Alana Singleton

"As a former emergency services worker and founder of an organisation dedicated to supporting the health and wellbeing of those in the field, I can attest to the incredible value of Universal Apnea's breathwork and apnea training programmes.

Through my own struggles with PTSD and my work with others in the field, I've seen firsthand the power of these techniques to reduce stress and anxiety, improve mental clarity, and enhance overall health and wellbeing.

By incorporating this evidence-based approach to training into our organisation's offerings, we've been able to provide our members with the tools they need to better manage their symptoms and take control of their mental health.

I highly recommend these programmes to anyone in the emergency services field who is looking for a proactive approach to supporting their health and wellbeing."
Rebecca Woods
REGISTERED OSTEOPATH
FORMER PRO SURFER 
WSL WORLD TOUR 
"Learning the correct techniques for surfing breathwork and breath holds is essential for safety, survival, and performance in the water. I wish I had access to these techniques when I was on the World Surf Tour. Now, I use them for everyday life, for my role as an osteopath, and of course, for surfing!

Universal Apnea employs scientific and evidence-based approachs to breathwork and apnea training which made me feel more confident and capable in and out of the water.

I highly recommend these programs to anyone looking to improve their physical and mental wellbeing. Every single surfer should not only know how to swim, but have basic surf survival skills and breath management. It's not just about holding your breath during wipeouts.

There is so much more to performance, survival and confidence that you will achieve with this type of training. "
Ben Bailey
ULTRA MARATHON RUNNER
CORPORATE MANAGER 
"Learning proper breathwork and breath hold techniques has been a game changer for me as an ultramarathon runner.

With Universal Apnea's scientifically-based approach to training, I've been able to improve my lung capacity, increase my mental focus, and reduce my overall stress levels.

These techniques have not only helped me push through the toughest parts of my races, but have also become an integral part of my daily life.

 
 I highly recommend these courses to anyone seeking to improve their breathing and gain a greater understanding of the mind-body connection.

The techniques learned have the potential to positively impact various aspects of life, including corporate settings, by fostering a sense of calm, focus, and resilience."
