Nourish through Breath Programme

The foundation of life long health

Diaphragmatic breathing is the foundation of life long health and wellbeing.  As a Tai Chi and Qigong instructor, I have created this course to help you:

  • learn what happens to your health if you breathe poorly over time
  • learn how to breathe properly
  • learn how to regulate and control the breath
  • learn how to apply the techniques to daily life

It seems like a simple thing to say "breathe better", yet most people breathe poorly and shallowly into the upper chest without awareness. Over time, the 'skill' of breathing that we had naturally as a baby becomes lost, and in turn the torso muscles and connective tissue become stuck, which means even if you wanted to, you are unable to take a full breath. Times that by a few decades and a sedentary lifestyle and you have a problem. There is more to breathing that it may seem.

If you are unwell, will your doctor discuss how diaphragmatic breathing is to vital to health, recovery, ability to detox and the effectiveness of your immune system?  Most likely not.  Whenever I teach this programme, people ask me why is this not taught to the general public?  Today's allopathic medical industry is far away from natural and holistic health. It is focused on isolated symptoms and pharmaceutical solutions.  This programme helps you take back your natural ability to improve the physiological systems of your body.  If breathing was marketed, this may be the result ->

Every mind body practice includes co-ordinated breathing as a discipline, whether yoga, pilates, Tai Chi, Qi gong, martial arts, meditation or mindfulness etc. Connecting to the diaphragmatic breath is a powerful way to improve your mind and body health, as well as being a fantastic practice for relaxing and grounding.

As my background is teaching Tai Chi and Qigong, the techniques in this programme are based on Traditional Chinese medicine and Taoist methods.  Learn the quiet power of qigong breathing, from sitting breath work to heavenly breath moving qigong.  Take the first steps into learning about Taoist v Buddhist breathing, how to incorporate the pelvic floor and side ribs, and how to pace the breath to be longer, deeper and fuller.  I pass on the mechanics to over time work up to take a full diaphragmatic breath with ease, whilst increasing your body awareness and sensitivity. These foundation exercises are an integral part of my own Tai Chi, Qigong and Taoist meditation practice, and I am delighted to shared them with you.

I have worked with students across a broad range of health challenges, from physical injury, through to degenerative and terminal health. At the very core of my teachings is the breath. Anyone can learn to breathe better. It's the one thing you continue to do when you cannot do anything else. If you are bed bound, training the breath or using the breath as a meditation practice helps regain some of the control you may feel you have lost. The techniques do not need to be complicated, a simple deep abdominal breath over 20 minutes whilst relaxing does wonders. It is the gateway to recovery.
