LONGEVITY BREATHING involves breathing with the whole body and has been used for millennia to enhance the ability to dissolve and release energy blockages in the mind and body whilst enhancing wellbeing and spiritual awareness. It provides an excellent foundation for meditation practice, calming the mind and allowing long, deep and focussed breath.

‘If I could only teach one qigong exercise that would have the maximum effect of changing people’s lives for the better, I would teach Longevity Breathing. Of all self help exercises, breathing properly is one of the most effective ways to improve overall health, decrease stress and mitigate the negative effects of aging.’
