Did you know you can achieve high altitude training in under 2 weeks without going to altitude?
WOW!!! You don’t have to go to the mountains to get the physiological benefits of training at altitude. There are definitely other benefits to being at altitude but if you are strapped for time and money to get ready for that high mountain adventure, this is a great resource.
Did you know your everyday breathing affects your breathing during exercise and sleep?
It’s true how you breath in your regular daily activities has a huge impact on your breathing patterns during exercise and sleep. So during your day you can affect change without setting aside time to “do something else.”
Did you know you can gain greater aerobic and anaerobic capacity by jogging, not sprinting?
This lessens the risk of injury and allows you to focus on your activity of choice without over-exerting yourself. And when you train the different aspects of your breathing your muscles will perform well, your joints will feel open and your feel light on your feet.
Through my guidance in teaching you a program from the Oxygen Advantage® you will effectively:
- Increase exercise intensity while expending less effort and breathing less heavily.
- Simulate high altitude training to improve aerobic and anaerobic capacity.
- Promote greater energy levels and endurance.
- Reduce risk of injury by combining your physiology with physical and mental capacities.
- Improve your sleep and recovery.
- Optimize your spine’s function.
- Develop a broader realm of resilience.
- Be better conditioned and stronger to go higher and further for the adventures or activities you want to do.
- Elevate your capacity to concentrate, and mentally focus in a relaxed state.
Pillar 1 = Functional Breathing
How you breathe during your day affects your breathing with exercise, recovery, sleep, and mental activities. Profound outcomes are achieved by addressing your everyday breathing patterns. With the Oxygen Advantage® method the 3 foundations of breathing – blood (biochemistry), how to breath (biomechanics), and rhythm (cadence) are considered in tailoring a program specifically for you. In addition, by tailoring a program to meet your lifestyle and goals, this aspect of your breathing is ideal for optimizing your capacity.
Pillar 2 = Stressors with Breath Holds
A positive stressor is an intermittent challenge that creates adaptations in the body-mind complex that harnesses healthy activities both physically and mentally. Positive stressors include recovery which enhances your resilience. Additionally, your performance capabilities are expanded for any physical activity. Tailored programs are developed to meet your specific needs and challenges; and you can rest assured your progress will be monitored and your program adjusted to insure the greatest success. You have a great amount of potential to discover and your breath is keystone to the possibilities waiting for you.
Here are what clients are saying:
I never imagined my teaching and speaking had such an impact on my breathing – speaking is similar to hyperventilation – and how this has affected my health. Thank you very much for helping me discover ways I can help myself especially with my sleep and how I teach to my students.
I had no idea a woman’s cycle was affecting my breathing. When you explained it to me, it made perfect sense and brought an ah-ha to why I have struggled. Thank you very much Shawn.
I’ve been practicing Yoga and breathing for so many years, and what you have shown me blew my socks off. I realize how much I have been over-breathing and the simple ways you guided me in functional breathing has transformed my practice and my life. Thank you.
