‘A new world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing’

– Arundhati Roy.

In order to support our own health and that of our children, we invited Ela Manga to talk St Peter’s Prep staff and parents about a way of managing our stress and that of our children. As she says: Dysfunctional breathing habits develop over time due to chronic stress, poor posture or past trauma. These unconscious habits, in turn, exacerbate the stress response and push tension even deeper into the body.
