breath works - foundATIONS
Even though you’ve been breathing since the doctor slapped you on your butt when you were born, it does not mean you are doing it right. Overreliance on technology is crippling our postures which leads to shallow mouth breathing that take us away from effective breaths though the nose and diaphragm. This leads to a variety of negative effects on your mental state and health.
The Breath Works Foundations course is designed to counteract these unhealthy trends by teaching the mechanics and physiology of how to breathe correctly and its effects on the human body. Also, learn various breath techniques that will assist you in developing mental toughness, will power, self-awareness and for practical uses in an active lifestyle.
