Hazel is also a certified breath coach and her interest in Breathwork started as a personal journey as a way to improve her own focus and performance as an ultra runner. Most of us are stuck in auto pilot and living life by default rather than design. Hazel uses Breathwork to bring about real physiological and psychological change. There are many benefits to having a breath coach and by changing the way we breathe.
These include helping to:
Breath Coaching or ‘ Breathwork’ is nothing new it is the combination of many ancient and traditional breathing techniques and modern science. Breathing is something that we take for granted, it happens automatically, yet it is 100% in our control and by manipulating our breath we can experience both psychologically and physical benefits. Our ideal breath rate is 6-8 breaths per minute, however most people breath in excess of 15 breaths per minute.
If you suffer from sleep disruption, snoring, excessive yawning Breathwork could help. Breathwork can also be used to help centre a person if they are feeling nervous, overly excited, anxious, angry or just want to restore balance and gain clarity. Children respond really well to breathwork and it is a great personal skill for them to have. If you have any other questions and want to know more contact Hazel.
The International Coach Federation (ICF) defines coaching as partnership between coach and client in a thought provoking process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential.
We all have goals we want to achieve and challenges and barriers to overcome. Perhaps you are looking for a new direction, or just need someone who is going to listen to you. Hazel has experience with adults and teenagers so perhaps your teen is stuck in a rut.
The sessions may take place sitting on a chair, the floor or lying down. The first session will be a combination of breathing tests and explanations. We will explore different types of breathing exercises for you to do to help you in whatever capacity you need. The success to Breathwork is consistency and practice. Please wear comfortable clothing.
