Buteyko Breathing Method

The Buteyko Institute Method (BIM) is a breathing retraining program based on standard medical principals of respiration. Specific breathing exercises are used to reset and normalise breathing parameters like rhythm, volume, and breathing rate in a holistic way.

Retraining the breath aims at resetting the tolerance levels to carbon dioxide of our brain resulting in calmer and quieter breathing.

Breathing is a central core action of the body and if it becomes out of balance we can develop illnesses overtime which can become chronic. Many chronic ailments are related to spasm in the smooth muscle systems of our body which can result in compromised release of oxygen from the blood. Normalising our breathing pattern can provide the body (brain, vital organs and cells) with better oxygenation so we can function more efficiently.
