Why am I so passionate about teaching about Healthy Breathing?
When I was in my mid 30’s I became extremely sick. I had a collapsed lung, chronic bronchitis and I was told by the doctors that I was developing an auto-immune disease called Sarcoidosis that often attacks the lung and that I had developed late-onset asthma.
Also at this time I was snoring loudly each night and was told by my partner that I was holding my breath during sleep. I know now that I was developing sleep apnea.
My breathing issues that had always been with me were now making me seriously ill. I was off work for 3 weeks and was told that the only option for me was to take medication long term to manage my breathing.
It was at this difficult time that I learned about the Buteyko Breathing Method.
I realised that with practice and perseverance I had the ability to take back control over my breathing, to learn healthy breathing habits and patterns and to transform my energy levels and quality of life in doing so.
The transformation that I experienced as a result of training myself about healthy breathing inspired me to share my knowledge and skill in this area with others.
I am excited to provide breathing education programmes that can benefit people of all ages.
You can do it too. With a willingness to learn about healthy breathing, applying the principles of good breathing and practising the exercises provided you can transform your relationship with your breath.
