Campfire presents ‘Big Boost Mondays’ with Michael McCaffrey - The Breathing Space

We started a new decade of Campfire exploring fresh tools for the mind and body, as Michael guided the audience through breathwork techniques.

Michael shared his personal journey of wellbeing and how meditative breathing techniques have transformed his life. We explored the science behind breathwork to uncover the many benefits of heightened blood oxygen levels including increased emotional and physical wellbeing.

There were three breathwork activities throughout the session, including a guided arrival to conscious breath, the parasympathetic 4.7.8 technique and the sympathetic Wim Hof Method. The impressive Wim Hof Method enables increased energy, reduced stress levels, and an augmented immune system response that swiftly deals with pathogens.
