The Dojo, Woodside Rd presents..

Steve Maxwell, is an American fitness coach and physical educator. He is held in high regard and is an expert in his field. 

Maxwell was named one of the top 100 trainers in the United States by Men’s Journal and travels the world teaching. Now he is coming to Ballymena to hold a seminar which will be focusing on one element – Breathing.

Breathing: the most important, least-understood factor — not only in training, but in life.

Despite many years as both athlete and trainer, it took me a long time to realise how breath work relates not only to performance, but health and well-being. — Steve Maxwell

A lifetime habit of debilitated breathing leads to excess stress, immobility, degenerative disease, and premature ageing — but there is much you can do to improve your situation.


  • The three most common breathing patterns and which is your norm
  • A test of breathing proficiency and how you score
  • How breathing directly relates to mobility
  • How you can use breath work to diminish muscular tension and pain
  • Why sitting at a desk decreases breath efficiency and results in stress
  • How to rapidly pay off oxygen debt and increase work capacity
  • How to stay calm even in an emergency


  • How you can use your daily walks to improve breathing function
  • How awareness of the breath can elicit a calm mind even in an emergency
  • 4 types of breathing patterns to apply to dynamic exercise for better health
  • A 4000 year old moving meditation method that improves health and equanimity.


Anyone interested in health, well-being, longevity, heightened awareness, and self-reliance.


You will learn some great breathing regimens, how to immediately reduce pain feedback with breath drills, how to recover faster from somatic and mental exhaustion.

There will be general physical movement, plus specific exercise techniques. This is not merely concepts, but hands-on, body-mind connection practice.


The event is set to be held on Saturday 13th May 2017 starting at 12:00 and running until 16:00. If you would like to find out more about this event or buy tickets please click here. The Dojo is based on Woodside Road, Ballymena and their website can be found here.
