– Breathing technique to eliminate stress
– Skills to improve personal & professional challenges
– Ancient wisdom in a present context

Stress influences our lives in daily basis, often the mind hangs on to anger, guilt or regret about the past, or is affected by anxiety and worries about the future. This oscillation of the mind between the past and the future causes tension and stress for us and for the people around us.
Breath is the link between body and mind and it is the key to handle our emotions to deal with personal and professional challenges, to live life in fullest potential.
