There is one activity that will dramatically change your client’s posture, increase mobility and help them improve strength. It can be used to help them relax and improve their quality of sleep and it can be used to amp their energy and elevate their mood. That one activity is three-dimensional breathing.

This series has been pre-recorded.

Anatomy of Breathing

In this 3-module program, you will be introduced to the anatomy of breathing and how the respiratory muscles:

  • Function in posture, movement, and performance;
  • Enhance relaxation, recuperation, and sleep;
  • How these muscles can lead to common issues like tightness, pain, and anxiety if not used optimally.

The Anatomy of Breathing program was created for the health and fitness professionals just like you who have been looking for a practical and fun resource for learning the functional anatomy of the respiratory muscles. More importantly, you will be able to incorporate each practical lesson directly into your client’s training programs to improve posture, movement, and performance.

This 3-module webinar series provides a detailed anatomical review of the muscles and bony landmarks of the trunk, spine, and pelvis. Using creative visuals, the anatomy, biomechanics, and control of the breathing muscles are brought to life. What makes this program unique, is that you’ll be able to immediately apply the information you are learning.

After each module, you’ll be able to confidently guide your client through:

  • Assessments to determine their current breathing habits;
  • The most appropriate corrective exercises including myofascial release and neuromuscular activation strategies to develop optimal breathing habits;
  • Functional training to incorporate changes into the fundamental movement patterns required for occupation, recreation, and life.

This series includes:
