Breathwork by Davel Holveck-Patel

Darbar Festival

A taster session drawing on the universal sound of ‘aum’. Simple breathing techniques grounded in ancient practices create an optimal state of harmony with your brain and body. 

All are welcome as Davel Holveck-Patel guides you to tune into your own ability to energise or soothe yourself with the six/six breath. Understand how a few conscious-connected breaths per minute can reduce stress and anxiety, create a better mind-body balance and perhaps tap into higher states of consciousness.
