Have you ever been called a mouth-breather?

When was the last time you took an exhale that was longer than your inhale?

Do you hold your breath everytime you lift heavy as a way to “stabilize”?

When you woke up this morning, did you think about breathing before you actually took a breath? As a living human chances are you did not; this function comes automatically and for good reason. 


In this episode, Dr. Lance Einerson is back to drop some breathwork knowledge bombs. We are talking about how your nervous system’s interpretation of your breath can lead to panic or relaxation, discussing the connection between poor breathing and chronic pain, plus Dr. Lance gives out his top 2 breathing tips to start addressing your chronic pain today!
