Find Your Calm

Slow your breath, relieve anxiety, with style.

Meet The Shift...

The Shift was inspired by the Komuso Monks of 17th century Japan. They used a bamboo 'shakuhachi' flute as a healing modality and a method of attaining enlightenment.  

The Shift promotes the feeling of calm by adjusting your biology through controlled breath. The Shift was created in a partnership with a psychotherapist and meditation experts. Using data from over one year of testing to engineer the ideal breathing tool with the right length and diameter to produce the ideal exhale of 8-10 seconds to calm your parasympathetic nervous system.

Here's a video to walk you through how The Shift works.

The Story behind The Shift

The Shift was created by Todd & Vanessa Steinberg, husband and wife team. They were both very stressed out and feeling disconnected. They knew they needed a change.

They worked out, they ate right, to no avail. They tried meditation, but it didn't work.

They started working with a therapist who suggested they try breathing through a straw to help slow their breath down. They tried it and were instantly surprised at how effective it was.

Todd and Vanessa began researching meditation tools and breathing tools and looking for more resources, but were shocked to discover that no one was creating these much needed tools. There was very little guidance on how to make a habit of breathing better, let alone make it simple, effective, and practical.

Soon after this initial discovery, they went to a local art market and ran into a man selling 17th century Shakuhachi flutes. These flutes are used by Komuso monks to blow zen. They play the flutes and breathe and meditate to temporarily dissolve their egos.

After seeing the flutes, Todd and Vanessa had their Aha! moment and decided they were going to build the Shift necklace to unite ancient wisdom with the modern science of breathing better to give people a simple and practical tool.
