Betsy Thomason, BA, RRT
Betsy Thomason, founder and CEO of OutBreath Institute, is dedicated to her own well-being so that she can help others reach their highest potential. She is always stretching her limits no matter whether cross country skiing on a blustery Vermont day with grade school kids or learning audio engineering in order to have a talk show on community radio. For Betsy, life continues unfolding each day.
The author of Just Breathe Out — Using Your Breath to Create a New, Healthier You, Betsy draws on her life and work experiences to guide her passion to help others create their own well-being and excel. She has worked as a grade school teacher; a NewYork State Licensed Wilderness Guide and founder of Adventures for Women; a free-lance writer for business and respiratory magazines; and founder and president of the Bergen County chapter of the New Jersey Association of Women Business Owners. She is retired from over 25 years as a licensed respiratory therapist mostly working in home care, helping people with neuromuscular respiratory issues requiring mechanical ventilation.
Now Betsy is reinventing herself, discovering creative ways to “retread,” rather than retire. She coaches folks — on the phone and in person — who wish to learn the BreatheOutDynamic system. This includes people healing from ALS www.healingals.org and people managing the debilitating aftereffects of covid. Writing continues to pique Betsy’s imagination, whether fiction, creative non fiction, or commentary.
Of course, being outdoors is part of her everyday life.
“Breathing out thoughtfully, as represented in Just Breathe Out, is the concept that links BODs to yoga, west to east, new with ancient. As a pathologist, I can tell you that the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide in human tissue affects every chemical reaction in the body, which in turn affects all mental and physical abilities. Betsy Thomason’s sincere efforts focusing on the outbreath will help all people, but especially those with respiratory illness.”
