Life & Breath Workshop in Ramadan

Breathwork to Support Fasting

Fasting during Ramadan can be a challenge, particularly for those of us who live busy lives, full of responsibilities that continue to require our attention. Removing food and drink from our daily intake during this time invites us into a deeper exploration of alternative sources of nourishment and energy, one of which is the air that we breathe.
