Virtual Spotlight: Paralympic Swimmer Jamal Hill
Updated: August 5th 2020
We are so proud to partner with Paralympic Swimmer Jamal Hill offering our community a specialized breathing course. If quarantine has taught us anything, it's been to re-evaluate our wellness and overall health. Our wellness practice has been a wonderful journey. Now we ask you to join us diving in deep with Jamal Hill as he shares his craft of breathing exercises to target how to deal with stress and anxiety starting with breathing. Breath work is the foundation of our mind and body connection. How do we continue pushing ourselves through conditioning, dancing, and cardio vascular activities if we don't train ourself how to breathe?
