Do You Know How To Breathe?
I cannot tell you how many times a week, I work with people on their breathing patterns.

AND this is an exercise that the average human performs 20 - 25,000 repetitions of throughout the day. Are you ready for the bad news? In my experience, most people don't know how to breathe properly! And even fewer people truly understand how important breathing is to our health.
