Event description

Date: 7 August 2024

Time: 7-9am

Venue: Hobartica, Mawson Place

Breathing is a potent, readily available relaxation tool that can divert the acute stress response and return the nervous system to its relaxed, restful state. Join scientist and wellness teacher Dr Rebecca Chabot to learn to harness the superpower of the breath. In this session, participants will learn the basic science around breathing and why learning to breathe better is tied to both mental and physical benefits. You will be guided through a variety of basic breathing practices and techniques that will introduce you to the power of the breath to improve mental and physical health and to relax. Immediately following the one-hour workshop, participants will have exclusive access to the saunas and cold plunge pools.

Access note: The breathing workshop is wheelchair accessible, but the sauna and plunge is not. Please contact us if you are interested in booking this workshop and have accessibility questions.

Please note: Cold water immersion is not recommended for people with heart or circulatory conditions. If you have any concerns about exposure to cold water or saunas based on your individual conditions or medications, always check with your doctor first.
