Using the Stamina 1 breath

Science

Stamina breaths are practiced by free-divers to build up their tolerance to carbon dioxide and lower levels of oxygen. When we can tolerate higher levels of carbon dioxide we become more resilient to stress whether physical, mental or emotional. Higher tolerance to CO2 contributes to more efficient utilization of oxygen and metabolism.
