Breath-Taking 101

with Carole Freeman

This class is self-paced, online and is offered by Carole Freeman.

Welcome to The Breath-Taking 101

The biggest question I’m asked is "Why would I take a breathing taking class if I already know how to breathe?" But what if you are breathing all wrong?

Breath-Taking classes aren’t just about breathing, everyone knows how to breathe and we know that if you stop breathing, you die. But, if you never learn how to breathe well, you go on to become sick and tired. Since breathing is something you do every moment you’re alive, learning to breath well becomes one of the most essential factors in feeling your best and doing your best every day.

The most important thing to know about Breath-Taking Online classes is that they’re not about learning a single special technique. Courses are developed from the entire Medical field of identifying and correcting Breathing Pattern Disorders.

It’s estimated that 85% of us currently have some type of Breathing Dysfunction that’s connected to feeling sick and tired. Or at the very least, more sick and tired then we need to be.

 In this class, I'll go over how to;

Requirements

You will get more out of future classes with a firm base and skill of these early steps.

Breath-Taking at Night

$37

with Carole Freeman

This is a self-paced, online class offered by Carole Freeman. 

Welcome to Breath-Taking at Night

You’d be shocked at how many health disorders are related to, if not caused by, faulty breathing during sleep. While many people feel there’s nothing they can do about snoring or waking frequently at night, they’d be just a surprised to know there’s more you can do about it than you think.

What I'm asking you to do today, is to at least consider the possibility that a poor nights' sleep may be a significant aggravating factor, that could lead to, significant disruption in one's mental health and certain physical health conditions. You and I know that you can’t possibly have your highest brain power, do your best performance and function at your highest level when you are chronically fatigued and drained from lack of deep restful sleep.

Take the Quiz below to see if you may have a Sleep/Breathing Dysfunction:

______Do you have trouble falling asleep, or have trouble getting back to sleep once you wake up in the middle of the night

______Have you been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea

______Do you drink alcohol at night before bed

______Do you have to get up multiple times a night to urinate

______Do you have a dry mouth in the morning

______Do you sleep with your mouth open

______Are you fatigued in the morning

______Do you rarely feel truly well rested

______Do you wake up frequently in the middle of the night

______Do you consider yourself a ‘light sleeper’

______Do you snore

______Do you have a stuffy nose

______Do you eat within 2 hours of going to bed

______Do you wake up sweaty or have hot flashes

If you answered YES to Any of the above symptoms, you likely have a Breathing Dysfunction at Night.
