Ever since I can remember, I suffered from breathlessness. From living with a nebuliser in my bedroom as a small child to aid with frequent asthma attacks, to experiencing various life hiccups later in life, I’ve suffered through many periods of shortness of breath, which only exacerbates stress and anxiety.
After years of practicing yoga and some pranayama (yogic breathing techniques) my asthma improved a little. In 2017, I was diagnosed with secondary breast cancer, which had spread to the liver. I have lived for a few years now with no evidence of active disease.
During chemotherapy, I qualified as a total yoga nidra teacher, advanced Breath Body Mind coach, International Buteyko Clinic Instructor and professional hypnotherapist.
I have been very lucky to train with Dr Richard Brown, MD, Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Columbia University, Dr Patricia Gerbarg, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at New York Medical College. I am proudly one of of a few in the world of their Level 3 Breath-Body-Mind(TM) teachers. I am also a qualified Buteyko Breathing Instructor having trained with world renowned Patrick McKeown.
