It was worth the long journey

The BradCliff Breathing Level 1 course had a high standard in relation to the subject Dysfunctional Breathing/Breathing Pattern Disorders and Breathing Retraining. It was a great combination of theory and practice. I enjoyed the many “hands-on” sessions and the small group discussions on the subject. The BradCliff team were experienced, had know-how and specialist knowledge on DB/BPD and Breathing Retraining and they complimented each other in a natural and positive way. This course gave me further and more detailed knowledge and the confidence to upgrade the Breathing Retraining Program at our clinic in Copenhagen. I’m looking forward to come back in August and join the BradCliff level 2 course!
