Being and breath – a gentle exploration of the sensations and meanings of the breath

Thursday 4th February
Reading Room, Wellcome Collection, Euston Road, London, NW1 2BE


Come to the Wellcome Trust Reading room for a relaxed workshop on the breath. We will explore what moves when we breath and how breath and emotions interact. Related books and artworks from the Collection will be available to browse. The workshop will be seated and is open to all. This is a free drop-in event – no booking necessary.

There is lots of free stuff to do in the Wellcome Collection –  visit the galleries and exhibitions (including one on Tibetan Buddhist yogic and meditational practice and their connections to physical and mental wellbeing), eat in the cafe and browse the bookshop (all open 10am to 10pm).


Dr Elaine Westwick is interested in all things embodied. Her teaching of movement is inspired by the beauty of the natural world and is interwoven with ideas from science.
