Rebuilding Energy and Endurance at Any Age

$47

with Carole Freeman, Gray-New Gloucester Adult Education

Calendar Jan 3, 2023

Learn why the secret to greater Energy and Endurance starts, and ends, with the strength of your respiratory system.

Description

Here’s why this Breath-Taking course works.

Because every cell in your body is dependent on oxygen to create energy. And the amount of oxygen available to every cell in your body and brain is dependent on the breath. To be even more specific, dependent on the quality of your breathing pattern and function. This class will train you, and your entire respiratory system, to be more efficient at delivering blood, oxygen, glucose, and nutrients to all those cells. Whether you’re an athlete or not, the secret to greater strength and endurance starts and ends with the strength of your respiratory system. No matter how long you train, or how hard you work out, when your breathing gives out - your body follows.

The class is presented as if the student will give themselves at least 3-6 weeks to implement these new exercises and techniques.

This course is full of class exercises that will help you understand and feel the difference in your health right away.

What you'll learn:

  • Improve respiratory muscle strength
  • Reduce Fatigue
  • Improve core strength
  • Increase muscle oxygenation
  • Improve spinal stability
  • Reduce back pain
  • Get more strength out of your strength-training
  • Reduce Shortness of Breath
  • Increase awareness of your optimal breathing pattern
  • Improve balance

Requirements

It is encouraged, but not mandatory, for the student to attend the Breath-Taking Basics course prior to attending Regaining Energy and Endurance.

** After payment for this class is received, you will be provided a link, access code and instructions the next business day **

Rebuilding Energy and Endurance at Any Age

with Carole Freeman, Bonny Eagle Adult Education

Calendar Jan 3, 2023

Every cell in your body is dependent on oxygen to create energy. And the amount of oxygen available to every cell in your body and brain is dependent on the quality of your breathing pattern and function. This class will train you, and your entire respiratory system, to be more efficient at delivering blood, oxygen, glucose, and nutrients to all those cells. Whether you’re an athlete or not, the secret to greater strength and endurance starts, and ends, with the strength of your respiratory system.

About Carole: 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.”

Surviving Stress

$37

with Carole Freeman, Gray-New Gloucester Adult Education

Calendar Jan 3, 2023

Welcome to Surviving Stress

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”. You may never get out of the feelings of general anxiety and stress without revising your breathing. If you are being treated with Talk therapy, meditation, relaxation, movement therapy, etc. your breathing pattern, which is caused emotional distress, may not be allowing you to get the full benefits these therapies offer.

In this class, you will learn the following:

  • How to increase awareness of your “normal” breathing pattern and understand why and how it may have been working against you.
  • How to form a new optimal breathing pattern
  • How to reduce anxious signaling to your Brain, breaking dysfunctional patterns
  • How to manage break-through anxiety or panic attacks
  • How to increase oxygen to the brain, creating clearer thinking
  • How to strengthen the Rest & Recover portion of the Autonomic Nervous System, increasing feelings of calm and control
  • How to take your emotional system from depletion to renewal

Requirements

It is not required, but highly recommended that The Breath-Taking Basics course be completed before beginning this course for you to get maximum benefit from the techniques presented here.
