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


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


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 **
