Breath-Taking 101

$37

with Carole Freeman

Life is easier when you breathe easier. It’s estimated that 85% of us unknowingly use some type of poor breathing pattern that’s connected to feeling sick and tired. This class has helped many people feel healthier and stronger simply by learning to switch their every-day breathing to a more beneficial pattern.

Breath-Taking at Night

$37

with Carole Freeman

The #1 reason why so many people are sick and tired

This class teaches you how to fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, stop snoring and wake up feeling rested.

You’d be shocked at how many health disorders are related to, if not caused by, faulty breathing during sleep. While many people feel there’s nothing they can do about snoring or waking frequently at night, they’d be just as surprised to know there’s more you can do about it than you think.

You and I know that you can’t possibly have your highest brain power, do your best performance, and function at your highest level when you are chronically fatigued and drained from a lack of deep restful sleep.

High Altitude Vacationing

$47

with Carole Freeman

Don’t spoil your trip to a higher altitude - condition your body first. People often feel shortness of breath, lightheaded and fatigued at higher altitudes because their bodies work harder, while taking in less oxygen. Anxiety increases, your enjoyment decreases. You’ll have more energy, feel better and enjoy your trip when you condition your body first to increase oxygenation and endurance. Do the same preparation that elite athletes do with this 4-week, self-paced course at home, even if you live at sea level. You will receive a link and a code for this class after you have registered and paid.

Surviving Stress

$37

with Carole Freeman

How to take your emotional system from Depletion to Renewal

It’s estimated that more than 90% of people who suffer with chronic anxiety or stress have breathing pattern disorders. Also known as dysfunctional breathing. The nervous system’s normal response to stress, anxiety, frustration fear, all involve stimulating a particular breathing pattern of shallow, upper airway, open mouth breathing, with tightened abdominals, which are designed to help us run from a burning building or fight off an attacker. If we are under chronic mental, emotional, or physical stress, this breathing pattern becomes a habit as our ‘default’ breathing which is not good because it stimulates the brain to perceive more stress and anxiety. At this point, this ‘default’ breathing pattern is working against us and is known as “dysfunctional”.
