WIGWAM FORUM 4
with Joe Gamble
"The sessions have helped me enormously to relax and improve my daily posture and breathing"
2-2.30 pm on Mondays
Yoga Healing Breathing sessions with Nikki Jackson
Our first four sessions were so popular Nikki is back with more - see below details of how to book your place.
In the sessions we will gently release tension in the chest area which helps to open the lungs, followed by traditional breathing practises that help to increase the flow of 'vital energy' or 'prana' around the body which helps to restore and heal cells, organs and bodily systems. All abilities welcome and can be practised standing or sitting on a chair.
Nikki Jackson has taught yoga (educational) and yoga therapy (explorative) for 30 years and recently ran one of our Wigwam Forums.
"The breathing sessions with Nikki have been really valuable to me since it reminded me how to breathe properly...getting back to the basics of breathing. My life can be stressful in certain moments...somehow I forget to breathe fully, and my breaths are shallow...But thanks to Nikki, I learnt valuable breathing techniques to address these moments, and I especially enjoyed the breathing for different parts of your lungs" Participant
