The Oxygen Advantage breath coach certification will give you a deep understanding of breathing physiology. Physiology is the science of the mechanical, physical, and biochemical function of the body. It connects medicine, science, and health. And it gives us ways to measure our body’s response to stresses, physical activity, and disease.

You will study breathing physiology in terms of breathing muscles, functional airways, blood chemistry and gas exchange with the atmosphere. Once you understand these, it is easy to tailor your breath coaching to change your clients’ physiological response to breathing.

The breathing exercises used in the OA™ are designed to work with the body’s physiology and biochemistry. They are simple, safe, tried and tested. And they will restore functional breathing in your clients.

How Do You Get Warm Quickly After A Cold Water Immersion?
As a professional freediving instructor and breathwork coach, I find there’s plenty to be excited and interested about when it comes to cold water immersion in the sea, plunge pools, bathing in icy river streams and the rejuvenating feelings that are so effervescent after a cold water wild swim. But something that doesn’t get much talked about is, well, what do you do once you’re out of the cold water? How do you recover after a cold water immersion? And how do you warm up quickly after a cold plunge? Here’s the answer to how I get warm.
