    Performance Breathing for altitude and wellbeing, with Coach Rich Burrows

    Performance Breathing for altitude and wellbeing, with Coach Rich Burrows

    Join Richard Burrows from Performance Breathing Australia to hear about some of the simple and effective tools you can implement right now to master your mental and emotional state, increase your capacity to create and utilise energy and ultimately improve your overall health and well being.

    These tools aren't something you will master in a few days, like anything worth doing, it is something we all need to practise consciously on a daily basis to see results over time. Richard tells us hikers, that there's some great exercises we can do to prepare our bodies and minds better for the effects of altitude, without having to step inside an altitude gym. Don't miss this one!

    Check out Rich's Noosa workshops at @coachrichjburrows on Facebook
    And stay tuned for the launch of our Get Trek Ready Workshops, featuring Performance Breathing for Hiking, with Coach Rich.
