Do breathwork to control your Brain & Nervous System

Most people go through their entire life paying little attention to breath. Yet breath not only is synonymous with life but to a big extent controls the way our nervous system (mind) works as well as our metabolism. You can benefit from a breathing class if you :

  • are dealing with high levels of stress, anxiety or panic attacks
  • are suffering from insomnia, obstructive sleeping apnea or snoring
  • have low levels of energy, chronic fatigue
  • practice endurance sports



BreathWork“In just a few hours I understood how the breath and cold water can fire up the metabolism, increase mitochondria, brown fat and regulate hormones. This was all testament to the structure of the course and your delivery. Thanks to your encouragement and mentoring.” Melanie Hamilton | Actress


Breathing Classes are structured as follows :

  • Measure current respiratory capacity (ie. Controlled Pause, Breathlessness test)
  • 10 mins of improving the 5 qualities of breathing
  • 30 mins of developing respiratory function through hypoxic and hypercapnic breathing exercises. For athletes, this involves breathing during physical drills relevant to their sport
  • 10 mins of spine/shoulder mobilization & abdominal activation exercises to support respiration on a neuromuscular level
  • Breathwork to calm the nervous system or enter meditation.



“A particularly useful workshop in relation to the importance of nose breathing and the differences with mouth breathing. I was impressed by the passion that Anastasis and Ana have for the topic and how keen they are to apply it to their Yoga and Pilates teaching.” ~ Gialuca Bregoli (Feb 18)



Private classes are available for students online & in person in the following areas: City of London, Belsize Park and Highgate.

“What I really found great is how I learned to stay calm in the ice bath. I think anyone like myself that struggles with the cold, can benefit from this. Great also for burning body fat, increasing your metabolism.” ~ Pete Galliott | BBJ Blue belt UK National champion (Jul 17)
“I really enjoyed the Handstand and Wim Hof breathing workshop. I learned how to press into a handstand. And I managed to hold my breath for longer than before – so I was really excited by that. I definitely recommend the workshop.” ~ Adam Burgess | U23 World Champion in Galasport G1 (Aug 17)
