Dublin Masterclass Weekend

Reduced Breathing Technique & Chi Running Performance

Sat 2 and Sun 3 July – 9am to 5pm

University College Dublin

A unique opportunity to deepen your practice and understanding of running and walking.

Sat 2 July: The Oxygen Advantage Masterclass with Patrick McKeown

Following the success of the London masterclass, Chi Running UK is delighted to be presenting a second 1-day masterclass in Reduced Breathing Technique with Patrick McKeown author of The Oxygen Advantage in Dublin.

  • Improve your VO2 max and sports performance
  • Reduce your breathlessness during physical exercise
  • Improve delivery of oxygen to organs and working muscles
  • Increase your natural production of EPO
  • Prevent exercise induced asthma
  • Reduce inflammation and the risk of injury
  • Help maintain fitness during rest or injury

The health benefits of reduced breathing include better sleep, improved cardiovascular health, and increased energy and concentration. Increasing the amount of oxygen that can be delivered to your working muscles and heart during exercise will allow you to become healthier, faster, fitter and stronger.

The masterclass will give you an understanding of how oxygen is released throughout the body and how to improve everyday breathing habits so that body oxygenation becomes more efficient. You’ll learn specially designed breath hold exercises which provide the same benefits as high altitude training.

Presented in association with Chi Running UK you’ll also learn how this approach to breath is aligned to the key principles of Chi Running and walking. A switch to nasal breathing when running and walking will calm breathing volume towards normal levels and improve every facet of your health. Stress levels will decrease substantially and you’ll feel like an entirely different person.

The masterclass is open to anyone of any fitness level. For walkers you’ll lean how to maintain an effortless feeling of alignment and relaxation during movement and runners will get to carry this feeling through to a light run.

Patrick McKeown is one of the world’s leading trainers of the Buteyko breathing method. For the past 11 years he has trained over 5,000 people in reduced breathing exercises. From seriously ill asthmatics to couch potatoes, weekend warriors to Olympic athletes—he has taught a simple, fast way to transform their health, well-being, and performance. Patrick has lectured around the world and makes yearly trips teaching in the US, UK, and Australia.
