Brian MacKenzie is the founder of Power, Speed, Endurance and Rob Wilson a co-presenter on the new Art of Breath seminars. They talk with Commander Divine today about the importance of proper breathing and breath control for performance in both athletes and everyday life.

- Breath control is the basis of performance both as an athlete and everything else as well
- Nasal breathing engages the parasympathetic nervous system so that you can be relaxed and focused at the same time.
