Steph Magenta is a breathwork facilitator and teacher, shamanic practitioner, and advanced Oxygen Advantage facilitator. She is the founder of UK-based Seven Directions® Breathwork and the co-founder of Integrative Breath, two training programs proudly certified by the GPBA (Global Professional Breathwork Alliance).
Steph places great importance on the integration aspect of any somatic practices which have the potential to elicit significant change or breakthrough for the person experiencing the work.
Steph’s background in substance misuse and addiction research inspired her three-decade career in health and wellbeing, from running her own juice bars and plant-based cafes to establishing healing centers and her own breathwork training programs.
She is passionate about healing through somatic practice, which informs her grounded, heart-centered, and trauma-aware approach to the practice of breathwork. She is an award-winning proponent of sexual freedom advocacy, has trained in Dr Betty Martin's Wheel of Consent, and is currently training in TRE® (Trauma Releasing Exercises).
On a personal level, Steph’s extensive work with plant medicines, embodiment therapies, and talk therapies has transformed her life. Having converted her own suffering into her superpowers, she is now happy to take her place as a wise elder in her communities. She is an advocate of cold exposure, clean eating/detox protocols, core strength training, breath awareness, and nervous system regulation as a route to ongoing health and wellness.
