Experience the Buteyko breathing journey to find out how you can enhance your overall health and well-being. In today’s high stress world, the tendency to over-breathe is very common. Take a minute to examine your breathing? Do you breathe slowly and mindfully through your nose? Probably not, unless you are an avid Yoga practitioner. In fact, recent studies have shown 30 to 50 percent of people do not breath properly through their nose but over breathe through their mouth.

Over breathing can lead to health conditions including:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Fatigue
  • Sinus issues
  • Anxiety
  • Headaches
  • Reduced athletic performances
  • Sleep Disorders
  • Asthma

What is Buteyko Breathing?

Buteyko breathing is basically a breath retraining program. It helps reduce the number of breaths you take each minute to slow your breathing and ensure that inhalation occurs solely through the nose. It teaches patients to breathe using the diaphragm and good posture.

What Are the Benefits of Breathing Through the Nose?

Our noses were meant to be more than a defining part of our face. They were designed to:

  • Filter out irritants and allergens
  • Naturally increase production of EPO (Erythropoietin) from the kidneys, and red blood cells from the spleen
  • Improve oxygenation for working muscles and organs
  • Reduce lactic acid buildup and fatigue
  • Improve sleep and energy

What About Breath Work for Sports?

Do you believe that taking deep breaths while you exercise and when you rest will increase oxygen levels? By taking big gulps of air, you are in fact limiting improvements to your fitness level. It is no wonder that some athletes find it extremely difficult to improve their performance beyond a certain point. The Buteyko Method teaches you the most efficient way to breathe during non-exertion so that when you are working out or competing your performance levels increase. 

How Long Before You See A Difference?

Most individuals experience easier breathing, more energy, better sleep, improved asthma symptoms and nasal congestion, and an increased feeling of calm and relaxation in as quickly as a few weeks.
