BreatheSMART

BreatheSMART is the community based programme of PrisonSMART, and is currently running in Hackney and Brighton.It is a  practical and effective stress management programme initiating positive individual development targeted at those who live with personal and social problems of trauma, abuse, addiction, and violence, and who are maybe directly involved with, or on the fringes of crime and motivated to change.

It is also available to their relatives or friends in contact with similar life situations, or those who work with these groups.The programme teaches techniques providing a basis for self management, increased confidence, the ability to resolve conflicts, strengthening human values, reducing aggression, anxiety and dependence on addictive substances.

The techniques are mainly based on physical yoga exercises, dynamic breathing techniques, meditation and an introduction to knowledge points/life keys that, through reflection, work to help deal with their own feelings, thoughts and life circumstances.
Participants are also given the opportunity to tap into the Breathe SMART social community, which facilitates the knowledge points, keys and strategies taught on the course.
