Breathe with Leah.
Do suffer with anxiety, stress, overwhelm? Do you struggle sleeping or have digestive issues? What if I told you there are really easy, practical tools that can support your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing?
I absolutely loved your class. I've never done breathwork before and I was fully involved. I felt like it had a real effect on me, I felt calm and very emotional when I left. Like I was letting go of tension that I've been carrying around with me for a long time.
About Calm Confidence
Leah first realised the power of breathwork after having her first child. Seeing how it could carry her through labour was amazing. She found it easy to integrate a daily breathwork practice into her hectic routine as a Mum and during the working day.
When working from home, breathwork became a lifesaver, giving a revived sense of energy between back to back Zoom calls. Or by using it to unwind at the end of a stressful day.
It's amazing how such a simple and accessible practice can bring such calm and rejuvenation, in such a short space of time.
Leah runs an intimate in-person class on the first Sunday of each month at the Sunshine and Soul Studio, Stalybridge.
Practice breathwork from the comfort of your own home - perfect for alternative birthday/hen parties, or baby showers. I also offer private 1:1.
Leah runs regular workshops providing the opportunity to deepen the practice. She also delivers bespoke workshops for Corporates and large groups.
Breathwork is the simplest, most accessible and effective tool for managing our nervous system.

The Benefits of Breathwork
There's so many amazing benefits of breathwork for our physical, mental and emotional well-being. Here's just a few.
Increase in energy
Breathwork improves the oxygen levels in the bloodstream which can lead to feeling an increase in energy levels.
Improves the respiratory system
Taking fuller, longer diaphragmatic breaths tones not only the diaphragm but also increases the lungs capacity and relaxes the supporting breathing muscles e.g. the intercostal and trapezius muscles.
Regulates the nervous system
The vagus nerve, which plays a role in regulating the Autonomic Nervous Systems (ANS), runs down the spine from the brain and has nerve endings which run through the diaphragm. The vagus nerve activates the rest and digest response to bring you out of fight or flight mode. Diaphragmatic breathing massages the vagus nerve and actives the rest and digest response.
Helps to detoxify (healthy lymphatic system)
Around 70% of our toxins are released through breath. Deep breathing during breathwork helps to detoxify the body, boosts lung capacity and promotes a healthy heart. The expansion of the diaphragm also massages the lymphatic drainage system which helps to expel toxins more effectively.
