Among our members there is a mixed response to the approach of such courses. While they clearly help some, they will not be right for everyone. The McGuire programme and Starfish Project  both teach similar techniques but are very different in their size, structure and cost.

Costal breathing resources has a series of podcasts on costal breathing.

There is a 'Keep it costal' app linked off our Apps and software page.
