Presentation Skills

The Art of Breathing (PS009)

Although we take around 20,000 breaths a day, breathing is something we just tend to do. We don’t give it much thought until we notice it speeding up. That’s a handy little shortcut the brain does for us. We wouldn’t get much else done if we had to think about every breath, right? Breathing well improves our physical and mental health, and it’s key to good public speaking.

Imagine you’re about to give a presentation. If you’re breathing well, you’ll release more endorphins into your body, your muscles will relax, and your heart rate will lower. You’ll also become more focused and less stressed. Sound good? This course will explain how to harness your breath to ensure your voice is heard.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

• Recognize how “good” breathing benefits our bodies and minds
• Apply simple breathing techniques and exercises
• Identify how breathing can improve performance

Why take this course?

This course will help you focus your concentration, improve your confidence, and relax in front of an audience, all through the power of breathing. Knowing how, and remembering when to breathe really can contribute toward a successful presentation. And you don’t have to be in the spotlight to take advantage of these techniques, they can be used in any situation, by anyone.
