BREATHING FOR HEALTH AND RELAXATION
I run workshops for individuals and groups to help re-introduce people to the foundations of proper breath work (which we do naturally when born).
I teach awareness and exercises to facilitate a “Belly, Back and Sides” breath and encourage the incorporation of this into daily lives.
Breathing for Health – include a variety of exercises to
increase awareness of the diaphragm, how to activate and strengthen it.
Breathing for Relaxation – includes instruction on both ancient and modern breathing techniques that can be used to help the mind and body to be calm and focused as well as other exercises that can stimulate and energise.
The two parts of the workshop bring together the physical and mental aspects of full and proper foundational breath work.

“As someone who suffers with breathing difficulties, I found Helena’s talk very helpful and I am practicing her exercises and I can feel it helps every day.” Anne C.
“I feel more in charge of myself.” Jeannie
“Very useful, very calming.” Janette
“I would highly recommend a breathing class with Helena.
Helena started with an explanation of why our breathing is so important and then took us through some exercises to first assess how we currently breathe.
I discovered that one whole side was very lazy and that I tend to breathe too fast as rule and there was me thinking I knew how to breathe!
The exercises to improve have been brilliant and I loved the guided relaxation breathing to end the session…totally drifted away and found peace in a way I never experience before. This is something I will definitely do again.”
“Having a breathing workshop and taking time out just to focus on breathing itself makes me think of what great results are achievable on one’s overall health if practiced every day.
The 1-2-1 session with Helena was great and we went through each sequence together which was very useful. Her approach made me feel safe to ask any questions that came up for me whilst practicing. Helena also left me with a booklet which included all the sequences we had practiced.”
“The presentation on breathing was brilliant”
