Breathwork

Do you struggle with anxiety?
 

Do the day to day stresses of daily life get a bit overwhelming?

Would you like to improve your athletic performance?

 

IT ALL STARTS WITH THE BREATH

Breathing is the first thing we do when we enter the world and the last thing we do when we exit, maybe we should start paying a bit more attention to it.

BREATHE BETTER

MOVE BETTER

FEEL BETTER

Start Here

After watching the video above, start with simply paying attention to your breath, and generally breathing through your nose a bit more often and the mouth less. Once comfortable with that move onto the CO2 tolerance assessment, follow the instructions near the end of the video then choose one or both of the breath protocols below (one for the morning and one for the evening), choose the number that matches your CO2 tolerance score and perform them twice a day for 30 days (for 5-10min each time). As your tolerance score improves, move onto the next protocol.

Pause's generally works better in the morning as the breath holds help ramp you up and the 'Flow' usually works better to calm you down.

 

If you consider yourself anxious or highly stressed I recommend you start with the 'Flow' protocols and only move onto the 'Pause' variations when your tolerance score is consistently 40 sec and above.
