Many of us live sedentary lifestyles, sitting for up to eight hours or more a day hunched over our keyboard - all the while rarely taking a proper breath! Even if we wanted to take a deep enriching breath into the lower lobes of our lungs, we are limited due to our posture. Often due to the stresses and strains of a busy work and life balance, our unconscious brain can develop a pattern of holding, irregular and shadow breaths.

Does this sound like your experience?

Not being able to breathe properly is the key cause of many chronic respiratory diseases (Nestor, 2020)

Calligratherapy combines science journalist James Nestor's theory on proper breathing with the philosophy of ancient Chinese calligraphy to promote a state of optimal wellbeing. It is developed by Xin (Alice) Huang and is guided by Alice and her mother Lin Jin.

It involves a traditionally elegant art form that is both positively stimulating and calmly meditative. You will be delighted by the experiential expression in your own unique style.

A series of 5 Sunday afternoon sessions for people at any level is offered by Alice, who is one of the team at Aberdeen & Associates, a holistic health practice based in a character-building located in the beautiful Botanic Gardens - a 2-minute stroll from the top of the cable car.

It starts on 21st Nov from 1:30-3pm for 5 Sundays and finishes on19th Dec.

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to:
- Start a new creative practice in Chinese soft brush calligraphy
- Better manage everyday stress levels and access a calm, empowered and positive state of mind
- Develop your own mindfulness strategy
- Create a Christmas themed calligraphy artwork and take it back home
- Your name or a name of your choice written in Chinese

The total cost for the series of 5 workshops is $125 and includes everything you'll need. Attendance at individual sessions may be considered subject to availability.

All you need to bring is yourself, your smile and open and curious heart.

Enrolment will be confirmed on receipt of payment.
