Miracle of Buteyko Breathing Measurably Improves My Life *

Freddy helped by Breathing Normalization

I first learned about Sasha’s work as a Certified Advanced Breathing Normalization Specialist from some friends of mine who are from Amsterdam, Holland. It came up in a conversation about how their daughter had been able to stop using an inhaler (a common recommendation for treating asthma) by focusing on the kind of therapy that Sasha offers.

My experience in learning about Breathing Normalization has been life changing in many ways. It began by being conscious about my breath and how it impacts every area of my life. I have had some challenges such as sleep apnea and carrying excessive body weight. As Sasha pointed out that over-eaters are over-breathers, it has awakened me to be effortlessly conscious of my breath throughout the day and even as I doze off to sleep at night. I have learned how excessive breathing through my open mouth is, and has been, harmful to my wellbeing.

I Admire The Strength Of Ludmila And Dr. Buteyko *

Monica helped by Breathing Normalization

I found the Buteyko Method after discovering that I needed to learn to breathe better (whatever that meant) due to having a condition called Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a nerve impingement issue in the neck, under the collarbone and pectoral minor. It can be a disabling condition but, luckily that was not my case. In my research for the impingement, I read that The Buteyko Method could tame asthma, so that piqued my interest.

Years ago, I had severe asthma but it did subside. During the past winter though, I was starting to wheeze again. I suppose due to my past experience I was tolerating symptoms more than I realized. I now had two health reasons to continue on. Then I became curious about what Dr. Buteyko had learned on his spiritual journey through the method he discovered. So I signed up for the Level 1 Breathing Normalization Course. How very fortunate!

Buteyko Breathing Normalization Made Me Healthy Again *

Breathing Normalization helped by Breathing Normalization

I feel so blessed and honored having just completed my course with Sasha in the Buteyko Breathing Normalization method. I feel healthy again after years of decline and I have my life back..

My health issue is perhaps very common because I did not have any particular devastating symptoms such as asthma. Rather, at 75 years old I was losing energy, strength and the desire to live, while my usual activities were becoming so difficult to perform I was spending most of my time "resting" or "taking the day off." I was falling into depression and mental dullness.

Pranayama, Buteyko, Breathing, Asthma *

Breathing, Pranayama, Buteyko, and AsthmaI always had about six inhalers, one near my bed, one in the car, one in my pocketbook, an extra in my closet and one in my gym bag. It’s not that I needed them all the time, but if I felt my breathing was tight, or I was exposed to any trigger, I wanted to be prepared, to ward off a potential asthma attack. And I was tired of it. Getting a cold quickly turned into bronchitis, which meant weeks on steroids and tripling of my rescue inhaler. Many times I wasn’t even sure if I would have an attack, but the whole point was I needed them close by “just in case.”

Alternative Approach To Breathing Improves Energy Level*

EAC Headshot 2Dear Thomas,

I'm nearing completion of my Level 1 training in the Buteyko Breathwork, and I just wanted to write to let you know what an amazing experience this has been for me.  I started the Breathwork with the intention of raising my overall energy level, which was not good, and optimizing both my physical and spiritual health. 

When I began the Breathing Normalization work, I had for some time been experiencing a combination of confusion and apathy that were severely getting in the way of doing what I wanted to do in my life.

Breathing Technique Gets Rid Of Anxiety Panic Attacks*

margaret Carson

Being able to breathe is an amazing gift. I am 30 years old and the majority of my life was spent not breathing properly. I've always been an anxious person but my anxiety continued to get worse starting in high school. My anxiety had turned into a panic disorder by the time I had got to college. Attending class was difficult and I ended up in the hospital after a massive panic attack.

July 2013

Drakon,

Today I climbed 2,100 feet to the summit of Angel's Landing. It's a 5-mile round trip. I am so thankful to you and the Breathing Center for making it possible. When I met you 6 months ago, I could barely climb a flight of stairs and now look at me!

