Buteyko Breathing Center student from Canada shares his story of transforming his life through the Buteyko Breathing Normalization training:
I decided to learn the Buteyko method because I had problems in my life. I was grieving over the loss of my parents, also my wife was suffering from cancer. So, I was challenged by life and realized I need to change something. One night I woke up breathing through my mouth, my heart was racing, and I started searching for a solution. I found a book about the Buteyko method and exercises and reading it, I realized that something was wrong with my breathing and I needed to switch to nose breathing. This is why I decided to learn Buteyko. As a result of these circumstances, I experienced a high level of stress, anxiety, and fatigue. Before this six-month period, I lived a normal life, though I had allergies; however, they were considered kind of normal. At a certain point, I realized that I was not even able to walk outside breathing through my nose; I was breathing through my mouth.
I was not able to improve my breathing considerably by reading the books about the Buteyko method, and this is why I decided to work individually with a Buteyko practitioner. It has been one year since I began the Buteyko Breathing Normalization training with Sasha, and I feel that I am still learning the method. When I started this online course, my Control Pause was low and today it is above sixty seconds in the morning. Sometimes, even ninety seconds.
I lost weight and this helps to maintain healthy breathing.
I realized that the breath is the guide, and I follow it because it is not only a good indicator of how you are today, but also it will lead you to better lifestyle choices. It will also help you to connect with people. Just connect with the breath and put your awareness on your breath day and night. Just follow your breath…
