And the amount of oxygen available to every cell in your body and brain is dependent on the quality of your breathing pattern and function. This class will train you, and your entire respiratory system, to be more efficient at delivering blood, oxygen, glucose, and nutrients to all those cells. Whether you’re an athlete or not, the secret to greater strength and endurance starts, and ends, with the strength of your respiratory system. Limit 20.
