Welcome to the transformative world of breathwork.

Workshop Details

Did you know that we breathe on average 21,000 times a day? That’s right – approximately 15 times a minute, every minute of every day. Working tirelessly, our lungs & breath transport oxygen into the body and Co2 out, regulates our heart rate and supports us to connect more deeply to ourselves. But for most of us, we aren’t breathing in the most optimal way.

Many of us breathe shallow and into our upper chest, which may be a learnt anxiety response or has come about through poor posture, sitting down for long periods of time or from holding our tummies in. Unbeknown to most, because we shallow or upper chest breathe when needing a boost of energy, this constantly sends messages to the nervous system that we are in danger, preparing the body for flight or fight. This then impacts a persons wellbeing and capacity to sleep soundly.

In this workshop, you’ll learn about the wonders of the breath, including:-

  • why it’s more beneficial to nose breathe rather than mouth
  • how the breath can regulate our nervous system and soothe the body and mind
  • techniques to calm and and for a good nights sleep

This is an informative and experiential workshop where you’ll be invited to experience breathwork for yourself. These are safe practices, however, due to their calming nature, some aren’t suitable for those with low blood pressure (Kate will advise along the way).

You’ll be invited to join Kate both in seated positions (in a chair) and lying on the floor (however, if you prefer to stay seated then that is fine). Have 2 books to hand and a warm blanket.
