A Full Day of Conscious Breathwork with Christopher Gladwell

14 July 2024

Join leading Breathwork teacher Christopher Gladwell to embark on a transformative journey through breathwork techniques that merge scientific understanding with traditional wisdom. We will delve into the profound connection between breathwork and the teachings of Buddha. Discover transformative practices to deepen presence, actualize potential, and foster inner peace. Explore neurobiology, optimal flow states, and breath-specific techniques tailored for well-being. Led by experienced practitioners, this event empowers you to integrate mindfulness, discipline, and habit creation for lasting transformation. Take home practical tools to sustain growth and embrace life's full potential.

This workshop is suitable for all. If you are working with any physical or psychological conditions, please let us know in advance so we can tailor input accordingly.


Some prior experience with mindful movement practices will help, but isn't necessary. If you have recurrent pain or other health conditions please consult your doctor or physiotherapist before signing up for this retreat.

If you're unsure or have any queries related to mobility or accessibility, please get in touch.
