Poor girl. It does sound like a condition, though not a too serious one. It could be related to seizures that is causing this, though you would have to ask a vet. Some dogs can have nightmares that cause them to breath more heavily and jerk. Now, I'm not sure how dog nightmares work, but I hear senior dogs can have night-terrors and a dog is considered a senior past 6 years of age.
As long as she seems to be getting enough sleep and isn't tired or sore during the day it probably isn't any danger to her. I am no expert, however, so I would ask a vet during your next visit.
We have a dog that has seizures sometimes, about once every 2-3 months, and they always happen at night. Just something interesting about her.
I hope all turns out okay. Best of luck!
