READY FOR THE MOST HEALTHY, VIBRANT VERSION OF YOU?
Most of us develop bad breathing habits over our lifetime. Triggered by stress, pain, trauma or poor posture bad breathing habits like shallow breathing, mouth breathing or chest breathing change the body’s balance and blood chemistry over time. This impacts many of the body’s key functions and systems as it gets stuck in the “red alert” stressed state.
Join Emma as she teaches the breathing techniques to break these bad habits and to help stressed, sick and struggling bodies find a way back to calm. It’s a simple solution for life’s big problems.

WHY DOES BREATHING WELL MATTER?
Effective and efficient breathing involves the use of the diaphragm and intercostal muscles to breathe from the belly rather than from the chest.
Learning to breathe from the belly and through the nose allows your body to function at its optimal level. You are allowing a healthy flow of blood and oxygen to enter the brain and the body. Trust us, your body will thank you for it.
And there are even more benefits to effective breathing. The increased oxygen flow that occurs when you breathe well allows the body to return to calm and leave the stressed state. This has an extraordinary impact on your ability to let go of sadness, anxiety, anger, pain, and find clarity.
Taking a mindful pause to breathe can be the difference between feeling energised or utterly exhausted at the end of the day. Breathing techniques are widely regarded as one of the most significant ways to deal with both physical and psychological pain.
