2. BREATH WORK

Breath as it moves through you

We will explore the anatomy and function of breathing with a hands on, experiential approach. By experiencing and learning more about our own breathing habits and how this affects us, we can increase our personal awareness of function and dysfunction.

We will also learn about the Fight/Flight/Freeze reflex and how this directly affects our breathing, our sensory systems and ultimately, our general wellbeing and even our approach to life. Learning more about how our clients are living in this reflex on a daily level, can help us gain a deeper understanding of them and how to help both their bodies and breathing habits.

If you work with clients with breathing dysfunctions, asthma, COPD, IPF or others, this workshop will teach you ways in which to support them with improved breathing habits. This is very much a ‘hands on’ experiential and practical workshop –  please wear loose clothing and you may choose to work on the floor or on an upright chair with no arm rests.
