About the session


“Take a few breaths”…… how often we instinctively turn to breath to calm stress and distress, but why? Delving into the captivating realm of the science of breath, this 60-minute on the mat yoga therapy session takes you on a journey of discovery and physiological understanding as we unravel the intricate mechanisms that govern our most essential life force. Drawing on the fields of neuroscience, psychology and biology, we navigate the relationship between breath and the autonomic nervous system and how this influences our psychological state, uncovering the profound effects of breath on stress modulation, cognitive function, and overall well-being. From the timeless wisdom of ancient breathing practices to the cutting-edge insights of modern research, this workshop offers a blend of theory and practise.   Whether you seek to enhance your mental clarity, manage your emotions, or simply cultivate a deeper connection with your inner self, join us in this captivating exploration of breath, and empower yourself with transformative tools for a balanced and enriched life.
