At LETE Active, we're all about empowering our community to reach their full potential, both physically and mentally. That's why we're thrilled to spotlight a transformative aspect of wellness that often flies under the radar: the art and science of breathing. Enter Abby Stewart, a trailblazer in the realm of respiratory physiotherapy, who's about to change the way you think about your breath.
Abby isn't just any expert; she's a New Zealand Registered Respiratory Physiotherapist, a Clinical Educator at AUT University, and the mastermind behind MindBodyUnlocked. With a special focus on dysfunctional breathing—a condition affecting more than 10% of us across all age groups—Abby's work is nothing short of life-changing. From tackling the aftermath of long COVID to easing the grips of anxiety, her approach is as compassionate as it is effective.
The Hidden Epidemic
Dysfunctional breathing might sound like a niche concern, but its impact is far-reaching. Imagine a condition that could mimic or exacerbate anxiety, asthma, and even chronic pain, yet remains largely underdiagnosed. That's the reality for many, and it's where Abby's expertise shines. Through meticulous assessments and tailored treatments, she's on a mission to bring this hidden health pillar into the limelight.
A Breath of Fresh Air
Abby's techniques are a blend of science and soul. From breath re-training to diaphragmatic strengthening, she employs a comprehensive toolkit designed to restore balance to your body's most basic function. It's not just about breathing easier; it's about enhancing your overall well-being, enabling a return to peak performance, and reducing symptoms that have long stood in the way of your best life.
Join Us for a Transformative Experience
We're beyond excited to announce that Abby will be leading a breath re-training workshop at our LETE community event on February 11th at Vellenoweth Green. This is your opportunity to learn from one of the best, to dive deep into the mechanics of your breath, and to emerge empowered to tackle whatever challenges come your way.
Why This Matters for You
Whether you're an athlete looking to optimize your performance, someone navigating the complexities of long COVID, or just seeking to improve your mental health, Abby's insights are invaluable. Breath work is more than a practice; it's a pathway to resilience, strength, and inner calm.
