Take a Breath

St Ives, Cornwall

5 - 12 May 2018

A one-week workshop in Cornwall, with time for a holiday. The course includes a one-to-one Functional Integration session.

Is it a while since you stopped to take a breath? When life gets hectic, moments to reflect, and remember who you are and what is important, can be few. This week is structured to give you time for those moments, time to move from hectic to tranquil.

In this workshop we will take breath as the focus for our attention. Breath quickly responds to altered states - becoming shallower and deeper, quicker and slower, even stopping now and then. The availability of breath can be felt in the rib cage, heard in the voice and contributes to overall vitality.


Three hours Awareness through Movement class time most days (no class on the Wednesday), and one individual Functional Integration session during the week. This leaves plenty of time to enjoy Cornwall in the Spring.

Cost: £265

Booking and Payment
