About Me

Meet the owner of Your Breath – Brian Murphy.

Why am I so passionate about teaching about Healthy Breathing?

Ever since I was a young boy I struggled with my breathing. It was always my breathing that held me back in sports. I was never really comfortable with the control I had over my breathing. Running in cold winter air always brought on immediate coughing fits for me. I learned to live with my breathing challenges, not knowing that there was another way to breathe.

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.

I'm a true lifelong learner with passion for personal development.

It is in the sharing of what I have learned, the information and skills that I find my Life Purpose in.

The ideas, concepts I share in my Breathing Programmes combine the Practical and the Informational.

Understanding myself and how I process information so that I can be of highest service to my clients is very important to me.

Holistic Approach to Wellbeing

Honouring the fact that I am highly sensitive and providing my Breathing Programmes and work in a way that best supports my clients has been a huge step forward for me. It is only by truly knowing and understanding ourselves, our strengths and weaknesses that we can truly help others.

Since 2019 I have been receiving training and mentoring from Heather Domminick in the United States in the area of Highly Sensitive Leadership Programmes. This has allowed me to show up each day motivated to help, support and guide others through my breathing programmes.
