Every day you breathe about 30,000 times. If you are like most people, you have no idea how you breathe. You only notice your breathing when it becomes difficult or painful, or you are breathless. Yet breathing is such a fundamental part of life. Every single cell in our body is dependent on how we breathe so it makes sense that better breathing will improve other body functions.
Better breathing can change your life. By improving the way you breathe, you can experience…
- higher levels of energy and creativity
- improved performance at work and playing sport
- reduced stress levels
- reduced chronic or acute pain
- increased sense of well being
- better sleep
- improvement in many health conditions including allergies, asthma, breathing pattern disorder (BPD) and respiratory diseases.
Achieving a higher level of health and vitality is not difficult. Come along to this workshop and discover for yourself. Helpful for asthmatics, and anxious and shallow breathers. A wonderful opportunity to relax and destress.
In this 4-hour workshop, you will learn what to do to improve your breathing, and how to do it. Learn some basic anatomy and physiology so you understand how your body is designed to function in breathing. Easy to follow take-home notes will help you remember what you learn at this workshop. Wear comfortable clothes including pants. Yummy morning tea provided.
Brenda Stickley, Certified Feldenkrais ® Practitioner, Yoga Instructor and 20+ years nursing and nursing education will lead you through every step of the workshop. Brenda provides a sensitive, safe and relaxed environment to support your learning.

What others say about this workshop
“I attended the workshop because I was curious. How could better breathing improve my wellbeing? At the end of the four hours I felt euphoric! And also relaxed, empowered and knowledgeable. This positive shift has continued for me. I use the workshop notes to continue to explore the breathing lessons we did. If I do revert to former unhealthy breathing patterns, I recognise that I have “slipped.” My body very quickly reminds me. I love that I have a heightened sense of connection between my mind, body and breath.” – Kim Diamond, Petone
“When I exercised I was always short of breath – it felt as if something was blocking my throat. It affected my motivation to do any form of exercise so I got very lazy. At the end of the Better Breathing workshop I felt like my rib cage had expanded and I was breathing much easier. And I still feel so much better because of my improved breathing. Sometimes when exercising I think “breath in breath out” to help myself – but without the workshop, I would still be puffing and struggling along. I have joined the gym again and find exercising much more enjoyable!” – Heather Falconer, Tawa
“Being new to the Feldenkrais Method, I attended the Better Breathing workshop keen to learn, but with some reservation. However, I left the workshop feeling educated, enlightened and extremely pleased I attended. Brenda was highly professional and provided not only a clear understanding of how we breathe, but I also learned to breathe more effectively – improving my life and wellbeing. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming making me feel almost instantly at ease, and the morning tea was superb, catering for any dietary needs. Thank you, Brenda for an exceptional workshop.” – Marilyn Wright, Kapiti Coast
