Practice of conscious breathing

Wellbeing by Design is an original live series with Dr. Juliette Tobias-Webb & Vishal George. Explore research, insights and practical tools from behavioural science to design a mindful life with intention and purpose. We believe these wellbeing practices can support practitioners to feel better equipped to serve the beautiful humans around us.

In this conversation, we share our experiences on the "practice of conscious breathing". Share your breathwork strategies , questions and practices with us.

Vishal is the Chief Behavioural Scientist at Behavioural by Design — on a mission to make behaviour change tools more accessible for social, environmental and wellbeing outcomes. As a global practitioner he has embedded behavioural science into the heart of strategy for NZ Police, Starbucks (USA), Adobe (USA/ India), Public Health England (UK) and Westminster Council (UK) and many more.

Juliette has a PhD in Experimental Psychology from the University of Cambridge. She enjoyed stints as a lecturer and research officer at globally-renowned institutions including the University of British Columbia, the University of Sydney, Bond University, and Kaplan University. She has also published a number of journal articles in leading psychology and neuroscience journals.
