Importance of Breathing Mechanics

Understanding why breathing is important to us is an easy concept to grasp…without air, we do not survive. However, very few people understand the true importance of breathing habits, and how proper training can improve quality of life and help us to perform better.

Although breathing is an unconscious process, the stressors of modern life create poor breathing habits that become ingrained within this unconscious process; causing a vicious cycle of overbreathing during rest, and leading to inefficient breathing during exercise and reduced performance.

This workshop is designed to teach you the basics of how the cardiorespiratory system functions to deliver oxygen throughout the body in the most effective way. It will also provide you with practical exercises you can use on a daily basis to build proper breathing habits and increase your athletic performance.
