Course   Descriptions 

Session  One :  Harnessing the  Power  of Breathing  with Jaime Sochasky - Livingston

Have you been struggling with how to incorporate breath work into your practice? Are you overwhelmed by the plethora of information out there and not sure where to  begin? 

Unsure if breath work for performance applies to your more general client population? Breathing and human performance training is not reserved just for athletes. It is  applicable to all humans who are trying to improve their potential no matter where they  are starting from. Breath work is a powerful tool that can be used to deliver marked  improvements in stamina, resiliency and recovery potential in every human being. In addition, and contrary to popular belief, breath work for you and your clients does  not have to be complicated. It can actually be quite simple. 

Poor breathing is said to be the cause of many of the chronic health issues our culture is  overwhelmed with every year. Conditions such as asthma, chronic fatigue and pain, high  blood pressure, and sleep apnea, to name a few. All of these can have devastating effects  on rehabilitation and performance. Furthermore, scientists who study breathing say  that a significant percentage of people in our culture breathe poorly. Take it from me, who has been using this powerful tool for over 15 years of practical  application and experience in the performance and recreational realm. This is a  fundamental pillar of building a resilient human being and engaged clientele. Want to take your breath work game to the next level? Come to this Harness the Power of Breathing in this session. 

What to expect: 

Learn to recognize and address breathing issues in your clients simply and  effectively. 

Develop more complete interventions with a streamlined understanding and  implementation of the science of internal and external respiration. 

Address all aspects of breath work through the biomechanical, biochemical and  psychosocial channels. 

Use breath work to not only enhance your toolbox, but work less hard to help  your clients achieve powerful results. 

Open your client’s mind, body and performance potential, as well as your own, by  using breath work in your practice. 

Reduce the fear and discomfort of using breath work for yourself, your clients, and in your work, with the understanding of the breath work options available.
