Athlete Turns Breathing Difficulties Into Breathing Benefits *

Listen to the conversation between Lawrence and Sasha Yakovleva, Buteyko Specialist about breathing problems and physical activities, especially biking.

This is the story of Lawrence, an asthmatic man who was not able to exercise without having coughing fits, mucus, and taking several types of medication. Eight years ago, after reading The New York Times article about Buteyko Breathing Center, he took Buteyko Breathing Normalization Training and was able to stop taking his medication. Most importantly, since then he has never again suffered from asthma or any breathing difficulties. Now, being in his 60s, he enjoys his active lifestyle, strong health, and asthma-free life.

We cannot guarantee identical results to everyone who contacts the Breathing Center. Also, please keep in mind that our services are educational, not medical.
