Qualifications & Focus
Wim Hof Method Instructor
I am a level 2 Wim Hof Method Instructor, with a solid knowledge base of biomechanics and biochemistry, ensuring participants have a thorough understanding of the principles and mechanisms of action. I pride myself in developing trust and connection with participants, providing a safe space to work through what may arise.
Heart Math Certified
Did you know that the heart sends more signals to the brain than the brain sends to the heart? These heart signals have a significant effect on brain function – influencing emotional processing as well as higher cognitive faculties such as attention, perception, memory, and problem-solving. HeartMath techniques provide scientifically validated tools for managing stress and anxiety. I can help you tap into your heart’s intuitive directions for the best choices.
As a licensed Physiotherapist, I have a unique systems-based approach to health, understanding that nothing in the body works independently. Focusing on the root cause of pain or dysfunction in place of the symptoms allows for lasting change.
I will help you to develop a better relationship with the breath and body. Developing an understanding of the respiratory system is a stepping stone to controlling energy, emotional well-being, reactivity, and productivity. The breath is the remote control of the nervous system, and the nervous system is the operating system of the body. Awareness of breath is awareness of self, and learning how to connect mind and body is paramount for health and well-being.
In addition to the above, I am a affiliate member with Global Professional Breathwork Alliance and an Accredited Professional Training Provider with International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine.
Guiding you through a holistic approach to wellness
I have combined my passion for breathwork with knowledge of anatomy and physiology and have developed an education system to teach people how to optimise their respiration, and how to use it as a tool for improved health and well-being. My own journey has been one of passionate curiosity, exploring the wide range of breathwork practices and the underpinnings of human optimisation. I teach not only the principles of breath, but also the foundations of health and performance.
Stress is not the enemy. Our relationship with stress can be one of negative response or positive adaptation. Instead of fighting against stress, we can learn to work with it to build resilience, forge new pathways to healing, and fundamentally re-write our stress response. We cannot separate ourselves from the stressors of modern life, instead we must create a more constructive relationship.
Through specific breathing practices, exposure to cold and training of mindset we can forge a resilient, robust system that is equipped to deal with today's world.
To breathe, move and feel 100% is achievable by all.
