BREATHING – THE POWER OF BREATHING
Introduction to various breathing techniques and systems, with emphasis on: OXYGEN ADVANTAGE® & WIM HOF METHOD®
Breathing to strong immunity, top sports achievements, better sleep, mental focus, happier and better life.
Breathing – the first line of defense against stress, viruses and bacteria.
Introduction to the Oxygen Advantage® program, one of the most popular breathing methods in the world.
The creator of the OA metode je Patrick McKeown, an Irishman with 20 years of experience working with recreational and top athletes.
Practical application of OA – a very powerful and effective breathing system, in everyday life and top sports.
Oxygen Advantage technique is currently one of the most popular breathing methods in the world. Intended for everyone who wants to improve their own health in a simple and natural way. As well as for top athletes, the Oxygen Advantage method consists of two main parts.
The first is exercise and the adoption of a functional breathing pattern, while the second is a simulation of altitude training.
2 main tests for initial testing and monitoring of progress:
1. Body Oxygen Level Test (BOLT)
2. Maximum Breathlessness Test (MBT).
Initial tests, 11 different exercises / techniques
Functional breathing patterns

CHRONIC EXCESS BREATHING
~ Knowing the amount of air we breathe could change everything you thought you knew about your body, health and productivity, whether you are a “potato on the couch”, a recreational athlete or a professional athlete.
~ Healthy breathing habits are just as important or more important than healthy training and eating habits
~ it is crucial to learn how to breathe properly; we believe that the body knows how much air it needs, but this is unfortunately not the case
~ Over the past centuries we have dramatically changed our environment and forgotten about our innate way of breathing
~ the process of breathing is deformed: sedentary lifestyle (siting is new smoking!), chronic stress, insufficient movement, unhealthy diet, overheated apartments
~ The biggest obstacle to your health and fitness is one rarely recognized problem – chronic excessive breathing
The unconscious habit of excessive breathing has reached epidemic proportions
~ The biggest obstacle to your health and fitness is one rarely recognized problem – chronic overbreathing – the scale of the epidemic
CLOSE YOUR MOUTH AND CHANGE YOUR LIFE!
Most people have the misconception that carbon dioxide is just waste, but it is not. CO2 plays a key role in releasing oxygen from red blood cells to be metabolized by the body, which is called the Bohr effect (discovered in 1904 by Danish physiologist Christian Bohr). It explains the effect of releasing oxygen to active muscles and organs.
• The essence – which many do not understand – the amount of CO2 in our blood cells determines how much oxygen we can use. So the way we breathe determines the level of CO2 in our blood. When we breathe properly, we have optimal levels of CO2 in the blood, breathing is quiet, controlled and rhythmic.
• With excessive, improper breathing (unconscious hyperventilation), we exhale too much carbon dioxide, breathing is difficult and intense, our body cries out for oxygen
• Our red blood cells are saturated with 95-99% oxygen, and the utilization of that oxygen is actually determined by the amount of carbon dioxide.
EFFICIENT BREATHING – LSD L – light, S – slow, D – deep
Breathing rhythm: Ideal number of inhalations / exhalations per minute: 6 x; diaphragmatic breathing
