Kevin McQuaid

Kevin McQuaid

London

I have spent the last 3 years reading, investigating, and learning as much as I can about breath-work, breathing practices, and protocols to improve my day to day health and athletic performance. Of all the methods I’ve come across I have found the Oxygen Advantage to be the most simple and effective to integrate into everyday life and see measurable positive benefits. As a keen amateur runner, the introduction of nasal breathing has proven key in improving my running form and times.  

Having worked in the fashion industry for 17 years, I changed careers to retrain as a primary school teacher 10 years ago. One of the most appealing elements to me of the Oxygen Advantage was the benefit it would have in helping young children learn and embed suitable breathing patterns that would last with them throughout life, reducing the challenges that breathing pattern disorders will lead do. It is never too early or too late to make positive changes in lifestyle and it all starts with the breath – change this and you change everything. 

With the vastly different experiences, I have gained in both the commercial sector and working in primary education, I have the experience to present, coach, and deliver from individuals to larger business organisations. 

If you are looking to improve your day to day health; feel less stressed; manage your emotional load; improve your athletic performance or help develop focus within your company, I offer 1-2-1, small group classes, and larger open workshops teaching the Oxygen Advantage techniques. I enjoy working with complete beginners through to trained athletes – always tailoring programmes to completely suit each individuals needs.

Anastasis Tzanis

From Greece to New York to London – Anastasis serviced the Greek Special Forces as a paratrooper for 1 year, traded currency derivates in New York and London for 7 years and picked up a couple of other dopamine-driven hobbies along the way. During his years in banking, he noticed how detrimental stress can be on our bodies – leading to stiffness, early aging, and injury.

This led him to begin his yoga practice and studies in nutritional therapy in 2009 where he developed a wellness protocol different from everyone else. Through a combination of both traditional and innovative yoga modalities paired with the fundamentals of breathwork, Anastasis has created a holistic experience modeled bio-individuality for each of his client’s personal needs and goals.

His greatest influences are leading experts such as Patrick McKeown & Wim Hof, which led him to his awarding as a top yoga teacher in London by About Time magazine (in 2017), teaching the breathing module at the HotPod Yoga Teacher’s Training (since 2018) and leading the wellness offsite for the Crisis Management team of Apple (in 2019).

Anastasis strives to provide his clients, individuals as well as companies, with an achievable, individualised plan and full-time, reliable support throughout its implementation.
