Breath-Taking at Night


with Carole Freeman

The #1 reason why so many people are sick and tired This class teaches you how to fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, stop snoring and wake up feeling rested. 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. 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.

Breath-Taking Basics


with Carole Freeman

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 breathe 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.

Breath-Taking for Childcare Workers and Parents


with Carole Freeman

We'll connect the dots between your child's Breathing Pattern and their Childhood Development affecting overall health for the rest of their life. It’s estimated that 85% of us have some degree of dysfunctional breathing. Much of this starts in childhood and has dramatic consequences on our health, our brain function, and our appearance over our lifetime. Since you breathe every moment of your life, how you breathe has surprising effects on your health every moment too. Everything from the shape of your child’s skull and facial features to the function of their lungs is dramatically impacted by their habitual breathing patterns. This is where you can make a dramatic difference in your child’s life.
