They need to breathe more deeply.
So they focus on belly breathing.
Or deeply inhaling.
But then they notice that not much changes.
And they lose interest.
Like so many things, this issue is often not the actual issue.
If you would like to help your clients improve their breathing, I have an entirely different way to show you.
What if I told you that you could have a better, fuller breath, that actually felt like it was doing something for you?
And you could teach your clients how to have the same?
Like Caroline, who has asthma. She was able to significantly improve her flow meter readings.
Or Darren, who has COPD. He learned to sleep better when he learned to move better.
Or Michael, a CEO, who also manages a long standing lung condition. When he understood the relationship between his energy levels and how how his body functioned, he was able to direct his energy better, was more productive, and had less lung "flare ups".
Or the pilot research project on Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, that I created for the University of Calgary. After 4 weeks of twice weekly classes, participants reported being able to complete more of their daily tasks without needing as much external oxygen.
When you inhale air into your body, your rib cage is supposed to expand, and your diaphragm and pelvic floor are meant to move downward.
On exhale the opposite is meant to happen.
However, if the muscles or connective tissue around your ribs, neck, abdomen or pelvis are limited, so will the mechanics of your breathing.
You won't breathe as well as you could.
Which can limit so much from your feelings of vitality, your ability to sleep, digest food, and feel calm or resilient.
On the flip side, shift how your muscles and connective tissue respond, and you will significantly change how you breathe and how you feel.
There are 3 key things to learn:
Susi Hately, B.Sc. Kinesiology has helped people improve the relationship between their body and breath since 1995 and has been training yoga teachers and health professionals how to do the same since 2001.
Now she wants to help you grow your skill and ability to help others harness the simple power of their breath.
I've been practicing all the principles + after doing a 60-90 minute practices all week + moving w/ease + breath, I feel like I’ve just been moving + breathing, I don’t feel like I’ve “practiced.” Prior to this course usually something is hurting, strained, overused, but I’ve interpreted it as “I’ve worked out.” It’s just so strange to go thru my day + night “pain free” …..that I feel like I haven’t “done” anything….so my brain is catching up with the novelty that I can do a strong practice + not feel pain. AND I am making progress in areas where I was weak /tight/both or lacked mobility. Hope you understand what I’m saying, it’s just plain weird to not have twinges, tension during or after “practice”.
This 3 month training will always be available for you, so you can come back and review the teachings whenever you want. You will receive six months of access to Susi's Resource Library for FREE.
I was one of those teachers who thought pain was normal. After learning from Susi, I felt different - almost weird - because I had no pain.
I have a BSC. Kinesiology and have been helping people reduce and eradicate pain for 25 years. I have also been a bridge between the medical world and yoga. Two of my programs have been studied at the University of Calgary and both showed benefit for supporting people and their wellbeing. I am also the author of Therapeutic Yoga For Shoulders and Hips
I have been training teachers and health professionals in yoga therapy since 2001 and am the lead teacher in the highly successful C-IAYT Accredited Functional Synergy Yoga Therapy Program.
As a young student of yoga, I began to combine the ancient practices of yoga with my BSc. Kinesiology at a Vancouver pain clinic. When I continued to encounter individuals, including yoga instructors, who accepted that their pain was “normal”, I began to explore how yoga was being taught and practiced. By designing therapy programs that utilized sound anatomical principles of kinesiology with the time-honoured practices of gentle yoga, I have enabled people to find pain relief, feel good, and rediscover vitality in their lives.
Susi is an exceptional coach. If you want to work with one of the best, if you want to work with someone who really wants you to succeed, if you want to work with someone who truly walks the walk and talks the talk, work with Susi. She really knows what she is doing
