Take a deep breath.
Concentrate. In… and out.
This is transformational breathing. You can pay £22 for a 45 minute Re:Breathe class at Eccleston Yards’ Re:Mind Studio, where you’ll learn to stay in the moment by paying attention to your inhalation. Or, at one of The Breathing Room’s Transformational Breath workshops, (£35 for 90 mins) you’ll take full conscious breaths to release old emotions and lighten your mental state.
Meanwhile, Richie Bostock, The Breath Guy, is about to launch Breathwork classes on online fitness platform Fiit. Breathwork, he says, is ‘when we consciously use our breathing to change our state of being.’He promises you can reduce stress and anxiety, increase energy levels, eliminate toxins, improve sleep and creativity, induce flow states and — gasp — increase athletic performance and cardiovascular health in just a few mindful breaths.
Fill your lungs, people.
