15-hour breath as medicine training for fitness professionals

Program Description

 

Ed Harrold’s Breath AS Medicine breath coach training focuses on nasal dominance in respiratory muscle training by applying the principles and philosophy of yoga breathing (or pranayama) as inspiratory and expiratory breath regulation training.  

 

In this 15-Hour Breath Training, we’ll learn the science of controlling the breath for various physiologic and psychological outcomes overlooked in current fitness & athletic training.   

Give your clients a cardiovascular, flexibility, strength & meditation-in-motion experience all in one training session. By incorporating nasal breathing techniques and strategies, we reduce over-breathing, increase nitric oxide, breathe to improve heart rate variability and support the body's natural gifts rather than robbing it of vital energy.  With nasal breathing, we improve biomechanics, biochemistry, physiology AND psychological states of being.  

Learn the art, science & application of breath training to improve health, fitness and exercise performance.  Appropriate for personal trainers, fitness professionals, coaches, athletes, physical therapists and "gym rats".
