Many of our mental and physical health and performance issues at work are affected by incorrect breathing techniques. These faulty breathing techniques can be caused by “physical issues” postural issues (poor workstations) and or high levels of workplace/personal stress and anxiety.
Individuals can develop physically limiting coping strategies such as hunched or raised shoulders. Postural/spinal misalignment and poor immune health due to dysfunctional breathing. Therefore, learning to breathe correctly can play a huge role in helping individuals manage and prevent both short term, or acute stress, and long term or chronic stress and manage anxiety.
In this course Tim Altman, naturopath and world champion paddler and coach teaches the science and art of breathing. How incorrect breathing impacts our health, vitality, mental clarity and performance, and we offer simple, easy to learn practical exercises to get the most of our breathing (and therefore our body and mind), plus some tips for creating a long term practice and benefit from this training.
