In our attempts to keep evolving with these times, we are looking to bring more practical elements to you.
Today we bring you our second practical session diving into some basics of beginning a breathwork practice.
This is an ideal breathwork technique to reduce anxiety and feel calmer. You can do this technique when you wake in the morning, or at anytime of day when you want to feel calmer.
In this video you will learn:
By practicing breathwork regularly, you will become better and better at regulating your stress response to feel calmer, healthier and more resilient to stress.
For most of us today, disconnecting from our bodies and movement might feel like the only option available to us.
We privilege our thoughts and minds, without being curious about their relationship to the rest of who we are.
Doing this, we end up feeling out of balance with our ourselves, community and our world.
You’ve probably heard the term embodiment thrown around a lot lately. But what does it even mean? Don’t worry because your confusion will end with this video.

Welcome to this guided energy centre breath meditation. This is a 50 minute deep practice ideal for anyone looking to clear energetic blocks and reconnect to your innate self.
This guided breath practice will enable you to activate your autonomic nervous system so that the energy centres of your body and the energy field around your body become more in balance.
You will be releasing stored energy from within your centres, which can lead to a release of trapped emotion leaving you feeling lighter, revitalised and reconnected with yourself.
By becoming familiar with what each energy centre feels like and learning to balance and harmonise each one, you create a greater state of internal alignment and congruence as well as brain coherence. In this way, and through regular practice, you can unstuck from old patterns of thought, emotion and behaviour that no longer serve you.
The terms being “fit” and being “healthy” are often interchangeably used in the same category, describing an ideal state we should work towards if we value a strong quality of life. However, the terms “fit” and “healthy” are actually two different states of being by definition. Both are important to live an optimal life, where people either embrace, ignore or define to various extents and measurements.
Personally I see many people achieving great measurable levels of fitness and then assume they are healthy as a byproduct. But this is very often not the case. An example of this is where an athlete’s drive can push those who aren’t familiar with principles of physiology, to unintentionally create anxiety patterns and chronic health issues that worsen with training.
I’ve seen all sides of this topic in great detail from coaching Olympic athletes, being personally addicted to training myself and now living a...

So many of us walk around with low self confidence, constantly afraid of stepping into our power. And this is especially true for people with a newly awakened spiritual awareness.
The reason there is such low self-confidence and personal power is because our western culture expects us to be anyone else except for our true authentic self. We walk around fragmented with different masks on depending on the situation we find ourselves in to be accepted as a perceived “normal” no-one inherently is.
Imposter syndrome, the self doubt, fraudulence are how that shows up.
This idea is so broadly accepted until we begin to know who we actually are.
But here’s a wake up call for you… it’s impossible to materialise your confidence and personal power whilst perceiving through the same lens.
Without opening up to new perspectives and wisdom.
The spiritual path can be a lonely one, yet there is a wisdom available to each of us if we choose to use it. In particular,...

Meditation is one of the most powerful daily practices you can do for yourself.
But meditation is a vast and very misunderstood practice in our modern western culture. For one there are just so many ways to do it which creates overwhelm for many.
I have so many people asking me how do they know if they are doing it right and that they aren’t sure of the exact benefits that they are going to receive.
Once I teach people the basic skill of keeping their attention on their inhale and exhale of each breath, I then begin to teach them about their energy centres of their body.
The reason I do this is because if your energy centres are blocked it can lead to significant conditions within yourself:
That’s right - our energy body and health profoundly influence the quality of our life. From our health and wellbeing through to our...
My mission is to make you aware that extraordinary performance is really just a very ordinary set of lessons you can use to live your fullest life. I know this because I worked as an Olympic coach for 16 years. Each and every one of us is uniquely extraordinary already.
The hardest part is remaining consistent and being comfortable with the discomfort of learning and changing. Being ordinary ruthlessly well is the extraordinary part.
Since moving away from Olympic sport, the areas of work I get asked to be part of fascinate me. I was recently interviewed by Sean and Matt at The Two Sales Guys, and I really enjoyed the great conversations we had.
The Two Sales Guys: https://www.thetwosalesguys.com/
We dive deep into topics such as personal mastery, flow, peak states, embodiment, end of life, stress, resiliency and what performance really means to me now - HINT it's not about medals!
Their mission on The Two Sales Guys is to talk about how to cope with the pressures of being in sales...
