Breathing if You’re Unwell, Breathless or More Senior
Experience an easy introduction to breathing exercises with our gentlest breathing course — because breathwork shouldn’t be stressful
One of the great things about breathing exercises is that they can be 100% tailored to suit every body.
And if your body is a little older, or you experience chronic illness or breathlessness, it is very important to start any new practice gently.
Breathwork is powerful. Pushing too hard can be counterproductive. It causes stress, adds to feelings of anxiety and makes symptoms worse.
