Coaching and Breathwork for athletes 

Breathwork is getting more and more popular in the fields of training as well as mental and physical therapy. 

Benefit from elite athlete training 

Some world class freediving athletes go to depths of 100 meters and deeper on one breath. This is only achievable by a calm mind, a strong body and a perfect technique. Using a combination of mental and physical preparation, which includes a comprehensive breathwork workout, preparing the body for the pressure, the lack of oxygen and the mind to stay calm and focused.

These techniques are also applicable to other sports and athletes.

​Breathe right

Dysfunctional breathing is common in all kinds of athletes and significantly impacts health and performance. It can not only constrain efficiency, but also cause injuries, like back problems, chronic pain and muscle tension. Asthma and other respiratory problems have a high prevalence in athletes causing breathlessness or wheezing. This further impacts mental states and focus.

Improve performance

Studies have shown that runners who included breathwork in their training improved their times by 5-12 percent and that proper functional breathing can improve sports performance by 15 percent.

Changing states

The mind plays a vital role when facing daily challenges and stressful situations. Breathing enables us to remain calm and focused.
