Exploring Breathwork with Sophie Belle. Sophie Belle is a Breathwork facilitator, founder of Mind You Club, co-founder of Squirrel Sisters, and Mum of two small children. She is passionate about the benefits of Breathwork and how it can really help people to reduce stress and calm anxiety.
Join Sophie for these 45 minute sessions to explore several breathing techniques all of which are aimed at relaxing, calming the mind and restoring the nervous system. Sophie will play music whilst you go through the breathing techniques, to gently help you relax and also give you a focus and ground you into the present moment.
These monthly sessions will enable you to have a little time in your day where space is held for you to let go, to be with your emotions and to feel more grounded and present.
Make sure that you have somewhere supportive and comfortable to either sit or lie down (or swap between the two) during the session. Ideally, find somewhere you will be undisturbed. You can come to the sessions and keep your cameras off so please do wear and locate yourself in a comfortable and relaxing environment as possible. Some people like to use an eye mask, headphones, and also keep a notebook nearby if things come up that they’d like to note down. It can also be good to have a drink nearby if you get thirsty. It’s advisable that following the session you have the opportunity to take care of yourself and don’t plan things that are too demanding or overwhelming, to drink lots of water and eat warm & nourishing food.

- Try and arrive on time for the start of the session if you can, if you do join late please mute yourself on entry to avoid disturbing others.
- In general it makes for a better group experience if people can see each other, but do feel free to turn your video camera off if you are not feeling up to being visible that day
- Make yourself comfortable and join the meeting from your favourite cosy space, but if your video camera is on, please check what can be seen by others. Although pyjamas are fine if you’re currently bed-bound, do dress in a way that is appropriate for a group gathering.
- Please keep yourself on mute unless you are talking, especially when there may be distracting noises in the background.
- Take part in discussions and question-and-answer sessions, if you want to, but please listen to others and help the meeting host to ensure everyone has time to speak if they wish. The group lead may suggest using the hands up icon or typing questions into
the chat box.
