I run workshops for individuals and groups to help re-introduce people to the foundations of functional breathing (which we do naturally when born).
Everyday breathing habits should be – Low, Light and Slow.
Low – Through your nose into the lower part of your lungs. Light – the volume of air required for the activity you are doing and the noise you make while breathing. Slow – your speed of respiration.
I explain the importance and science behind this style of everyday breathing and demonstrate exercises to help your body return to this anatomically correct style of breathing that we all did when we were younger.
Breathing for Health – includes a variety of exercises to increase awareness of the diaphragm and other breathing muscles and how to activate and strengthen all of them.
Breathing for Relaxation – includes instruction on both ancient and modern breathing techniques which can be used to help the mind and body to be calm and focused as well as others that help re-energise.
Breathing for Performance – includes exercises that with help calm the body but enhance your focus and performance.
