Workplace health and productivity

Breathe | Sleep | Work | Play

This is the foundation seminar and workshop of the BreatheAbility for Health programs.  A groundbreaking, high impact presentation that can be adjusted to the needs of any group or organisation and is available in keynote, seminar and workshop formats. It is designed to enhance the sleep, health, fitness and wellbeing of participants and to improve workplace health and productivity.

  • Mental and physical fatigue
  • Lack of productivity
  • Anxiety, panic attacks
  • Absenteeism
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Poor sleep
  • Snoring, sleep apnoea
  • Insomnia
  • Relationship problems
  • Irritability

What can be the common denominator in all these conditions?

Improper breathing.


Most people don’t associate common physical and mental issues with poor breathing habits.  Fewer still connect improper breathing with poor work performance and sleep troubles – and the relationship struggles that can come from either partner’s sleep deprivation.  We all know how to breathe, don’t we? Well, no. Over 70% of people breathe incorrectly. Improper breathing is the single most-overlooked contributor to poor health, yet when’s the last time you were screened for proper breathing?

For employers, it’s an expensive problem. The relationship between poor breathing, sleep, and waking productivity is costing you plenty. Sleep-related breathing problems like snoring and sleep apnoea alone are increasing to epidemic proportions. They result in major physical and mental health problems, yet few understand the relationship between good sleep and proper breathing. Or that these problems can often be relieved without drugs, surgery, or devices. And then there is the Stress/Anxiety/Chronic Illness connection. Improper breathing disturbs blood chemistry and primes and feeds the stress response.

Breathing expert and physiotherapist Tess Graham delivers a life-changing presentation on BreatheAbility. Learn how better breathing habits can help you and your people get and stay healthy and energised –starting during the presentation! The seminar (one hour) is a powerful introduction to better breathing; the workshop (three hours) is an amazing transformation.
