Anna has a clarity and a strength that melts my resistances every time. She has an intuition that I really cannot explain, and a care, commitment to and understanding of her clients unlike any I have ever experienced.
She has won my unwavering trust. And this is paramount, as through her work she has acted as a guide for me to face and explore my body in new and profound ways. She has completely changed my vocabulary when it comes to my body and moods, as well as helped me transform my understanding and relationship to my body, building a curiosity and a compassion where before there was resistance and distrust.I would recommend Anna to anybody.
Her professional, straightforward, and nurturing manner makes these sessions a joy as well as an ideal space to not only find healing, but hope, and transformation. I am confident that anybody, no matter who you are, where you’re from, or what you have chosen to do could benefit from work with Annalise. Her understanding, care and ability transcends age, occupation or circumstance.
My ongoing work with her has and will continue to change my life for the better. If you do choose to visit Anna, which you should, my suggestion would be to trust her and really let her do her thing, she will not lead you astray, in fact, I would not be surprised in the slightest if she leads you straight into the heart of it, whatever ‘it’ may be for you, whatever you arrived there to explore, discover or heal.

The best way I can describe having a session with Anna: rewarding yourself an hour to be taken care of, for your body to be listened to both mentally and physically and for your energy to be appreciated, moved around, reset or pushed to where it needs to be.
The interesting thing is that it’s the most relaxing experience but at the same time it’s so incredibly stimulating. I’ve gone many times now, it gives my body an hour or so to be completely relaxed but my mind and energy are always buzzing and focused. It gives me the ability to reflect on my mind and reflect on what is bothering me physically or mentally. Anna is so in tune with what is going on with your body, it’s sometimes unexplainable how she knows certain things…she just knows. She’s incredibly respectful and open to how you are feeling and what you are comfortable with.
Immediately after I always feel energized, clear minded and at peace and comforted with myself. It depends on how I go in feeling or what we focus on during the session, but afterwards I always feel like a burden has been lifted off of me and it may be a specific one depending on the session. Some of my favourite parts of the sessions are when she does visualization exercises and you can let your mind go to the most amazing places, sometimes to the sound of a beautiful singing bowl (my favourite). I also love when she goes through your chakras and explains what is happening in different sections of your body and you can really relate to what is happening in your life to where you are holding tension, or where you are being really creative and energized. I recommend it to anyone at any time in your life – especially today it is so important to take care of our minds and what’s going on inside because we are so constantly stimulated, and this is one of the best ways I know how to.

I first started seeing Annalise about a year ago and would go to her regularly. For the past 6 months I have been having regular Skype sessions with Annalise as I no longer live in Vancouver. These sessions are incredibly valuable to me. The sessions begin like in-person sessions, Annalise asks me if there is something I would like to focus on during our session, then asks me to close my eyes and focus in on my body. During the sessions, I always feel an extreme sense of calm, openness and groundedness.
Afterwards, I feel very at peace with myself and the universe, and am ready for what the following weeks will hold. Although the Skype sessions are not done in person, I get the same sense of clarity and calm that I would from the in-person sessions. I love that Annalise offers Skype sessions because it allows me to continue my spiritual practice while I'm trying to find my own roots abroad. It is something I know I can rely on when many other things in my life are not quite as permanent.
Annalise has been immensely helpful in getting me through the many transitions I have experienced in the past 6 months, and if she didn't offer Skype sessions I would probably be an emotional train wreck!
Thank you Annalise!

Annalise has a special gift, and she has helped me in my life in countless ways. I have had sessions with her both through skype and in person, and each and every session has been powerful and impactful. Even through skype, she is able to find what you need from that particular session, even if you yourself are unaware.
She creates an energetic space of trust, peace, and safety, and works to help you through whatever blockages or difficulties she finds within you. I have left many sessions feeling better in ways that I was unable to even imagine before. I truly believe that anyone can benefit from her work, no matter where in the world you are.
