Breathwork for athletic performance
In this workshop, you'll discover techniques to enhance your breathing for better athletic performance. These hands-on methods aim to refine your breathing patterns, boosting oxygen intake and distribution throughout your body. We'll cover the essentials of breathing before and during training, preparing for peak performance in competitions, and accelerating recovery.
The program shows how targeted breathing exercises can enhance physical abilities and nurture a focused mindset. Over time, these principles will contribute to your overall well-being and stress reduction.
Optimise your workouts
In this course, our main focus will be on three key aspects:
Performance – learning how to enhance endurance, increase VO2 max, and better oxygen delivery to cells, providing an added training stimulus to the body.
Recovery – discovering techniques to speed up recovery after training, balancing the body's chemistry, and maintaining fitness during rest or injury.
Mindset – achieving calmness and improved concentration, resetting the nervous system, and utilizing breathwork in sports psychology.
The course made up of live online meetings. We will have 4 workshop days in total but you can practice during the days in between on your own.
Each of the training days you will partly consist of a lecture where we can go through all the theory and there will also be time for a guided practice. The live meetings are also a great opportunity to ask questions and get feedback right away.

In recent times, there's been a surge in different ways people use breathing techniques to enhance athletic performance. I believe this area is still relatively new and growing. A lot of the newer methods have their roots in ancient practices.
With this program, I aimed to bring together both modern training approaches and those ancient methods. Nowadays, more and more high-level athletes are including breathwork training alongside their workouts. They do it to improve performance, recover, and focus their minds.
Breathwork has so many applications across different areas, and it's really important to have a good understanding of it.

For those who are training professionally in a specific sport, this workshop will offer creative approaches to incorporate breathwork training drills into your practice, optimizing performance. Given the diverse range of sports covered, this course will not go into the specifics of aligning breathwork with individual disciplines.
If you create training programs for others, this course will give you plenty of ideas to incorporate into your workouts.
