We do it 23,000 times a day. It is the body’s single most important function. And it has the ability to revolutionise how we feel. Yet breathing is often overlooked when it comes to healthy habits.
You may have heard of breathwork through people like Wim Hof (‘The Iceman’), James Nestor (Breath), Stuart Sandeman (Breathpod & Author - Breath in Breath out), Patrick McKeown (Oxygen Advantage). Or maybe you’ve come across different modalities such as pranayama (often used in yoga), The Buteyko Method, Holotropic Breathwork or transformational breath, the list is long.
BUT are you using your breath to your best advantage? Knowing how to breathe and how to use your breath purposefully has been proven to reduce negative mental and physical issues and heal the body and mind. Trust us, this isn’t Goop talk, this is science backed and more and more of us are finally giving it a go – even Chris Martin is an avid fan.
A regular breathwork practice is a really easy way for you to improve and change your physiology, think of breathwork as your superpower, you really can alter your physiology – from a cortisol-raised fight or flight state to feeling more relaxed, calm and centred.
Whether it’s taking your running to the next level, handling anxiety ahead of that that big work presentation, to managing everyday curve balls.

You'll learn the basics and progress to more advanced boxing combinations, you'll also have the opportunity to get in the ring and test run your padwork combinations. We've kept numbers low so you'll get lots of personal attention and the opportunity to ask lots of questions and learn plenty.
