This full day workshop is for anyone who wants to breathe better, perhaps because of a breathing disorder, to address not getting enough air or feeling stuck in the process of breathing….or simply just out of curiosity. 95% of us are not breathing correctly and how we breath affects everything.
During the day you will learn how to carry out a personalised BIQ (Breathing IQ), learn the science and physiology of breathing and be led through a variety of breathing exercises designed to bring you back to lower body breathing.
You will also learn different breathing techniques for various needs/ disorders such as – sleep, panic or anxiety, stress, wellbeing. We will finish the day with deep relaxation through the breath, music and rest.
Discover wellbeing from the inside out and wind up feeling blissfully rested, inspired and energised, all in ONE DAY!

- Helps reduce or eliminate neck, shoulder and back pain.
- Improved digestion
- Increased pelvic floor strength
- Increased support of lymphatic system as the breath supports detoxification
- Lung capacity increases

What to expect
During the morning we will give a discussion on the anatomy, psychology and spirituality of the breath. This will be followed by some dynamic breath work exercises and exploration.
During the afternoon we will focus on breath work for specific needs and disorders and how to help correct them through the breath.
We will learn how to breath to take the body into deep rest and relaxation.
We feel that eduction and exploration is the first and most important aspect of learning how to breathe correctly.
There will be time throughout the day to ask any questions.
