Rebuilding Energy & Endurance at any age


with Carole Freeman

Calendar Current session started Jan 1, 2023

We are so excited to offer this wonderful series of courses with Carole Freeman of York.  Each class is a "stand-alone & self-paced" session that you can register for and then take at your own convenience!  Monday morning, Sunday afternoon, Friday night?  It's up to you!  Each class has a specific focus with information & exercises unique to its topic.

Rebuilding Energy & Endurance at any age

Yes, it’s true, you can, literally, breathe new life into your body!

Every cell in your body is dependent on oxygen to create energy. And the amount of oxygen available to every cell in your body and brain is dependent on the breath. To be even more specific, 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. No matter how long you train, or how hard you work out, when your breathing gives out - your body follows.

The class is presented as if the student will give themselves at least 3-6 weeks to implement the exercises & techniques.


Carole Freeman, B.S. RRT, Breathing Specialist

Carole’s background has been equal portions of respiratory therapy, exercise physiology, and massage therapy.  Her career as a respiratory therapist began at Loma Linda University Medical Center where she discovered that most adult patients were in the hospital because of poor lifestyle choices. That inspired her to attend graduate school at LLUMC, majoring in Health Sciences. She now focuses her work in a relatively new field of pulmonary medicine - recognizing and treating breathing disorders.  She has personally benefitted from improved breathing patterns, “I have found that each day I was mindful of my breathing pattern, I gained more energy, and my breathing became easier. It felt like I was turning the clock back as I continued to gain strength and endurance.”

Breath-Taking Online is a school that encompasses the entire field of this branch of medicine. Carole’s mission is to share this information, along with personal experience and background, to help others breathe easier and feel healthier, too.
