We are introducing a new series of fascinating Breath for Life Workshops at the Shala which will explore the most important discoveries in breath research from both ancient wisdom traditions and modern science. Self styled breath master Ben Wolff is joining our team to share with us the healing power of the breath and how breath can be the most powerful tool we have. An astounding 95% of our energy comes in from the breath, 70% of waste that the body eliminates goes out through the breath. The breath is therefore the first place we should look to affect change with a wide range of conditions from insomnia to panic attacks, asthma and depression.
Ben Lectures in Yoga and Clinical Psychology at Canterbury Christchurch University, is a tutor for Uma Dinsmore-Tuli's Yoga Nidra Teacher Trainings, is part of the think tank by Heather Mason "Yoga 4 the NHS” and is co-course designer and co-tutor of the CPD Advanced Yoga Nidra for teachers and therapists. Brought on by his recovery from serious illness and 3 years of continuous research and investigation, Ben Wolff will share his findings in ways that are open and accessible to everyone. In each workshop you can expect to hear what's most useful, rapidly effective and easy to learn and participate in simple and safe breath practices that have worked in over 150 countries around the world.
