Let the Menopause be the Pause That Works For You. Finally, Something That Works, For every woman, everywhere.

Course Overview

In this short course, Ben Wolff and Ligia Cannon from the Breathing Institute  present this new and much anticipated livestreamed VIRTUAL course. You will learn how a new approach to the Breath, Physiology, Neuroscience, Chronobiology, and Clinical Hypnotherapy can alleviate up to 80 percent of the unwanted feelings, moods, brain fog, pains, and temperature fluctuations, uniquely.

The first and best way of managing hormones is to balance the systems of the body. The easiest way to do this is through the breath. Without noticing, our breath changes prior to the onset of the life change. To learn how to regulate, control and prevent the fluctuations in temperature and mood there is a way of breathing that allows women to have an altogether more pleasant and empowering way of navigating their life change. These  useful, rapidly effective and easy to learn breathing techniques are combined with important visualisations and clinical hypnotherapy to return balance and equilibrium to your physiological, psychological and emotional state.

This course has been carefully designed to have maximum impact with minimum commitment in terms of time and energy (7 hours over a week) and finances (£75 for the whole course).

Course Content

This course will provide you with clinically proven, effective tools to help alleviate symptoms including but not limited to:

  • hot flashes and night sweats
  • temperature change and sleep disruption
  • mood disorders and anxiety
  • weight gain
  • memory and brain fog
  • anger, rage and temper
  • pain, cramps and aching body

We will also look at how allowing optimum breathing patterns can enhance cognitive function, physical energy and a balanced awareness. You will learn both the practice and theory of protocols, which have reduced up to 80 per cent of symptoms in our case study trials, the results of which can sometimes be instantaneous.

The course is suitable for anyone from the general public who has suffered enough and would like to learn simple tools to help support themselves or a loved one during this time. Researched in private clinical trials, this is a natural intervention and practice without any supplements or additional treatments. And only positive side-effects!

For anyone wishing to use these techniques to work with others in a professional capacity, we run a 30-hour training for teachers, therapists, life coaches and health care professionals.

Teacher Bio

Ligia Cannon

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.
