However, if there is another topic your workplace is seeking guidance on, please feel free to reach out. I may be able to offer workshops on other topics if the subject is within my scope of practice.  Please connect with me regarding pricing.

In this workshop, participants will gain a deeper understanding of mindfulness and its principles, learn about why it is beneficial, have an opportunity to engage in a guided mindfulness practice, and gain strategies of how to incorporate mindfulness into their day-to-day.

Breathwork

Breathing is something we do unconsciously about 20,000 times every single day. Breathing is easy, but it’s anything but simple. Our breath is both a gateway to and an indicator of our physical and mental health. (Re)learning to breathe can regulate our physiological and psychological stress response that occurs at the level of the Autonomic Nervous System, which controls our involuntary bodily functions (ex. heart rate, blood pressure, physical tension digestion, release of stress hormones, etc.).  In addition, (re)learning to breathe can improve sleep, assist in the management of strong emotions, strengthen the immune system, improve energy level, and enhance mood.  In this workshop, participants will learn about the healing power of the breath, practice breathing strategies, and gain tools to improve their well-being.
