The Breath & Exposure program was born out of a desire to not only provide, but evolve and diversify how breathwork, ice and heat exposure are shared in the health and wellness space. What makes B&E particularly unique is congruent with what makes DEUCE Gym like no place on Earth – a commitment to world-class coaching and education, embedded within remarkable culture. While this isn’t the only space in Los Angeles, let alone the world, that offers ice baths and saunas, what separates B&E from the rest is its expansive curriculum and community. Students have a wide array of options to access the program.

Health & Safety Protocols for COVID-19
In accordance with the additional safety measures required at this time, the following modifications have been made to ensure the health of all students:
- Mandatory temperature reading and hand washing before class
- Guided breathwork and ice baths
- Classes capped at 8 students to accommodate breathing & icing 6 feet apart. (Please note: Classes must be reserved ahead of time via PushPress.)
The B&E Curriculum
This ain’t just about increasing “parasympathetic tone.” Learn and experience the benefits of nasal breathing for performance and for health, to improve your C02 tolerance and to feel better.
A fancy word for any breath hold, we’re borrowing from the best diver’s apnea protocols to take your lungs to the next level.
Interested in reaping some of the same benefits of high-altitude training, at sea level? You’ll learn how systematically training with low oxygen lends itself to massive improvements in aerobic capacity.
Did you know our nervous, cardiovascular, endocrine, and muscular systems all have natural mechanisms in place to handle cold adaptation? Boost your immune system, rev your metabolism, and increase circulation & feel good hormones, including dopamine and norepinephrine.
Sauna time can improve longevity, endurance and aerobic capacity, cognitive function, our skin and our immune system, and also stimulate muscle growth. From seminar to 101 to 202, our B&E curriculum offers progressively more advanced experience and information to help you best utilize the sauna for your performance and health goals.
Mandatory. The backbone and x-factor to all of this.
Ice baths are cold! Saunas, in all their spa-like connotation, are still hot. And developing capacity with breathwork, though accessible, is anything but easy. Yet, when we do these things together at DEUCE, something remarkable happens: it becomes fun.
Breath & Exposure is for everyone. If you’re curious about it, please know that’s the only prerequisite to participating that you’ll need.
