Sarah Marsh: The Breath Course for Physios & Health Professionals


Wednesday 17th and Wednesday 24th November, 6-9pm

Breathing Better: helping our patients and ourselves to breathe better, looking at the science and the practice.



The link between our breath, body and mind is well documented. How we breathe impacts our whole body, our cardiovascular system, nervous system, energy levels and mood. This course is for healthcare professionals who see patients with chronic pain, pelvic pain, long terms conditions such as cancer, or those simply struggling with an injury. The anxiety these conditions bring impacts how we breathe. The continued impact and challenges around Covid-19 weaves into this anxiety too and can affect how we breathe. In this course we’ll look at assessing and changing breath patterns, the benefits of good breathing, and developing accessible breath practices to use with patients and ourselves.
