Most people give little thought to how they breathe—but if they want to have more energy, be more alert, and improve their exercise and sport performance, they should, says renowned author, dancer, and movement educator Eric Franklin.

“Breathing is essential to our survival, it is necessary for energy production, and it is something we do about 20,000 times a day,” says Franklin, who has taught at various universities and ballets and coached world champions and Cirque du Soleil artists in his Franklin Method. “We stand to benefit if we improve our breathing.”

In Breathing for Peak Performance, you will learn how to improve your own breathing and the breathing of those you coach and work with. This concise, heavily illustrated text will help you do the following:

• Learn to improve your breathing function to benefit your health and improve your sport performance and daily living

• Understand the anatomy of breathing—all the muscles and joints involved and how they work together

• Practice 35 breathing exercises to improve functional breathing technique and performance in dance, yoga, and Pilates

• Study and train the vital muscle of breathing—the diaphragm—grasping how it interacts with the abdominal muscles and other muscles associated with breathing

• Comprehend the function and movement of the rib cage as it pertains to breathing

• Integrate all the elements involved in breathing, including the lungs and inner organs, for optimal breathing function

“The ideas and exercises in this book are tried and tested over 30 years of teaching, and they have been used by dancers, yoga practitioners, Pilates instructors, actors, vocal coaches, singing coaches, physiotherapists, swimmers, runners, and many others,” says Franklin. “When you perform the exercises, you will feel more energetic, focused, and relaxed. You will also gain an understanding of how to integrate imagery into your breathing practice.”

Franklin presents the exercises—many accompanied by full-color illustrations—through his famed Franklin Method, which combines movement, imagery, and touch. His method helps practitioners relearn, in this case, correct breathing procedure to maximize breathing function.

“To improve your breathing or to coach someone who needs to improve, first you need that solid understanding of anatomy,” Franklin says. “And you need to understand the habits that can hinder efficient breathing—tension, poor posture, and negative thinking, among others.”

Franklin presents a recommended daily practice at the end of the book, which is ideal for individuals, professionals, coaches, practitioners, and students of dance, yoga, and Pilates. His detailed description of the anatomy, his presentation of the exercises, and his ability to integrate this information and make it very practical through his Franklin Method make this text an important reference for those who are looking to reach their peak performance in sport and in life.

Eric Franklin is director and founder of the Institute for Franklin Method in Wetzikon, Switzerland. He has more than 35 years of experience as a dancer and choreographer, and he has shared imagery techniques in his teaching since 1986.

Franklin has taught extensively throughout the United States and Europe at the Juilliard School in New York, Royal Ballet School in London, Danish Ballet in Copenhagen, Dance Academy of Rome, and Institute for Psychomotor Therapy in Zurich. He was also a guest lecturer at the University of Vienna. He has provided training to Olympic and world-champion athletes and professional dance troupes such as Cirque du Soleil and the Forum de Dance in Monte Carlo. Franklin earned a BFA degree from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts and a BS degree from the University of Zurich. He has been on the faculty of the American Dance Festival since 1991.

Franklin is coauthor of the best-selling book Breakdance, which received a New York City Public Library Prize in 1984, and author of 100 Ideen für Beweglichkeit and Dance Imagery for Technique and Performance (both books about imagery in dance and movement). He is a member of the International Association for Dance Medicine and Science.

Each new print copy includes Navigate 2 Advantage Access that unlocks a comprehensive and interactive eBook, student practice activities and assessments, a full suite of instructor resources, and learning analytics reporting tools.

Statistics for Nursing: A Practical Approach, Third Edition is designed in accordance with the Conversation Theory of Gordon Pask and presents the complicated topic of statistics in an understandable manner for entry level nurses. The underlying principle of this design is to give students the opportunity to practice statistics while they learn statistics. The text accomplishes this through the inclusion of relevant clinical examples followed by end of chapter application exercises.

The Third Edition has been updated with practice activities which enable students to apply the content they have learned. In addition, the authors have included new research articles to develop and reinforce literature critiquing skills. These new features provide more opportunities for students to apply the concepts learned while the explanations are beneficial to clinical experts interested in further developing evidence-based skills.

This text meets the needs of both undergraduate nursing research students who need to learn how to critically analyze literature as well as graduate DNP students who must also be familiar with statistics for nursing in accordance with the rigor of the DNP program.

New to the Third Edition:
• Additional review questions
• New and updated graphs and figures
• Updated lesson content for computer application exercises

Achondroplasia and Other FGFR3-related Short Limbed Dysplasia: Molecular Heterogeneity and Therapeutic Approaches

Achondroplasia and Other FGFR3-related Short Limbed Dysplasia: Molecular Heterogeneity and Therapeutic Approaches

DOWNLOAD THIS BOOK FREE HERE

https://upsto.re/DEBkcqH

This book discusses achondroplasia and other FGFR3-related short limb dysplasias, their molecular heterogeneity, and therapeutic approaches. Achondroplasia is dominantly inherited and one of the most common genetic causes of non-lethal short limb skeletal dysplasia due to mutations in FGFR3. Other FGFR3-related short limb dysplasias include hypochondroplasia, thanatophoric dysplasia (type I and type II), and severe achondroplasia with developmental delay and acanthosis nigricans (SADDAN). Suppression of proliferation and differentiation of chondrocytes in the growth plates (as a result of a specific gain-of-function mutation in the transmembrane domain of FGFR3) is the underlying mechanism. Most of the clinical and radiological features of achondroplasia are either direct or indirect consequences of this suppression of endochondral bone growth due to overexpression of FGFR3 signaling. Downstream C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) antagonism to FGFR3 activity can be used as a potential therapeutic strategy in achondroplasia. A new era has been entered with the phase 2 trial of CNP analogue BMN 111 showing promising results in children with achondroplasia. This has demonstrated that curing patients with skeletal disorders is not a dream anymore
