BRAND NEW Breathwork programme for Primary schools

Derval's breathwork programme has had a massive impact on my anxiety in the classroom and at home. It is an instantly accessible tool and requires zero planningI absolutely love it, the kids do too. During the covid year it has been an absolute Godsend.
