with Carole Freeman


If you are planning a mountain vacation in 4-6 weeks, take this class now! High Altitude Vacationing is for people who are planning to vacation in a mountainous region. The higher altitude reduces the amount of oxygen reaching the body’s tissues, including the brain. You may have heard of people who go to Denver or other high altitude locations, to train for elite sports. But we won’t need an elaborate training center. You’ll progress through 10 exercises over 4 to 6 weeks that will help your body begin to adapt to the higher altitude while still at home at sea level. Changes in your body will include an increase in red blood cells, giving your blood more oxygen carrying capacity prior to your vacation. You will learn a more functional breathing pattern that gives greater tissue oxygenation and less shortness of breath. Using this new, more optimal breathing pattern will allow you to maintain a higher oxygen level and ease of breathing while on vacation. Preregistration is required to receive online link.

Online at your convenience.
