World Mental Health Day 2023 - Charlotte Marsh

The Benefits of Better Breathing Do you want to inspire your children to adopt a healthy attitude to wellbeing, both in mind and body?

🦥Meet Susie Sloth!

Did you know? The way we breathe effects the blood chemistry and your brain receives signals 24/7 about your physical state. That information is processed and your nervous system reposnds accordingly, regulating how safe or unsafe your physical body feels and relaying that into your mind's thoughts.

Using her unique kids book Susie Sloth and her Secret Superpower, author Charlotte Marsh has designed a fantastic supportive approach for children of all ages. Charlotte is a qualified kids Pilates teacher and Buteyko breathing coach. After recovering from chronic pain, Charlotte discovered that Pilates is an excellent form of movement for all bodies, often used in rehab as well as for long term health. Breathwork based on Buteyko principles is an NHS backed approach and suitable for many conditions including stress recovery, shortness of breath, anxiety, sleep issues and more. This book is the first of its kind and has already received fabulous endorsements from Patrick McKeown of Buteyko Clinic International, Glenn Withers of Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute, from teachers, parents, a GP, osteopaths, and many more! The breathing practices are all themed to match the animals in the story and perfect for kids. 🦥 Susie Sloth makes friends with animals who each have a special skill BUT can anyone guess her secret superpower?
