Kathleen is teaching this class as part of her certification as a Buteyko breath practitioner. It involves exercises that teach you to breathe efficiently. It’s said that over time this breathing technique will become a natural part of your daily life. This class series may help with anxiety, fitness performance, sleep, and attention.
