Breathing & Relaxation classes
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 and relaxation 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 to life’s big problems.

WHY CHOOSE A STRESS REDUCTION & BREATHING WORKSHOP?
While we love teaching online sometimes we need to learn in person to break the bad habits we get stuck in. It is why we created the 2- hour experience so you can feel what is like when you relax, slow your body and breathing, release tight muscles and start to unwind your body and mind with these simple user-friendly technique.
This isn't just another meditation or mindfulness class. What makes it different is Emma's physiotherapy background that allows you to understand how your body and breathing can keep you stressed by the patterns and habits we maintain.
Learning to breathe from the belly and through the nose allows your body to function at its optimal level but its not the only things you need to be aware of.
And there are even more benefits to reducing stress and breathing exercises. By changing your breathing rate and rhythm you can improve your blood chemistry, activating your parasympathetic nervous system allowing the body to return to calm and reduce stress. 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.
