Art of Breath Clinic
Mar 24 @ 8:30 am – 4:00 pm

The AoB Clinic is a 1 day practical learning experience that introduces the basics of breathing anatomy and physiology. You will learn how to utilize different breathing protocols to positively impact your performance, recovery, and overall health.

The fact is breathing can happen anywhere. We don’t need to go to a gym, go out to a trail, or get on a bike, or get in a pool. It happens anywhere and everywhere. It starts when we are born and leaves when we die. The AoB Clinic will give a broad overview of how we can use breathing to wake up, slow down, speed up, warm up, open up, and even perform at higher levels and recover faster.

This Art of Breath Clinic is for anyone who wants to learn more about breathing as it relates to human performance, recovery, and health.
