The Evening Standard have another great piece concerning Rebecca Dennis and the Breathing Tree Workshops. Here’s an excerpt:
I was a tad sceptical too. Why do we need help with something our bodies automatically do?
Well, if we automatically breathe, we also automatically store our sadness, anxiety, excitement and anger in our bodies too.
Picture yourself nearing a deadline, feeling swamped as email after email rolls in and there are not enough hours in the day to address all of your tasks. Shoulders seize upwards, foreheads crinkle into frowns and breath becomes shallower.
My experience of the breathing workshop has been profound. My therapist, Rebecca Dennis, had me breathing deeply through my mouth whilst touching certain acupressure points and repeating affirmations.
