“No matter what you eat, how much you exercise, how skinny or young or strong you are, none of it matters if your’e not breathing properly.”

James Nestor, Breath.

Breathing should be the most natural thing in the world. We do it without thinking, almost 20,000 times a day. But are we breathing as efficiently and effectively as we can?

The way that we breathe is intrinsically linked to our health and wellbeing. Poor breathing techniques and dysfunctional breathing patterns are responsible for many health conditions, increasing stress and anxiety, impacting energy levels and even affecting our cardiovascular health.

Not all breathing practices are the same. Often something that works for one condition can exacerbate another. So what conditions can breathing therapy help with?

Breathing Therapy Can Help With:

  • Long Covid
  • anxiety and depression
  • Autoimmune conditions
  • breathlessness and asthma
  • brain fog
  • chronic or persistent fatigue
  • Chronic or persistent pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • panic attacks and hyperventilation
  • disturbed sleep and insomnia
  • non-specific low back pain
  • trauma and PTSD
  • IBS
  • Headaches and migraines

How does Breathing Therapy work?

Like any consultation involving your health, a breathing therapy assessment will include history taking, current medical status, contraindications to treatments and a physical breathing assessment.

Nadyne has experience of working with chronic health conditions and with acute mental health populations and has developed her own unique way of working combining breathing therapy, neuroscience, movement and mindfulness to help you transform your health and wellbeing.

The Nijmegen Breathing Test

Since the world has been exposed to Covid-19, we are now more aware of the breath and the effects of breathlessness than ever before. Learning to breathe well helps everyone. Not just the breathless.

The Nijmegen Breathing Test is an easy and reliable screening tool used in breathing clinics and in research to help identify Breathing Pattern Dysfunctions (BPD). It offers a broad view of symptoms associated with dysfunctional breathing and can help provide a short and responsive method of assessing breathlessness.

    Testimonial

    “I was referred to Nadyne by my GP for me terrible Long Covid breathing problems. I just imagined I’d learn some breathing techniques, but I’ve realised how much more I’ve learnt about myself from working with her. I felt instantly comfortable with Nadyne and she makes it clear that there is no pressure to get anything “right”.

    “Working with Nadyne has been incredible. I’ve struggled with my sleep since early childhood, and suffered with insomnia but now I’m sleeping! I’m still waking up, but I do my breathing and go back to sleep. I’ve tried everything so I can’t tell you how restoring this is for me.”

    Reviews & Testimonials

    "Working with Nadyne has been a life-saving exercise—literally"

    “Working with Nadyne has been a life-saving exercise—literally. I use the breathing practices at night in bed, just before sleep, and my Oura ring shows the very clear results - reduction in heart rate and increase in HRV. I even replaced the beta-blockers prescribed to me with the 6/6 breathwork protocol and achieved similar results, minus the awful side effects of that terrible medication... I am forever grateful to Nadyne for this method and for the open-hearted grace with which she teaches it.”

    Erin Sharoni

    "A very supportive and compassionate space"

    “Before the session with Nadyne, I was feeling very heavy with emotion, PTSD and lethargy due to being bed bound. Nadyne created a very supportive and compassionate space for me to show up as I was. Having experienced long covid herself, she 'gets it' - from the get go, we shared an instant comradery. Nadyne has a very healing and soothing voice; she guided me through powerful visualisation meditations combining colours, conscious breathing, a beautiful place in the world and visualising the breath moving through my body... ”

    Jasmine Hayer @jasminehayer_

    "incredible improvements in my symptoms"

    “I was recommended to see Nadyne after having long covid. I’ve been working with Nadyne coming up to 2 months and have seen incredible improvements in my symptoms and general health beyond covid. It’s been really interesting to see how powerful the breathing practices are, and the differences they can make to your physical health. As an asthmatic my breathing is the best it has been in years, a lot slower and calmer. One of the things I am most surprised about is my IBS has improved after 8 years and I’m able to manage my energy levels more effectively... ... ”

    Cat Vezmar

    "Exactly what we need..."

    “I want you to know that your approach in working with post-covid clients is exactly what we need: the calm and reassuring way you in which you provide a sense of hope and encouragement, the way you listen intently to the client and take notes, making the client feel heard and seen, and finally, the knowledge you have of the human body and ways to improve it are so appreciated”

    Anna, Long Covid since March 2020

    "You’ve been like a breath of fresh air"

    “Thank you so much for the session. It has been so useful. I have completed the practice daily and have not used my ventolin since last week. Although my lungs still don’t feel back to normal. I’m trusting more in my breathing which is really positive... You’ve been like a breath of fresh air after months of having no positive feedback from anywhere.”

    Mandy, Long Covid since October 2020

    "Thank you for all you’re doing"

    “I can’t describe how wonderful and informative I found the workshop. I was actually a little tearful at times as I have felt quite alone with my Long Covid symptoms and there is such a lack of information out there. Thank you for all you’re doing to heal people. It is really making a difference to many lives”.

    Holly, NHS Occupational Therapist

    "The classes really help me learn..."

    “The classes really help me learn techniques to avoid spiralling thought patterns. Focusing on the breath and always having the breath as an anchor helps me ignore any distracting thought processes. More than anything Nadyne’s classes are about breathing and how that can help you in mind and body.”

    Zoe Duerden

    "A greater sense of wellbeing"

    “I particularly enjoy Nadyne’s classes, not only because they’re effective and she knows her shit , but her energy is engaging and relaxing. I really feel like she takes time with each individual to help them get to grips with the practice as everybody has different obstacles and imbalances. Nadyne makes sure you’re being challenged in the right way. Already I’ve noticed my athletic performance improving in the gym. I’m noticing I have more range of movement and most importantly a greater sense of wellbeing has been achieved.”

    Jason, Personal Trainer

    "Helped relieve my anxiety"

    “I highly recommend Nadyne’s classes. You dive into an ocean of relaxation, calm and strength, challenging the body at all different levels. The classes have especially helped relieve my anxiety. It’s amazing the way the classes make you feel. I especially love the poems Nadyne sometimes reads. I have high anxiety and low confidence and you can’t help but find yourself in some of the beautiful poetry. Yoga is poetry in motion essentially.”

    Angela

    "I felt so much lighter energetically"

    “I did some more of the breathing yesterday and just sat with everything we did and said for the rest of the day. When I woke up this morning, I felt so much lighter energetically, it was amazing! I definitely feel more open. I love the process of how different modalities work. Thank you so much.”

    Michelle, Yoga Therapy Client

    "Nadyne has been amazing"

    “Nadyne is an absolute star! We started offering virtual yoga classes for all of our employees through lockdown to help them unwind and keep moving. Nadyne has been amazing at tailoring to all abilities and really understanding the needs of each and every individual... Classes with Nadyne have become the highlight of my week, it’s the only time that I feel like my mind is still and my body fully relaxed...”
