Learn Breathing Behavioral Science...
Without Attending University!

Watch this video for a sneak peak into the course!


The first of it's kind course that teaches both the psychology and physiology of breathing. Learn how destructive breathing habits suppress health and impact everyday performance.

"This course was incredibly insightful. As someone who's been guiding breathing in a yoga and coaching context for many years, this information flipped my knowledge of breathing on it's head in the best way. I feel more equipped to understand what's going on with my clients and students and how to guide them in supportive and intuitive ways, rather than the prescriptive ways I had been used to offering."

 The Professional School of Behavioral Health Sciences and the Online Breathing Academy are coming together in a collaboration in breathing and behavioral science. 

This is a great course for professionals, coaches, practitioners and the general public that are interested in the behavioral perspective of breathing and its effects on health and performance.

In this course, you'll be guided through a basic understanding of breathing science and its psycho-physiological effects. Be introduced to how important it is to develop an awareness of breathing habits and how they are affecting your health and performance.

By the end of the course you will have some skills to repattern breathing habits and optimize respiration (for performance) and achieving optimal breathing for self-regulation (managing emotions and mindset).

From Dr. Peter Litchfield

Respiration is reflexive. If and when we allow it, it takes care of itself.  Unfortunately though, given the nature of our hectic everyday lives, many of us get in its way, often resulting in unpleasant symptoms and deficits.  To make things worse, these outcomes are rarely identified as breathing dysfunctions, and instead often misdiagnosed and misinterpreted as attributed by unrelated causes. 

How we breathe changes our internal environment from second to second, breath to breath. Specifically, the pH of extracellular body fluids such as blood plasma.  Breathing regulates acid-base balance which plays a critical role in maintaining and achieving good health and optimal performance.

For example, if someone's blood pH is too high as a result of over breathing (i.e., losing too much carbon dioxide), it will compromise blood flow to the brain, heart, and other tissues, thus reducing oxygen and glucose availability to these tissues.  The resulting mental changes include effects on memory, cognition, emotion, attention, and personality.

In this course, we will guide you through a basic understanding of breathing science, its physiology and psychology, and introduce you to developing an awareness of your breathing habits, how they are affecting you (and thus your clients), and how you can make changes to them for optimizing respiration and achieving optimal breathing self-regulation.
