The way we breathe is the way we feel and how we perform.
The way we breathe is the way we live!
One of the biggest detriments to our physical and mental health that prevents us from reaching our full performance potential and keeps us feeling stressed and depressed is inefficient dysfunctional breathing. Let’s change that.

Take a few minutes to watch the video below demonstraing Breath Control exercises and techniques that restore healthy functional breathing patterns.
Breathing is our #1 source of energy. I’d argue more important than food or water, yet the breath is often the over looked aspect of training or everyday life. Attention to nutrition and hydration is obviously critical to maintaining optimal health but… emphasis on your breath should be the paramount priority.
We breathe 20,000-30,000 times each day and most of us, even high performance athletes only utilize 60%-70% of each breath. Let’s think about this… every day we waste nearly half of the body’s main energy supply by inefficient, dysfunctional breathing patterns.
This effects everyone from high performance athletes, health care professionals, corporate executives, those suffering with physical and mental injury or illness, first responders, military, special forces, veterans and everyday men, woman and children.
The best gift we can give to our performance and our physical and mental health is efficient, optimal Breath Control.
Breath Control Training is based upon four main pillars:
- Biochemistry and composition of the blood
- Biomechanics of ventilation and functional breathing patterns
- Somatics breathwork and psychophysiology
- Psychology and motivational techniques
Breath Control Training is comprised of proven principles, exercises and breath coaching techniques to form one unique comprehensive training program.
The Oxygen Advantage and The Breatheology Method are two fundamental practices that are intertwined throughout our breath coaching programs.
Through breathwork, a link can be created between body and mind that enables a person to control stress, increase energy, increase physical and mental performance, alleviate pain, improve health and enhance happiness.