Aloha, Anja Hose

 

Not Sick For 3 Years Thanks To Natural Breathing Approach*

Mike GosselinHello Sasha,

I haven't been in touch with you for quite some time now and I've been wanting to give you and Thomas an update on how I have been doing. But first I would like to say that unfortunately my job has kept me from attending the continuing education seminars on Saturdays and it has become quite stressful due to a lack of help. The good news is that I don't let that stress affect my breathing anymore.

Adenoid Removal Avoided After Breathing Normalization Training*

Our 5-year-old son, Tommy, has always been a restless sleeper. In January  2013, we noticed that he was experiencing sleep apnea episodes and was snoring heavily. So we scheduled an appointment with an ENT who told us that Tommy's adenoids were obstructing 90% of his nasal airway and would need to be removed.

Training In Natural Solution For Anxiety Brings Improvement*

Ivette office

Approximately a year ago I found myself in a very dark place. I was overloaded, I felt extreme anxiety, I did not sleep well and it felt like the physical effects of these experiences were more and more evident.  I did not see a solution to this situation. With the negative effects of my daily experiences I continued dedicating time to my responsibilities, despite the extremely painful symptoms I was encountering.

Emotional, Physical, & Spiritual Improved By Breathing Technique*

Paulo Vicentini

I'm really glad I had the opportunity to have this introduction in my life. It’s really interesting how the emotional, mental, physical and even spiritual things have changed in a better way when associated to these techniques. Breathing Techniques have been part of my life since Breathing Normalization Specialist Ivan Pardo introduced to me to them.  I am now aware of my breathing in a positive way during the continuous activities of my day and have experienced a decrease in unhealthy food cravings.  I sleep better at night and therefore wake up earlier, happier, and with tons more energy.  I get so much done in the mornings now! The Breathing Normalization method is an outstanding technique that has showed me how to manage my health.  I am so grateful that Dr. Buteyko’s method is now a part of my life.

Sincerely, 
Paulo Vicentini

Skills To Handle Breathing Difficulties Without Medicine*

Sharon Porello

I wanted to let you all know I'm getting more comfortable with my breathing practice. I'm improving every day. With Thomas Yakovlev-Fredricksen’s help I'm incorporating relaxation and breathing techniques into my everyday life.

As I'm getting deeper into this practice I'm seeing the symptoms that brought me to The Breathing Center incrementally improving.  I'm sure there must be many people like myself that could benefit from Breathing Normalization. I'm a high school nurse and I see the need for students to develop these skills to handle breathing difficulties, asthma and anxiety without using medicine every day. My goal is that one day, after I've internalized and totally incorporated the Breathing Normalization Method into my own life, to be able to pass on this knowledge to students and faculty as a Breathing Normalization Specialist.

Karey Pohn, Jd, PhDMy experience as I learn "Breathing Normalization"

I wanted to write you and tell you how amazed I am at the Breathing Normalization Process.  Even though I am only partway through the process, I have already noticed many changes in my health, anxiety levels, and my reactions to things. My breathing is better, I feel healthier, and am making better food choices. Instead of reaching for food to quell my anxiety, I now use the Breathing Normalization techniques.

My Chiropractor Says Keep Doing It - Breathing Normalization*

Macomb Autism Society

As I am reviewing my Breathing Normalization specialist training materials, I had to pause to share some news and express my appreciation for all of you once again, as well as share my small triumphs...

On a personal note, I've experienced some very encouraging results. My chiropractor told me, "whatever you are doing, it's working so keep doing it!" She said my improvement in my right leg and hip is quite miraculous. She told me for now I only need to see her once a week, and soon only as-needed. She said my progress is amazing. I attempted to explain that it is breathing, but she didn't seem ready to wrap her brain around that concept. She assumes it is my yoga. But in all honesty my muscles are dramatically relaxing, making my yoga (and cardio) much easier.
