Breath is life. From the moment that we take our very first life-giving breath, until the moment that life leaves the body, our breath is a constant, faithful and trusted companion that acts as a bridge between the physical, mental, emotional, relational and spiritual aspects of our being.
Breathing is both completely automatic and can also be brought completely under our control, offering us a wonderful opportunity to master the body-mind system and enhance performance across all areas of our lives.
What to Expect?
Theory + Exercises+ Question/Answer
Understanding how our physiology underpins our emotions, feelings, thoughts and behaviour and how taking back control of our physiology by using the breath can improve the quality of our thinking and ultimately our performance
