In my workshops you’ll learn a lot more about the breath ,and about your own breath by using a variety of breath tests. We will also discuss how we can use breathing techniques to “hack” our nervous system. Mainly to get yourself out of the “fight or flight” mode into a state of “rest and recover”, to manage stress levels and prevent a burn-out.

We will also practice a breath-sequence where we use a series of different exercises to reset the nervous system, using active breathing, breath holds, slow breathing etc. With the goal to leave you feeling completely relaxed and excited about what you’ve learnt.
