By equipping ourselves with techniques for breathing more consciously, we can improve our sense of connection and wellbeing in the workplace.

Breathing is one of our body’s most basic functions, and most essential to life. From the very first intake of air, it is what guides us through every life event, triumph and challenge. There is much scientific research into the benefits of slowing and connecting to our breath, from a reduction in stress and improving brain function to better sleeping patterns. And with the rise in popularity of practices such as yoga and meditation, where breathwork is integral, many people are waking up to the fact that our best tool for becoming more grounded and present, dealing with stress, boosting our energy and even regulating our temperature is always right at our disposal.

Although breathing well is important for our minds and bodies to function, we rarely pay attention to our breathing. Fortunately there are some simple techniques for controlling and connecting to our breath that anyone can take away and use to better take care of oursleves, and make space in our busy work day.  

We'll focus on:

    •    Introduction to the physiology of breathing
    •    Why and how to connect to your breath 
    •    Different breathing techniques to practice for calming the mind and increasing energy.
