Read Ben's Biography.
Ligia has successfully implemented a Menopause protocol, which she helped devise to assist menopausal women all over the world. This unique strategy aims to transform women’s experience of the menopause and perimenopause into one where they have control and influence. Ligia helped design and apply the approach while she herself was dealing with her own challenges transitioning into Menopause... and it worked for her brilliantly.
Ligia gladly gave up her career in Interior Architecture in favour of becoming a certified Yoga teacher. Ever since she can remember she has sought out The Natural Simplicity in Life, and has now managed to find and master the natural way through this so often problematic phase, for everyone's great benefit.
Ligia was lucky to continue her journey working on this unique approach with Ben Wolff, the Founder of The Breathing Institute, who taught and guided her in acquiring skills and knowledge in Clinical Hypnotherapy, the Science and Art of Breathing, Neuroscience and EEG study, Chronobiology and Dream Yoga to name a few of the lenses brought to bear in this original and exciting highly effective work.
When she's not making things she likes baking things, planting things...breaking things.
Dr Minaxi Shantilal Gami | Guest Teacher
One of the great experts in the techniques and principles at play within the Breathing institute's (BITA) body of work, Dr Minaxi Shantilala Gami is something of an archivist for BITA, having been an active part of the organisation for the last 5 years.
She has a pure science background, and as a post-doctoral Principle Researcher at Kings's College London, utilised a novel method of gene targeting in C. elegans combining skills in Molecular Biology and Genetics.
Minaxi is putting all her self-experimenting and experience into ways to tell others useful and practical ways to take the heat, the anxiety, the fatigue, the fog and the sleeplessness out of the menopause.
We are delighted to have such an original thinker play such a key role in the development and execution of this important work on menopause for women everywhere.
