After a long career in aerospace engineering, I now work as a writer, functional breathing specialist, meditation teacher, and yoga instructor.
I teach clients how to master control of their health and wellbeing by strengthening their mind-body-spirit connection by way of the breath.
Breath is our life force. It’s what connects us to our sacred essence. It helps us navigate hardship and lights us up on the other side of it. Breath is the doorway to our soul, where we feel wholeness, joy, perfection. In this divine space, we receive answers for the most complex problems.
My aim is to inspire others to remember, to draw on, their spiritual essence—breath—as a path toward health, empowerment and happiness.
I am especially interested in showing athletes how correct breathing can enhance their performance, which can be a game changer. Literally. My primary focus is youth athletes because breathing habits can change the trajectory of their athletic career.
When you master your breath, your athletic abilities auto-magically improve because your body is operating more efficiently. You don’t “gas out” so quickly and you feel stronger, longer. In my observations, most athletes (especially youth) do not breathe correctly, which means they are missing out on that extra bit of juice. If you want an edge over your competition, master your breath. It’s your secret weapon.
