Breath and meditation journey
Improve your sleep, decrease your unhelpful responses to stressors, and increase your mindfulness in daily life.
Learn simple, but powerful, breath and meditation techniques in just three short weeks.
This journey is for everyone. No special skills are involved, just a willingness to learn.
Over the 3 weeks we explore 2-3 breath techniques for around 15-20 minutes and follow this with guided mindfulness meditations.
There’s a private Facebook group for support, question time every Wednesday morning after class and a recording of each session, emailed directly to you in case you want to practice more at home.
Haven’t meditated before? No problem, you don’t need to clear your mind, you don’t need to sit still and you CERTAINLY don’t need to sit in lotus position.

Mouth breathing has been associated with numerous health issues such as anxiety, insomnia, circulatory disorders and ADHD. We practice techniques which focus on strengthening the diaphragm and surrounding muscles. As we retrain ourself to breath in and out through the mouth lengthening our exhale, some of these health issues may dissipate. As we learn to breathe more effectively we massage not only the muscular structures in the torso, but also the organs, flooding them with nourishment.
With busy lifestyles, this breath and meditation journey provides you with the opportunity for short, effective practices; all in the comfort of your own home.

experiences and ask questions.
