For 15 years or so I had been a chronic hyperventilator, suffered anxiety attacks, depression, insomnia, sleep apnea and a lot of chronic pain from a motorcycle accident I had after the separation of my marriage. I moved to take on tertiary education. Just starting study in a new town I saw an advert for the Buteyko Breathing method. I didn’t believe I had time or the ability to commit to learning breathing exercises.
I was in my final and fifth year of study and thought, “I still have all these conditions, I need to do something to make a change to my life and my health”.
