What do gymnast Simone Biles, basketball star LeBron James, and golfer Phil Mickelson have in common? They all practice mindfulness! Come learn to focus and calm your mental and emotional states during play – and in your daily life – through accessing and working with perhaps the important source of life: our breath. Breathing properly is crucial for both healing and athletic performance of any type, and a healthy mental and emotional state can be just as important as physical therapy for those working through injuries and body deterioration. Join us to improve your breathing, and to learn how the breath affects your mental, emotional, and physical experience.

This program will be offered both in-person and via livestreaming. You are registering for the in-person module. Please click here to register for the livestreaming module.

In-person attendees are encouraged to wear a mask at all times, observe physical distancing guidelines, and to sign a waiver (which will be sent to you before the class begins).

This class will not be recorded.

About the instructor

Ann Friedman, Shereen Yusuff

Shereen’s breath journey started at the age of four, through tennis. She learned breath exercises to be able to hit harder, run faster, and lift more weight. When she got into Ultramarathons and Ironman races, she recognized how crucial breath was to her recovery. Climbing mountains first led her to the Wim Hof Method and, very quickly after, the Buteyko Method. Integrating both the methods has greatly enhanced her ability to be in the present moment, which has made her a happier and healthier person.
