The Breath Intensive is a 5 day, non-residential course, which includes 10 breath bodywork sessions, individual and group coaching sessions and many psychologically based exercises that may offer support to those affected by anxiety, sleep problems, performance anxiety and/or blocks. Psyche Breathwork, developed by Ali Bell and Denise Borland, is informed by psychological bodywork understanding and is designed to create self-awareness, safety and space to let go of the patterns that do not serve the participant best. This course is designed to allow space for each individual to build awareness and learn about their own limiting beliefs and behaviours, while offering suggestions and theories on new possibilities.
As breath is at the baseline of all human experience, breathwork can be beneficial for everyone, especially those who are aware of restrictions or difficulties in their current breathing pattern. Optimising our breath can help in all levels of performance – personal and professional – as we require oxygen for every process in our system, we can take our system from a surviving breath, to a thriving breath. People who suffer from shortness of breath, anxiety, sleep problems, voice loss, low mood and anyone who uses their voice professionally can benefit from this grounding, powerful bodywork.
The Breath Intensive is a 5 day, non-residential bespoke course, that allows space for each participant to explore their personal needs and goals. Each day involves two breath/bodywork sessions, where the participants are coached through different breathing patterns to optimise intake, release body/muscular holding patterns that are no longer wanted/needed by the participant and offer space for meditation, processing and/or letting go.
As well as the Breathwork sessions, there is a huge emphasis of psychological education and understanding, with coaching sessions throughout the week. This course is designed to offer tools to take away at the end of the week. The ultimate goal is to offer grounding and processing techniques that are easy to apply in normal life situations.
