High Altitude Vacationing
with Carole Freeman
If you are planning a mountain vacation in 4-6 weeks, TAKE THIS CLASS NOW
High Altitude Vacationing is for people who are planning to vacation in a mountain region. The higher altitude reduces the amount of oxygen that will reach the body’s tissue, including the brain. You may have heard of people going to Denver, and other high-altitude locations, to train for elite sports. But we won’t need an elaborate training center. You’ll progress through 10 exercises, over 4 to 6 weeks, that will help your body begin to adapt to the higher altitude while still at home at sea level. Changes in your body will include an increase in Red Blood Cells, giving your blood more oxygen-carrying capacity prior to your vacation. You will learn a more functional breathing pattern that gives greater tissue oxygenation and less shortness of breath. Using the new, more optimal breathing pattern, will allow you to maintain a higher oxygen level and ease of breathing while on vacation.
