This workshop immediately changed my teaching of breath. I have carefully integrated what I learnt into my teaching and I have seen the benefit to clients, to be a calmer, more rhythmic breathing pattern, requiring less effort and assisting them to relax physically and mentally.
Jakki Tobin – physiotherapist, Pilates instructor, Sydney
After completing the two-day training with Tess Graham in 2017, I began to observe my clients with fresh eyes. I noticed that over 80% of anxiety/trauma clients were mouth-breathers and had postures that reinforced their dysfunctional breathing. By implementing the BreatheAbility approach, I immediately observed clients experiencing and reporting easier, more stable results. This was not merely symptomatic relief but a foundation for ongoing, sustainable change for clients. As one client remarked: “I’ve now taken my life back by being able to manage my panic with an effective tool as breath retraining”.

Breathing retraining has been an important tool in my repertoire of treatment strategies for over twenty years. However, completing Tess’s course has completely changed the way I understand and address breathing issues among my clientele. Adopting her techniques has led to rapid progress in symptom relief early on in treatment, contributing to greater gains in therapeutic progress overall.

I am amazed by how rapidly comfortable nasal breathing can be restored in chronic mouth-breathing children in my practice through applying the simple postural and breathing adjustment techniques I learnt in this course. This transformation did not require the time and effort commitment of other approaches I had tried, nor does this approach involve taping of the mouth.Robynann Williams, B.App.Sc. (Speech Pathology) speech pathologist and orofacial myologist, Sydney
I am amazed by the usefulness of these simple techniques. I am able to help my clients with various chronic conditions including deconditioned, neurological and COPD to achieve better breathing control and improve on their mobility and balance more easily. May Kwan, community physiotherapist, Brisbane
This is a very worthwhile course for a physiotherapist wanting to enhance their knowledge and skills around breathing. In addition, providing breathing retraining programs has added a new dimension to my practice.

Earlier this year I was given a copy of Tess Graham’s first book and suddenly I felt as though I had hit the proverbial ‘jack pot’. The approach that Tess has developed over 25 years – BreatheAbility® – perfectly blended everything I had learned about breathing science up until then (and then more) in a way that deeply resonated with me and my clinical style. So, when the opportunity to train and mentor with Tess in Byron Bay presented I knew I absolutely had to find a way to make the long sojourn from Canada. Learning directly with Tess was such a special and life changing experience. Heather Grieve BSc. PT, RPT, Ontario Canada
