The Struggle

The Struggle

So many people CHOOSE suffering…

They are addicted to struggle...

They think that anxiety, stress, and overwhelm is the norm, and that’s “just the way it’s supposed to be”...

They constantly over consume content and turn to “gurus” to fix them…
So many people do everything BUT turn inward.

Here’s the truth…

Everything you need to live the life you want, everything you need to be the person you want to be is already inside of you.

You just need help accessing it. You need help stripping away the layers of suffering, struggle, anxiety, and stress. You need to learn how to connect with your body on a deeper level and create a felt sense of safety, peace, and well-being WITHIN yourself.

about me

I'm Samantha Skelly - a 7-figure entrepreneur, international speaker, best-selling author, wellness coaching expert, and breathwork facilitator. For years I struggled with disordered eating and body image issues. I was completely disconnected from my body and tried every method imaginable to "fix" myself. It wasn't until I discovered breathwork that I truly began to experience real growth, transformation, and recovery.

Since undergoing my own healing journey, I founded my two companies: Pause Breathwork and Hungry for Happiness to help others overcome their own pain and struggles. It's my mission to unite humanity by teaching people to breathe, feel, and thrive. You are perfect, your body is the healer, and you already have everything you need to experience sustainable transformation.

My Vision

My Vision
  • 20 years from now, I want it to be absurd that humans once hated their bodies, numbed emotionality, and silenced the inner voice that was asking for love and for us to show up.
  • 20 years from now, I want the dependency model to be completely destroyed, and for humans to remember the innate power and divine intelligence within each of us.
  • 20 years from now, I want the connection between happiness and hustle to be demolished - the belief that we need to be constantly "doing" something to "feel" our desired feelings.
  • 20 years from now, I want humans to have direct access to their hearts, where egos take a backseat to heart energy, and our addiction to struggle is replaced with joy as our new standard.
  • 20 years from now, I see a completely different world - one in which humans are slower, softer, more connected, and more alive.

I know this is possible through the power of breathwork. I know this is possible through bringing humanity together to breathe, connect, love, and feel.

That is my vision...are you with me?

My Vision

The Pause Breathwork Mission

Constant anxiety and stress are not the norm, but for many of us, it can become our default mode and something we just live with.

The truth is that we all deserve to thrive, and within each of us is everything we need to reach and sustain this state of being.

The key to activating this state is the breath.

At Pause, we envision a world where everyone has the awareness and knowledge to use the breath to clear anxiety and stress, grounding into the truth that the body is the healer, and through the power of the breath, each of us can access the flow of bliss, peace, and happiness.

That's why it's our mission to help you clear anxiety and stress through the power of your breath.

If you’re ready to experience the life-changing power of breathwork for yourself...

All Love,

All Love,

Chronic anxiety and stress isn’t “the norm.”

In my 6-week course, I will introduce you to breathwork, guide you through weekly practices, and help you reconnect into your body so that you can finally access your innate wisdom, safety, and calm.

"When I began working with Samantha, I was struggling with unworthiness, particularly the fear of failure. Breathwork has helped me feel and release emotions without labeling or trying to rationalize their origin. They just are. In my experience, breathwork organically brings forth what you need in the moment. It’s so powerful because it brings your awareness to the present - to what is within you and what has always been there. I’m prone to spending too much time in my head, always allowing my mind to hijack my experience and spin a web of anxiety and stress, but breathwork physically pulls me back into my body and into the present moment. It’s like meditation full tilt on steroids, and I highly recommend it!"

What are people saying about Pause Breathwork?

"Breathwork has changed me in more ways than I think I even know. I feel like a completely different person. Before I started breathwork, I was dealing with so much buried pain, anger, and sadness. I knew I was holding back and that I wasn't loving myself or showing up the way I wanted to in life. I didn't realize how much I had closed off until I started breathwork. Working with Samantha taught me that healing your body doesn't come from thinking, it comes from connecting into your body and releasing. I'm able to heal without reliving an experience over and over again. Pause Breathwork provides a transformation like you could never imagine. It will help you heal, connect into your body, and release trapped emotionality. It will open you up to a whole new understanding of self and life. Its phenomenal!"
- Marli A.
"I always thought that my main issues revolved around body image, but through breathwork and reconnecting with myself and my body, I discovered that my true issues were perfectionism and unworthiness. Working with Samantha and learning breathwork has helped me make so much progress! Now I know how to connect with my soul and my higher self. I know how to feel and release emotions. In general, I am calmer, I am no longer in overwhelm, and I understand that life can be easy if I let it! Pause Breathwork is the coolest thing you can ever do. I can’t explain it - you just need to experience it for yourself!working with her; never judged. I just followed what she said and trusted the process. I can't believe the transformation my mind has gone through in addition to my body!"
- Courtney M.
"I’ve always struggled with anxiety, but since starting breathwork, I've released a lot of emotion and connected more strongly with my body. I’ve gained a deeper sense of trust in my body and allowance of my emotions to flow through me, without the urge to question or fight why they are there. The most important thing I’ve learned from working with Samantha is that I can heal myself. I do not need to be dependent on others to heal me. Healing is always available to me, and the breath is such a powerful tool to go into self-healing and discovery at a very deep, emotional, and energetic level. If you’re looking for deeper healing within your body and soul, the breath is the most amazing way to experience this!"
- Brielle H.


What are the benefits of breathwork?

Here are the most common benefits: Immediate stress reduction & anxiety relief. Connect with your emotions & change your response to them. Revitalizes your organs. Gives you access to your higher power. Reduces toxins in your body & provides an energetic release. More energy & mental clarity. Deepens your relationship to your body. Release trauma that has been stuck in your system for years.

What are common side effects of breathwork?

Breathwork is a completely safe practice; however, the body will respond in physical ways that may seem odd. Tetany is the most common physical side effect; it’s where your hands will curl inwards toward your heart. This usually passes within 15 minutes of completing the practice. Your ears may ring for about 20 minutes after breathwork. During the session, your body may shake, move around, or you’ll feel the need to scream. This is all part of the energetic release.

Is breathwork safe for pregnant women?

Breathwork is not recommended for pregnant women. The practice can create intense emotionality within the system, which may create emotional disruption for the baby. Breathwork is highly recommended prenatal to allow for the release of past trauma and to create a healthy energetic environment for the baby, as well as postnatal. Breathwork is safe to use when breastfeeding.

I have high blood pressure, is this safe for me?

If you have any medical conditions or are currently taking medication, please consult your doctor before starting breathwork. Medical conditions may include, but are not limited to, high blood pressure, depression, kidney disease, heart disease, chronic panic attacks, and asthma.

How often should I do breathwork?

It’s important to listen to your body when you are checking in with this question. Breathwork is completely safe to do every single day, or twice a day. However, you want to first ask yourself, “What is my intention for my practice?” Ask yourself the why behind wanting to complete the practice. There are absolutely no downsides for increasing the duration of your sessions or the number of sessions completed on a weekly basis.
