Wellbeing and Resilience
Learn a range of wellbeing and resilience-building techniques to help you manage daily stresses and experience better physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. Each class will focus on building resilience, using a range of different techniques.
Breathwork will be a foundational part of each week's course (specifically the teaching of a technique known as Transformational Breath), bringing many benefits including increased energy, reduced feelings of stress and anxiety, better sleep, detoxification of the body, deep relaxation and calmness.
As well as the breathwork, each week will have a focus on one or more other techniques designed to boost resilience, and improve overall wellbeing.
Who is this course for
This course is for anyone. It is especially useful for people who experience stress in their lives, or who wish to find a simple way to reduce stress, feelings of anxiety and to improve their overall sense of wellbeing.
What does this course cover
The course will explain the fundamentals of the Transformational Breath technique, as well as other techniques designed to build resilience and improve wellbeing.
What will it be like
The beginning of the course will cover some theory and information about the Transformational Breath technique and the benefits that using it will bring.
Each week we will cover a small amount of theory to provide context for that session, but most of the course will be very practical, involving exercises to help participants gain a greater understanding of their own bodies, and how to build resilience within them.
Each session will also feature the opportunity to have experience a Transformational Breath session, with guidance and support from a trained facilitator.
At the end of each session there will be the opportunity to ask questions and to share experiences.
Students will also be given information and advice on how they can practice the techniques learned at home on their own so that they can develop a continuing practice.
What else do you need to buy or do
Students will need to bring a bottle of water with them and if possible a blanket and a pillow.
Yoga mats will be provided.
There are no additional study requirements
