Course Description


The Art of Breathing is a course on utilizing your full breathing abilities in order to improve your day-to-day life.

Most of us don't employ our "breathing machine" fully – we will teach you how to do that. From breathing routines to yoga and meditation, through performance and emotional health breathing techniques, we will discover that there is no such thing as learning to breathe well, but rather, we will provide you with the tools that will allow you to relearn the Art of Breathing. Relearn?

Yes. We are all born masters in The Art of Breathing. For a variety of reasons, during the course of our lives, we start unlearning the good habits, and begin to increasingly soak up a number of bad habits, which are physical, mental and emotional. The Art of breathing will teach you how to regain control over your breathing, which in turn will give you ownership of your body, thoughts and feelings. This will not only affect your own personal life, but will trigger positive changes in those around you. This is a journey of discovery, one that will little by little bring who you are and who you want to be ever closer, with hopes that they will eventually – and forever – become the same person.
