What if you are breathing all wrong?
Breath-Taking classes aren’t just about breathing, everyone knows how to breathe, and we know that if you stop breathing, you die. But, if you never learn how to breathe well, you go on to become sick and tired. Since breathing is something you do every moment you’re alive, learning to breathe well becomes one of the most essential factors in feeling your best and doing your best every day.
The most important thing to know about Breath-Taking Online classes is that they’re not about learning a single special technique. Courses are developed from the entire medical field of identifying and correcting Breathing Pattern Disorders.
It’s estimated that 85% of us currently have some type of Breathing Dysfunction that’s connected to feeling sick and tired. Or at the very least, sicker, and tired than we need to be.

Carole Freeman, B.S. RRT, Breathing Specialist
Carole’s background has been in 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.
Summer Gentle Yoga
with Maria Lovo
Our meditative, gentle yoga classes will move at a steady pace, slowly cycling through a series of stretches, breath practices, and poses. Though one can expect a few standing poses, as well as balance exercises, we'll spend most of the class on our mats. While the intensity may be lower, the focus and commitment are high. This class is appropriate for all levels and ages of practitioners. Please bring a yoga mat, and water, and wear loose-fitting clothing to allow for easy movement. Pay one fee and attend as many classes as you want.
