Breath-Taking Basics

$37

with Carole Freeman, Five Town CSD Adult & Community Education

What if you are breathing all wrong?

Breath-Taking classes aren’t just about breathing, everyone knows how to breathe and we know that if you stop breathing, you die. But, if you never learn how to breathe well, you go on to become sick and tired. Since breathing is something you do every moment you’re alive, learning to breathe well becomes one of the most essential factors in feeling your best and doing your best every day.

The most important thing to know about Breath-Taking online classes is that they’re not about learning a single special technique. Courses are developed from the entire medical field of identifying and correcting Breathing Pattern Disorders.

It’s estimated that 85% of us currently have some type of breathing dysfunction that’s connected to feeling sick and tired. Or at the very least, more sick and tired than we need to be.

with Carole Freeman, Sanford Community Adult Education

We are so excited to offer this wonderful series of courses with Carole Freeman of York.  Each class is a "stand-alone & self-paced" session that you can register for and then take at your own convenience!  Monday morning, Sunday afternoon, Friday night?  It's up to you!  Each class has a specific focus with information & exercises unique to its topic.

Breath-Taking for Childcare Workers & Parents

We'll connect the dots between your child's Breathing Pattern and their Childhood Development affecting overall health for the rest of their life.

It’s estimated that 85% of us have some degree of dysfunctional breathing. Much of this starts in childhood and has dramatic consequences on our health, our brain function, and our appearance over our lifetime.

Since you breathe every moment of your life, how you breathe has surprising effects on your health every moment too. Everything from the shape of your child’s skull and facial features to the function of their lungs is dramatically impacted by their habitual breathing patterns. This is where you can make a dramatic difference in your child’s life.

 

Carole Freeman, B.S. RRT, Breathing Specialist

Carole’s background has been equal portions of respiratory therapy, exercise physiology, and massage therapy.  Her career as a respiratory therapist began at Loma Linda University Medical Center where she discovered that most adult patients were in the hospital because of poor lifestyle choices. That inspired her to attend graduate school at LLUMC, majoring in Health Sciences. She now focuses her work in a relatively new field of pulmonary medicine - recognizing and treating breathing disorders.  She has personally benefitted from improved breathing patterns, “I have found that each day I was mindful of my breathing pattern, I gained more energy, and my breathing became easier. It felt like I was turning the clock back as I continued to gain strength and endurance.”

Breath-Taking Online is a school that encompasses the entire field of this branch of medicine. Carole’s mission is to share this information, along with personal experience and background, to help others breathe easier and feel healthier, too.

Certificate in Food, Nutrition, and Health

$96

with Ed2Go Instructor, MSAD#1 Adult & Community Education

Food and nutrition have a profound impact on our health and well-being, yet many of us are not aware of what foods to eat, which diets are healthy, and where our food originates. We eat toxic, irradiated, or genetically altered foods and we eat more than we need. How can we change our eating habits and become more conscious of what we eat, why we eat it, how it is prepared, and what consequences our food choices have on our health as well as the health of our planet? This certificate provides an overview of the role of food and nutrition choices on our bodies, our immune systems, our overall well-being, and the health of all sentient beings on an increasingly populated planet.

The outcome of this certificate is for the learner to describe a holistic overview of current food and nutrition issues and their impact on physical, social, emotional, spiritual, and planetary health.
