Breath-Taking 101

with Carole Freeman

$37 More Info

Welcome to The Breath-Taking 101

The biggest question I’m asked is "Why would I take a breathing taking class if I already know how to breathe?" But 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 breath 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 then we need to be.

 In this class, I'll go over how to;

  • Breathe easier, reduce feelings of shortness of breath
  • Increase the amount of oxygen to your muscles during exercise
  • Reduce muscle fatigue, gain stamina, & breath easier during activities
  • Quickly gain control of your breath during anxious, stressful situations
  • Get a deeper, more restful nights sleep
  • Eliminate a chronically stuffy nose
  • Feel greater brain power by learning to increase blood flow, oxygen and nutrients to the brain
  • Relieve muscle tension aquired by daily stresses



This class is the starting point and prerequisit to other Breath-Taking courses. It covers the basic understanding of breathing physiology and the foundation of techniques that are core of all other classes. The techiques in Breath-Taking Basics are designed to be practiced over 2-4 weeks before advancing to other programs. You will get more out of future classes with a firm base and skill of these early steps.
