REBUILDING ENERGY AND ENDURANCE AT ANY AGE - ONLINE

$37

with Carole Freeman

Breathe new life into your body. Literally! 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. And not only your breath but the quality of your breathing pattern and function. Learn how you and your respiratory system can be more efficient at delivering blood, oxygen, glucose, and nutrients to all of those cells that keep you moving. 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. This pre-recorded, on-demand 3-6 week class allows you to view course content where/when it is most convenient. In addition, you will have access to downloadable resources, exercises, and activities. Preregistration is required to receive online link. Online at your convenience.

About Carole: Carole Freeman is a Respiratory Therapist and Breathing Specialist and holds a graduate degree in Health Sciences from Loma Linda University Medical Center. She focuses on the relatively new field of pulmonary medicine in recognizing and treating breathing disorders.
