About the facilitator - Nadyne McKie
Nadyne is a Yoga teacher and fully qualified Yoga Therapist, and runs a Breathing Therapy practice alongside a Physiotherapist in Tunbridge Wells, Kent. She is founder of Mindful Movement Method.
Nadyne is studying for her Masters in Health Psychology, and her main area of research is long Covid. She specialises in rehab and recovery for long Covid, and other long-term health conditions such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Breathing pattern disorders are often prevalent in these conditions, and Nadyne has first-hand experience of the power of the breath, and sees it as key to managing symptoms and supporting recovery.
Nadyne also works in acute mental health services with individuals experiencing chronic stress, trauma, anxiety and depression. Oxygen Advantage breathing techniques are an accessible way for people of all ages to make changes that impact their health by soothing and regulating the nervous system.
“I spent many years living in a state of chronic anxiety, holding my breath and re-living a fear response in my body. Learning about the breath and the impact this can have on the nervous system made lasting changes to my mental and physical health. I really enjoy working with people to help them explore how something as simple as how we breathe can change our quality of life”.
Nadyne is fully insured and works online, and in person teaching to individuals and small groups. She teaches Mindful Movement Method classes online for long Covid, and also provides corporate companies with breathing workshops to combat stress, and online corporate classes for mental health and wellbeing.
