You will learn techniques and guidelines that will allow you to retrain your breathing.

All Buteyko Clinic one to one online sessions are taught by Ciaran Mckeown.

The Buteyko breathing method is a series of exercises that retrains your breathing so that your breathing is continually: Effortless, slow and gentle, that it is nasal, driven by your diaphragm with your mouth closed and with a correct tongue posture. And finally that there is a natural pause after each exhalation.

Nasal diaphragmatic breathing influences the parasympathetic nervous system, the rest and digestion state. It is shown to reduce the levels of the stress hormone cortisol in the body. It is also proven to lower heart rates and blood pressure. For anxiety sufferers, the greatest benefit is that it prevents the onset of hyperventilation and fight or flight symptoms.

Each session is sixty minutes long.

The cost for the session is $95 USD. There are no other fees.
