Last fall I experienced a sudden onset, scary, weeks-long episode with hyperventilation. After much online research, I chose the Breathing Center over other Buteyko programs being offered. I wanted teachings from as close to the source as possible, and I felt that Sasha and Thomas’ direct study with Ludmila Buteyko and Dr. Andrey Novozhilov in Moscow would connect me with that. When I began working with Thomas about 3 months ago, I had no idea of the kind of transformations I would soon be experiencing.
I made room in my life to apply the 3X/day practice as Thomas prescribed. I also began paying attention to my breath as often as possible.
Within the first month, something started shifting in my psyche; the softer breath opened a door.
