How do I know if breathwork is right for me?

Breathwork is for everyone. From elite athletes to those looking to de-stress, think more clearly and be more creative.  

However, we do recommend that you consult with your doctor if you suffer from epilepsy, asthma, obesity, heart problems, psychological conditions such as anxiety and depression or are pregnant, to ensure this deep breathing technique is suitable for you. Please make sure you have watched the Breathwork Introduction and Breathwork Safety videos before taking one of these classes.

You can read more about breathwork on our blog here.

What should I expect?

Breathwork will be different to anything you have experienced before. Make sure you have  a comfortable place to lie down and you may want to blanket to stay warm. During a class you may feel tingles in your arms and hands, or sensations in your body. This is totally normal. 

On a physical level, you’ll improve your lung capacity and oxygen efficiency, which will improve your physical performance. These breathing techniques retrain your nervous system so your body will respond differently in stressful situations. Breathwork is also reported to improve digestion and sleep.
