We mostly live our life without paying much attention to our breath. Unless you practicing "pranayama" (yoga) or one of your exercise teachers mentioned something about it to you during your practice. The good news is that breathing is happening to our body no matter if we are aware of it or not!
But are you are chest breather, belly breather or diaphragmatic breather? Do you know the difference? Do you know that our breath has an impact on you wellbeing, sleep & general health?
A Ukrainian doctor, Konstantin Buteyko, created the Buteyko breathing technique (BBT) in the 1950s. This therapeutic breathing method uses breath retention exercises to control the speed and volume of your breath. This helps you to learn to breathe more slowly, calmly, and effectively.
The benefits of Buteyko breathing include enhanced breath control, which helps to prevent breathlessness and promote proper breathing patterns. It’s used to manage and improve a variety of conditions, including asthma, anxiety, and sleep concerns.
Buteyko breathing has several benefits that relate to its ability to improve breath awareness, encourage nostril breathing, and limit overbreathing.
By practicing the technique you’ll learn to breathe properly and efficiently, which can help prevent issues such as wheezing, coughing, and feeling short of breath. It can also help to alleviate unnecessary coughing and clear blocked nasal passages.
Buteyko breathing teaches you to breathe more gently and less rapidly. You’ll learn to breathe slower and deeper, which balances your breathing rhythms.
It involves exercises that teach you to hold your breath and refrain from breathing. It’s said that over time the breathing technique will become a natural part of your daily life.
In my classes I encourage practitioners to strictly nose breath and use the diaphragmatic breathing technique. I create awareness for the Buteyko breathing method as it restored my health so I want to share it with others.
For almost 20 years, the patented Face Former has been the a holistic solution for permanently eliminating the causes of snoring, sleep apnea, breathing interruptions and CMD.
The cause-oriented and functional training with the Face Former provides the necessary strengthening and tightening of the pharyngeal muscles, the correction of false movements and the re-learning of natural movement patterns.
Aids to combat symptoms, such as sleep masks and splints, are no longer necessary. Regular Face former training actively tones tissues, muscles and skin in the mouth and face. It strengthens and harmonizes muscle functions that are particularly important for chewing, swallowing, speaking, breathing, tooth position as well as facial expressions and tightening of the skin.
To correct & heal the mentioned conditions above the faceformer training needs to be performed several times a day for a period of several months. Please check out the manufacturers website for more information & guidance.
In order to educate students about this effective, holistic tool I started using the FF in my classes to promote and ensure nose breathing during the workouts!
