Yoga coaching with champion freediver, yoga teacher and breath specialist Rebecca Coales. Restore your natural breath to move well, sleep better and think clearly. Maximise your recovery from injury and overtraining and avoid it happening again.
My structured courses help you resolve breathing and mobility problems that are holding you back from fully enjoying sport, and from winning. Yoga is about mind, breath and body - in that order of priority. I focus on functional training, so there are no complex putting-your-foot-behind-your-head poses here!
The Breathing School contains 3 levels of courses to help you if you get out of breath and dizzy during or after exercise. Once your functional breathing is restored, you can harness the full potential of your breath to boost performance, perform confidently and recover like a pro.
The Mobility Hub helps you if you are trying to get fit after injury, or wanting to avoid future injury by moving more effectively. This is a monthly membership so you can dip in as & when you need.
The Breathing School
Level 1 - the Fast Track to Better Breathing helps you resolve breathing problems that are affecting your enjoyment of sport. You may have been diagnosed with exercise-induced asthma, have regular blocked nose or experience dizziness during exercise. These are often caused by over-breathing and that's the main focus of the course.
After taking this course, people who dread getting out of breath will be confident they can lace up their trainers and keep fit. Some may even reduce their need for medication.
We also look at the benefits of slow breathing to minimise anxiety and manage blood pressure.
Level 2 - With effective breathing you can then harness the powers of your breath to boost performance. The Advanced Performance Breathing course introduces breathing muscle strength exercises, and the use of breath-holding to enhance your blood carrying capacity. This simulates training at 3,000m+
We also focus on pre-race preparation to get you in peak condition to perform at your best.
Breathing School exercises are from the Oxygen Advantage programme, designed by Patrick McKeown, blended with my experience from yoga, running and freediving.
Level 3 - the Elite Performance Breathing course takes simulated high altitude training further, and introduces repeat hypoxic sprinting as a valuable coaching tool for sports with intermittent activity such as football, rugby etc. Students are encouraged to continue breathing muscle strengthening exercises, with or without a sports mask.
We explore where over-breathing could benefit you in training and mental preparation for competition. We focus on maximising recovery through breath and relaxation. The most successful athletes are those who know how to rest deeply, including during sleep.
Have you struggled to fully recover from injury? Find that strengthening exercises aren't working for you? And you fear the twinge that signals another injury is on its way.
The Hub is a structured collection of functional mobility assessment tools, and training exercises, to help you improve your joint & muscle flexibility and strength.
It's available as a monthly membership, with new exercises being added regularly. You can take what you need, and unsubscribe when you like.
