Breathe Online 30 minute breath meditations
unwind body and mind
Was so blissed out at the end after having been on edge of my nerves for past few days. That kinda high might help me ditch the narcotics.

Really enjoyed tonight and would like to come along next week...
...That was fantastic, thank you...
...peaceful and meditative.
What's involved more details:
The main part of each session involves Coherent Breathing, our natural breathing rate to retrain the breath - balance the nervous system, find the state of "relaxed aliveness" our natural and optimal state for work, rest and play. As our natural breathing rhythm it allows the nervous system, mind, heart and respiratory system find regulation, resonance and balance. Scientifically proven to reduce anxiety, depression, asthma and more ... and to calm your body and mind; it's safe and beneficial for all to attend whatever your state of health or age. Everyone needs to learn and practice this breath for optimal wellbeing.
Mindful breath is involved in both session to find your still-point, connect with your body and breath and come into the present moment to simply "be".
Suggested Donation according to means £0 - £5 for one 30 minute session All welcome.
Meet on Zoom
You just need to download the zoom app to your device, phone or PC in preparation.
If you want to practice lying down instead of sitting, then have available a mat, blanket, pillow and if you like more cushioning than a yoga mat, a thick blanket/sheepskin/sleeping bag to lie on.
Who is this for? These sessions are for you if:
You are a beginner to breathwork and want to learn techniques to calm body, and mind.
You know that breath is our fast track to the body's stress response system, and that it's crucial to master this in life.
You have experience of other breathwork, e.g. yoga or mindfulness, and would like an introduction to these particular types of breath.
You want to empower yourself by learning (or deepening) practices to use in your daily life, to meet stress, anxiety, trauma, menopause and other life challenges from a place of true empowerment through learning skills for life
You would like to enjoy some me time, in strongly held space, being guided to calm and nourish yourself, with facilitation tailored to your needs.
There is a vast body of scientific research that is growing every day, showing the benefits of breathwork to body, mind & spirit. There is an expression "heal your breath, heal your life" and it's my belief that this is true.
Benefits of breathwork sessions include:
Reduced blood pressure
Toned vagus nerve
Nervous system regulation
Stronger immune and digestive systems
Greater ability to manage emotions
Reduced anxiety and depression
Improved heart rate variability
Feel more empowered and energised
Breathe more freely in daily life and so flow with life more freely and creatively
Leave with practices and guidance information so that you can easily integrate the practices into your daily life
"Relaxed aliveness" is accessible to all of us; come breathe with us, calm your body and mind and find your still-point inside, let breath be our meditation.
I booked your class today for my mum, she is 84, has gotten through cancer, nursed dad through stroke for 2 years until he died, then had a different cancel and other illnesses. Covid has set her back.... so she was in great form today, it was her first zoom alone and she was touched by your kindness. Once she overcame zoom anxiety, she was able to relax. Such a difference to her hopelessness. She has been thinking on what you said, took notes and other things to follow up, thank you.
NEW Audio Guided Breathwork Album available now
This Breathwork and Relaxation Album is an extended version of my hour long Breathe Online classes, gestated during the last year since the first lock down. Tracks 1-6 are similar to the 40 min Breath Meditation & Relaxation sessions I offer online. I also have a few copies on CD for the old schoolers, otherwise it can be live streamed, or downloaded (MP3 etc.)
It’s designed to support healing, calm and resilience, recovery from long Covid included. Tried and tested over the last year, so on top of the supporting science , I really know first hand this works, as do many clients.
